The First thing to remember when having a Rune or Oracle Reading is that you are consulting an Oracle, it gives you the information and allows you to decide what to make of it. The answers to be found are the ones to be found in yourself.
Runes are an ancient Germanic alphabet, used for writing, divination and magick. 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 Americas long before Columbus.
When you pose your question, be sure to phrase it in a way that there is no doubt as to its meaning.
The One-Rune Method is the easiest and fastest way to obtain a quick peek of what is acting on your life at the present moment. You can also pull a Rune every morning to let you know what kind of energy or events may occur in your day.
The Three Rune Spread is most commonly used to let you know what is happening at your present moment and how to deal with it. This method can be used for yes or no questions also depending on the layout of the Runes and if they are upright or reversed. If more upright runes than reversed ones the answer would be yes and if more reversed runes in the spread then the answer would be no. The Five and Seven Rune Spread are more detailed spreads the Seven Rune Spread usually speaks of events 3 months in the past or 3 months in the future.
