How do you know when Runes are ready to work?

Practical tips for the beginners:

Understanding when the runes are ready to work with you is a crucial question, especially for those taking their first steps in rune work and practicing divination. Often, the runes may simply not communicate with a person, or may not do so at that particular moment. How can one navigate this and avoid mistakes?

Before starting it's possible to check if the runes themselves are operational at that moment. To do this, after you've prepared yourself for work through invocations to the gods, appeals to the gods, ( or the way that the BAD BITCH CLUB teaches you in the ADVANCED MANIFESTING level )  or other actions with which you initiate the divination process, ask the runes your first question, during which they should demonstrate whether there's contact with them at that moment or not.

Runes that indicate favorable work (in an upright position):

  • Perthro Indicates the runes themselves, magic, and readiness for work. In principle, this is the most auspicious rune to begin work with.
  • Algiz: Indicates a connection with the pantheon of gods and the potential for strong and high-quality work.
  • Ansuz (ᚨ): If you work through the gods and the pantheon, this rune speaks of clarity and understanding of the layout, that the information will be accessible. Ansuz can also indicate the need to pay attention to the depth of the answer, which may be understood at some time after the layout. Literally, Ansuz can denote "SPEECH," "CONVERSATION," "COMMUNICATION."
  • Ehwaz (ᛖ): Indicates spiritual connection with the runes, the possibility of interaction and good work, moving forward.
  • Kenaz (ᚲ): Fire of knowledge, obtaining necessary information in the process of divination.
  • Sowilo or Sol. May indicate a strong and favorable flow of energy necessary for work. Sowilo is a very strong rune in terms of energy, and working with it can be draining for a person. In terms of divination, it also indicates clarity in answers.

Runes indicating unfavorability for work at the moment:

  • Nauthiz (Nauđiz) (ᚾ): Indicates a difficult condition and difficult work. This is a rune of limitations and necessity. Divination with Nauthiz can be extremely difficult.
  • Ehwaz (ᛇ): Regarding this rune, practitioners cannot yet find agreement. It can show different aspects and images to different people. This depends on the practitioner's level and strength. I personally advise, if at the beginning of the work the runes give you Ehwaz, to end the work. Because Ehwaz is a death rune. Voluntary death, when it is better to end a certain process and do it by one's own will. Ehwaz can also indicate difficult work that may "hang," making it extremely difficult to get an answer.
  • Isa (ᛁ): Indicates that you are not sufficiently ready and attuned to the work at the moment. This is a rune of freezing and indicates that it is necessary to wait, to be better attuned to the divination process, perhaps to sort out feelings and emotions because when working with runes, calmness and inner peace are necessary. Isa does not indicate the impossibility of work but suggests a pause, a need to wait, to stop at the moment.
  • Hagalaz (ᚺ): This is a process of destruction. When this rune appears before work, it's better to end the process immediately. There's too great a risk of misunderstanding the runes, which can lead to incorrect interpretations of the layout itself.

Another practical piece of advice: when the runes refuse to work, you need to look at the reason why they don't want to interact at that moment. To do this, ask the question "for what reason is the work impossible now." Look at the answer. Here are some options from my own practice:

  • Uruz: Indicates that the problem may be in your personal strength. The runes draw life energy from the operator as payment. And if it's insufficient, they may refuse to work at that moment. If Uruz is also inverted, then the energy is significantly in deficit.
  • Thurisaz in the reasons may indicate your unstable condition. For good and quality work and divination, a harmonious mood is necessary.
  • Raido may indicate that you're doing something wrong, the wrong direction, or a series of questions you want to work with is prohibited for you. For example, every practitioner has a magical prohibition, taboo. This is a type of magic or direction that they're strictly forbidden to engage in. Literally, inverted Raido means "no way," "road closed."
  • Kenaz may indicate a lack of inspiration, which is also very important in working with runes. It may also indicate a lack of theoretical knowledge necessary for work.
  • Wunjo. State of sorrow or emotional instability. Inverted, it indicates a strong, destructive emotional background.
  • Nauthiz may indicate that something you're doing is wrong. It may even be that the place where you conduct the divination session is very unsuitable for work. Maybe something needs to be changed.
  • Perth, especially in an inverted position, will indicate that the runes themselves are closed right now.
  • Algiz, especially in an inverted position, indicates that the connection and divine channel are closed at the moment.
  • Teiwaz. Lack of spiritual power.
  • Berkano inverted. Exhaustion, also lack of the necessary energy and strength for work. No growth.
  • Ehwaz. At the moment, there's no connection with the runes.
  • Mannaz can come up when the operator spends a lot of energy on working with people. And both the runes and the person in this case can be deprived of power.
  • Laguz. No flow. No emotional mood and positive feelings.
  • Othala. May indicate that you're working outside the Tradition, outside the pantheon, which is highly undesirable. It may also indicate an unsuitable place for work.
