This is the first day of the runic fortnight of Jara, also called Jera. This rune represents the promise of a beneficial outcome. During this period, the world is able to manifest the slow, gradual emergence of something great. On a spiritual level, this is a time to work toward the inner germination of some seed within you, some part of the self that is growing quietly and in secret. The runic fortnight of Jara lasts from now through December 27th.
