xmidgard_missfitx I made this runic pendant tonight. Wood burned antlers with wooden beads on leather cord. I chose the #Othala or #Odal rune because of its strong ties to ancestry, culture and heritage.

Othala is the rune of the sacred enclosure, the homeland, the village, the homestead.

It is the family group, its' customs, lands, and language as well as the duties and responsiblities that go along with maintaining family ties.

Othala is the "inherited" wealth that comes from ones' ancestors and their customs and way of life as well as any property or physical attributes that are passed down from one generation to the next.

Othala represents the wise management of family assets or the loyalty to ones' family or kin.

This rune also represents leadership in clan or family matters and may refer to an elder or patriarch/matriarch such as a grandparent, or in business matters, a founding father of the company.

Magically, Othala can be used to invoke a solid and peaceful family or group life, or to generate continued growth and prosperity. It can also provide a link to ancestral wisdom through inherited natural skills and abilities.

This rune may be worked to protect, increase, or establish an inheritence or heritage intended for future generations. With this intent many magical efforts may come under the purview of Othala including teaching, mentoring, or other methods of passing along accumulated wisdom, knowledge, and tradition.

sabrinakapalina I recently took the plunge and had my dna analyzed by #23andme
This was fun! Not too surprised me and my mom did this together. I just got more kits for my dad and sister.... once theirs are done, my results should change a tiny bit.
