PostSubject: Runes   Sat Jul 21, 2007 12:55 am

Many people are famillar with runes and runic symbols but most people are not aware of the fact that there are acutally three different types of runes, and while the most common form of rune, that is the symbolic runes, uusally etched in stone, are often wrongly associated with Druids of Celtic beleif, but this is false, for in truth the Celts had no written langauge they were an oral culture, rather these runes come to us from the Norse, the vickings.

The most common runes, the norse runes, consist of specicic symbols which are typicaly carved upon some natural nurface, such as I mentioend before stone, they can also be carved into clay, or upon bark and so forth, though today, they do make them out of many synthatic matterails as well. These runes are read in smillair ways to Tarot, they are laid out in a pattern and then the symbols upon each rune are interpeted and read as well as the way in whch each of the symbols relate to each other baised upon how they fall on the spread.
