Witch's Runes
   Witch's Runes are similar to Elder Futhark Runes  only with 13 stones, representing the Sabbats. 
   Each of the witchstones corresponds to one of the eight Sabbats. This gives an idea of hetimescale indicated in a reading. The stones are also allocated a simple answer, are male or female.  All may be relevant to a simple or complex reading. 
 
You will need a soft cloth to cast the stones upon. Concentrating on your question and on the witchstones and the link between the two, softly cast the stones upon the cloth. Read the stone in relation to your question. The stones closest to you are the most relevant - the furthest away are less. Any stones not landing on the cloth should be discarded as not relevant. Stones that fall very close together have a combined meaning, even if they do not immediately seem compatible. 
 
For a simple question, simply concentrate and then draw one stone from the pouch and focus on the relevant aspect.
