Gebo: The Rune of Love, Gift and Forgiveness GemShoppy November 28, 2014 Symbols Gebo relates to all kinds of exchanges including contracts, love, marriage and intercultural congress. Gebo promises balance and equality. It is a rune that can’t appear reversed, but if it is cast merkstave, then greed and loneliness will cast their shadows causing spiritual and emotional emptiness. Gebo is an excellent talisman to strengthen a relationship and to bring luck and fertility. It reinforces our connections to our fellows and provides us with a safety net against inevitable bad times. Gebo is the rune of communication, partnership and unions, of all kinds. The Gebo rune also indicates giving and receiving and putting wisdom into action to reap rewards. Gebo is a rune of connection, particularly those between people. This rune represents places where our paths intersect with others and gives us the opportunity to form relationships. Such relationships are strengthened and sanctified by the exchange of gifts, both tangible and intangible. Gebo is telling you to reassess where your truths lie, what your beliefs are and informing you that you need to take stock of your life. People, places and objects may not fit into your current lifestyle. Take stock of what you have, what you need and require, then shed what you no longer need. This is your opportunity to de-clutter your life. It is also an opportunity for you to give the gift of charity by giving your unwanted goods to those less fortunate. In doing so, you will reap the rewards of the soul.
