Unfriendly runes

I decided to try out a runecaster that was making the rounds. I can only conclude that the Norns have a perverse sense or humor, or else have it in for me. My past is supposed to be full of fulfillment and joy, love, general good stuff. My present is supposed to be trying to maintain that, and my future is the rough equivalent of laying The Tower in tarot.

Wow, if my past *hasn't* been more in the lines of what the future rune holds in this runecast, I really *hate* to think what it portends for the future. Maybe all my friends dead, my life in shambles, no job, living under a bridge somewhere? I mean, if it thinks what I've been through so far is The Good Stuff, I really don't want to know what the future portends.

However, I think it's more that the Norns are saying "stop playing with this stuff." I know that casting runes is spurious (might as well cast the roman alphabet...oh, isn't that what a "spell" really is?) I think that this is sort of a "don't even go there" message.

Seriously, though, I have a lot more faith in the Silicon Valley Tarot.
