Hi, just had to let you know about a book I am reading. It is called the Rune Primer. An excellent introduction to the real historical side, as well as info on where to find the esoteric gems. I would definitely pick this book as a first introduction, but also for those like me who have been using & reading about them for years. I found a lot of things that I didn't know. I got it here:

saying hello

just posting a quick hello. New here and to LJ in general.
this is a community I hope to be active in, as well as an interest in runes I also am part of Regia Angelorum so take it both from the spiritual and the historical angles.

'nother Newbie

Okay, I thought it was pretty cool when I found this community. I recently started checking out runes and I'm teaching myself to write the Elder Futhark and Medieval Runic Alphabets. I also wish to learn the language of old Norse to go with the alphabet, but that comes later. Anyway, when I came back to livejournal, I thought, I wonder if I'm the only one that likes runology... but I see I'm not. So I did a search by interests and found the commmunity, and I joined immediately. Okay, not much else to say, but hello to all the other members!

Newbie to the Group!

Hail all!

I'm an Asatruar practicing in upstate new york (but i'm a 'joisey' girl at heart *grins*) I'm also a tattoo artist working with a predominatly pagan tattoo shop in Rochester NY... I have been a pagan for most of my life and have been an Asatruar for quite some time now... I have been vigorously studing my runes and i have joined this list so that I may be able to compare my studies with others. Like minds should have an outlet to share knowledge that they wish to share.

Icons galore

Runes and Oghams! From the community recons

Much thanks to verdant_rhythm for posting in celtic_oghams.

Haven't heard much of anyone here lately. How are all of you? How did you celebrate the Summer Solstice?

odd question here

My sister-in-law is 6 months pregnant. She's been having some complications. She's already having contractions. And these aren't "phantom" contractions. These are the real things. She's not dialated, and isn't on bed-rest. What Runes could I use to make sure my nephew is incubated for three more months? And so there are no more complications that come up in later months?

A bindrune question

Hi everyone, I'm new here, have been working with the Elder Futhark runes for about 8 years on a personal basis.  Onto my question:

I've been through a year of 'hell'.  I have been doing some work to try and improve things now, and some of that has involved using runes.  In a recent meditation I saw 2 runes before me form together into a bindrune.  The runes were Isa and Jera.  Jera is a rune I am very drawn to, Isa not so much.  That was a few months ago, and it still sticks in my mind, the idea that this bindrune is strongly attached to me, and I'd like to remove its influence really.

Does anyone have any insights and ideas?

Key in Hand


(no subject)

Because I'm a tree reader (like handwriting analysis but with tree drawings) I decided to start reading runes the same way I read trees.  I'm still testing out this method and if anyone would like their Rune Tree read, I'm happy to do it in return for honest and open feedback.  Both negative and positive comments are welcomed!  The drawing below gives you a rough idea of how a Rune Tree cast is done.  I don't use the paper when I do it, I just drew it to show how the reading works.  I tumble the stones around in their pouch while I consider the person then cast  the runes at the center of the cross below.  Well, the center of the cross is the center of the reading in my mind when I do an actual cast.  I flatten them a bit with my palm if they haven't spread out.  When I do a reading, I cast the stones on whatever surface is available and draw imaginary lines through the center of the pile.  In my mind I visualize the tree trunk and the tree top.  The runes, depending on how they fall, may represent roots or branches in my mind.  My runes are actual stones, so they really lend themselves to casting this way.  I read only the runes that are face up according to where they've fallen on the "tree."

I'm pretty new at rune casting and ditched the books and most traditional meanings in favor of my own interpretations.

Is there anyone else out there frustrated when they google for Runes and get a bunch of site for gamers? Rather annoying, I must say....
