A Handbook of Rune Magic
by Edred Thorsson
"The runes embody the greatest and the smallest secrets of nature, and they are themselves the keys to those secrets - for they are indeed the secrets themselves."
This complete book of rune instruction includes rune history and lore, its basis in metaphysical thought and mysticism, complete definitions of the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark, and the etymology, phonetic value and interpretation of each rune. The reader is shown how to perform chants and rituals using runic energy, how to sign and send runes, and given suggestions for runic meditation. The author's presentation of this powerful system is lucid and profound, and provides a valuable tool for spiritual transformation and self-development.
This is a great book for the serious rune worker. It covers magickal meanings and applications for each of the runes. It also has many chapters about ritual and magick for runic studies. Highly recommended. - 13 Moons
