Runes are an ancient system of divination from the Norse. These symbols started as an alphabet and were then used for insight, prediction, and divination. This deck of flash cards was developed to use as a study tool for learning rune casting.
There are twenty-five runes in a set, usually made of stone, clay, or wood. This deck has fifty flash cards, half of the cards feature the rune symbol on the front and description on the back. The other twenty-five cards have the rune name on the card face and the symbol on the back for quizzing. The second part of the deck can also be used for Rune readings.
Each description card is double-sided with the glyph on the card face and the information on the back. The card descriptions for the Runes include name, letter in the alphabet, pronunciation, theme, keywords, uses for magickal working, key phrases and reversed phrases where applicable.
In this deck there are the traditional twenty-four Runes plus the modern addition of the Rune “Wyrd”. Several informational cards come with the deck that include topics on how to use the deck, History and Origins of the Runes, Understanding the Runes, Rune Casting, and Layouts.
The total number of cards in the Runes deck is 55. This deck features oversize cards, large font size, double-sided flashcards, printed on quality card stock, packaged in lift off top heavy duty box.
