Runes for Beginners: Simple Divination and Interpretation - Alexandra Chauran

See this and all of my reviews on my blog Mystereity Reviews

This is a great resource for anyone who would like to learn more about the use of Runes in divination, whether you're just getting started or an experienced user.   The detailed and easy to understand information covers everything from the history and meanings of the runes to how to cast and create your own set of runes.

When I began this book, I already had a set of runes and some basic understanding.   While some of the rune names are different then what I learned (the book calls one rune Neid, I know it as Nauthiz) it was easy to understand and I liked the suggestions for how to remember the meaning of each rune.   I also learned a great many new casts to try out, and I look forward to exploring them.  I particularly enjoyed the chapter on creating bind runes, something I always wanted to try but never found any instruction on how to do it.

Overall, Runes for Beginners is an enjoyable and informative book, great for anyone interested in Runes or divination.

Thank you to Llewellyn and Netgalley for an advanced copy of this book in return for an honest review.
