Runes, like tarot cards and the ancient Chinese divination method I Ching, are primarily divination tools. They originally spread through Europe with help from the Vikings and have helped inspire the fantasy worlds of J.R.R. Tolkein, J.K. Rowling, and George R.R. Martin. When divination is mentioned, many of us think of fortune telling. But divination is simply a means of gaining greater insight into yourself. Using a divination system such as runes can help trigger intuitive associations: when a specific rune symbol is chosen at random, the symbol is interpreted for the deeper meaning it signals.
So, when you pick up a rune card from this illuminating deck, suspend disbelief and consider that you may have just picked it up for a reason. Your unconscious—the wise, intuitive part of you—guided your choice. How will you harness its wisdom?
