When casting runes one should pay particular attention to not only the individual runes in the casting, but where they lay in relation to other runes is important as well. Here are some of the more important rune interrelations that should be considered in castings.
The Self Look to the rune following Mannaz for who the potential enemies are or in what way the problems can be avoided.
Initiation When perth is the first rune to appear in a reading the casting should be postponed and performed at another time.
(Reversed) Constraint Look to surrounding runes for clarification as to what influences are going on here.
Joy Wunjo can nullify the negative runes that fall close to it in a casting.
Movement Reinforces the meanings of those runes that land close to it in a casting.
Breakthrough If Dagaz is immediately followed by Odin’s rune it could portent a death (either physical or of a situation).
Wholeness Does not reverse negative runes but does shed a little more hope on the situation.
Standstill Reinforces the meanings of adjacent runes.
