For the Path, the querent asks for suggestions on how to behave properly in order to achieve a desired result. The Current column shows how the querent has been acting, and the Suggestedcolumn suggests how the querent should act in order to achieve a certain goal. The chart-like layout uses the standard 3 levels: Rational, Emotional, and External Stance (how one projects one’s self outwardly). When comparing the Current to Suggested runes, the most important thing is to notice the differences between the 2 runes. It is these differences which hint at the behaviors that you should think about changing.
Rune #1 is the significator, the rune which should reflect the nature of the query and/or the desired outcome.
Rune #2 shows the way you are and have been thinking. Rune #7 shows how you need to change the way you think in order to serve yourself better.
Rune #3 tells you about your emotional attitude. Though it may seem difficult to manipulate one’s own emotions, it can be done if you put your mind to it. For example, acting a certain way such as smiling intently for a few minutes will lead the emotions to follow. If you try this, as silly as the exercise seems, you will find that this evokes the emotion of happiness. For this reading, you should try to make yourself feel the way that Rune #6 tells you.
External Stance means how you act outwardly, how you hope others see you. Rune #4 tells you how you were acting, while #5 indicates how you should act outwardly, for other people’s sake. It is the differences between these runes that hint at what behavior patterns should be altered.
