Elder Futhark Runes
Runes are an ancient form of an oracle, which are used by those seeking advice. Runes have a long history, dating back to the old Germanic and Nordic tribes still widely used today. Anyone can have a rune reading, but it’s also fun to learn how to use them yourself.
The word ‘rune’ means mystery, whisper or secret, and it’s a form of divination or oracle reading system used to help gain insight into situations or questions. Runes can be made of various materials but are most commonly made of stone and feature a symbol from the runic alphabet engraved.There are various types of runic alphabets used on runes, with one of the oldest ones is the ancient Germanic runic alphabet known as ‘Elder Futhark’. The Elder Futhark contains 24 runes, the first six of which spell out the word ‘futhark’.
