Weekly Rune – Othala

Posted by on 10 Feb 2014 in The Weekly Rune | 4 comments

Othala – property – When Othala last appeared as The Weekly Rune  mid-November, it was reversed. This time it’s murk-stave (face down), and the timing and position of the stave now is curious to me, as life feels as frenetic as it was those weeks leading into the holidays. Note that the image shows Othala upright, or bright-stave. Most regard Othala as the final Rune in the third aett, though some scholars position it elsewhere. Regardless of where it’s located, the agreement of its emphasis on inheritance remains the focus  (Do comment if you have thoughts on its alternate placements!). Othala reminds us of what is most important. Where Fehu...

Othala – property – I don’t generally draw reversed Runes, so working with them has seldom been a concern for The Weekly Rune. However, this week’s Othala did, indeed, present reversed, and I feel it’s worth exploring the Rune as such. Note that the image presents Othala upright, or bright-stave. Othala reminds us of what is most important. Where Fehu brings awareness to wealth that must be tended–assets, and investments–Othala focuses on that which we own that in many ways tends us–our property, that which we inherit, then pass on. Spiritually speaking, it calls our attention to the wisdom of our ancestors, and calls us...

Othala - property - Take a second and consider how you got exactly where you’re standing at this moment. What did you go through this morning to be presentable, nourished, and capable of holding the space you currently occupy? Now think back to a year ago, five years ago, and what choices you made then that led to this moment. When you’ve sat with that for a moment, consider what choices your parents, their parents, and that of those who came before them, which you brought you to precisely where you are. What about this moment is working on your behalf? Name it. List it outright in detail, and see the support around you and within you for what it is. Then...

Othala - property - Remember that journey we took with Raidho last week? Well, we did it right!  Over the last few weeks the story of the Runes has been interesting. Three weeks ago we had Dagaz, second to the last Rune – complete connection. Following it was Othala, the “last” Rune, bringing the inspiration to share within that connection. Raidho came along, a celebration of wild cowboy skills in how we move forward, not just to share the connection, but devise how we can take it deeper. So here we are, right back at that very opportunity!  This is why I love the Runes. Such a clear oracle: the story they tell is our own. This week’s Destination...

Weekly Rune – Othala

Othala – property - How telling that last week Dagaz appeared, the second to last Rune, and this week we greet Othala, the final Rune in the Futhark. Dagaz encouraged us to enjoy the fruit of our work, and now Othala instructs us to take that bliss to heart. Often concerned with what we own, inherit, then pass on to others, Othala is about our center. What sustains us, what grounds us into Nature and All Things, what carries us when all else crumbles. It’s hard to think in these terms when life is going well. Yet how we develop our awareness in the good times is what allows us to make it through the hard times. Holding to discipline amidst bliss can be as...
