I recently got my Amethyst Runes and started getting more into it. It was pretty hard to find some good information online, so I thought I’d share with you guys what I found! I just write down what I have in my book of shadows, and this is just what I found, so there may be things that I wrote wrong or that doesn’t fit your believes. I request you look up on this subject yourself too, but this right here might give you a head start.
Runes are symbols which may be used in divination. They are very old and there are many theories as to how or when they originiated, but it’s well known that they were used in Europe.
The word itself comes from the old norse word “Run”, and the old german word “Runa”, which translates to “whisper” or “secret”. Runes are closely tied to Odin and according to ancient germanic people they were created by him.
The runic alphabets are called “Futhark”, after the first six runes, which are Fehu, Uruz, Thurisaz, Ansuz, Raido and Kenaz. While the elder furthark has 24 characters, just like our alphabet, there are also other versions of the Futhark which range from 16 to 33 characters.
Now to the Meanings!
I have to say, I had a really hard time looking up the meanings of every rune. While some runes have the same meaning everywhere, others seems to have a different meaning every time. I chose what was either mostly named or felt right for me. Feel free to share what you found out about them, or how you use them in the comments below!
Every rune is associated with a letter of our alphabet, so I decided to include them and write them right beside the name. I don’t have the sources to post pictures of every rune (nor the space), but you can easily look them up youself online and get in touch with them.

The Blank Rune
No one really knows how or when it came into the set, but at somd point, the blank rune has been occasionally beed added and used in a reading. Using the blank rune or not is personal preference. It can be useless to you or help you, it’s your choice whether you keep it or not. If you do, it should be read and used based on intuition. Consider it’s placement and the relation and connection to other runes. Some runes sets doesn’t even include the blank rune.
It may represent Odin or Fate.
Please note that these are just the names of the runes that I prefer, there are a lot, lot, LOT more other pronounciations or names for each rune, but adding them in here too would be too much.
Runes also have reversed meanings, but that is sonething I haven’t got into by now. Just research for yourself a little bit, learn some more and stick to what feels right to you.
Now to casting them. There are many different ways to cast runes. You may simply pull runes out of a bag with your eyes closed, or you dump some or all of them on the ground. You can do simple Tarot Spreads with your runes or look up different ways to use them.
You can use the runes in magic as well! You may use fitting runes in a spell, or write with then in your book of shadows, or draw them on your altar, wand, etc. There are many things you can do with runes, just take your time and get closer with them!
I hope you liked this little lesson and that it may help you an your way.
Summary: A casual thing becomes regular, there’s one rule only: No strings attached.
A/N: Inspired in P!ATD’s Casual Affair. A lot of sex comes under the cut. Feedback is love, feedback is life.
Hey, a casual affair
that could go anywhere
and only for tonight
You looked around you and prayed for the door
to not creak as it tended to do. You sneaked inside and the sight made you
smile wickedly. The God of Mischief was lying on his bed with the light of his
side table on and a grin that matched yours.
In a split second, and by means of his magic
you thought, he was already overpowering you and keeping you in place between
the cold door and his also cold body. His breath brushed your lips, and his
emerald-green eyes pierced all the way to your soul.
“I’ve missed you, princess” he growled, keeping
his mouth just millimeters away from yours, “so, so much…”
“Why keeping me waiting, then?” You retorted.
He snickered mischievously, and what you
thought was going to be rough, was completely gentle. His lips pressed against
your own and his hands moving along the curves of your frame were soft and they
lingered on your skin as if they didn’t want to let you go. You felt him
sighing in joy when he found an uncovered spot of skin.

Restraining Order Sought Against Dylann Storm Roof
This restraining order was sought back in 2015, it is quite clearly a joke, but was still read, considered and subsequently denied by the court. It has also been filed with all of Dylann’s official court documents.
Complaint: Defendant Dylann Storm Roof is racist and a bigot. He is a covert member of the KKK and has direct contact with David Duke who is Dylann Roof’s uncle. Frazier Glenn Cross is also Dylann Roof’s uncle. Timothy McVeigh is/was Dylann Roof’s cousin. Dylann Roof is a danger to society and bigot. He has nazi symbols under his bowl haircut that he used to get by Tattoo Baby in Florida with my stolen American Express.
Count 1: Dylann Roof stole my Jay-Z/Kanye West single ‘No Church’, and Dylann Roof committed robbery at Popeye’s Chicken.
Count 2: Dylann Roof has secret ties to Winston Churchill at Churchill Downs since Church’s pentagon papers. Dylann Roof broke into Joel Osteen’s Mega Church in Texas to steal funds to buy handguns. Dylann Roof’s hair looks like Adam Lanza, both are Project MK Ultra mind control (unreadable) for new world order. Dylann Roof took a selfie on the (unreadable). Dylann Roof’s aunt is Paula Deen. Dylann Roof is gunna get roofed, I seek the death penalty against him.
Motion For Restraining Order: I seek a restraining order against Dylann Roof ever entering Heaven. He is a danger to the afterlife.
