Norse Runes are an ancient alphabet used in Germanic countries. Today, they are used in magic and divination by many Pagans and Wiccans. Although their meanings can sometimes be a bit obscure, most people who work with runes find that the best way to incorporate them into divination is to ask a specific question based upon your current situation. Although you don’t have to be of Norse ancestry to use the runes, you’ll have a far better understanding of the symbols and their meanings if you have some knowledge of the mythology and history of the Germanic peoples; this way you can interpret the runes in the context in which they were meant to be read.
This Plugin allows you to use runes as a functioning part of your website.
Here are some of the current features:
- Show all the Runes on a given page.
- Show a specific rune with meaning on a given page.

- Current Spreads Available
- Odin’s Rune (One Rune Layout)
- Past, Present and Future (Three Rune) Layout
- Expanded Celtic Cross Spread (Twelve Rune Layout)

Features for Future Releases:
- Ability for people to create accounts and track readings over time.
- Ability to do different castings with Meanings and Interpretations. Some examples:
- Two Rune Layout
- Four Directions Layout
- Five Rune Cross Layout
- Midgard Serpent Layout
- Bifröst Layout
- Grid of Nine Layout
