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.

That's very true, and I of course agree from what little i know about runes. I made a set myself but never felt they resonated with me. I know you should know the historical tradition of where the symbols come from and the meanings, but outside of that is all of that other information necessary for just using them as divination? I could see if you were to delve into runes outside of that context, you would need to.

I think it's great that everyone leans towards the scholarly in this forum, i love it. I just feel for me I don't need to apply that too in depth with divination. For me, divination is more about me and what source or tool I am using. So, outside of basic knowledge of the divination method and the necessary knowledge you must gain(symbology,meaning,methods,etc) i don't utilize it much.

thank you for your input Star!

Bright Blessings.
