Do the runes and seidr ever go together? Absolutely. In a couple of meaningful ways.
Runes and seidr go together to create powerful experiences. It’s like a double whammy of input . The best of both of the major disciplines of Vitki work come together in harmonious ways.
First there’s the Runic seidr combo. That’s where you do a rune casting and can’t make heads or tails out of it. A seidr session offers clarity in these cases. What you do is cast your runes. When an interpretation escapes you simply do a seidr session to make it understandable. Go into trance. Focus on the runes pulled. And soon interrelationships start to become apparent. That which was obscured becomes transparent. Meanings will dawn on you that you never expected.
The same works in reverse. Did a seidr session that was full of disconnected images that left you flabbergasted? Do a rune casting to get additional meaning. Runes are very to the point and down to earth. Rather unlike the ethereal seidr session. A rune reading will help ground you in the here and now. Making it easier to make heads or tails of a slippery seidr session. Runes can give answers where only questions occur.
These are but two examples of how these esoteric heavy hitters go together. Maybe you’ll find other ways to combine them!
