Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day Communication and Connection ..... There are Major magickal energies for Fair Deals.
One form of 'communication' can be using Runes.......
One of the most effective is to place all the Runes in a bag, focus on your question and mix them with your fingers until they feel 'right'. Then draw out four Runes. As you draw the first say, "This is seed from which the thing grew." This is about the root cause of your issue. Draw the second and say, "This is the tree which grew from the seed." Here are the effects of that root. For the third say, "This is my branch upon the tree." This is your part in the issue, or action you may need to take. For the last,
say, "This is the fruit, born of the branch." This will tell you what the results may be. Interpret the Runes incorporating the aspect of the reading to which they refer and their action upon one another.
When using Runes in magick, they are read from right to left, or from bottom to top. A Runic spell
usually consists of three characters and rarely more than five. You are using the symbolism of the Runes, rather than spelling out a word or words. The spell should always be created in a natural medium, like wood, stone, or parchment. You can even write them in the sand and let the sea take them if that is appropriate.
Runes can also be used for meditation. Select three Runes at random and create a setting and story from their meanings.
