Reading the Runes for yourself
No matter how you choose to consult the runes, it is important to bear in mind that their meaning may not be immediately obvious to you. One cannot help but be subjective about one’s own life, so you are bound to have strong preconceptions about what the runes will reveal, even before the first one is cast.
You may be presented with the answer to a pressing question, only to find that you don’t understand it. Having said that, it is possible to read the runes for yourself. One way of getting around the difficulties involved is to keep a rune notebook and write down the names, meanings and positions of the runes for future reference. You will find that it is easier to interpret their often subtle message once you have taken a step back, so to speak, and can look at them again with a cool head.
