Runes are the divination tool that we are going to talk about today.
So let’s have a look at how you can use the powerful tool of runes for November 2019.
But first: Beneficial Thought – How to Use Rune Stones for Love Readings
A Brief Overview of Runes:
Runes have been used as far back as 150 AD, but they have not always been used as divination tools. The system of runes started with runic alphabets in the Anglo-Saxon German and Scandinavian regions, but were also seen in many cultures in the medieval eras.
They were initially used as an alphabet that when written would go from right to left, as opposed to left to write as we do in the English speaking world today. After their use as an alphabet, they were used mythologically on stones for divination purposes.
Each of the letters of the Runic alphabet would be inscribed onto a stone, with one stone representing each letter. Each stone and each letter has a symbolic significance that can be used to answer questions in your life. These stones are then used like the Tarot system. You ask a question, and then draw one or several runes from a bag to get clarity and answers.
Now when it comes to November, you are thinking about a lot and have a lot of questions, and there are runes for that. Today we are going to look at the two runes that correspond with the month of November, and give you an idea of what themes and questions to ask when you are working with runes. Have a look at these runes and their meanings, and really begin to think about how the themes within these meanings will fit in your November 2019 life and everyday questions.
After this primer, go ahead and pick up your own rune stone set, and you will have access to answers and clarity at your fingertips, anytime you want.
Naudiz – Your Needs Matter
Naudiz is a rune stone that is shaped almost like an X. It has the theme of needs. This rune also symbolizes a dual nature, as noted by the two lines that intersect in the middle. This is a rune that often comes up in readings when you are wondering about what next. This rune brings with it the message then to examine your individual needs in the situation and make decisions from there.
It’s important to note that “needs” is the key word here. We tend as humans to be in a constant state of perpetual want. We always want more, particularly in this society of instant gratification. This rune is sending the message that what we want may well be different than what we need. So if you pull this rune in a reading, the message is that it is time to be honest and authentic with your needs.
Now, what this tells us about November 2019 is that your needs need to take a bigger priority over your wants. You may have a ton of questions for the month as you begin to wrap up the year, and you have a lot of goals as well. But maybe they aren’t aligned with what is spiritually best for you.
Use Naudiz to really assess what your needs are at this time of year. When you feed those needs, your spiritual zen is just moments away. Even just making the decision to be more honest with yourself about what you need brings peace.
So maybe this means you need to rid yourself of something that is not a need, but is a want. Unhealthy relationships, jobs that have you in a rut, or even friendships that are sucking it all out of you, may fit more in your “want” category than your “need” category.
But at the same time, Naudiz has this dual nature that we need to remember. It’s not unlike the dual-sides of the Mutable sign of the Air signs Gemini. So you need to be on your toes when you are dealing with this assessment of your needs and wants. You’ll be flip-flopping a little bit, and just need to take that big breath and follow your instinct.
Because when you do, and you tap into those needs, you start to see more miracles blossoming in your life. Doing what is good for you is always what is best for you.
Hagalaz – Transitions & Transformations
The second rune that is accompanied by the month of November is called Hagalaz, and it looks just like the letter H in our alphabet. This is the rune of transitions and transformations, and also symbolizes death of sorts. This is significant for November because we are in the period of the year where the Fixed sign of the intuitive Water sign Scorpio is prevalent in November, and is also the zodiac sign of transformations and transitions.
It’s all about this wheel of Fate that sends us experiences that transform our lives and guides us through life’s transitions. Hagalaz can be somewhat destructive, and you can compare this rune to the planet of Pluto, which also rules Scorpio. So when this rune pops up in a reading, you’re being told to expect some walls to come down. Or you may be undergoing some transitions or transformations. As you use Naudiz to assess your needs you make changes if you are using these themes authentically.
And that’s where Hagalaz comes in. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end, as the old Green Day song goes. But Hagalaz is not to be feared, even though this rune offers up a tone of death.
October offered us up some new beginnings, and November is going to be about wrapping things up. Use your numerology readings in conjunction with your rune readings in November, and you will be feeling the love and enlightenment all month long. And with enlightenment comes clarity… and peace.

These transitions are life transitions. You move from one job to another, one relationship to another, one goal to another. And so it’s really time to assess what you need to transition from and to at this time of the year. And when you do that, you find your spiritual zen and happy place and are one step closer to true enlightenment.
So now you have a little taste of November runes, and the themes you can expect to work with when it comes to this month. You want to focus on being honest about what you need, and not really focused on what you want as with the Rune Naudiz. You need to then use that information to guide your Self through life’s transitions through Hagalaz.
When you do, you won’t worry so much about getting goals accomplished by the calendar date of December 31, 2019. Instead, you will be accomplishing the most important goal of all – spiritual zen. It’s called peace. Be sure you are bookmarking your Daily Horoscopes, and add your Free Daily Tarot Reading to your morning to-do checklist to ensure that every day this month is as fabulous as you are. What do you think you NEED to have done this month to achieve that human state of peace?
