Rune Study Group: The 3 Rune Cast


The three rune cast is most common, and historically known (Tacitus, Germania, 78 CE).

The three runes are laid out from left to right.


Position 1..................Position 2..................Position 3
Urdhr.........................Verdhandi........... ........Skuld
That which has.........That which is...........That which should be
Become
Past............................Present........... ...........Future
Beginning.....................Middle.............. ...........End
Body..............................Mind............ ..............Spirit
Problem.....................Obstacle.............. ..........Help
Option One.................The Issue.................Option Two
Self...........................Relationship....... ............Other


You can see from the table, that in addition to past-present-future layouts, other values can be substituted for each position, depending on the needs of the reading.

Here is the trick with Runes. Most folks memorize meanings and ascribe them to the three positions, (“This is your past, this is your future, etc.”)

Think of movement. It begins with three static Runes. You will read position one. Then position One and Two, as a pair, looking at the dynamic of the relationship. Repeat.

The reality of what you are looking at is not three separate things (past, present, future), but the flow in the tapestry of life.

Learn to read between the stones.

Experience will tell you how far in the future Skuld speaks for you. For me it is roughly four days. This will vary from person to person, both sitter and reader.
