Rune stones aren′t really the oracle that you′d think about consulting when it comes to matters of the heart. They′re often very blunt—even cold—in their messages, and many of the meanings reflect the harshness of the Nordic environment. However, using rune stones for guidance in love can bring to you the cold reality of the situation, and fairly quickly, too. Be sure you really want to know the answer, though, because the rune readings tend to be concise and too the point, without much wiggle room for guesswork!
Why should you use rune stones when it comes to romance?
Runes are fantastic tools, and available as a set of stones (which most people prefer) or a set of cards. The symbols on them are Germanic in origin, and they′re shrouded in mystery. No one really knows who started using them or when they originated—and of course, that just adds to their enigmatic appeal when used as a method of divination!
There are many different kinds of rune stones. Probably the most popular is a set of 24 stones referred to as the Elder Futhark. Every symbol means something different. The significance of each rune is profound on its own. More complicated spreads—sometimes called layouts—can be used for a more involved reading.
