Two runic oracle card decks
inspired by Norse mythology
by Mia Illuzia
Rune Dreams are two individual runic divination card decks inspired by Norse mythology. Both decks consist of 24 main cards, plus 4 bonus cards and 4 concept cards. The intention has been to evoke the atmosphere and energy of each rune in a way that allows space for you to create your own connection with each card.
The Original Edition is in colour, depicting the widely accepted meanings of Elder Futhark runes. The second deck, Valhalla Edition, consists of different, more eerie, shamanic imagery in black & white, and explores the rune themes through an increasingly interpretive, dream-like perspective. You can use the decks either individually or together: Which one is your favourite?
If you are a beginner, the imagery in these cards will guide you to remember what each rune symbolises. If you are a seasoned rune enthusiast, the images may serve as your personal gateway to the deeper meanings of your experience and individual path.
