This Rune announces a state
of security and relaxation, a sense of well-being. Light is finally
peeking through the clouds, fruits hang heavy on the branches, and bad

joy, pleasure and comfort both at home and outside. There is clarity and
a new energy that will allow you to understand, to balance, to renew
yourself and your personal relations. Necessary changes have already
been carried out, and now you may rejoice and receive Wunjo's blessings
Maybe you find yourself
surrounded by negative events apparently beyond your control. Drawing
this Rune indicates the possibility of havoc or jolts in your reality,
security, work, relations or beliefs. It is necessary to realize that
you are not at the mercy of external circumstances. I create my own
reality. In other words, your own nature is creating what is happening,
and therefore you are not helpless. Carefully examine the situations
surrounding you and your own beliefs and attitudes towards them. Hagalaz
informs you that you hold the solutions in your own hands.
Drawing this Rune indicates
that there might be delays and changes in the direction of your actions.
There are strong reasons to review your plans carefully. Restriction is
necessary. Nauthiz suggests to identify your Shadow, the dark side of
your nature which reflects to the outside in
the form of weakness. Try to discover what is it within you that
attracts misfortune to your life. Difficulties and failures, however,
can teach us plenty about ourselves. If necessary, rectify your

Positive achievements are
not probable at this moment. Activities are frozen and maybe all your
plans are halted. Nevertheless, do not despair: this is the moment of
gestation that precedes birth. This pause is probably due more to
external circumstances rather than internal. However, try to find what
internal aspects keep you in this position and let them go. Clean,
discard, let go of the past. This will help accelerate the thawing
process. Remember that the seed sleeps under the ground during winter.
Trust your own process and wait for the signs of Spring.
This Rune often announces a
fertile season, a happy coming to term. Jera is the Rune of beneficial
results relating to any activity or interest that concerns you at this
moment of your life. You have prepared the ground and planted the seed,
and now you must cultivate it. Jera offers an incentive towards success.
Don't expect fast results, however. As with a harvest, a cultivation
cycle or maturing process is needed to finally be able to recollect the
fruits of your labour. You have done a good job, and now Jera advises
you to persevere and to be patient.
This Rune is related to the
difficulties that arise at the beginning of a new life and the defences
that we build around us when facing the unknown. It often announces a
time of waiting, and thus its main advice is patience. It is recommended

such as sudden gains or the start of an unexpected relationship. On the
spiritual side, it is time to rise above yourself, above ordinary
living, in order to acquire a wider vision. Perth reminds you that the
external is unimportant, except when it is a reflection of the internal.
Opportunities and new
challenges are characteristic of this Rune. With them, however, unwanted
influences may arrive, and thus it becomes necessary to protect
yourself. Here, your maximum protection is the right action at the right
moment. If you are experiencing pain, don't deny it or try to hide from
what is happening. Observe it and learn from it, feel it and let it go:
the more you allow yourself to feel it, the faster you will be able to
release it. Algiz reminds you that you will grow, and being aware of
this may be your best protection in moments of doubt.
