For the Path reading, one asks for suggestions how to behave properly to achieve a desired result. The Current column represents how the reader has been acting, and the Suggestedcolumn suggests how they should act to achieve a certain goal. The chart-like layout uses the standard three levels: Rational, Emotional, and External Stance (how one projects oneself outwardly). When comparing the Current and Suggested runes, the most important thing is to notice the differences between the two runes. It is these differences which hint at the behaviours that should be altered.
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 the reader is and has been thinking. Rune #7 suggests how to change the way one thinks to serve themselves better.
Rune #3 suggests the reader's emotional attitude. Though it may seem difficult to manipulate one's own emotions, it can be done if one puts their mind to it. For example, acting a certain way such as smiling intently for a few minutes will lead the emotions to follow. When a person tries this, as silly as the exercise seems, they find this to evoke the emotion of happiness. For this reading, one should try to make themselves feel the way that Rune #6 suggests.
External Stance means how one acts outwardly, how they hope others see them. Rune #4 is about how the reader has been acting, while #5 indicates how they should act outwardly, for other people's sake. It is the differences between these runes that hint at what behaviour patterns should be altered.
