    My First Set

    I recently bought my first set! It's a book/rune set from the bookstore. A bit lame perhaps, but I see those things as a good "beginner's set".  Can't wait to learn how to use them!

    I Used To Be Able To...

    I first began studying the Runes about 15 yrs ago, when I was in high school. I even used to write letters and journals in the runic alphabet. I never had my own set- I had no money to buy them nor the materials to really make my own- so I never really practiced divination with...

    Runes In Popular Culture
