Jera: (J or Y: A year, a good harvest.) The results of earlier efforts are realized. A time of peace and happiness, fruitful season. It can break through stagnancy. Hopes and expectations of peace and prosperity. The promise of success earned. Life cycle, cyclical pattern of the universe. Everything changes, in its own time. Jera Merkstave (Jera cannot be reversed, but may lie in opposition): Sudden setback, reversals. A major change, repetition, bad timing, poverty, conflict.
Jera literally means “year” and “harvest”. In a more symbolic way it is a rune of success, of good and fruitful season coming to your life. It signifies a time to reap what you sow, and sometimes – a point where you should make that one last effort to reach your goal and achieve your prize. But enjoying your harvest, remember to plant seeds for the new spring: Jera teaches us future planning and time management.
The tree for Jera is grape vine.
