The way I learned to read runes uses bright-stave and murk-stave meanings. These are similar to upright and reversed meanings in tarot. I cast the runes instead of laying them so I get runes facing in all directions, flipped over, and even on top of each other. I read the meanings as a mixture of bright-stave and murk-stave depending on the degree of rotation and also the way one rune might face other runes. If several runes were rotated about the same degree, I would probably look at that as a sign of changes coming. If several runes were rotated in a variety of different degree, I would look at the possibility of confusion or a scattering feeling as a part of the reading. I do think you are right about using your intuition. What works for you will be the best for you.
