Although many of us first encountered runes in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, this sacred alphabet is by no means a fabrication for books or movies. Similar to Hebrew letters in the sense that each symbol contains a meaning that transcends its original function as a letter, the runes are practical, flexible, and effective symbols with a variety of uses. From the introduction: Effective use of the runes requires both the old wisdom and the new. The student must not only consciously study the meanings ascribed to the runes by earlier scholars, but must internalize them. Today, the best-known application of rune lore is divination: chips or stones marked with the runes are drawn, cast, or laid out in patterns like tarot cards. In Taking Up the Runes, Paxson delves into the ancient historical meaning of each rune and explains their contemporary uses and meanings. We discover that the real power of runes comes from inside ourselves when we find the wisdom and power within each symbol and internalize them. Taking Up the Runes is the ultimate workbook for using the runes on a psychic, spiritual, and magical level. Learn how to make your own rune set and how to use the runes in guided meditations and song.

A fundamental difference between using runes and other methods of divination is that the runes not only have particular meanings but also specific magical powers. Runes have stronger historical roots in the world of magic and so can be used both for indicating the future (divination) and also for encouraging a change of outcome (magic). Despite the fact that rune knowledge has only survived to the present day by the thinnest of threads, its inherent practicality and flexibility has gone a long way to encouraging new and valid research and exploration. This book is an introduction to the mysterious history and use of Runes. With clear text and illustrations you can learn the meanings of runes and their significance in a reading.

Virtually all cultures have used divination to seek advice or help from unseen forces, though the methods have differed. Karcher (Elements of the I Ching, Element, 1995) gives a colorful historical overview of the practices from many lands and times, including runes, tarot, dowsing, numerology, tea leaves, and more obscure rituals involving bones and spiders. A solid bibliography points readers to monographs on particular topics ; the index allows users to locate information specific to a country, symbol, or rite ; and a brief glossary is also included. Practitioners of the divination arts will need more depth, but libraries without a treatment of this subject (e.g., Divining the Future, Facts on File, 1995) will find this a readable and comprehensive choice.
