The word rune stands for whisper, secret or mystery. Each one translates into a phrase or word that signifies the mind and forces of nature. Every single run has a relationship to a Norse God depicted by a story. Psychic runes are basically an oracle which dispenses advice to those who ask for it.
The story of the origination of psychic runes goes something like this. Odin, who is the Norse High God of the Aesir, was impaled on his own spear. He hung from Yggdrasil, the world tree, for nine days and nights to gain the knowledge needed to understand the runes. When the runes appeared, he picked them up and gained the knowledge which gave him power. Later, he passed this knowledge to Freya, the Vanir goddess. In return, she taught him the magic of Seidr. Mankind was given the knowledge of runes by Heimdall, the guardian of the Rainbow Bridge
In order to become proficient as a psychic rune caster, you must cultivate your knowledge of the culture, mythology and history of ancient Scandinavia and Europe – for more information you can read more here. Rune lore is intimately tied to these. This knowledge points you in the right direction but the depth to which you explore it is up to you.
Psychic rune casting is not fortune telling since you cannot see the future. They just give you a way of analyzing the path you are on and what the outcome might be. Remember, the future is not set in stone. Everything you do changes the future in some way. If you do not like where you are headed, you always have the chance to change the outcome by your actions and decisions.
The best way to seek advice from psychic runes is to explain your situation in detail. Once you do that, ask a specific question. Sometimes the results are not very clear. They may hint at the answers but the details have to be fathomed by you.
The simplest way to read psychic runes is to clear your mind of everything except for the question you want to ask. Concentrate on it. When your entire concentration is focused on the question and you feel that you are ready, pick one rune. This will help you gather the information you need to answer the question you have in your mind. Should you feel that you need more information, pick up three runes instead of just one. The first will give you information about the circumstances surrounding your question. The second will indicate the route you must follow. The third will give you the outcome should you follow this route. Remember, you choose the final path to take. You can control your own future. Take your time and choose wisely.
Time honored opinion is that this is the time of year when Druids and other pagan/wiccan/ neopagans celebrate the return of spring. The night and day share equal time as well as the influences of the sun/moon. This is one of those in-between times especially sacred to Druids. When something is between two places or states of being it is the most fortuitous time to consider the balance in your life and shift energies, to create transformation.
In ancient Ireland there are sacred places more directly associated with Alban Eiler - Stonehenge, Cairn T and Knowth to name a couple. They are dated to 5000 to 6000 years old, and both align to permit the sun to shine directly on a stone on the morning of the equinoxes. You will notice the eight spiked wheels on the stone inside Cairn T , if you take time to view that monument in County Meath, Ireland.
There is also unbelievably half a world away in Sedona, AZ, USA, a similar stone that also marks the arrival of spring. Keep in mind the completely different cultures of the Hopi and Pre-Celtic Ireland, and look at the similarities between the two cultures stonework. The equinox is also marked on monuments at The Maiden tower in Baku, Azerbaijan, the Mayan pyramid El Kukucan (Chichen Itza) and even at the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, which dates back an additional 4000-6000 years (!) according to researchers Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval.
It is even celebrated in Judaic-Christian traditions as Easter, and in Mesopotamia, women were obliged to serve as priestess in fertility rites at the temple of Ishtar/Inanna at least once before they could marry. Regardless of which culture you are looking at, they all seemed to recognize this as a special time of year, probably a time to begin planting.
Modern Druids, Wiccan, and other pagan traditions revere this time of year for pretty much the same reason, a time to plant seeds of growth for the spirit or to influence new projects. In Wicca we celebrate Eostre/ Ostara the Goddess of the Morning and Evening Star, fertility, and Spring, to whom hares and birds were sacred. Altars may be covered in pastels or green cloth (growth), and a blessing of new projects or even actual seeds are appropriate. Whatever your personal traditions are, take time to celebrate in some way. Let’s face it, the entire ancient world couldn't have had it all wrong, could they?
