December 9, 2010 – Gebo


Gebo is the letter G

Anglo-Saxon rune poem (from

Generosity brings credit and honour, which support one’s dignity;
it furnishes help and subsistenceto all broken men who are devoid of aught else

Gebo signifies the bonds, relationships and contracts that exist between us all. It is generally indicative that the relationships you foster are going to be important. These can be intimate relationships, business relationships, or casual relationships. Being generous or receiving the generosity of others brings with it obligation, unless stated otherwise. It is also that exchange upon which society and human connection thrives. While some avoid getting too tied up in obligations (and some obligations, especially money are probably worth avoiding in many cases), complete avoidance is harmful to you, as much as it is to other people. You should enter into commitments, but as you do so, remember to read the fine print, and make sure the terms are clear. You are as much to blame for errors because of the lack of knowledge.
