About Black Onyx
Black Onyx is a glossy dark gemstone usually associated with the Root Chakra. It is a stabilizing, balancing stone said to assist with mastery of the body's energy. Black Onyx can strengthen determination and willpower, and help bring wisdom in difficult circumstances.
About the Runes
The Runes are both an ancient alphabet and a set of powerful magickal sigils. They are particularly relevant to Norse and Heathen paths, but many Wiccans and other Pagans have adopted them because of their potency. According to legend, the god Odin received the runes after a long ordeal, and is revered as the patron of runic lore.
Using the Runes
Runes may be used for divination, magick, and meditation. For those who are unfamiliar with the meanings of the runes, there is a wealth of information about them in books and online.
The simplest way to use the runes is to ask a question, then reach into the bag and draw one rune stone. Using a book, your own knowledge, or another guide, interpret the rune as it applies to the situation at hand. For complex questions, you can even draw multiple runes, assigning them different positions in the reading as is often done with Tarot cards.
To use the runes in spellwork, choose a rune whose meaning embodies the quality or force you are seeking to draw to you. For example, the rune Thurisaz symbolizes masculine strength and protection, so it might be a good choice for a spellworking to shield you from a negative person. Place the chosen rune on your altar, add it to a spell bag, or focus on it during meditation or trance work.
Much like the alphabet can be arranged to create infinite combinations of words, your rune set is a magickal toolbox that you can return to over and over to produce endless results.
