a)      When this rune is drawn you may be certain that something unexpected is going to come to you. Whether this is something positive or negative depends on what you warrant by virtue of your past behavior. Wyrd also suggests that should a certain step be taken, life may never again be the same for you. Trust in yourself.

Rune Casts

Single Rune Draw

For your first reading, concentrate on a general portrayal of your own life to present, then on the present itself, then on the future. These would ideally be done as three separate readings, completed in one sitting. Don't forget to record your experiences. To use the runes for guidance, relax, and focus on the question or situation at hand. When ready, close your eyes and draw a rune from the pouch, look up the meaning and apply it to your question. You can also draw a rune with a simple yes/no question in mind, if the rune is upright the answer is yes, if the rune is reversed the answer is no.

Three Rune Reading


This reading is very effective for answering a specific question on a specific matter. In this reading, three runes are selected unseen and placed side by side. Reading from left to right, the first rune provides an overview of the situation, the second rune identifies the challenge and the third rune indicated the course of action called for. Or alternatively, the first rune indicates the past or lead up, the second the present, and the third the outcome or future. Should the guidance be taken, trust your intuition, if you feel you should draw additional runes for clarification then do so. There are no wrong or miss-chosen runes.

Five Rune Reading

Select five runes one at a time and lay them face down on the rune cloth. [Three runes are placed side by side. One is placed above the center and the final one is placed below the center]. The three horizontal runes represent your past, present, and future. It is usually best to turn over the center rune first. This is the rune of the present and will show your problem as it is now. It can also show your state of mind. A negative rune in this position that does not seem to be in synch with the question can often show that you are of a very troubled and agitated state of mind. The rune in position to left of the center signifies the past and will tell you what was in the past that caused you to be in your current position.


Next read the rune laying above the center. This indicates the help that you can expect to receive in the problem at hand. If there is a negative rune here, it can indicate an unwillingness to accept the advice given by the runes or another person, or it can indicate delays or slight problems that may impede the speedy resolution of the matter in question. The rune below center indicates what aspects of the problem must be accepted and cannot be changed. Positive runes here show a lack of troublesome influences and oppositions, while negative runes show the obstacles to your success. The rune to the right of center is the result rune. This rune indicates the final outcome, given the other factors in the rune cast. Be certain to concentrate on your time frame as well when you are concentrating on your question.
