If you were born between May 29 and June 13, happy birthday! Your birth rune is Odal, or Othala (or sometimes it’s even seen as Othila).
The Norn gifted you with your birth rune to help you achieve your destiny and fulfill your purpose. (There’s also a birth hour rune that relates more to your day-to-day life, as well as an ascending rune that reveals how you manifest the divine and how you’re perceived. If you’d like a complete rune-scope reading, please let me know!)
The literal translation of this rune is hereditary land, homeland, or inheritance.
Othala is a rune of ancestral value and power. Fehu, at the beginning of the runic alphabet, symbolizes wealth, but a liquid or transient kind. This rune represents permanent wealth that goes back from you to your ancestors, to the beginning. This means that your natural gifts or talents may be part of your birthright or inheritance!
But what does this rune mean for you?
Each of us has a lesson to learn on this journey through life. Let’s see how Othala can help if it’s your birth rune.
Gemini, you’re here to learn how to communicate and collaborate. This may mean focusing on your communication and relationships with others, but it could also mean creating a more effective connection between the two sides of yourself. After all, your energy is usually very positive, but sometimes your dual natures are dueling natures.
Othala comes between two very key runes. First, there’s Inguz, named for the god who brought unity and peace to the people and taught them to live in harmony. This was to have been our ultimate inheritance, but just as humanity has the free will to embrace and share it, we have the ability to destroy it.
Of course, this inheritance of this rune isn’t only about the family farm. Our lives are a literal inheritance from our ancestors, just as humanity itself is. And finding peace and harmony with others may be a challenge, but for a Gemini the challenge may be to create it within yourself. But to progress on your journey, you’ll need to.
Why? Well, on the other side of Othala is Dagaz, the last of the runic alphabet, representing a new day and new life. It is the ultimate achievement or paradise. Othala bridges the gap between establishing harmony and unity, and a rebirth or renewal. In this sense, your birthright is about a restoration of unity or harmony so that the promise of a new day may be fulfilled.
Gemini, let this rune serve as a reminder that when you align your dual natures with what is good and right, a new day will come and you will find the new life in the sun you deserve. Be compassionate with yourself to open communication with your Self – this will encourage greater harmony within yourself. Recognizing that your twin selves can unite for a higher purpose, and discovering how they can work together in their own ways is a unique gift that not all Geminis can claim.
