About The Viking Rune Stones
The rune stones and their meanings, an ancient anglo-saxon alphabet in the time of Odin (old Norse od, meaning ‘spirit’), ( over 2000 years old ) similar in intent and purpose to the Celtic alphabet the Ogham.
No one really knows the origins of the runic alphabet nor their meanings, sometimes called Viking runes the elder futhark is still a mystery. Neither alphabet was ever used as a language as such, rather sign posts, protective symbols, a form of communication, grave stone markings names and places and magic. Ancient inscriptions used in spells, manifestation and marked jars of secret potions to describe ingredients to other soothsayers. Runes were also inscribed on weapons and tools to provide magical protection.
The meaning of the word rune or runa translates to secret whisper, the mystery. Through the translation alone tells us why the rune meanings were never recorded, knowledge of runes was passed on by word of mouth. The runes themselves is all we are left with, symbols carved on large rune stones found all over Europe. The last of the rune masters can be traced back to Iceland in the 17 th century.
The elder futhark has fast become a popular divination tool, thanks to movies such as Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings and a string of others. The Germanic Futhark gets its name from its first eight letters, f, u, t, h, a, r, k. The runes have three sets of eight letters (Freyr’s aett. Heimdalls aett, Tyr’s aett.) totalling 24, you may have heard of a blank rune called Odin invented in the 1980s. This rune is not traditional, it is one authors add in, and should not be used in the casting of the runes for divination.
The Ogham Connection
Several of the runes stones still remaining have running around their edge a different alphabet from the runic, but one which still uses short, straight lines. This is the Ogham alphabet. Just like Odin, Ogma is credited with having invented the Ogham script. This method of writing seems to have begun in Ireland, spreading to Wales, Scotland and parts of southern England.
The Ogham forms a sacred system, as well as hidden coded messages which only people of the order understood. The Ogham glyphs were carved around the edge of a stone in order to immortalise a hero, or carved on trees as posters. It is certain that the Druids used the Ogham letters, and again it is interesting to note that Druid teachings of the time were passed on by word of mouth, like those of the Qaballah and of the runes.
I personally have used both oracles for many years, my heritage and passion for the Ogham has been thriving from a small child. I would play in the dirt with stick drawing lines and patterns, later as an adult I came to realise I was drawing the old ancient Celtic alphabet.
Casting The Rune Stones
There are several different ways to cast runes, the most popular is to draw a single rune from a bag. After working with the runes for over thirty years trying many different tarot spreads and casting methods. I find drawing a singular rune to be the most accurate, after all the rune stones are an oracle leading us to make right and correct decisions to bring about a positive rewarding future.
Accept and love all which is inside of yourself
Work with your darkness
Celebrate your light
And allow all others the same privilege. Ian Scott
Place your hand in the bag full of runes move your fingers and hand about until you feel a rune fall into your hand it should require no clasping or grabbing. Some magi and rune masters read a reversed meaning to the runes depending upon which way it is placed after drawing. And some don’t, I fall into the some don’t. I feel a rune falling into one’s hand the magic, not in the way we place it on a table, therefore I don’t read a reversed meaning to the runes. However, if you prefer to read a reversed meaning, remember it is not the opposite of its meaning. A reversed meaning is usually the negative of its meaning. not the polar opposite.
If you’re wanting a more comprehensive answer to a more complicated question. Lay a cloth out on a table shake the runes in your cupped hands and throw them onto the cloth. The runes which fall glyph upwards are the ones you read, start with the closest one to you and so forth.
Rune Stone Divination Meanings
