Divination. September Pagan Challenge # 10. The runes are my go-to for divination.
This was my prediction for 2021 (you can see the video where I interpret the reading on my YouTube channel).
I made this rune set myself, so when I use it, I feel more connected to it.
I love the runes for many reasons. The meanings are simple on the surface but can have great depth and resonance. They speak of everyday experiences: cattle, wild animals, horses, wheels, ice, waves. There are 33 runes in the Northumbrian futhark (or futhorc if you prefer). For me, the runes act as a door to the realm of experience they represent, instead of a curtain over that door. (My experience of Tarot is that the pictures get in the way.) The runes are also closely associated with Norse mythology and were discovered by Odinn.
