5.0 out of 5 stars great deck, forget the book 8 Mar 2004
By ilweran
Format:Cards
The five stars are only for the cards, NOT the book. I love the art on this deck, it's some of the best I've seen on rune cards, & I find the cards easy to interpret.
The book on the other hand is typical of the author, whose books I generally dislike, & I agree with the criticism in previous reviews.
I'd recommend buying this set for the cards, & then using the money saved in buying from amazon to buy a decent & more accurate book on how to use runes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drivel 7 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Cards
As all things "Celtic" have been done to death, Ravenwolf has a stab at something Germanic (although, apparently everything is Norse, like most Americans, she can't tell the difference).
Each chapter starts with a small bit of rather unique (i.e. her interpretation) of Germanic cosmology which is then followed by standard New Age stuff on divination.
She mixes rune names from different Futharks, her interpretation of Germanic beliefs is purely Wiccan and not drawn from genuine lore.
This book is written for a typical Llewllyn audience - people who like to think they are tapping into ancient forms of esoterica but don't want to put the work in, they want it spoonfed to them. Ravenwolf is happy to do that - she's being paid for it - and comforts the "busy" reader who might not have much time to devote to study. "It's okay, I've done all the hard work, I'll share my wisdom with you" There are actually a lot better guides to the runes available for free on the internet IF you are willing to look for them.
Oh, and just one more thing. There is no solid evidence (one debateable mention in Tacitus) for the runes as a tool of divination. That hasn't stopped a continual flow of books on the subject, most of which are as bad as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRANSFORMATIONAL! 14 Nov 1999
By tarot1234@yahoo.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I am so, so infatuated with this set. I had attempted to read runes before, using a plain clay set, and had a great deal of trouble trying to acertain meanings from the lines alone. These beautiful cards work like the Tarot or Cartouche, unveiling the meanings through the symbolism and art to better understand the energies of each rune. The accompanying handbook is a gem, with background information on the Norse religion (including a great introduction to the Norse pantheon), information on each rune (symbolism, oracular meanings, and magickal workings), and some very good rituals, including one of the best circle-casting methods i've ever heard of. I highly reccomend this set to magickal people, or people just wanting to bring the power of the runes into their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars good info on magical uses of the runes as well as divination 28 Oct 1999
By a reader from Michigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I really enjoy the witches runes. The guidebook is packed full of information on divination, history and magical uses for the runes. Good meditations and rituals too. I also recommend reading "Northern Mysteries and Magick" by Freya Aswynn(formerly "Leaves of Yggdrasil"). The runes are a wonderful way to explore the "mysteries", and incorporate an ancient system of knowledge into your life. This system has much to offer the modern practitioner! Blessed Be

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Personal Deck!!!!! 1 Mar 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
This is the one deck no one else gets to touch! It has absorbed my vibes beautifully and the answers I get are right on target! It took a bit of time to get used to the artwork but I love it! The interpretations and correspondences are helpful and easily understood. A definite asset to my collection of tools!!

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 19 Mar 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I had this set 10 years ago but they were stolen from me. I was shocked at how rare and expensive they now are. I hate to buy used but thats all I can afford. Will have to do some cleansing and work before I can use them but I am extremely happy to have a deck again.

I love these cards. I enjoy seeing pictures, instead of just a rune symbol. Gave a set to my "rune master" friend, and she loves them.
