Runes divination is an ancient practice. Modern Pagans continue to follow this practice today. Runes can be compared to reading tarot cards. However, it is key to note that rune casting does not predict the future or tell your fortune. Instead, it only provides guidance and works with your subconscious to solve problems. Even though their meanings can be pretty obscure at times, modern readers who cast runes find that they can incorporate them to ask specific questions.
