The word ‘rune’ means mystery or secret and is a form of divination or oracle reading system that is used to help gain insight into situations or questions. Odin was responsible for the runes becoming available to mankind; he discovered the runic alphabet as part of his trial, in which he hung from Yggdrasil, the World Tree, for nine days.
Much like reading the Tarot, runic divination is not "telling the future." Instead, rune casting should be seen as a tool for guidance, working with the subconscious and focusing on the questions that might be underlying in your mind. Some people believe that the selections made within the runes drawn are not really random at all, but choices made by your subconscious mind. Others believe that they are answers provided by the divine to confirm what we already know in our hearts.
The Elder Futhark, which is the old Germanic runic alphabet, contains two dozen symbols. The first six spell out the word "Futhark," from which this alphabet derives its name.
