Relationship Layout #2
This relationship layout focuses on the common ground of the relationship, with 3 runes in the middle column showing the common ground. The middle column essentially shows the past, present, and future of the relationship.
Rune #4 shows the common base of the relationship, which may be thought of as the past events which have shaped their characters, bringing them together. Rune #3 represents the current connection that binds them together, the values they share. Rune #7 shows the common goals that would keep them together moving into the future.
The columns on either side show what each partner brings to the table. Remember, relationships need not be romantic, and they partners could even be groups rather than individuals, whatever you choose. In this layout, the other person is on the left hand side, and you, the querent on the right.
Runes #1 & 2 indicate the separate personalities of each member of the relationship. These runes form a sort of bridge with the runes beneath them, #5 & 6, which show the qualities that each partner offers the other person, and thus to the relationship as a whole.
