The brilliancy of a masterful teacher... 6 Nov. 2009
By JBowlin - Published on
Format: Misc. Verified Purchase
This is perhaps my favorite of any divination tool Ted Andrews has produced. It contains 40 "animal runes" in a faux silk bag and accompanying book. Of all his work that has been produced in China, this has the best quality I've seen to date.

The messages are clear and precise. To this point, they have been right on the money. His book descriptions are not merely copy and paste from his Animal Speak book, which is a great accompaniment to these runes and adds depth to the included book.

Ted states in the beginning of the accompanying book that these are not traditional runes, so if anyone wants to argue that they are not, that is all well and good. They serve the purpose they were intended for. I've never used runes of any kind, so I can't make a judgment one way or the other if they are truly "runes." I'm just happy to use them for what I'm seeking.

On October 24, 2009 Ted left this world. I had an opportunity to see him teach and meet with him when he was back home here in Dayton a couple of years ago. He was a great teacher and had a zest for life that I have rarely encountered in my time here. He certainly was one of a kind and his legacy will live on through his work.

Superb rune-like system 16 Feb. 2012
By Neko-san - Published on
Format: Misc.
Animal-Speak Runes is an oracle system based on animal archetypes by Ted Andrews. Instead the classic Nordic Runes on wooden tiles, these show inked figures of animals with names and key words. However, this departure from the standard oracle card systems makes these runes very fascinating.

The runes in this oracle are small (0.75"x1.25") with rounded corners. I'm actually surprised of their good quality! Each wooden tile contains an inked animal figure set in the middle with its name at the bottom and a key word at the top. This arrangement reminds me of oracle and tarot cards. Of course, unlike cards, these can be easily held in your hands and hidden inside your fist.

This system includes 40 wooden tiles, divided into 34 animals and 6 specialty tiles.
The six specialty tiles refer to actions that animals undertake: camouflage, hibernation, hunting, mating, metamorphosis, and migration. The 34 animals include 12 mammals (bear, coyote, deer, dolphin, fox, horse, jaguar, manatee, rabbit, rat, skunk, and wolf), 10 birds (blue jay, crane, eagle, hawk, hummingbird, owl, raven, swan, vulture, and woodpecker), 6 reptiles (chameleon, crocodile, frog, gecko, snake, and turtle), and 6 bugs (bee, butterfly, cicada, dragonfly, praying mantis, and spider).

This kit include a red bag and a pocket sized guidebook. The bag is imitation silk, according to a very generous description in the guidebook. It has two pull-strings to close it shut, and strong stitching. It does not have an inner liner, but is still adequate to carry and mix your animals tiles.

The guidebook is an essential addition to this kit. Although the tiles are well labeled, I welcome the information in this pocket book.

This is how the guidebook is organized:
Chapter 1 Animal-Speak Runes
Chapter 2 Quick Start
Chapter 3 Specialty Runes
Chapter 4 Animal Runes
Chapter 5 Special Rune Readings

Chapter 1 explains the concept of animals as messengers from nature, while chapter 2 shows a quick way to start using the runes. Chapter 3 and 4 fleshes out each rune standard and reverse meaning. Finally, chapter 5 shows a few layouts for divination and meditation: Daily Oracle (1 rune layout), Three Rune Prophecy, The Yearly Forecast (13 runes layout), and Your Spiritual Journey (10 runes layout).

I own three gorgeous animal themed Tarots, and two other rune/tile based oracles besides this one. However, if I were considering buying just one for among these six for divination and meditation, this one would be in a tie with my best animal themed Tarot.

This is an easy-to-pick-up oracle system for anyone, but I highly recommend this oracle for practitioners of shamanism. And no collector of oracle system should let this one pass.

Animal speak runes 21 Dec. 2011
By Rainwalker - Published on
Format: Misc. Verified Purchase
These are fun, accurate and easy to understand. If you like animals and divination these are for you! I am so glad to have these. Ted Andrews was a very informative and intuitive individual and anything by him is worth reading and using. If you enjoy runes in a softer way then buy these. There is only one issue with these runes...eventually the picture side starts to wear off...I have had them for 8 months and the pictures are wearing thin..

My Favorite Runes 9 Mar. 2013

Format: Misc. Verified Purchase
These are awesome Animal Runes. I cleared them first with sage and studied each rune individually. They have a great feel to them now and really right on in giving me a daily reading! Love these!!!

Travel well, excellent divination system 27 Nov. 2013
By vitalichi - Published on
Format: Misc.
Ted Andrews Animal-Speak Runes are a nice departure from tarot/totem divination systems, and I think it's a good pairing. He is certainly one of the top authors in the totem animal field, and has spent plenty of time learning about the actual animal as well as the spiritual aspects of the animal. Some totem books I've read you can definitely tell the author didn't spend much time with animals outside, but that's not the case here. The book is a great little reference and easy to carry around, and makes a great gift, especially for the new-age male in your life. There isn't much in that field marketed for them, and although this is a unisex divination system, it seems well-suited for male energy and rugged journeys. They certainly travel better in less-civilized places than a paper deck does and it's quite easy to use them outside. Something to keep in mind if you like to do outdoor rituals.
