Representing the twenty-four Norse gods and goddesses from the Vanir and Aesir pantheons, the runes provide a way to establish direct contact with the divine shapers of fate. Based on the work of Austrian mystic and runologist Guido von List and anthropologist Marija Gimbutas as well as the oldest rune artifacts to survive from pre-Christian Europe, this book reveals the long history of runes from their appearances in Paleolithic cave paintings through their rechristening in Medieval times to their modern resurgence as a popular tool of divination. It uncovers the original names and divinatory meanings of each rune by exploring the myths, personality traits, astrological periods, identifying colors, and gemstones of the rune’s corresponding god or goddess. It also illustrates and explains five ancient rune-casting spreads used by Norse adepts for divination as well as character analysis. By renewing their link with the divine, Gods of the Runes shows how working with the runes can be a genuine mystical experience, enabling a personal connection with the gods and a rediscovery of their perennial truths.

The book in your hands is a thing of many parts. It is an introduction to the Runes, to the Norse pantheon of Gods and Goddesses, and to the spiritual disciplines and ancient practices of Northern Europe. It is a set of thoughts, and stream of consciousness exercises, from a Priest who has been practicing a long time. I hope you find it entertaining, interesting and useful in your own spiritual practices. Some of the interpretations here are well known, others less so. A few, to the best of my knowledge, have never appeared anywhere else and are my own thoughts.This book also serves as an introduction to a belief system called by many names. You can call it Germanic or Norse Paganism, Asatru, Heathenry, Kindred belief, or my personal preference, the Northern Mysteries. Is this book "Traditional"? Some will answer yes, and others will answer no, most emphatically.The author has spent the better part of two decades in a Rune based Wiccan Tradition, read sagas, written poetry to the Northern Gods and Goddesses, and has served as Priest in many Northern based rituals. This book contains more than 100 study references to books, periodicals, and artifacts, in addition to 200 days of Rune a day readings. It can serve as an introduction for new students, an ongoing study guide for those more advanced, and still be helpful to those who have studied for years.

Seven o'clock, on a Monday morning, five hundred years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar again... Maddy Smith was born with a rusty-coloured runemark on her hand - a symbol of the old gods and definitely cause for suspicion. For magic is dangerous. Or so everyone thinks. But Maddy enjoys working magic. Even if it is just to control some pesky goblins. And every time her friend, One-Eye - a good-for-nowt Outlander - comes by, he teaches her more and more about the gods and the runes. Now he wants Maddy to open Red Horse Hill and descend into World Below to retrieve a relic of the old gods. Otherwise it is likely to be the End of Everything. Again . . . An epic romp into the heart of the old Norse tales: wild, dangerous, richly inventive and superbly imaginative.

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods—the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All- Father, and the rune master. Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god. Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.
