Runic astrologer Randi Bjærum uses the ancient Viking practice to forecast your love, money, career, style and health every Sunday
Divination in runes is an ancient art that can be traced back to the Norse God Odin. Old scriptures show that the Vikings then continued this tradition - they even used used rune symbols in jewellery, clothing and weapons to boost their energy.
When we're born, we all get our own rune stone (find yours here). This birth rune indicates the abilities, talents and resources that you bring into your life.
But as the universe is constantly changing, daily, weekly or monthly runic astrology can tell you how events, actions and things affect your life. It can also reveal what energies, events and changes are occurring, and how you can best act on them. A runic horoscope is a guide to your spiritual journey and a guide on how to live life to the fullest.

Isa (28th November – 13th December)
There is romance in the air and the opportunities to gain new creative hobbies. But it's up to you to take the first step. It's fine to be selfish sometimes, and now is the time. If something is not meant for you, it won't happen. Have trust in the process and what your feelings and thoughts are telling you. The answer could lie in something you were pondering last week.
Jera (13th December – 28th December)
Now the activity in your surroundings increases and you are drawn into a whirlwind of social festivities. Find the balance between tasks you have to do and the engagements you have been invited to.

Eihwaz (28th December – 13th January)
In close relationships, you should now speak up for yourself and be determined. You have a lot on your mind right now, and you should let the closest ones to you hear your honest thoughts.

Algiz (28th January – 13th February)
Do you want to bring up something in a close relationship or with a friend? It's better to do it sooner rather than later. The next few days are great for open communication. If you're looking to deepen an existing relationship, the time to do it is now. Be brave and if the result is not what you were hoping for, trust that what is meant to be will happen.
Sowilo (13th February – 27th February)
Your senses were sharpened last week, and this week you feel like you are on top of your game. Think what you want to achieve and start working towards it. The week is great for acting on your dreams and for starting new projects with others. But take one thing at a time. If you take on too much, it can turn out negatively. Take care of the most difficult tasks first.
Teiwaz (27th February – 14th March)
Your inner motivation is growing this week - make sure to get the most out of it. Your long-term goals seem easier to approach now. Make the first move.

Trust your inner thoughts.
Ehwaz (30th March – 14th April)
This week is all about you. You often worry about others and are always there to lend a helping hand. Now it's time to be a little bit selfish and devote your time on self-reflection and looking after yourself. Do you feel like you have changed recently? Or perhaps there is something you would like to change? Now is the time to act on it.
Mannaz (14th April – 29th April)
You are in the last few weeks before your birthday, and you feel the need to retreat a little and sum up the past year. That's completely fine and a normal thing to feel when one approaches their birthday. Think about what you want from this year. Don't feel bad if you have not yet achieved what you had planned for. Stay confident and don't give up - you will achieve your goals. The universe is looking after you.
Laguz (29th April – 14th May)
A new opportunity opened up for you last week. Consider carefully whether it's something you want to do or just something that others want from you. It's OK to say no and do what's best for you. Your birthday will be in a few weeks, and the time leading up to that is perfect for some self-reflection. Think about the past year and what's missing from your life right now.
Ingwaz (14th May – 29th May)
This week you may find yourself with a dilemma. It can be connected to a group or a organisation you belong to. Your own needs versus those of others can create an inner conflict for you. Listen to others, but remember to make a decision based on your own wants and needs. Go for what is most important to you.
Othala (29th May – 14th June)
Your need for love and affection is increasing. Perhaps there is someone special in your life who does not know how you feel about them. Be brave and let them know.

Enjoy the change they bring with them.
Dagaz (14th June – 29th June)
Do you feel like lately your ideas and opinions have been questioned? While it's always good to listen to what others say, remember that they may not always be right. If you're looking to apply for a new job, the second half of the week is great for investigating your options. The universe indicates that you will not be facing major obstacles in achieving the goals you have set for yourself. Have courage and keep at it.
