I'm working on a geo node setup, and I'm stuck on the following problem:

The Z rotation of the runes should be aligned to the normals of the curve circle that's istancing them. An example would e.g. be an engraving on a ring.

This is how it looks right now

I have tried multiple things, such as

This Or This but those didnt work.

Thanks in advance

You should try to connect "Rotation" output from "Curve to Points" node with "Rotation" input from "Instance on Points" node.

Here is my more complex answer for very similar question:

Unable to rotate instances individually in Geometry nodes

And here are several other questions and answers about rotating something along curve:

Geometry Nodes - rotate point along curve tangent

Align object along curve (Geometry Node 3.0)

Accessing "n+1"th point instance in geometry node
