|Runes are the ancient alphabet of the Norse. They are one of the ways Wiccans practice the art of divination. Runes are most often carved into stones, but other materials such as bones, wood or shells have also been used. There are 24 runes, but some include a blank rune, the Rune of Odin. They are used in way similar to tarot cards. The markings on the runes can differ, depending upon what era and what area they are from, the Norse being the most widely used.
