Best Course of Action: Look beneath what appears to be… Fate will bring serendipity.

Hebrew Letter:


Element: Air


I love both the feminine and the masculine parts of myself and wish to share my integration with others by demonstrating how accepting I can be.

I am loving union, the coming together of two parts to create a greater whole.

I am integration and wholeness, a synthesis or reconciliation of old and new, masculine and feminine, intuition and reason, body and spirit.

I am relationship and partnership, the ability to open oneself to another, to trust, make commitments, and forgive myself and others.

I am turning points: difficult choices between old and new, security and risk, respectability and non-conformity.

I accept life’s limitations; I have learned that it is often necessary to reject one thing to obtain another.

Gem: Agate

Rune: Gebo – Partnership
