the types of drawings that you are doing. If using rune staves you are
going to read the runes in a different manner than if you are using
stones, which would be even different than casting sticks. It really
depends on your methods. From reading a lot of topics in this group,
the majority seem to select a certain number of runes from a bag and
read them according to a certain placement. In this case, i would
think the orientation of the rune that comes out would be inconsequential.
Personally i cast in a different method than most. I take a more
traditional approach where i cast all of the runes at once, after
which i discard the runes that are face down. From here postion and
orientation are key to reading the casting correctly. Distance from
yourself is a gauge of time, and if the rune is inverted, than you
could take the converse meaning of that rune. Not all runes can be
inverted, like Gebo for example, which makes using this technique less
complicated. Again, this is my method and reading inverted runes
doesn't apply for every method out there. As for wondering how to pull
a rune and make sure it is oriented the correct way...if you are
pulling them out one at a time, when you place the rune in front of
you, place it right side up.
I may have missed the mark on this question, but i hope what i put
