A Stack Of Ancient Rune Stones The Beginner S Guide To Runes: Divination And Magic With The Elder Futhark Runes

Welcome to the fascinating world of runes! These ancient symbols, carved into stones or wood, hold immense power and wisdom. Throughout history, runes have been used to access the realms of divination, magic, and personal empowerment. Whether you're curious about their historical significance, mystical applications, or simply want to learn more about this intriguing subject, this beginner's guide is your gateway to unlocking the secrets of runes.

What Are Runes?

Runes are the written symbols of the ancient Germanic peoples. Originating from the Nordic and Celtic cultures, these symbols were used as a form of written communication, as well as for magical and ritual purposes. The earliest known runic inscriptions date back to the 2nd century AD, and the runic alphabet, known as the Futhark, evolved over time.

The Futhark is comprised of 24 symbols, each carrying its own specific meaning and significance. These symbols were traditionally carved into stones, wood, or other materials, and were often used for divination, protection, and guidance.

Understanding the Symbolism

Each rune holds a deep metaphysical meaning and tapping into their energy can provide valuable insights and guidance. Here are a few examples of popular runes and their interpretations:

  • Fehu: Represents wealth and abundance.
  • Ansuz: Symbolizes communication and divine wisdom.
  • Algiz: Offers protection and connection to higher realms.
  • Raidho: Signifies travel and new journeys.

When using runes for divination, it's essential to develop a personal connection with each symbol and interpret their messages in a way that resonates with you.

The Practice of Runic Divination

Using runes for divination is a powerful way to seek guidance from the spiritual realm. Whether you're facing a difficult decision or seeking clarity in your life, runes can provide deep insights and answers. Here's a step-by-step guide to performing a simple rune reading:

  1. Prepare your sacred space by lighting candles and clearing your mind.
  2. Select a set of runes or use a virtual rune casting tool.
  3. Focus on your question or the area of your life you'd like guidance on.
  4. Shake or scatter the runes, then randomly select a few.
  5. Read the meanings of the selected runes and reflect on their relevance to your question or situation.
  6. Interpret the symbols intuitively, trusting your inner guidance.
  7. Take note of the messages received and how they apply to your current circumstances.

Remember, practising rune divination requires patience and trust in the process. The more you work with the runes, the more you'll develop your own personal relationship with their energy and wisdom.

Using Runes in Spellwork

In addition to divination, runes can be used in spellwork and magical rituals. Each rune carries a specific vibration and can be combined to create potent intentions and manifestations. Here's a simple example of a rune spell for protection:


  • A piece of black onyx
  • The Algiz rune carved on a small wooden disc
  • A white candle
  • Anointing oil (such as frankincense or lavender)


  1. Light the white candle in a quiet and sacred space.
  2. Anoint the Algiz rune and the black onyx with the anointing oil.
  3. Hold the rune and the black onyx in your hands, focusing on your intention for protection.
  4. Recite a personal affirmation or incantation, expressing your desire for shielding and warding off negativity.
  5. Place the Algiz rune on top of the black onyx and visualize a protective barrier forming around you.
  6. Keep the rune and the black onyx near you or carry them with you as a talisman of protection.

Remember, the key to successful spellwork is your intention and focus. When working with runes, tap into their ancient power and trust in your own abilities to manifest your desires.

Exploring Rune Meditation

Another way to connect with the energy of runes is through meditation. By immersing yourself in the symbolism and vibrations of specific runes, you can access higher states of consciousness and receive profound insights. Follow these steps to embark on a rune meditation:

  1. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed.
  2. Select a rune that resonates with your current intentions or personal development goals.
  3. Hold the rune in your hand or place it in front of you.
  4. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths, allowing your body and mind to relax.
  5. Focus your attention on the rune, allowing its energy to surround you.
  6. Visualize yourself entering the rune symbol, immersing yourself in its vibrations.
  7. Explore the landscape within the rune, observing any images, sensations, or messages that arise.
  8. When you're ready, slowly return your awareness to the present moment.
  9. Journal about your experience, noting any insights or revelations you received.

Rune meditation is a powerful practice for self-discovery, gaining clarity, and spiritual growth. Allow yourself to fully immerse in the energy of the runes and embrace the messages they convey.

As you delve into the world of runes, you'll uncover a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and personal empowerment. Whether you're fascinated by their historical significance, interested in divination, or drawn to their magical applications, the beginner's guide provided here will give you a solid foundation to begin your journey.

Remember, connecting with runes is a deeply personal experience, and the true magic lies within your own intuitive interpretation and connection to their energy. Embrace the power of the runes and let their ancient wisdom guide you along your path.
