Othala Rune Tarot Spread

There’s no place like home.

Othala is the rune of home and inheritance, as well as of fixed wealth (compared to Fehu’s moveable wealth). In old times, the Swedish term odal was used to designate a property that could not be divided up for the sake of inheritance but must pass on whole to the first person in line to inherit. This person would be known as an ‘odalsman.’ 

In a holistic rune reading, other than designating a physical home or fixed wealth, Othala can take on the meaning that ‘home is where our heart is.’ It can also signify Heaven, which is rather fitting for the final rune in the row.

For the rune Tarot spread below, I want to focus on both aspects of this rune – the mundane and the spiritual. There is no dichotomy here as per, ‘As above, so below.’ 

The Anglo-Saxon rune poem for Othala:

[An estate] is very dear to every man,
if he can enjoy there in his house
whatever is right and proper in constant prosperity.
