Eolh Reversed tells that there is someone you should avoid, or perhaps an offer that you should refuse. Someone may be using you. Consult the surrounding runes for a clearer indication of this. Beware of new “friends”, someone will try and use you. It is possible that you are deceiving yourself; don’t expect something for nothing.
