There are 24 runes in the Elder Futhark which is what you see above. Each rune is not only a letter in an old Germanic alphabet, but bears a primary definition of “secret” and must be thought of as a holy concept that must be expressed in concealment. These were ancient symbols used in writing on stones, metal, and wood. The symbols had a religious or magical meaning for those who wrote them. Each rune should be viewed as having a highly complex nature that deals with different forces of nature and energy and from which it flows. The runes origins are Teutonic or Germanic in nature. Runes are used for magic and divination. Runes can be used magically in many ways. The most common way is to inscribe them into talismans or objects for a specific purpose. Some use them for divination or a psychic reading.
