Interesting that we're already having a discourse about this kind of stuff, and at a (Unitarian) church service I attended on Easter, which included a lot about how many traditional Easter things (eggs, bunnies) actually relate to a Pagan spring ritual, they were doing this thing with runes.
You were to pick an egg from the basket, dye it after the service and then the rune (which had been drawn in white crayon) would show up, and you'd look it up on a nearby wall chart to see what your future holds, according to the rune you drew. I thought that was pretty cool, so my kids and I all took eggs. My 8-year-old daughter said, "Mommy, MINE's going to have to do with MONEY." I was like...uh...
Then when we dyed her egg and looked up her rune, it ACTUALLY DID MEAN MONEY. There wasn't even any ambiguity involved like "abundance." It said "financial gain, wealth, money." (Twilight Zone music is indicated....)
My son's rune had to do with remembering to be good, which for him right now is kinda appropriate because he's just learned how to backtalk.
My rune made me so mad I peeled the egg and ate it so I wouldn't have to look at it anymore. It was the rune of fighting and weaponry...two things that are completely opposite of anything in my nature or beliefs (other than "fighting for" the opposite of weaponry and fighting). I asked, "If you don't agree with your rune, can you trade it?"
And the answer was, "You might need to ascribe its shadow meaning to get what you're intended to find out." (Which, Deb, I think might be another way of saying, "you're out of balance...")
