The Beginner’s Guide to Runes – Josh Simonds


★★★ ½

By studying the lore and mythology of the ancient Norse people, we not only learn of the origin of the runes, but we also discover the gods and creatures that brought them to us…

Ancient runes have been a popular source of divination and connection to Norse mythology for movies and books.

This little guide delves into the origins of Runes and the lore surrounding it.

It talks a little bit about the various versions of the runic alphabet and how we were able to learn about what the runes meant.

From there the book describes how runes apply to our modern era.

They are keys to help us increase our own inner landscapes, as well as tools to help us increase our own intuition.

And it talks about how runic divination works as well as magic.

In this chapter, you will discover the basics of runic magic and how to use the runes to bring about change in your world.

The end of the book focuses on the exact meanings of the runes and their connections with the gods.

All in all this was a rather informative and quick book.

It was fun to learn about the origins and the connections between the runes to the gods and goddesses.

I wish there were more illustrations because this felt a bit text-heavy. It got a little dry, but overall it felt like a good guide to learn about runes.
