Runes Numerology relates numerology with the runic form of divination. The numbers and the runes stones can have a positive effect on our lives if we know the importance. This tool aims to give you an idea about these two forms of esoteric divination. Rune stones are 24 one-inch squares of light stones. On one side of each is inscribed in ink the form and name of an individual runic letter. During the middle ages, the people of Northern Europe, the British Isles and the Scandinavians used certain alphabetic scripts which, these days are popularly known as Runes. There is no documented evidence as to when the Runes have been used as a form of magic and divination. But today Runes are used much like the Tarot cards for the purpose of fortune telling.
