July 1, 2010 - Jera
Jera is the letter J, but is pronounced with a “y” sound.
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
Summer is a joy to men, when God, the holy King of Heaven,
suffers the earth to bring forth shining fruitsfor rich and poor alike.
While Jera is often translated as Summer or Harvest, it also means Year. It is an excellent beginning for July, as it does signify that summer is well established (especially here in Southern California) it also combines well with the rune for July, as part of the symbolic meaning of Jera is the idea of hard work and patience which combine to create, build or nurture a task into something that brings gain and reward, much like the harvest as the end of long period of work. So, settle in, get patient and start planning, working, and laying down the foundations to build what you desire
