We offer you an on-line prophecy using the runes.
Runes originate from the Northern part of Europe that, a long time ago, used to be inhabited by the Vikings who used to live in a close contact with the land and its mysterious powers.
Vikings used to have their own system of religion and mythology that contained a number of deities. God Thor´s father, Odin, was the creator of runes and he belongs among the most important figures of the Viking folk traditions.
One day, Odin hung himself up-side-down from a branch of a tree to become wiser and to acquire knowledge of the real laws of the world. Before he climbed down he became aware of the new system called Runes. These symbols were used by the high priesthood not only for writing but also for magic purposes.
