What Are Runes?
Runes are divination tools from which one can seek advice or further develop psychic abilities. They are comprised of 24 small tiles or stones that have letters or characters carved on them, resembling primitive markings. Similar to tarot cards, runes are used to get insight or messages from the collective consciousness.
Essentially, runes are much like many of the other psychic tools that can help you if you believe in the ability for either you as rune reader, or a professional rune reader, to give you spot-on messages. Granted, at times you may get obscure readings, which is alright. Sometimes it takes time and practice to become adept at getting clear answers.

Meaning Of Runes:
The meaning of the “Rune” is a mystery or something that is a secret or whisper. There is a different esoteric meaning to each Rune and each Rune also has esoteric properties. Essentially, there is a story to each Rune associated with it and each Rune has also a connection to a Norse God. It takes a great deal of time to really become adept at just how runes can help you spiritually, as it’s not as simple as some of the other divination tools out there.
Rune Casting is not necessarily fortunetelling. Yes, it can help you regarding information about your future, but it’s not always about the future. However, you may be able to see your future with the help of Rune Casting, also called as “Runic divination”. Some believe that the future is uncertain and may not be able to be changed, although many believe that we can indeed change our future, especially if we are given special insight. What you do today most likely makes a difference for your future tomorrow. If a person doesn’t like the Rune Casting prediction, then he or she can definitely change the paths.
History of Runes:
According to history, central and eastern Europe first started the use of Runic alphabets. Some of the symbols have been adopted from the alphabets like Greek, Etruscan, and the Early Romans. The Runes characters were cut into wood or stone pieces.
There are 24 Runes in the Old Germanic Runic alphabet also known as Elder Futhark. Futhark is the first six Runes alphabet. The Runes then spread on the northern side into Scandinavia. The Runic Alphabets then reduced to 16 and Runes Symbols have been dropped down as well.
When Britain had been invaded by the three Germanic tribes, the Angles, Jutes, and the Saxons, these tribes brought Runes along with them in between 400 and 600 AD. That time most of the forms of the Runes have been changed particularly for C/K, A/O, J, H, S, and Ng.
