rune pairs: gebo | ehwaz

©2021 Michael Raven

i draw the blade
make the cut
make myself a gift
of sacrifice
though there is doubt
of my waking dream
trust this is for the best

gebo: gifts, exchange, sexual/mystical union, oaths, equilibrium, sacrifice, divine vision

ehwaz: sexual energy, trust, teamwork, symbiotic relationships, complement, harmony

Note: There is no divinatory question being considered, but merely an investigation into the relationships the runes might suggest as they come together. For these exercises, I am not considering the murkstave implications from the drawing, but focusing exclusively on the core concepts. At a later date I may consider the implications presented by a reversed rune — possibly when I start casting the runes in a more traditional way — but I am more intent on learning the primary meanings and making connections via wyrd at this time.
