Shadowhunters season 2 reminds us just how useful runes are for these warriors! Which rune do you need most in your life right now?

Runes are a great way to help Shadowhunters get through their daily lives. Their appointment by the Angel Raziel, dictates that they govern the Earth and keep all demons and other supernatural beings in order. In order to ensure that the Shadowhunters are ready for any task, applying runes to one’s body provides extra powers.

Sure the Covenant is in place, but sometimes things get out of hand.

Season 2 sees quite a few runes coming into play early in the season premiere. A cloaking rune gets Clary out of the Institute, while Alec almost uses his Parabatai, combine/friendship, rune to call upon Jace.

Check out our review of the Shadowhunters season 2 premiere!

But wouldn’t it be nice to walk down the street without the threat of a demon jumping out at you and still reap the benefits runes provide?

Have a big speech to give or need to ask your boss for a raise? A fearless rune might come in handy. Do you have a hard time understanding what those around you are saying? A speak in tongues rune would really help you out! Have a ton of work or training to work through today? Maybe you need a stamina rune.
