The runes are a set of small stones or blocks engraved with letters symbolizing the Whole in some unified way and utilizing the subconscious mind of the person doing the divination to mirror the reality of the querier. The ancient Norse peoples, which are also known as the Germanic tribes, used the runes to predict possible future outcomes or seek advice. They understood cause and effect, and the interconnectedness of all things. This method of fortune telling pre-dates the invention of the tarot cards by at least a thousand years. There are 24 runes in the set which correspond to the Norse or "Runic" alphabet, and one extra blank rune known as Wyrd which represents the disconnectedness of all things. Wyrd was pictured as a web, like that of a spider. The symbology is excellent. When the spider steps onto a thread (a path) the vibrations affect the entire web and that which is contained within the web, just as our actions affect our immediate world and those around us, and the actions of others affect our lives.When this "weird" un-rune appears, it signifies something major, generally a change for the better.
