The meaning and interpretation of runes in divination.
Guessing on runes is considered to be the most accurate and truthful. And this can be confirmed by everyone who has ever watched oval pebbles or small wooden planks on which a unique pattern is carved or carved. What is the meaning of runes in divination?
There are 24 runic symbols in the classical ancient interpretation, but in modern cases they can be up to thirty-three. Each outline has its own symbolic name, for example: sun, birch, man, God, joy, birch, gift, etc. In addition, the rune can be interpreted both in a positive way, and in a negative (inverted position).
Origin of runes.
Translated from the Old German meaning of the word rune can be translated as “mystery”. The secret signs were used by Celtic tribes, and then they spread widely in the Scandinavian countries. Runes themselves, according to one version of the scientists, arose in the 1st century among the ancient Goths, who used the Greek and Latin alphabets.
However, in addition to scientific versions, there are many legends and myths associated with the origin and distribution of runes. So, according to one of the Scandinavian legends, the runes first saw the supreme god Votan (Odin), when he, stabbed himself with a spear, hung on Yggdrasil (a world tree resembling a huge ash-tree symbolizing the universe). Sowing on the tree for 9 days, he got off of him and wrote his first runes on the tree with his own blood. Since then, the Scandinavians used the runes with which the ancient shamans treated people and predicted the future, applied runic symbols on pebbles, on wood sticks, bark of trees (birches) or remains of pottery.
In those days, runic magic was owned by both men and many women.
Today, anyone who wishes can tell fortunes on the runes, because you can do it even on-line. Of course, the mystery of laying the runes out of the pouch specialist on-line fortune telling can not be replaced, but you can find out the answer to the simplest questions in the network.
Basic values and description of runes in a variety of divinations.
Currently, there are several types of the most effective layouts: the situation, the relationship, the overall alignment, mini-guessing on one rune, responding to any particular question posed. In the hands can take part from one to 7 runes, while each will treat a separate issue, but in general, will be drawn a picture of past, present and future events. To unite all the interpretations into one whole and only a runic specialist (oracle) who studies runes can make a definite conclusion. Such an expert will also take into account the fact that the value of runes when guessing on a relationship can differ in the scenario for a certain situation.
So, the values of each rune are individual and can be interpreted depending on the chosen layout and the position adopted in the process of divination – direct or inverted. However, of the 24 runes, there are 8 (9, if we consider the new rune Odin), which always have a direct position and have one meaning. Such runes are called irreversible. These include:
Odin or an empty rune, which appeared not so long ago (in the mid-80s of the 20th century). It is considered optional and even superfluous, nevertheless, often used in the hands. It symbolizes both the beginning and the end, and favors all new beginnings and any changes. Sometimes it is interpreted as a sign of the divine principle. In the situation on the situation, it can mean that this issue does not depend on the person. The decision will be made by God. Saul or rune of the Sun, denoted as a sign resembling a zipper. This is a positive rune, signifying the favorable outcome of any undertaking undertaken. It tells the fortune-teller on a certain path, which should be followed in order to be in harmony with oneself, but at the same time one must find the time to restore vital energy. There is one more meaning of this rune. In some situations, with a certain question, it can mean the healing of the sick person and his healing. Isa or ice, winter, if appeared in the scenario, means a certain period of stagnation in the life of the questioner. This rune looks like a vertical stick. It does not carry negative energy, but at the same time warns that at the moment it is better for a person to “freeze” his plans and wait for a more suitable time. The rune symbolizes the slow, latent development, which will necessarily come in a certain time. Dagaz (day) is a very positive rune, signifying the beginning of any action. This is a breakthrough, a new round in the development of relations or situations, a new turn of events. The rune looks like two triangles connected by one vertex horizontally. She literally tells a person that it’s time for action, for development and new beginnings. Runa is a harbinger of luck and prosperity. Khalaz (hailstones) is a destructive rune. She says that plans for the near future will be destroyed for unforeseen reasons. At first glance, the rune may seem negative, but not all destruction can have a negative value. Sometimes for development, complete freedom and freedom from the accepted rules and obligations is necessary. The appearance of a rune, outwardly reminiscent of the Slavic letter H only with an uneven central line, can mean a rupture of the old to find a new one. Ingus is the rune of fertility. It is a symbol that it’s time to finish what you started. At the moment, to complete the questioner has enough strength. In addition, the rune can mean helping a person from the outside, finding peace by overcoming anxiety. It means a period when you can get out of the state of stagnation and start active actions. In some cases, the appearance of a rune can mean the birth of a child. Eyvaz (protection, the World Tree) is an unusual rune, indicating that obstacles will soon be overcome, but in the case of showing patience and not succumbing to all kinds of temptations. She says that in the plans there can be delays that are not dependent on the person, therefore, in order for everything to be realized, it is not necessary to take active actions, but to wait a little and suffer. Sometimes a fleece appears at a time when a person faces a most difficult choice in life. In this case, the rune recommends not to rush to make a decision and fully trust your intuition so that a truly right decision is made. Yera (year, harvest) is a fairly favorable rune, indicating to the person that in his life any endeavor will be successful. Runa means success in both the love and business spheres, but she warns that there is no need to wait for an instant result. It takes some time before a person can “shake the fruits of his activities.” In this period, you need to show patience and go to the goal, constantly making efforts. Gebo (partnership, gift) – rune, meaning the emergence of some help to achieve the result. The rune looks in the form of the letter X and appears in the case when a person tries alone to implement a plan. She says that the success of the enterprise will take place in the case of fruitful work of the whole team (friends, loved ones, partners, employees). In this case, each participant must have a certain freedom. Runa symbolizes the unity of people (partnership, marriage, conclusion of an agreement). In addition, the appearance of a rune can mean the receipt of a gift.
Of course, the significance of the runes in guessing the situation will depend directly on the questioner’s situation in question. Sometimes, in order to obtain an accurate answer, one uses a rune with the use of reversible runes, which change their value depending on the position. In such cases, the direct position of the rune will mean the answer is “yes”, and the inverted “no”.
