How to Ask the Rune Stones a Question
To use your rune stones, you simply cast them: Ask your question in your mind, toss your runes onto a cloth of your choosing from either East to West or towards the Sun, and pay attention to the runes that land face-up. Research the meaning or message behind any of the runes that have landed face-up to find the answers to your question. The question you ask the runes is important; however, after you spend time with your runes, you’ll be able to use them without having to focus on your question. Your rune stones will begin to pick up on your energy the more you work with them. Sooner than later, you’ll be able to simply reach for your set and perform a quick reading for fast and easy guidance. When you do feel like asking questions, it’s important to be specific about your inquiry. Vague questions – such as “Does he love me?” – will typically result in vague answers. Similar to the Tarot, asking open-ended questions will always yield better, more meaningful results from a rune casting. Yes or no questions should be avoided to get more explanatory answers. Act like your rune set is a close friend, someone with whom you wish to share a deep conversation full of respect and understanding.
Single Stone Question
While you can use each and every stone in a set for a reading, you may choose a single stone reading when you’re short on time or need quick guidance.
Try asking a question, reaching into your bag of runes, and picking the one that seems to be giving off the most energy. Whatever your hand is attracted to, grab that stone. Interpret the meaning of the stone to answer your question. For less specific advice, you can also use this technique for daily guidance.
Ask yourself what energy you need to focus on for the day or what lessons you need to learn. Then, using the same technique, feel for the stone that seems to be calling your name and draw it out. Interpret that stone and try to take that wisdom or message with you throughout the day.
A three-stone reading is more involved and takes a bit longer to interpret, but it can also give you a more insightful answer to your questions.
You can again ask your stones any question you want to know the answer to, as long as it is specific. Now, randomly gather the first three stones in your bag of runes that you’re drawn to. Since the runic alphabet moves backwards, the first stone will go on the right-hand side, the second stone in the middle, and the third stone will be on the far left.
Rune #1: Represents the basics or the core of the situation.
Rune #2: Symbolizes the challenges associated with this situation.
Rune #3: Represents the course of action to take or the final outcome.
For this rune reading, the goal is to select one rune at a time until you have five before you.
The first rune is placed in the middle, and the remaining four are placed to create across the first.
The second rune should go to the left or the West of the first stone.
The third stone is placed above, or North, of the center stone.
The fourth stone lies to the right, or the East, of the center stone,
and the fifth stone is placed at the bottom of the cross.
The three horizontal stones (2, 1, and 5) represent past, present, and future.
The southern stone, rune 4, shows a challenge or a problem in the situation.
And finally, rune 3 represents the help you may receive to combat those challenges.
