From the Back Cover The author of best-selling Futhark: A Handbook of Rune
Magic and Runelore takes you deeper into the heart of the runecaster’s art,
specifically, runic divination. The word rune means “mystery”, and casting the
runes enables the runecaster to penetrate the mystery of the relationship
between the gods and humans, and between internal and external environments.
Strongly loyal to the ancient traditions, Edred Thorsson traces the evolution
of runecasting to the present in order to restore runework to its historical,
spiritual, and cosmological significance. Thorsson shows you: — how to make
your own runes; — how to load the rune with numinous power; — how to prepare
the optimum setting for a rune reading; — how to prepare yourself
psychologically and spiritually for casting the runes.The book is complete —
including general rune meanings, divinatory tables, the positive and negative
aspects of each rune, its linguistic component and phonetic value. Thorsson
provides runic layouts and sample readings, as well as alternative ways to
cast lots and answer yes/no questions. In each case, he is explicit, precise,
and generous — he trusts the runecaster’s art and the integrity of the
runecaster who is new to the craft. This volume is sure to restore runecasting
to its position as a sacred art. Read more About the Author Edred Thorsson is
