As my new book “Vitki Musings: Runes Seidr and Esoteric Asatru “ was until today the number one bestseller on Amazon in the category Divination with Runes I thought I’d do a post on the subject. By the way check out my book on Amazon today and see what the hubbub is about!
Using Runes for Divination is the primary use of them for me personally. I do readings for others and myself. It’s not too difficult once you have the meanings under your belt. Of course new nuances in meaning come with experience. Learning the meanings is important but only your own experience in reading can give you true and accurate results. Let yourself be open to that process. The results will be many.
Doing a reading for me is not a big event. It’s pretty simple. I light some incense and candles to put me in the proper mood. Then I invoke the gods for their assistance. I used to invoke Odin exclusively but then he told me to invoke the Norns. Since that message I have used the Norns. It has brought me great success.
Then I do the casting. The meanings are pretty clear if I remain open. I sometimes do a seidr session to get results for trickier meanings. That only happens for really difficult readings.
Then I thank the gods for their help. And that’s about it.
Giving the results to clients is sometimes difficult though. If the results are not that positive you have to approach your giving of results with care. Being diplomatic is part of the job of being a Vitki.
So in my opinion keeping things simple is the key. You can’t afford to make things complicated if it doesn’t need to be.
Doing Divination is a vital aspect of Vitki work. I get a lot of results from the act of reading the runes for others. Try it and you’ll see!
