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 trace 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 tells about 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. They 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.
