How to get started with rune stones (a guide)



A while back we got some really beautiful rune stones in our shop.

So, last week I took a bag and started doing some very basic spreads.

Now, I have to admit that divination with runes has never been my one of my strong suits. I have always been more of a tarot cards guy myself...

...but, this has TOTALLY changed my mind about how I feel about rune stones!

So, if you too feel a little intimidated by rune stones, I want to help you out.

And it's actually very easy to cast with runes and I have A VERY SIMPLE spread for you, that you can start to use right away...

It's gonna be a little tricky to explain this, but I'll try to do my very best.

The 5 Stone Rune Casting Method

Before doing anything else, you ask a question. Not just a yes or no question, but something a little more... uhm... tricky...

For example: "What will happen in the next 1-3 months if I do so and so" or "how will my relationship with mr. X turn out if we do this and that"...

You need 5 stones (obviously) and you need to place them kinda in a cross. Like this:

You should pick the stones at random from your Rune Stones bag and place them on the table. For now, just place them all heads up, so you can see the runes (later, when you get better, you can play around with reversed runes as well).

THE ORDER IS SUPER IMPORTANT! So don't just put them randomly.

Start with one stone in the middle and then one to the left, then one below etc. (just like the image above)

Stone #1 represents your current problem or your state of mind. If the stone is negative or if it doesn’t seem to make any sense, it's probably because you are confused right now (e.g. you mind isn't focused) or because you are VERY troubled... Either way, go lay down or meditate for 5 minutes and try again (with a NEW spread).

Now, stone #2 represents the past. What you have gone through and what have brought you to your current situation.

Stone #3 will tell you what you need to deal with. Sometimes it requires help from people or your gods. If it’s a negative stone, it represents an obstacle you need to overcome.

Runestone #4 basically tells you about the stuff you just have to accept. Sometimes there are things you cannot change. Deal with it! At least for now...

And finally, stone number #5  shows you what to expect when you have dealt with the things from stone 3 and accepted the things from stone #4...

Okay so... Keep in mind that this is a forecast. A glimpse of-of the future. As it CAN be. Not necessarily how it WILL be. It all depends on your actions if you follow the advice from the stones.


...this stuff takes a long time to master, so give it time.

And if you think this is cool, you should probably go read some more about it. I am by no means an expert. I just wanted to share my experience with you :)

If you don't have runestones already or a looking for a nice set, you should definitely take a look at these:

They are made from red Jasper stone, which is incredibly nice to work with. They are ultra smooth and feels good in the hand.

You get a total of 25 rune stones. 24 Elder Futhark Runes and 1 blank. Some people like to use the blank one as a destiny rune. I like to just keep it around in case I throw one of the other stones away...

The stones also come in this really nice bag, so you can take them with you or simply keep them safe and sound.

Another cool thing is that each set is unique. Because the runes are on REAL stones, no 2 sets are alike. Pretty cool eh...

Oh... I almost forgot. I have made a super simple PDF with an overview of the stone meanings It uses the elder futhark runic alphabet. The same one as the stones in our shop. I use it myself all the time, but I thought that maybe you could use it as well :)

I imagine that playing with rune stones before I was 18 paved my future for mexample in my life today. I have been waiting for my local crystal people shop to open up. So I can visit the witches who straight up have gifts. Any way i love the lesson and art you have told of the runes you know. My favorite part of the runes are that each symbol once engraved or drawn on its rock and that symbol , magically makes the rock now rune.. a home of that symbol. A magical home for that individual rune symbol . I’m learning and I have the rest of my future to learn more about the rune stones. I’m making my own soon. And I’m using your cheat chart to guide me. I’m going to keep a dairy. And I’m going to hopefully have a great connection with my newest babies. My relatives will hopefully love to learn as I will text them all regarding my favorite readings. And I hope to love my runes and have a love from them and hopefully as I start coming up with questions for them… I pray my runes reward me. Like each rune I pick will be like a star guide or stickers in a sticker book. # collection. I’m really great full for your time. If you read this. Love you. Finding time to rest my mind. And im going to use my manners in so many new ways. I see doors with options and words of opportunities lifting me and filling me. I need help with my mind. And learning more about how to heal through being quite. I’m mysterious. But powerfully perfect with all my aunts and uncles and relatives related through magical doors. When I was Relax and now excited. I want to leave my mark. And let you who may find this note know that I’m a door keeper… and I will listen to your will after you enter. I will help you with your new chapter in a group or camp or army and i will listen to you. And when you see me next for now it’s only in letters… the next time you and I meet will be everything you imagine and more. I’m going to teach those of us how to be the gift. And how to love and support each other through every emotion. I want us to use emotions we can learn from today. The power of law school and attractions… I started my life the hard way. And basics is my new. So thank you goddesses for teaching me the basics.
