Rune Spreads

Now that you have your runes, how are you going to use them? You can use the same layouts as you use in Tarot. Here are a few examples.

Ask the Norns

In Norse mythology the Norns were three female deities who spun thread and wove fabric to determine the fates of humans and gods alike. Often one of them negated the gifts of the other two or turned them into a curse. This reading provides yes-no answers to simple questions. Be sure your question is simple. Then choose the reading and evaluate the three runes to determine the answer. If you get WYRD as one of your runes, it is not yet time to judge the question or there are too many variables to receive a clear answer.
