*Varian Facepalms*

Note to self:

Gebo (left) and Nauthiz (right)

These are actually different runes.

(A huge thank you to Beth, who commented that the rune that’s stalking me isn’t Gebo, but is actually Nauthiz.  I saw the X shape and my brain went “that’s Gebo!”  Oops.  *facepalms*)

I might write more about my divination studies on here, I may link back to this post if this rune continues to follow me through my readings.  I just wanted to make a note to myself that these are different runes, even though they look *very* similar at first glance.


I’m Being Stalked By Gebo

Edit: it’s actually not Gebo that’s stalking me, but Nauthiz.  At first glance the runes looked almost alike to me, so I mistook one for the other.

the Dreamer: Pull a rune.

Varian: Sure

Varian: *grabs rune bag and shakes it*

Varian: (under his breath) If I pull Gebo again…

the Dreamer: *is trying not to smile*

Varian: *pulls rune*


Varian: …really?  Again?

I’m being stalked by this rune.

Every.  Single.  Reading.  I’ve been doing lately has had Gebo in it in some way.

I’m still learning about runes, I’ve only just started studying them, but that I keep pulling this particular one is making me sit up and pay attention.  It’s not a bad thing, the rune translates to “gift,” but I’m side-eyeing that I’m being stalked by it.

Is the Dreamer using it as his personal “hi, I’m here” sign, like he does with the reversed Magician tarot card?  Or does it have another meaning, to be showing up so often in my readings?  Or am I not shaking the bag enough, so it always sits on top?

One thing that comes to mind, is that our third anniversary is coming up in November.  Maybe it has something to do with that, and with the dynamics of our relationships shifting since I was released from my oath to him?


Yes, Gebo can mean sacred marriage.

I didn’t know that.  Interesting.
