Also called Othel
Old Norse name: none
Where Fehu talks about
wealth in the sense of income, Othila indicates wealth as it relates
to possessions. The wealth of Othila is usually large, not easily
used-real estate, stocks and bonds, trusts. Othila can also indicate
wills, legacies, heirlooms, and inheritance in general.
Aside from monetary inheritance,
Othila can also indicate one's heritage and genetic inheritance-the
physical traits that one receives from mother, father, and grandparents.
Other runes with Othila may indicate what those traits are.
Othila can also indicate
assistance from an older relative, such as a grandparent, or assistance
from established firms or organizations, established foundations,
or even the government.
When reversed, Othila
often indicates delay. It can also indicate that the querent was
expecting some sort of assistance but will not in fact receive it.
By the same token, it could indicate that the querent was expecting
an inheritance that will not be forthcoming, or that the querent
wrongfully feels the "world owes me something." In situations
like that, Othila reversed is advising the querent to stand on his
own two feet.
In some circumstances,
Othila reversed may indicate someone who is wealthy from his or
her own actions rather than inheritance.
