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.

rune jera glyph

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.
