Rune Spreads

-Original Author Unknown

The Field
The field on which you cast the Runes represents the world in which you live. To the Right represents the past. To the Left, the future. When reading horizontally (right-to-left), the central area represents the present. On the vertical axis, closest to you (Near) represents the issue. Furthest from you (Far) represents the outcome. The central area when read in this direction represents your need, your actions and the challenges which may effect them. Take the Runes from the box and place them unseen in the bag. Swirl the runes around in the bag gently with your writing hand, and let a Rune fall naturally into your fingers. Feel it and sense whether it is the right one to draw. Draw the runes one at a time and place them on the field. Never turn the runes - place them exactly as they come to hand on the field. Whether they are upright or reversed (i.e. upside down or right way up), and whether they appear converse or obverse (i.e. face down or face up) may make a difference to the meaning. When placing the Runes on the field always work from Right to Left, then from Near to Far. If placing a three Rune cast you would lay Right, Centre, then Left. If placing a five Rune cast you would lay Right, Centre, Left, Near, Far. And if placing a six Rune cast you would lay Right, Near Centre, Left, Near, Far Centre, Far.

Odin's Rune
For an overview of an entire situation, state the issue aloud and draw a single Rune. The Rune drawn will encompass the entire matter from past to future, actions and outcome. This is particularly useful with a very critical matter for which you seek instant guidance.As to the matter of how to remove the obstacle for a satisfactory outcome - a supplementary cast of Odin's Rune may provide the answer.

The Three Rune Cast
With the issue stated aloud, draw three runes and place them Right, Centre and Left. The first Rune (Right) speaks of the situation as it now is. The second (Centre) suggests the course of action called for. And the third Rune (Left) foretells the outcome which will result from that action. Alternatively, if you are seeking to remove an obstacle from your life or your progress, you may read the Runes:
* Right - myself at present
* Centre - the challenge or obstacle
* Left - the best possible outcome if I am able to overcome the obstacle

The Runic Cross
This is a six Rune cast which will give you an in-depth analysis of an issue. It is similar to the classic Tarot layout, but who knows which came first? My intuition tells me the Runes follow the form of the Celtic Cross which was a common motif in Northern Europe even in pre-Christian times. Tarot is reputed to originate in ancient Egypt, but there is no evidence to link this to Bronze Age Europe. Most probably the two similar methods developed independently. State the issue and draw six Runes in the manner stated above. Cast them Right, Near Centre, Left, Near, Far Centre, Far.
The Right Rune represents the past, the situation which has brought this issue to exist. The Near Centre Rune represents you now and the Left is what lies ahead of you.
The Near Rune (known as the Foundation) gives the underlying basis of the issue, often subconscious or unrecognised reasons why the position has arisen.
The Far Centre (known as the Challenge) represents the nature of the obstacles or blockages which you wish to overcome.
The Far Rune (known as the Outcome) foretells the best outcome you can anticipate if overcoming the challenge.

Quest For Truth
This cast will give the most detailed analysis of personal destiny. It must be undertaken by an experienced Runemaster or Runemistress on behalf of the questioner (The Querent). This cast requires the selection of nine Runes: one by the Runemaster, the other eight by the Querent. The Runemaster/Runemistress should spend some time in conversation and company with the Querent to get a feel for the person and the subject. Then the Runemaster or Runemistress will select a single Rune in the usual way which will represent the Querent. The Querent will then be passed the Runebag and select eight more Runes, one by one and lay them in a three-by-three square to the pattern shown in the diagram opposite.
The bottom right Rune (drawn by the Runemaster/mistress) representing the Querent is known as the significator.
The second Rune reveals the inner self and cast middle row right.
The third Rune is cast top row right and deals with the goals or ideals of the Querent.
The fourth Rune is cast top row middle to represent the past.
The fifth Rune is cast at the centre of the square and tells of family matters.
The sixth Rune is cast bottom row middle and deals with the Querent's health.
The seventh Rune is cast bottom row left and speaks of religious matters.
The eighth Rune is cast middle row left and represents the Querent's friends.
The final Rune is cast top row left and reveals the final outcome of the matter.

The Three Lifetimes Cast
This cast is dedicated to reincarnation, and should not be practised lightly. It gives a three level insight into your journey through this life, your previous existence, and any future incarnation you may expect. If practising this cast, one should be aware that not everyone will experience reincarnation, and it is perhaps better not to know. I have found this to give startling results often invoking long-forgotten memories and giving the querent some discomfiture - even nightmares - for weeks afterwards. Speak the issue and draw five Runes in the same manner as before. Cast them Right, Centre, Left, Near, Far.
Right represents your birth and childhood and will point out your talents, attributes and shortcomings.
Centre represents your present life and will indicate actions you must take to improve your present life and thus deserve another.
Left shows what your future in this life holds for you if you follow the advice given.
Near gives an indication of your past life, it's character and your behaviour.
And finally, Far gives an indication of:
* Whether you will reincarnate and
* If so, what kind of person you will be

The Thor's Hammer Spread
Place the runes unseen in the runebag. Swirl the runes around in the bag gently with your writing hand, and let a Rune fall naturally into your fingers. Feel it and sense whether it is the right one to draw. Draw the runes one at a time and place them on the field in the pattern shown on the left. Never turn the runes - place them exactly as they come to hand on the field. Whether they are upright or reversed (i.e. upside down or right way up), and whether they appear converse or obverse (i.e. face down or face up) may make a difference to the meaning.
Interpret the runes according to their position as follows:
1 How others see me
2 My fears
3 What I seek
4 My best approach
5 My goal
6 Obstacles to overcome
7 My destiny
8 The way to my real self
9 My real self
