Publisher's summary

Everything you need to know to begin working with runes.

The enigmatic nature of the runes is undeniable. But what are runes, exactly?

In Runes for Beginners, best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain shines the light on these ancient symbols, showing you how to discover and utilize their unique magical energies. With both an eye toward tradition and a multicultural spirit, Lisa combines an appreciation for the Germanic roots of the runes with a more eclectic Neopagan approach.

Runes for Beginners is completely accessible to those with no experience in Northern European magical traditions, yet it doesn't ignore those traditions altogether. Here, you'll learn all you need to know to start working with runes, including:

  • The history of the runes and their role within the framework of the Germanic magical worldview
  • The origins of runic wisdom in Norse mythology
  • An overview of the Elder Futhark, the oldest-known runic alphabet and most widely used rune system in contemporary Neopaganism
  • Basic techniques of rune magic, including rune scripts, bind runes, and creating runic talismans
  • How to make your own runes
  • Instructions for traditional rune-casting as well as contemporary rune spreads
  • Tips for successful divination
  • The divinatory meanings and magical uses of each rune in the Elder Futhark
  • A suggested-reading list for further exploring the runes and the magical and spiritual traditions of the ancient Germanic peoples
  • Detailed tables of correspondence for a handy, condensed magical and divinatory guide

By the end of this guide, you will have a working knowledge of the runes that will enable you to use them with confidence in magic and divination. If you're ready to start exploring the runes for yourself, just scroll to the top of the page and hit the "Buy Now" button!
