Runes are an ancient alphabet, used for writing, divination and magic

One who aspires to become adept with rune must have some knowledge 
of  the  mythology,  culture  ,  and  history  of  ancient  Europe.

Runes are an ancient Germanic alphabet, used for both writing and magic. They were used throughout northern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, and Iceland from about 100 B.C.E. to 1600 C.E. Runic inscriptions of great age have even been found in North America, supporting stories that the Vikings arrived in the America long before Columbus.

Runes are an oracle from which one seeks advice. They work best if you detail your current circumstances and then ask a specific question. Rune readings sometimes may seem obscure. They hint toward answers, but you have to figure out the details.On the contrary some times the Runes may be more certain and their meaning becomes instantly clear.

Runic divination is not "fortunetelling" in the sense that you actually can see the future. Instead, runes give means of analyzing the path that one is on and a likely outcome. The future is not fixed. It constantly changes with everything you do.

Since ancient times, runes have been used for divination and magic, as an addition to writing. The word "rune" actually means mysteryor secret. Each rune has hidden meanings and properties associated with it, beyond its mundane meaning and phonetic value. Each translates into a word or a phrase signifying concepts important to the people who used them, representing the forces of nature and mind. Each rune has a story attached to it, a relationship to a Norse God.

Runic alphabets first appeared among German tribes in central and eastern Europe. Some runes symbols have been acquired from other alphabets, such as the Greek, Etruscan, and the Early Roman. The runes were made of straight lines to make the characters suitable for cutting into wood or stone. The earliest runic inscriptions on stone are dated to the late 3rd century AD, although it is probable that runic alphabets had been in use for some centuries before.
