Apr 23, Omdog rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I don’t think the cover is attached at all anymore, and the thickness has doubled what with all the post-its and scraps of note paper stuck between the pages.
Marks of a good and well loved book. This was one of the first texts I’d bought having anything to do with magick or divination.
A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magic
I was currious, and had flipped through a couple friend’s copies of Blume’s book which did absolutely nothing for me other than translate the runes to english characters.
Peschel has a straight-forward approach that makes the instructional portions of the text seem almost conversational. What I liked best about it was that she doesn’t “Preach” anything, and she doesn’t sound pompus when relating stories of her own or others’s experiences. Also, she doesn’t cover concepts too detailed or complicated for anyone just beginning a study in divination or magical tool making. One of the most important things I remember getting from this book was the sense that this was just a tool, a jumping off point.
The most useful portions of the book I found were the instructions on how to create your own set of runes, and both the interpretations in divination as well as in magical use. The tables in the back are open to interpretation, and I rarely use them. It is so helpful, not only does it give great meanings to the runes but it also says how they are used it magic and the layouts and such are just perfect! Love this book so much! Jan 20, Rose Heartfilia rated it liked it Shelves: This book was really interesting if you read the small script.
I am interested in Runes and I like to write in my agenda in Runes, mainly so noisy people can’t read it. However I’m not interested in Divination. I’m studying way too much things for that. Besides I don’t really believe in that kind of stuff. Okay maybe if someone else did it for me but now.
With that I’m too much of a Hermione Granger. The idea of the way of writing them an all the meanings behind it for magick purposes is on the This book was really interesting if you read the small script. The idea of the way of writing them an all the meanings behind it for magick purposes is on the other side interesting.
I bought this book in Dublin in the old Museum, when I was there two years ago with my best friend. I still want to go back, it is a lovely city. I’ve been there in the Winter, I want to see it in the summer. Just as it reads, its a practical guide to the Runes. Sep 03, Toria rated it did not like it. It’s someone’s personal perspective on each of the runes and also some other rambling. It’s not thorough, not historical, and overall empty. Each rune gets only 2 or three short pages, including giant picture, and the “practical” instructions are sad.
Could inspire your interpretations if you’re looking for that, it’s just not what I was looking for. A charming little resource for my project! Definitely interested in making a set of runes as well now. Jun 10, Layla A rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have a lot of dog ears on this one. Jan 08, Alyssa rated it liked it. Great for novices in the field of runes. Excellent information about making and designing runes, and a basic but helpful for beginning guide for how to use the runes.
The description of the actual ruins is a bit lacking, but there is enough for a general understanding of what the ruins mean.
Peschel admits that if the reader wishes for a better understanding of the ruins and their history then another material may be better suited for that purposes, whereas this text is more of a practical guide Great for novices in the field of runes.

Jul 10, Michelle rated it it was amazing. This book has very detailed rune layouts, rune meanings, and the ways to use runes for magical purposes. I personally use it to help me do rune readings.
The runes are my first divination tool and this book has helped a lot in deciphering the meanings and help me understand the runes without even referencing the book anymore. It is not a book for everyone as each individual has his or her own interpretation of the runes and may prefer another reference.
All in all I like this book and it is in m This book has very detailed rune layouts, rune meanings, and the ways to use runes for magical purposes. All in all I like this book and it is in my library as my number 1 reference book for my runes. Jan 22, Rachel rated it really liked it. This is a good introductory book to rune symbolism and interpretation.
It’s sometimes a bit too new-agey, but it at least won’t overwhelm someone who is just beginning to explore the system. I pwschel reading the Icelandic and Anglo Saxon rune poems while reading the section about divinatory meanings. It will help to give a better idea of what the original users thought about the system they devised!
Mar 29, Brad rated it really liked it. I love this little book. It’s inexpensive in price but priceless in content! This is the most simplistic, yet complete and guiide to use volume on the Runes, for both divination and magick as the title would imply! There are many other volumes, some extremely thick and verbose, that cover the same amount or less prctical than this book.
Everything you need is here, an easily accessible and digestible. Looking for a book on runes? Consider this little treasure. Feb 20, Raven Rose rated it really liked it.

Excellent introductory book to the Runes. Found it very helpful, though some of the Rune names were slightly altered for example, Berkana was Beorc in the book and that tripped me up for a moment. Otherwise very good resource book. But I think there is a little too much of the authors beliefs and theories on handling and creating runes is in praxtical book. If you want something that is more historical or simply a telling of what the runes mean you should go elsewhere.
Jan 03, Nicole rated it liked it. Written well but I felt no connection to the runes as the author seems to downplay the magic to each with simple explanations. Peschek, really would’ve liked more of the lore behind each rune and why she believes these runes have these specific meanings.
A pretty solid little book. There’s a wide range epschel activities in this book.
There are some interesting historical tidbits. The author writes with authority. This book is definitely going into the bibliography in my Runes for Beginners book. Apr 26, Kendra Griffith rated it it was amazing.
My friend bought this for me as a birthday gift and she did a great job! This is very informative and easy to follow. It is a very handy book to have yo when learning about runes. Oct 04, Jaime rated it it was ok Shelves: She cites her main influences as Blum and Conway, so other than a use as the most basic guide for familiarizing oneself with urnes names and shapes, this is not a good sourcebook.
