Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what ancient runes are and what their importance is? Have you asked yourself what their significance is in ancient rituals and lore? Was there ever a time you asked yourself just what those runic symbols mean? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Runes are like the English alphabet, and these were used to write numerous Germanic languages. They were used extensively until the adoption and use of the Latin alphabet. Now, runes are used for specific purposes, especially to write magical charms for healing and protection. Some also use runes to curse others.

Throughout this book, you will:

  • Discover runes, their history, and definitions
  • Master the art of writing runes
  • Learn about some tools of the trade
  • Understand runes used in divination
  • Discover sample rune rituals
  • Learn the foundations of rune magic

By the end of the book, you will learn that each rune has a special meaning, and these defy simple interpretations. So click the "Buy" button, and take a journey down the path of runic magic and mysticism!

It's ok gives a good explanation of the runes only thing I don't like is some of the symbols on the cover don't match the symbol on the inside although they mean the same thing there taken from the old and some symbols from the new

Great beginner's guide

This is a great beginner's guide and will cover all of the basic beliefs, and much of the mythos. There are also a handful of spells that are suitable for the novice to practice with. If you are interested in learning to cast magic, then this book will help you get started.

Well done

Since all we have is the time right now, my partner wanted to get into Runes so I got this book for him to read. He told me it was easy to read and understand, all of the descriptions made sense, and it was great that they went over the history and pronunciation as well.

Great book for research

I had thought that it would have rune by rune references but it does not. A great history and research book and will stay in my collection- but not for daily readings and quick reference as I had hoped.

Very well written

I have always been fascinated by Wicca and religions that are based on older pagan beliefs. I have found that many of them address areas of spirituality that other religions do not.
