If you say "rune" in Europe the runes people will most likely think of are not the Elder Futhark made famous by the marketing genius who sold Ralph Blum's book with the tactile experience of a set of cast runes. The magical runes are the Armanen runes, all of which are based on the hexagon and its diagonals. The money market was in producing books on the runes that Blum brought into public consciousness with 600,000 books and sets sold. But the magical runes for those interested in magic are the Armanen runes. This first section of a course given to practicing magicians, deals with the first six of the 18 sacred Armanen runes, how to study them, and how to use them to integrate their associated powers into the life of the runist. Rune magick melds seamlessly with every other kind.

 This first section of a course given to practicing magicians, deals with the first six of the 18 sacred Armanen runes, how to study them, and how to use them to integrate their associated powers into the life of the runist.  Rune magick melds seamlessly with every other kind.

Hagal/Nod
monoarmsmall02.jpg
 a monograph that follows from the Operator's Manual, which deals with the runes from FA to KA. This one deals with the next two runes in the Armanen circle.  It contains much of the material in the Hagal monograph which quoted it extensively, and also deals with the karma rune of the three Norns: NOD.

Hagal
monoarmsmall04.jpg
a monograph about one rune, the snowflake rune HAGAL.  It was written for the magically competent initiates of the College of Esoteric Studies in Barbados as part of a Master's program, and contains more practical magick than many big books that slavishly copy the Golden Dawn material.  Some of the material in the book has never been put on paper anywhere else.

The
Final Lesson
monoarmsmall03.jpg
a monograph about the ninth Armanen rune, IS, and how the patterns already dealt with in the previous monographs make it possible for a magickally competent person to work out for himself or herself how to finish the cycle of runes from first principles.

*Rune-magic is the great knowledge of cosmic energies, the recognition of hidden energies of nature, of the subtle heavenly, as well as earthly streams, waves, entities, and powers. All forms of higher wisdom, all secret knowledge of the world, are but fragments, and through the course of time have been for the most part distorted and corrupted; but at one time it had its origin in the divine, Aryan magic of the Runes. All languages of the world are derived from the Aryo- Germanic mother-tongue, which is both magical and alive. The Germanic Runic script is the script of all scripts. Runes are not just letters or verbal symbols but primal symbols of a living magical nature which whisper to us. These may be experienced physically through Runic postures and dances and are useful for your own well-being and even for the blessing of all mankind. Whoever physically forms and experiences the Runes in a pure and conscious manner, will have great secrets opened to him, if he practices, vibrates, and dances in the radio waves, subtle currents and flowing energies of the All. Accompanying ideal higher development, clairvoyance, astral perceptions, heightened psychic ability and prophetic vision will arise in the Runer, in the practitioner.
Siegfried Adolf Kummer from his book Rune=Magic, Translated and Edite by Edred Thorsson
