Here are also the runes and the meanings for the system Macha uses http://www.mysticwicks.com/attachme...achmentid=33172 (http://www.mysticwicks.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=33172)
If you cannot read this link you can copy the attatchement into word and make it bigger that way.

And if you have any questions hopefully Macha can answer them :D

EDIT MACHA sent me this and I am adding it here.

raidho - translates as "ride"; this is the rune for travelling, spiritually or physically
gebo - translates as "gift", but meaning an exchange (because all norse gifts warranted one in return) and balance.
wunjo - joy
hagalaz - "hail" - challenges; death and rebirth.
jera - this would be the wheel of the year, as well as harvest. It's also the "karma" rune; what goes around comes around kind of thing.
perthro - "dice cup" - chance, a gamble, female sexuality
tiwaz - victory, justice.
berkano - motherhood, nurturing, female fertility
Ingwaz - literally the god Ing/Freyr - male sexuality, fertility
Othala - home, homestead, matters of the family and home

Excerpt from RUNES
By Bran Iolair
(c) 2001- 2004


"Once you are absolutely comfortable and familiar with your runes, then you can do simple layouts for yourself and when you feel the time is right, you could progress to doing readings for others.

However, there are some guidelines I encourage you to remember when using your runes.

First; when you do a reading for someone you are taking on a very big responsibility, as a result it is very important to be professional when doing readings. Also you should make sure the person you are doing the reading for understands the information they get from a reading is just advice, nothing more or less, and it is us up to the querent if they want to follow the advice or not.

Second; whether you are doing reading for yourself or for someone else, make sure the place you are doing the reading is free from distraction. This is so that you and the person you are doing the reading for can focus on the reading, also make sure that the question that is asked is very specific.

Third; like any divination tool it is strongly advised that you donít use your runes when you are intoxicated, or while using any type of drugs (prescribed or otherwise). This is due to the fact that it could affect your interpretation of your reading. Likewise, do not do a reading for someone who is intoxicated or using drugs.

Now with that said, lets take a look at the type of spread and layouts you can use with your runes. (Spreads or layouts are the patterns in which the runes are placed to be interpretated.

There are many spreads and layouts to choose from, so here is some of the ones that I use.


ODINĒS RUNE:

Draw one rune for this spread. The purpose of this spread is to give an overview of a situation and is good to use when you need a quick answer.

THREE RUNE SPREAD:

Draw three runes from right to left (Or if you feel more comfortable left to right), as you put them face down. Then you can start the reading by turning over rune number one, which is

OVERVIEW.

(3) ACTION (2) CHALLENGE (1) OVERVIEW

OR

Another version of this spread is laid out like this.


(1) PAST (2) PRESENT (3) FUTURE

In this version you start your reading from (1) PAST.

and yet another version...



(1) (2) (3)

RUNE 1 - PROBLEM OR ISSUE.

RUNE 2 - the COURSE OF ACTION you should take.

RUNE 3 OUTCOME (if you follow the advice of the second rune).
-------

5 Rune Spread you can do like this

XX(4)XX
(1) (2) (3)
XX(5)XX

Please note due to some mess up reason this spread is not looking right the 4 should be above the 2 and the 5 below the 2.

2) PRESENT The current problem, situation or issue.

1) PAST Something from your past that caused this situation.

4) HELP This is the help (from a friend, relative, stranger or yourself) that you can expect.

5) OBSTACLES The aspects of the situation that cannot be changed and must be accepted.

3) RESULT The outcome of the spread in consideration of all the runes in the spread.

And one more thing;Wolf I believe it was posted a pick of a Rune Cloth with designs on it will we be using that?Or do we just use whatever?

The rest are posted in Bran's original post - the one's you have quoted are just the meanings which I felt were more appropriate than what bran posted :)

Anglo-Saxon "Wigleras" - a diviner.
Anglo-Saxon "Wiglung" - divination.

I dont know what Bran's planning on divination methods; I'll let her answer that one :)

Kern you cannot open the attatchement left click you mouse on the diagram to select it all, then paste it into word? Hmm well it was ok it was just a suggestion.

As for the Rune cloth I am still trying to get up examples of rune clothes up, but re-read http://www.mysticwicks.com/showthread.php?t=69632&page=15&pp=10&highlight=rune+cloth I am sure the posts there will answer your questions.


The rest are posted in Bran's original post - the one's you have quoted are just the meanings which I felt were more appropriate than what bran posted :) Ok lets not forget that we are talking about two sets of runes here that not only are different in the type of runes , but also thier meanings. I am not going to debate each meaning with you all because like I said before you have to rely on your intution to figure out the meaning to you. If you want the exoteric, and esoteric meanings then you can go ahead and look into that, I did wind up posting a link for that kind of stuff up above in teh previous post. However for the purpose of this part of the class my list is a starting point and YOU to get familiar with the Runes. The rest is up to you.

Ok everyone, we now have a set of runes, that are cleansed and ready to use so what is the next step in learning how to use runes? Well it is to get familiar with them so we can start the divination lesson of this class.

I hope you have something that can be used as a rune journal because it will be needed for this portion of the class. First of all as you can see in the attachment I include the name and divination meanings of the runes, but that does not mean that is the end of it. As we know one symbol may mean one thing to one person, and mean something totally to another person. The goal with this list is to develop your own meanings to the runes. Listening to your inner voice rather then having to refer to a book when you do a reading.

So with that being said I would like you to please do the following:

1) copy the attachment into your rune journal- when I say copy I mean write it not just print it out. This is because writing it out helps you to start getting familiar with the runes and reinforces what your are reading.

2) For each Rune I want you to spend about 5 minutes meditating and see what connection you make with it and what meaning you feel each rune means to you. Do not forget to record your meanings in your journal. Once you have completed them all please post your responses.


Okay,I just baked myself a new set of clay runes today.Are these the signs that I should paint on them?I made this set purposily for this class,and if this is the runes we'll be using,I want to make sure I have them painted on correctly. :bouncysmi

NOTE to Students : there are a couple of more spreads added to the first page of this thread, and I will be adding Thors hammer, and the World tree spread later today.

Also starting Monday we will be creating our own spreads and also interpreating readings which I will explain more later today.

Hey Teach! Already read the 3 chapters. Great overview on the spreads and rune meanings, however I have some questions on the cloth.

Somewhere a little back I read it had to be white, however I didnt see any special reason for that. If its really an optional color Id go for white or red anyways :P , however I wanted to clear this little doubt first.

SilverClaw
November 26th, 2004, 03:02 PM
First of all glad to see that you are caught up with the readings:D

As for the colour of the Rune Cloth it is in my opinion that is is truly up to you. Personally normally I do not use a rune cloth, but due to circumstances now I am using a red cloth and that is simply just becuase that is what I have at this time to use.

hope that answers your question.

My runes are a dark grey hematite with silver runes painted on them, I've had them for several years. I originally made a black rune cloth with the phases of the moon painted around the edges, but it was really too dark for the dark runes to show well. I've started using a white cloth because I had a nice white napkin that's a good size.

What are we doing next? Now that Thanksgiving and all the birthdays for our house are over for awhile, I'm ready to get back into the runes class. :)

Ok the rest of the spreads are up and since it is a full moon tonight/early this morning i feel enrgetic and I am going to go ahead and post the next part of the lesson instead of on Sunday. so here we go.


FIRST: I want you to become comfortable with the spreads so we are going to have some practice with the three rune spread right now and we will do another one in a few days....

I am drawing the runes now for the 3 rune spread.

3 rune Spread - General reading - What guidance do I need at this time?

November 27th, 2004, 01:18 PM
Poop, I hadnít ever done the Overview layout, but when the runes fell out they were telling me the past/present/future. Canít argue with the runes, eh?



Past : Tiwaz = initiation (merkstave)


In the past, about 5 years ago I began using the runes.


Present : Fehu = spiritual riches / dynamic power (merkstave)

In the present, I havenít done any readings for over a month, my power feels low.



Future : Isa = a time to stand still



In the future, I need to continue learning and focusing my energy on my work situation. This time will pass and I will go back to doing readings for myself and others.


Does anyone else read the runes reversed (merkstave) as well as upright?

SilverClaw
November 27th, 2004, 01:28 PM
I use to but not anymore do you want me to add the reversed meanings in the beginning of the lesson?

Lunacie
November 27th, 2004, 01:42 PM
You don't have to post reversed meanings. I don't have them written in my little silver cheat book, I just figure that a reversed rune means the energies have waned or may be blocked, depending on the layout and the other runes next to it.

SilverClaw
November 27th, 2004, 07:33 PM
hmmm never thought of it that way before..

SilverClaw
November 28th, 2004, 01:58 AM
they were telling me the past/present/future

That is the way I usually do a 3 Rune spread to..

November 28th, 2004, 03:05 AM
1)Past / Present /Future

t1- Past - I have compromised and sacrificed a lot of things for my loved ones, but it is now time to look after me and have some balance in my life.

j2- Present - It is time to complete certain things from my past and to move onto other things both on a spiritual level, and physical level

o 3 -Future3--once I have completed bringing certain things to a close and let it go it will be a time to refocus my energies and what I want to accomplish in my life

Hey Teach and everybody! Just finished making my rune set. Luckily its a full moon tonight so I left them charging outside.

I suck at this... any comments would be appreciated.

I chose Celtic Cross Spread.

1- What is the root of your lack of clarity?
Mannaz- What I am going through right now is needed for my growth.

2- How and where should you direct your enrgies?
Hagalaz-I need to take my challenges head on.

3- What is blocking your progress?
Othalo- Family history (childhood) is blocking my progress. I have old issues to work through.

4- What will help you overcome this blockage?
Ewhaz- I need to trust in myself to overcome this blockage.

5- What are you still lacking?
Wunjo- Joy is still lacking in my life. *sniff* (But it is getting better.)

6- what will be the outcome of this experience?
Dagaz- I will come into (am coming into) the light whereas I have been hiding in the dark for several years.

Actually, that was pretty a fairly accurate assessment of what I have been going through for the last several years.

Congrats on finishing your runes.

The x's are just place holders so you can see where each rune number goes. Otherwise they weren't staying in the right place, and you couldn't tell where to set each rune. Forget the x's and just look at the numbers. Does that help?

Ok, the assignment is to take your rune set and the meanings Bran posted in this thread, and do a three-rune reading. Decide what you want to know more about, whether it's a specific question or some situation you're dealing with. Jumble your runes together in a bag or pouch, then reach in and draw out three runes, one at a time. Look up the meanings and write down what you think they are telling you about your question or situation.



Ok the rest of the spreads are up and since it is a full moon tonight/early this morning i feel enrgetic and I am going to go ahead and post the next part of the lesson instead of on Sunday. so here we go.

If so only if you want to , I think I am going to change that considering there is only about 5 of you still doing the lessons regularly. And that it is just something I suggest you do in your own time.

To answer your other question, if you want to just post your reading that is fine to.

Odin's Rune's
Uruz - strength - of will, elaing , path decisons , time of great energy and health/healing.
That is what i'm to do now.

3 Rune Spread
3 outcome- wunjo - balance
2 course of action - radiho make a decision
1 issue - jera - harvest
ok here's what i think this means -- I think its say to me to make use of what i've learned, making a descison to do what i've been thiking on for so long, and wunjo is telling me there will be spiritual reward for my actions.

5 Rune Spread
2 present- isa -standstil/seeking clarity
1 past - nauthiz -need/recognizing path and course to do
4 help- ehwaz - progress can be achieved
5 obstacles - gebo - gifts of balance and protection are needed.
3 result - tiwaz - initioation to be blessed through self sacrifice by healing and giving to all others.

hope i've done all that right. Runes are difficult.

SilverClaw
December 8th, 2004, 05:35 PM
2) PRESENT- oit is time to regain focus and see where I need to continue and what other things I need to let go of to continue both spiritually and non spiritually

1) PAST t- trying to begin new things but having problems completing the new thing


4) HELP- f I need to look within myself

5) OBSTACLES -rit is long past due that these projects have been completed

3) RESULT-TI need to be in better control of these goals I am trying to achieve.

Hey Wolfscout great :jamsessio now how did you fidn doing these readings?

um, I think i've got a knack for it.
I do have to do some cross checking on what each individual rune means still, cause i don't have it down in my head. But once i look over it and see what the qustion means per the layout , it's not so difficult. often find it quite surprising. The same as i do with my pendulum readings and chart books. And other methods that i've not seen mentioned here at MW anywhere smiles :)

1- What is the root of your lack of clarity? Gebo

2- How and where should you direct your enrgies? Raidho

3- What is blocking your progress? Nauthiz

4- What will help you overcome this blockage? Ingwaz

5- What are you still lacking? Laguz

6- what will be the outcome of this experience? Mannaz


I am not certain what the first rune means. I think it has to do with my emotional balance.

However, the rest, I think, goes like this:

I have been stuck. I need to direct my energies in forward movement. I have bi-polar disorder, which means I lack emotional control sometimes. As I grow and as I confine my emotions, I will have more positive relationships, and fulfill my destiny.

In this lesson we looked at divination, and with it we also looked at some simple spreads you can use with your runes. In order to get better at using Runes for divination you need get familiar with the meanings of the Runes, and you can do this by meditating. Once you feel confident enough with the meanings then you can start doing rune spreads.

Also as mentioned in the lesson if you are interested in learning both the Exoteric and Esoteric meanings of the runes I encourage you to check out this site it will http://www.tarahill.com/runes/runemean.html (http://www.tarahill.com/runes/runemean.html)
This is also a good site to learn the menaings of the runes.
That is all for this lesson.

To those of you who have not posted your practice spreads please do so then continue on with the next assignment and lesson.
