Comfort, harmony with others, this rune symbolises the proper thoughts and actions that lead to the proper results. It is good for gardening and farm work, for a happy home and welbeing. Draw Jera with long lasting ink over the front door at New Year Eve and the good fortune will stay in the home until the ink completely fades.
This is the rune of the Harvest, of the gathering of the crops. It is used in all legal operations and processes. Jera is connected with justice. It can be used for positive outcome after you have spent money , time and effort to achieve something.
Jera is fertility, creativity, peace, harmony, enlightenment. It symbolises the ever lasting movement of the cycles in the Universe.
Jera is used for manifestation into material world, for the fruition of our plans . It is a prise for the efforts that have been made in the past. Jera symbolises the 12 months of the year and the natural cycles and the change of seasons. Basically this is a positive rune, but it can be also regarded as the outcome of past deeds that means justice.
Jera does not have reverse meaning
Divination : now you are harvesting the results of your actions or efforts, it is a time to celebrate, a time of abundance and joy. But do not forget that winter comes after the summer / autumn. You should gain wisdom for the next challenge. Expect new challenges. You should prepare the soil and plant the new seeds.
The rune is drawn with the thumb starting from top to bottom.
“Jera is a rune of patience and movement with the harmony with natural tides of life. Moving with such life rhythms brings abundance and plenty. The cyclical recurrences in the biosphere and of the astronomical procession spirals through time, and contains many more profound secrets than does our common involvement with linear time, calendar dates and the clock.
Jera has to do with right timing. Jera is in the maxim “This too shall pass”, the proverb, “As you sow, so shall you reap”, and in the modern adage, “time heals all wounds.” Using this rune is the key to understanding the mysteries of time and the psychological importance of dividing and managing time. Deadlines bring out the best in us and motivate us to grow to levels beyond our present ability. It also moves us to strategically taking action when the time is right. Take advantage of the ups and coast through the downs.
Jera can magically speed things up or slow things down, and manipulation of subjective time in this manner is governed by this rune. In this rune we see the most stark western counter-point to the maxim ‘time is an illusion’. If a person sows no seeds, does no work, plants no goals and desire in his or her thoughts, Jera will bring about situations which reflect that lack. The ultimate consequences of past human action unfold into the future.
“Time and I Against Any Two.” “
“Jera means “season” or “year”, this rune relates to the cycles of the life. Jera announces the coming in due course of a good harvest if the good gestures were done at the right time. However due to its cyclic action, Jera announces however that it is only temporary, quite as the seasons which pass and follow on infinitely. Everything is in movement and everything returns to the same point because of the Nature’s cyclic movement. Furthermore being connected with Freyr and Freya, the twins gods male and female, Jera symbolizes the mystic union between the Earth and the Cosmos.
This rune can be written of two ways: the one is a rhombus which surrounds a mast, which symbolizes the realization of a stable state, but also the Cosmic Axis surrounded with four seasons. Jera rune also represents, written in this way, the mast carrying the garland of the harvests. Under this shape it means the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new.
The other shape of writing of Jera is the one of two Kenaz which interpenetrate without contacting. Under this shape, Jera is dynamic and symbolizes the change which goes towards the fulfillment.
Jera told us that all which is useful for our progress lies within us. It is just enough to sow according to the rules
Divinatory value : This is the time to harvest what was sowed. An expectation period, a cycle to be completed. If the present is difficult, a better cycle is going to come.
Spiritual value : Jera indicates the end of a negative cycle in the knowledge of oneself, and the beginning of a positive phase.
Physiological value : Influence on the blood circulation, the vertebral column and the intestines.
Wisdom guidance : ” You can reach the harmony only in the acceptance of the inevitable change ! Every thing begins to decline arrived at its peak. When you are at the lowest, you can only go up. All that you will have gained, will be resumed you one day.”
Until we merry meet again
