The earliest account of runic divination is recorded by the Roman historian and traveller Tacitus in his Germania. Symbols, probably runes, were etched upon staves of wood taken from a fruitbearing tree, scattered, and then three staves were taken and read by the officiant. Perhaps known in the Old English vocabulary as a runwita or runeknower, they acted as counsellors and advisors and would have been runcrftig, runeskilled. This old threefold method of divination is today known as asking the Norns, or the three sisters of Wyrd OE, fate or destiny, representing the past, present and future. The runes are believed to invoke this power of wyrd both to read the future and for personal guidance and transformation. The runes also relate intimately to the Heathen Deities that name each day of our week. Mythologically they are primarily connected with Woden, their legendary discoverer after whom Wednesday is named.
