Generosity brings credit and honour, which support one’s dignity; it furnishes help and subsistence to all broken men who are devoid of aught else.
“2 – Partnership A Gift -Gebo
Drawing this Rune is an indication that partnership in some form is at hand. But you are alerted not to collapse yourself into that union. For true partnership is only achieved by separate and whole beings who retain their uniqueness even as they unite. This counsel applies at all levels: in love relationships, in business matters, in partnering of every kind, remember to let the winds of Heaven dance between you.
There is another realm of partnership that we are being called to consider. For the path of partnership can lead you to the realization of a still greater union – union with the Higher Self, union with the Divine. The ultimate gift of this Rune is the realization of the Divine in all things: God always enters into equal partnerships. Gebo, the Rune of Partnership, has no Reverse: it signifies the gift of freedom from which flow all other gifts..“
This month, The Daily Oracle will be devoted to the Viking Runes. I am not a scholar of this divination method, and as with my cycle with The I Ching, I will be using a combination of my own astrological observance, together with text from another authority. For my reference I will be using a book that I have had for very many years, “The Book of Runes” by Ralph Blum, which is still in print…. but also available on the web as a free PDF. As with The Tarot, I will be invoking my own choice of deity to watch over me as I seek guidance on behalf of all who find this oracle. If you wish to read about how the Runes were discovered, there is a good site HERE that is a wealth of information on all things Norse.

My name is Joanna Grant, I am an Astrologer, Tarot Reader and Writer, who lives on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in the South West of Ireland. I can often be found at home, deep in arcane research, or practicing some new form of divination whilst burning the dinner! My children probably wish that I was “normal” but may well remember my eccentricities fondly when they come to face the challenges of their own paths. My long knowledge of Astrology leads and informs my practice, in offering guidance, empowerment and healing, helping others to lead a more authentic and magical life. You can read more about me here.
