Othala represents a solid, immovable home, prosperity and safety. Good fortune based on your heritage and character is yours to enjoy. This rune speaks of a re-focusing and re-assessing your fundamental values. It is possible that you may need to give up old ideas and shed your belief in them in order to preserve what is most important to you.
Othala reversed represents chaos and homelessness—a general lack of roots. Now is a time for you to take care of that which you have, so as not to lose it. Othala reversed is lack of customary order, totalitarianism, slavery, poverty, homelessness. Bad karma, prejudice, clannishness, provincialism. What a man is bound to.
