|I'm not sure if this image works or not, but it's colorful and springy...|
I pulled a single rune via My Divination pertaining to my decision to find a part-time job this fall when my daughter begins school. I wanted to see the energy surrounding this idea. The rune I received is Gebo. Gebo is one I'm vaguely familiar with, but I wanted to study up on it a bit.
Here are some concepts and key words associated with Gebo:
- Balance, give, take,
- Trade or exchange
- Contract or agreement
- Relationship or partnership
- A proposal
As long as we're making tarot comparisons here, I'd say this immediately reminds me of the Six of Pentacles in tarot. Give and take, balance, receiving or giving a gift. In the Six of Pentacles we often see assistance given or received when it's needed most, as in a charity or if the personal is going through a particularly rough time. There's also a sort of Libran feel to it: a need to make sure everyone is getting a fair amount.
With regards to my specific question of part-time employment, I would say that Gebo refers to receiving financial assistance by taking on part-time employment, which may include a kind of partnership or agreement with someone else. This makes sense because my plan is to obtain part-time work assisting someone else or working with/under someone else. In my experience, I do better when given an assignment that has a deadline, or when working closely with someone else but in a separate, unique capacity, if that makes any sense. This definitely sounds a lot like what this rune represents, a kind of symbiotic relationship.
Anyway. I will update on this later, for sure. This may not be something I'll know until this fall, when my daughter begins school, but I am putting my feelers out now to see if I find any opportunities to pair up with someone or otherwise take on some kind of project.
