Since time immemorial, the runes have been used by people to understand aspects of their lives – past, preset, and future. Runes were one of the earliest writing systems, consisting of lines that were easily carved into wood or stone. The word “run” means secret or mystery, which is why they have always been associated with magical powers.
While they may not have magical powers, they can help us understand what is going on in our lives at an point. The runes cannot in and of themselves solve our problems, but can help illuminate those problems so that we may be able to find our own solutions.
A set of runes consists of twenty-five stones; twenty-four with a different symbol and one blank. Each stone has its own particular set of meanings and interpretations.
