Well Met All. I was skimming through the recent posts,etc and came across one that had to do with runes. While I agree if you are going to participate in a practice you should know what you are doing as well as be well informed on the various aspects of a practice. But how do you all feel about applying that to divination? I saw when discussing runes as divination compared to in a scholarly inquiry, that in both cases it was recommended to read the scholarly information (via books in this case) as well.

I think part of that is just the nature of this forum; we lean to the scholarly side of things.  Wink

In the case of runes I think it's pertinent.  They have pretty set meanings, as I understand it; it's not like some methods of divination where what the symbols say to you personally is as important as what symbols come up.  (I could be wrong here, not being anything resembling an expert, and I'm sure if I am several people will jump in to correct me.  Cheesy )  Those meanings don't out of nowhere...  they come from a historical tradition.  So I don't think it's a bad idea to make sure that someone who's wanting to get into them knows how to figure out what's good information and what's bad.
