Runes For Divination?

Runes at their heart function as letters, but are capable of so much more. They were used to write various Germanic languages, but also contain magical powers within their inscriptions, according to the sagas. Runes can instill objects with different qualities, protect a person against misfortune, write conjurations, spells, curses, and predict the future, or divination. The earliest written source for possible rune divination was from the Roman Tacitus in the first century A.D. According to Tacitus, the Germanic people would cut branches off a nut-bearing tree, slice it into strips, and mark them with different signs for the use in divination. Tacitus did not specify what the symbols appeared to be that were carved onto the tree strips, though. Although the Elder Futhark Runes were not used until at least 100 years after Tacitus, it is thought that the letters and symbols described by him could be the early workings of what are now runes. 

Rune Stones For Sale

Despite not fully knowing the true potential for runes as tools for divination, it is clear that they are highly magical in purpose, as there are many accounts of their usage in the Sagas. One example is of a Valkyrie assisting a hero achieve glory by teaching him several magical runes to be carved on his sword before battle. Many runes are also used in reaching Norse Pagan magic, as they are great tools in connecting with the Norse Pagan Gods. Just because the historical background for runes in divination is spotty and barely exists, doesn’t mean that they weren’t used for more magical powers than they already are. Tarot cards have many divination capabilities, although when they were first introduced in 1420, they were used more for simple card games among wealthy nobles; it wasn’t until 1770 that tarot cards’ true divinatory powers came alive. Rarely should historical information be the sole key to using spiritual runes for more purposes, although care should be taken. A metaphysical supply store, for example, can help you navigate how you would want to use rune stones for the purpose of divination, and will also have the stones for purchase.
