It also forecasts changes in position, due to happen within twenty-eight days, if the stone is in the leading position. It often denotes a visit abroad. The true meaning of the rune can be arrived at by studying the rune that is nearest to it in a cast. If the nearest stone is favourable, the coming changes will be favourable.

would indicate unhappiness'that would change within twentyeight days to something better.
flow to Cast the Rune Stones
Take the eight stones in your right hand; shake them up like dice, while thinking of the question you wish to ask, then cast the Runes away from you. Only the Runes that have the s2mbols uppermost should be read. The ones that fall Jace downwards are out and have no meaning.
The Rune stone farthest away from you is the leading stone and the most important. The others decrease in importance as they fall nearer to you.
Only the stones that show a symbol have any meaning. If one falls on top of another and both show a sltmbol, those two stones carry the answer.
Keep your questions simple; if you ask one and cast and nosymbols show, this indicates that the time is not right. Do not cast again for seuen days.
Never cast the Runes for fun, or if you know the qnsuer; remember they are an ancientform oJ diuination and not a game.
When casting for yourself , )ou are the enquirer; when casting for another,let them throw the stonesbutyou read them.
To cast the Runes for someone not present, concentrate on their problem, then cast and read the stones as if you were the enquirer.
Don't try to complicate your readings by asking nebulous questions such as, 'Shall I be happy?'; but rather, 'If I do so and so, will it bring me happiness?' Remember, the Runes are as old as time, so do not expect that you will be able to find a 'long story' at first. Concentrate on simple questions to begin with, and you will soon find that they will tell you their own story in their own way.
Neanlend your Runes to another person, because if you do, they will neaer again tell a true slor7. Remember, they were ritualized for 1ou alone.
Finally, keep your Rune stones in a little velvet or suede bag, which can be embroidered with your magical name, in one of the magical alphabets, or a sigil which is pleasing or powerful to you.
Also another set of ten has been found also. I have PDF for these as well.
By creating a set of stones with symbols that are significant to you, you can make your own divinatory tool to use for guidance and inspiration. The instructions below are for a simple set using a group of thirteen stones. You can change any of them you like to make the set more readable for you, or you can add to or subtract any of the symbols you wish -- it's your set, so make it as personal as you like.
You'll need the following:
We're going to designate each stone as being representative of the following:
1. The Sun - power, energy and life
2. The Moon - inspiration, psychic ability and intuition
3. Saturn - longevity, protection, purification
4. Venus - love, fidelity, happiness
5. Mercury - intelligence, self-improvement, overcoming bad habits
6. Mars - courage, defensive magic, battle, conflict
7. Jupiter - money, justice, prosperity
8. Earth - security of home, family and friends
9. Air - Wishes, hopes, dreams and inspiration
10. Fire - Passion, willpower, outside influences
11. Water - Compassion, reconciliation, healing and cleansing
12. Spirit - Needs of the self, communication with the Divine
13. The Universe - our place in the grand scheme of things, on a cosmic level
Mark each stone with a symbol that indicates to you what the stone will represent. You can use astrological symbols for the planetary stones, and other symbols to signify the four elements.
Place the stones within the cloth and tie it shut, forming a bag. To interpret messages from the stones, the simplest way is to draw three stones at random. Place them in front of you, and see what messages they send. Like reading Tarot cards, and other forms of divination, much of lithomancy is intuitive, rather than specific. Use the stones as a meditation tool, and focus on them as a guide. As you become more familiar with your stones, and their meanings, you'll find yourself better able to interpret their messages.
