The 13 Witches Runes
The Witches Runes are different from the Elder Futhark Runes in that the Witches Runes are not an alphabet. The Witches Runes are instead a series of symbols that can be used in divination. There are different version of the Witches Runes, one uses 8 symbols, another uses 10 symbols and the one discussed here uses 13 symbols. Cast the Witches Runes the same way your would the Runes.
Many runes originated at first as part of a written language, though they could be used for other uses. This includes the Futhark and Ogham runes. In more – relatively – recent years, they have been used more exclusively in the art of divination. And, with runes, it is very easy to be able to create your own sets. One can use wood tiles, clay, or write on stone. If you are exceptionally crafty, you could even try making them out of metal.
Once you have your runes, I would recommend dedicating or consecrating them. You do not have to do it, of course, but I find that it helps tune the runes to your energy and they will work better for you. If you plan to use them in rituals, you should probably use the same ritual you use to consecrate your ritual tools.
Once the Runes have been consecrated, you can cast the Witches runes on a cloth, or on the table and read the meaning of the runes that are facing upwards only. If the eye is amongst the runes look at where the eye is looking. If there is a rune in front of the eye than that is the rune you must pay extra attention to.
You can also read the Witches runes by picking on rune at a time while you ask the runes a question.
Concentrating on your question, softly cast the runes. Read each rune in relation to your question. The runes closest to you are the most relevant – the furthest away are less. Any runes that land face down so you cannot read them should be discarded as not relevant. Runes that fall very close together have a combined meaning, even if they do not immediately seem compatible.
