Rune Study Post #8: Gebo

Happy Wednesday! Today's focus will be on Gebo, the seventh rune of the first aett.

Gebo translates to "gift," and connects to themes of gift giving, generosity, reciprocity, and exchange of sexual energy.
An Anglo Saxon rune poem (translated by Marijane Osborn) reads:

Giving is a grace that gains respect 
and honor for the giver; those owning nothing
find it a help when perhaps there's no other.


1) What other meanings do you attribute to Gebo?

2) How do you utilize this rune in your practice?

3) If Gebo has presented itself in your rune castings, how have you seen its energy manifested?
