Rune of the Day: Jera
Jera is a rune of earned success, harvest, patience being rewarded. With Jera there is no quick attainment of goals; you receive what you have worked for, but not until everything is done.
Jera historically represented a one year turn around, as with crops. Although many things are faster today, Jera still represents a slower success, a gain that has been earned and worked for. Patience is essential when Jera appears: you will get what you have been working for, but not right away.
If Jera appears when you are just starting a new project, then your outcome is practically guaranteed to be favorable, just not speedy!! If it appears near the end of a project, know that you will have the successful outcome you have been working for.
Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Pentacles
The Ace of Pentacles represents new beginnings, usually financially, but it can also represent a new found spiritual wealth. These new beginnings can take many forms: a new job, a promotion or raise, a source of second income or sudden or found wealth.
Although most frequently this card represents the beginning of a long term financial change such as a new job or promotion; sometimes it does represent a sudden influx of wealth. Now, wealth is relative, it may mean a $10 win on a $1 lottery ticket, or it may mean finding an Antiques Roadshow worthy piece of furniture at a garage sale.
Sometimes, this does represent the beginning of a new spiritual connection, perhaps contact with a previously unknown guide who can help you enrich your spiritual life.
This card represents a new beginning, be it material, spiritual, or both. Its up to you to nurture that seed and bring it to blossom, or to neglect it and lose the opportunity to see what it can develop into. Even the lowliest job can open doors, if you are truly doing your best to improve yourself and your situation.
