Gebo: (G: Gift.) Gifts, both in the sense of sacrifice and of generosity, indicating balance. All matters in relation to exchanges, including contracts, personal relationships and partnerships. Gebo Merkstave (Gebo cannot be reversed, but may lie in opposition): Greed, loneliness, dependence, over-sacrifice. Obligation, toll, privation, bribery.
The act of giving is a wonder for two: the one who gives and the ones, who accepts the gift. Gebo can symbolize both sides of the exchange. It is a rune for relationships and for meetings, a good symbol for anyone who has to work with people.
