Traditionally, Runes would be carved onto wood, stones or bones and kept in a sacred cloth pouch. To conduct a reading, the individual would select runes in the same way as a tarot card. The choice of Runes as well as the way in which they fell would determine the intuitive message.
Just like there are many different tarot card spreads, there are also many different Rune spreads as well, which can be used to receive intuitive messages.
Even though this is not the traditional way to get a Rune reading, I thought it might be fun to offer a version of a reading so you can get a feel for this ancient divination art.
