How They Are Used
Extract a single Rune
In the morning, to get an idea of what to expect from the day, ask the Runes: “What will happen today? "Then extract a rune from the bag and read the wish.
Extract Three Runes
To get a yes or no answer to a specific question, extract 3 runes and read them in sequence.
If all the runes are positive we have a very favorable response, if all three are reversed the answer to our question is negative, if we have two positive out of three the answer is still positive. The third rune, the negative one, however, indicates the difficulties and what must be done in order to have maximum success.
The three extracted Runes can also be read in another way; the first gives a real picture of the situation, the second tells us what to do and how our attitude should be and the third tells us what will happen.
Estraete cinque rune
The first Rune talks about the past and tells us what caused the current situation.
The second Rune indicates the present, and the eventual problem if it exists.
The third Rune tells us the final result. Within three months, what is revealed by the other four Runes will happen
The fourth Rune indicates the help you can expect to receive (from others, from yourself).
The fifth tells us which aspect of the problem must be accepted and cannot be changed.
Extract seven runes
With seven runes you can see the events that happened in the past and what will happen in the future. The future is nothing more than the fruit of our previous actions. Action always corresponds to a reaction.
They should be read like this:
The first and second indicate a question
The third and fourth fourth are the factors of the past which are the cause
The fifth and sixth sixth are warning runes, those that help us to modify things or actions on which we must intervene.
The seventh Rune then gives us the result.
Based on what the Runes tell us, we know how we should act.
