The word “rune” means mystery and secret. It is an oracle reading system used to help understand situations and answer questions. Runes can be made from a variety of materials, but are usually made from stone or wood and have a rune alphabet symbol over the pieces.
There are several types of runic alphabets, one of them is the ancient Germanic alphabet, known as Elder Futhark. Runes originate from these letters which were used for magical purposes, writing and divination by the Germanic and Norse tribes of Northern Europe, Scandinavia and Great Britain.
How do runes work?
The rune game is not about guessing. Kelida Marques, holistic therapist and psychoanalyst, explains that the idea is that the person asks a question or thinks about a specific topic. And when the runes are played, she picks up the pieces that will give her the answer she needs. This choice is not random, but guided by the subconscious in relation to the question being considered.
What questions can be asked for the runes?
According to Kélida Marques, some people believe they can ask more direct questions, others believe that the question should be about a specific topic. “Whatever the method, it’s important that you stay focused on the question while the runes are being played,” she advises.
What are the types of runes?
Runes can be made from wood, stone, crystal, bone or even metal. “In the beginning, a simple set will suffice. As you practice and develop a passion for runes, you will be able to choose or even build your own game”, highlights the therapist.

the viking runes
They constitute one of the oldest known forms of the Scandinavian alphabet. Its origin dates back to the Bronze Age. Nordic peoples used these magic symbols to work powerful energies of prediction, healing and protection. They were consulted by magicians, priests, sages, kings, princes and chiefs of tribes to make decisions.
The stones were also used in monuments, talismans, magic formulas and spells of homage and gratitude for the guidance received. After centuries of prohibition and persecution, today this knowledge comes to us with all its ancient magic and ancient wisdom to guide us.
