What you'll learn
  • Rune Readings (like tarot sort of)
  • Rune magic
  • Different ways to cast runes and lay them for information
  • Hand magic
  • Talismans
  • An open mind and willingness to learn

  We go through a lot of change in life and just like taking a map or gps on a road trip its nice to see what is ahead in life. Runes help us see the situation with more information, more knowledge of what is going on. They don't tell us what to do or seal our fate. They allow us more information to make better decisions about life.

   In this course we will be looking at the Elder Futhark. It is a set of 24 runes. We will look at their historic meanings but also how to develop your own personal meaning for them.

   Using those runes we will learn how to do several different readings.

  • single rune readings

  • three rune readings

  • 24 rune inner journey reading

  • yearly forecast

  • Traditional Valknutr reading both 3 and 9 rune

Another side of the runes is not using them for divination but using them for magic. Whether you need extra help with wealth and money magic, defense, grounding, or meaning to life the runes can guide you and make your path smoother.  This can be as simple as focusing on their energy to no longer be bothered by harassing co-workers, to creating complex talismans for any purpose you have. We will go over some basics of magic in three categories.

  • Energy visualization (Most practical for everyday use)

  • Talismans

  • Hand magic

In a time when information can't be relied on coming from other people we need a way to figure out the truth. After the truth is found we need the energy to act on it. The runes give us both of those things. If you feel it is time to take your life in your own hands (literally if you are using hand magic) then this course may be a gateway to a whole new future.

Who this course is for:
  • Those who want to learn how to get more information that is hidden to them
  • Those who are ready to take control of their lives

Inexperienced. Those who work with it know that you do not

grasp it but become it. This can bring awakening but must

not be barged into. Divine communication is at hand. This

force can be used both as a protection or can be pointed

outward and used as an attack on your opponents.

Often this doesn’t depict a person but divine beings.

judgement and justice to be found. Victory can be expected

if you act wisely and rationally but it may involve self

Sacrifice. Loyalty, truthfulness, and faithfulness must be

practiced and expected. Work with analytical methods and

scientific and mathematical processes.

or new aspects to current ones. Forms of aggressive, crafty,

or dishonest means may be necessary to achieve your goals.

see things for what they are. Awakening is happening.

This rune indicates any type of people who are seeking.

Depression from feeling hopeless and perceiving things that are not reality. Dwelling on mortality to much and becoming weak with fear from that knowledge. Bad relationships based on lies and misunderstandings. Blocking mannaz leads to living in an alternate reality, blindness, and selfishness.


Bright Reading:

You will be facing tests in your life but will find the

energy to overcome them. Your true self will evolve through

these tests. Water takes little effort to change from one form to

another. Controlling yourself you will find what you need. Do

not fear the journey even if you must “go under” to find your

goal. Personal growth will happen even if it comes through

uncomfortable situations. This may represent a sailor, or fisherman.

Murk Reading:

Fear of change and taking the journey will freeze you in place. There is a danger of walking in circles so that you don’t have to go down the right path. You may be failing a test of initiation in your life. Blockage of this force will dam up the power to grow and you will wither and come to poverty. Access to your deeper self will be blocked.

true self and energy. This allows things to gestate and be

ready to act when the time is right. Patience is require.

a state of rest actively waiting to be unleashed for their design

and purpose. This may signify a farmer or priest.

Blockage of this stage may lead to running short of energy, power, or strength to make it through the journey you have started on. You may also find yourself moving but without the strength to change.


Bright Reading:

The Day brings light and awareness. Things that may

have seemed confusing spontaneously appear clear. It is the

ultimate source of hope and happiness. A great awakening

and vision can be gained. This rune also shows polarities in

life. It is the true vitki and seeker that will find the common

aspects of life both the light in the dark and the dark in the light.

This rune represents someone who is seeking.

Murk Reading:

Day is hard to see as a murk stave but sometimes it comes to soon in someone’s life who isn’t prepared for it. Just as we can spend to much time in the sun dwelling on only the day can burn you and make you only see a specific point of view. Blockage of Dagaz will lead to blindness, boredom, hopelessness, and death.


Bright Reading:

You will be experiencing stable living and family life.

Peaceful living with your family, friends, or work and a

continued growth. You must be vigilant to maintain the order,

structure, and defense of the group. Freedom and safety are

felt in the group or home. You may find that this is a time you

finally find a home or new dwelling to call yours. This rune may

about a leader or about an entire group.

Making your own runes will give you a better connection with them.

It is not important what you use. You can use many different things.




Making your own runes

In this exercise we look at the rune and how multiple runes work together and how to read their meanings when there are multiple runes in the reading.

Reading Exercise (See how runes relate to each other)
Single Rune Reading
Inner Readings by the Furthark Order

The runes have different meanings. We call them Bright and Murk.

It doesn't mean just being happy and sad, or good and bad.

We look at how to actually see if the rune should be read as a bright staff or murk staff in this section.

Reading Murk readings
Yearly Forecast

This works with the traditional Udhr Verhandi and Skuld rune reading.

Also for a more comprehensive reading it does the 9 rune reading the Valknutr ( the knot of the slain)

The Valknutr is a great reading if you want to get a better understanding and a deeper meaning about a current situation. Each set of three shows a fuller meaning of the root, current, and future or reality of the situation.
