A comprehensive and practical guide to the ancient oracle based on the runic alphabet of the Norse

· Reveals the symbolism and divinatory significance of the 24 rune "staves"

· Provides clear instructions on how to craft your own rune stones

· Explains the role of runes in the Norse wisdom tradition and its influence on such works as Tolkien's Lord of the Rings

Nordic runes are a potent and profoundly transformative magic system that gives contemporary readers access to the ancient wisdom tradition of Northern European cultures. The runes have deep resonances within the pagan Norse world of gods and goddesses, giants, dwarves, warriors, and wizards, which have greatly influenced the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, among others. Norse tradition attributes the discovery of the runes to the "All-Father" Odin--a god of inspiration and secret wisdom and the mythical prototype for runecasters, who established the pattern for gaining his knowledge.

Nordic Runes addresses three major areas: Runelore, the history of this 2000-year-old Norse oracle; Runestaves, the meaning of the individual runes of the Elder Futhark alphabet and their powerful mythological, magical, and practical lessons for daily life; and Runecasting, a comprehensive guide to the oracular application of the ancient runes, including their crafting, divination, and self-development. As Nordic Runes shows, the runes do more than simply reflect the path of fate; they help develop and enhance intuition. By learning to cast and interpret the runes, the user becomes receptive to the energy currents in material reality and empowered in the arts of its transformation.

From the Back Cover:

DIVINATION / NORSE MYTHOLOGY

Nordic runes--the runes of the Elder Futhark--comprise a potent and profoundly transformative divination system that gives us access to the ancient wisdom tradition of Northern European cultures. These runes have deep resonances within the Northern pagan world of gods and goddesses, giants, dwarves, warriors, and wizards, which have greatly influenced the work of J. R. R. Tolkien, among others.

Nordic Runes addresses three major areas:

·  Runelore, the history and rich mythological tradition of this ancient oracle first discovered by the “All Father,” Odin.

·  Runestaves, which includes full explanations of the meanings of each of the 24 runes in the Elder Futhark, accompanying visualizations, and practical lessons for daily life.

·  Runecasting, a comprehensive guide to the oracular application of the ancient runes, including their crafting, their use in divination, and interpretations of sample castings.

As Nordic Runes shows, the runes do much more than simply reflect fate; they help develop and enhance intuition and open new paths of growth, self-discovery, and transformation.
