Witches Runes

[Horse] [Yew] According to Silver RavenWolf, the creator of the Witches Runes, an individual who uses runes for magick is called a "Rune-Witan" (rune-wise-one). This deck is especially suitable for such runic practitioners. It combines the wisdom and lore of the ancient Germanic runes with Wicca and Magick. Each card is devoted to one rune. The rune sign is at the top with both the tradtional and English name at the bottom. The picture shows the mythic themes and symbols associated with the rune. There is an extra blank card as well. The artist is Nigel Jackson, who also created the Nigel Jackson Tarot. The set comes with the book Rune Mysteries by Silver RavenWolf. She describes the lore and meaning of each card and gives the tree, color, element and other related correspondences. Two special chapters are devoted to the art of rune magick and runic mysteries. The Witches Runes was originally published as the Rune Oracle.
