    Runes are fantastic, but make sure you get a good book by a Scandinavian author. Blum is lightweight. I have owned a set for over twenty years, you can make your own. I use them not only in divination and spell work. The legend is Odin sacrificed himself so man may have the knowledge to keep him alive. He hung himself from the Yggdrasil tree and the runes came into being. They are one of the most accurate of divination elements I have ever use.

    HMMM. I do not use books but let us see,

    Freyja Aswynn, Principles of Runes,

    Nigel Pennick The Complete Illustrated Guide to the Runes

    Blum is okay for beginners but is sort of lightweight, then you could move on from there.

    This is what books I would recomend; Edred Thorsson (or Flowers) Futhark A Handbook of Rune Magic, Runecasters Handbook and Northan Magic. Very good books I would start with Futharc if I was you.

    I'm just curious...

    What about the theory that, instead of F-U-Th-A-R-C...the correct sequence is U-Th-A-R-C , with Ur being likened to the mother nurturer of life, boundless energy and all possibilities and "Fe" coming last as fulfillment.

    When I started with runes, many years ago...the first book I read had them in this order. Only when I started reading other works did I realize that this was not the "accepted" order...but it was to late, it made sense to me and still does. I still use this order and, for me at least, the results are indisputable. It works.

    Whats even worse is that I use a blank rune before "Ur" as my first rune ...but that stems more from my belief in the void and concept of emptiness...emptiness before possibility, before there can be something, there must be nothing. I realize that this is non-traditional...but hey, its fits my paradigm just peachy.

    Anyone else use this method, (or any other "non traditional ways"), or am I the only aberration?

    like I said...just curious.

    I haven't, but I do not think one has to go by the norm, whatever works for you is what is important. The runes tap into the unconscious and the emptiness anyway so it should not matter.

    I have not heard of the system you are refering but I if its a working you should continue with that. I don't use the blank rune, its only a modern concept as far as I know and when I was learning the runes from Thorsson's books he stays away from the idea.

    I would like some more info though on the idea of the UTHARC if you could give me the author name or some net info that would be helpful?

    The blank rune has no historical basis, but the runestone itself can be useful if you manage to loose one of the other tiles.

    Very good point but I made my own runes so I only made 24 I have kept the branch I made it from though so if I do loose one I can make a new.
