Pick A Rune and Find out What It Means For You

Did you know that a choose a rune, meaning a rune test can reveal your destiny or future? Read the following article carefully to know more about this esoteric practice.

What Is A Rune Stone?

Rune is any of the characters of the alphabet set used by the Germans during the time period between the 3rd and 13th centuries. And a rune stone is a raised stone or any boulder with a runic inscription. This practice of inscribing stones with runes was prevalent between the 4th and the 12th centuries.

Rune stones, (sometimes cards), are used as tools of divination; a way to predict one’s future. Rune Stones come in a set of 24 ancient alphabetic symbols. They can be made of different materials, but the ones made of wood or glass are the most common and attractive. Runes are usually kept in a pouch or box and they usually come with a book of instructions defining the symbols.

How To Do A Pick A Rune?

Ideally, runes are cast on an East-West axis or facing the sun. A white cloth is laid down and used to determine the direction of the casting. From here the focus should lie on the pressing question.

After casting the stones onto the cloth the ones which have fallen the right side up are read. Depending upon whether the rune is reversed or not the rune stone meanings will be interpreted accordingly.

An Alternative To Casting The Rune Stones

Pick a rune stone randomly for a day reading; you can also do what is known as a 3 rune spread. Things to remember:

  • Some feel that the day rune is a good way to get an answer to a single question.
  • The 3 Rune Spread is used for asking broader questions
  • The single rune can be drawn on a daily basis.

To start your rune test, select a rune from the image below and find your personal message. You can also try it with actual runes stones and read the meaning here.

When casting runes, if a rune stone falls in an inverted or reversed position, it has a different meaning (as mentioned below each rune) from the upright one.

Pick A Rune Means For You PERTHRO P
Pick A Rune and Find out What It Means For You

A hieratic or mystery rune pointing to the mysteries of the creation which are beyond our frail manipulative powers.

Perth is associated with the Phoenix, the mystical bird which consumes itself in the fire and then rises from its own ashes. Its ways are secret and hidden.

Upright: Powerful forces of change are at work here. What is achieved is not easily or readily shared. After all, to heal and become whole is a profound secret. On the side of the Earthly or mundane, there may well be surprises, gains, or rewards that you did not anticipate.

On the side of human nature, this Rune is symbolized by the flight of the eagle. Soaring flight, free from entanglement, lifting yourself above the endless ebb and flow of ordinary life to acquire a broader vision; all this is indicated here.

Perth stands for the heart of Initiation. Nothing external matters here, except your inner reflection. This rule is concerned with the deepest stratum of our being, the bedrock on which our destiny is founded.

For some, Perth means experiencing some form of death or transition. It means letting go of everything, no exceptions, no exclusions. Nothing less than the renewal of the Spirit is at stake.

Hidden information and truths, mysteries, esoteric, that which is unknown on a conscious level, could come into the light and you would understand the ‘higher meaning’ of things.

Reversed: Events stalled, you need to clear out something, unpleasant surprise, the old way has to come to an end. Do not focus on outcomes nor bind yourself with memories of past achievements, or you will deprive yourself of the true present. When your inner being is shifting and reforming, on a deep level, patience, constancy, and perseverance are called for.

Do not repeat the old – let it go!

The initiation – the veils of the illusion are being lifted – let the old ways go!

Stay centered, see the humor and keep your faith firm.

It shows that as humanity has grown – the possibilities are beyond what was conceived by the original Runes. Some people include the blank rune in a reading – while others leave it out! I prefer to leave it in as the Universe has limitless possibilities!! If you get this Rune – and you believe in yourself – you can manifest anything.
