Norse Runes are an ancient alphabet used in Germanic countries.
Today, they are used in magic and divination by many Pagans and Wiccans.
Although their meanings can sometimes be a bit obscure,
most people who work with runes
find that the best way to incorporate them into divination is
to ask a specific question based upon your current situation.
Although you don’t have to be of Norse ancestry to use the runes,
you’ll have a far better understanding of the symbols and their meanings
if you have some knowledge of the mythology and history of the Germanic peoples;
this way you can interpret the runes in the context in which they were meant to be read.
