Lara Veleda Vesta brings us this enlightening review on runes and how to use them to heal our feminine wounds and connect with our feminine ancestors. By going on a wild psychic journey with the runes to find your own personal meanings for them. 

She teaches us that we can create our own connection with the runes without having to worry about our heritage. The book also delves into Norns, giant goddesses that weave the web of fate in Norse mythology and how they are connected to the runes.


If you're looking for a guidebook on how to read the runes this may not be the book that you're looking for. There are no meanings to the runes in the book. Also if you're very traditional when it comes to what the runes mean what they're used for and where they come from then I suggest you look elsewhere. 

A lot of what the author writes is done through her own experience, not through actual scholarly papers or mythology. The book is completely geared to the feminine gender. This isn't a bad thing but if you are not a female but our transgender non-binary please understand that she uses female pronouns.

It's great that the first two chapters really goes into detail as to what to expect for the rest of the book. You're not surprised, so by the time that you get to chapter 10 you're not like "why the heck am I reading this!?" 

It's also a bit of a guide to show you how to get the most out of your experience working with the runes. I love seeing that the author didn't stick to some traditional meaning of the runes. Instead, she really goes into you finding your own meaning by communing with the runes. 

I enjoy that she gives you the translations to some of the poems related to the rooms. I really found it eye-opening how she shares her own experiences in communicating with her ancestors through the use of runes to heal her own feminine wounds. She even delves into working with blood magic and runes. Which is not something that you hear from most authors nowadays.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. The book is not your normal rune book. The book is well-written easy to follow and really brings a good service to the reader. By the end of the book, you do feel a sense of accomplishment. It really tries to help you out and be a better person to heal yourself.

It really diversifies how to use the rune which is something that you don't see in your standard rune books. It's also great for heavy-duty ancestral healing and Shadow work. So I recommend it for anyone who really needs to go on that dark deep Journey to clean out negative ancestral energy and that feels a calling to work with the runes.
