Runes – Gebo
The Runes are magical in nature, but also a practical written language. It is thought that the alphabetical order of these symbols derives from the Etruscans in Northern Italy – in the border region of Switzerland and Austria. The Germanic Tribes in the Alps merged their symbols with the Etruscan form of writing to create a working system for their people. The runes were used for good luck, love, blessings, a good harvest, victory in battle (engraved in sword blades), and divination.
Gebo or Gifu means gift; this can be the gift of life, an act of kindness, a loving relationship, a good harvest and so on. Being a perfect cross or X this is a rune of balance, and good things usually arise when equilibrium is found. This rune represented the goddess in her role as the All-Giver – she who could bring fourth life and prosperity to all. Later Odin, Freya and other gods/goddesses inherited some of her traits. This rune is associated with a wagon full of harvest goods that is used in several seasonal festivals. This rune asked you to examine and appreciate your own gifts or talents. Give thanks for the gifts you have and give a gift to others when it feels rights. Hand crafted porcelain – made in Australia
