Complimentary Rune Readings with Jessica Superball
Every Sunday from 12 pm - 3 pm
The word “rune” means mystery, whisper, or secret. Rune reading, also called rune casting, is a form of divination: an oracle-reading system in which the reader consults stones or chips marked with symbols, to offer or gain perspective regarding situations or questions. Trained in the methods of dreaming expert Robert Moss, she can also help with dream interpretation.
Jessica performs readings with her own handmade set of runes of the Futhark runic alphabet, which dates back to ancient Germanic and Nordic tribes.
