Jera is the runic symbol of karma. What you put into your world will eventually come back to you. This is the rune of the harvest. In a positive reading, it indicates a time of reaping the rewards of efforts you have expanded. The repayment of money and favors will come now. This rune has jurisdiction over justice and legal issues. Drawing Jera should be a reminder that events take time. There may be delays regarding legal issues or finances or the home. (Especially if Nied is involved.) In a mostly negative reading, Jera indicates that the problems can be alleviated with careful effort and possibly legal help. Paired with Isa, it indicates you will be paying for past misdeeds. Cast along side of Hagall or Nied, this rune shows that you are following some path for which you are not suited. In a spread involving Odin, you are tempting fate somehow. It is especially important for you to restrain from speaking ill of others.
Converse: Success or reward must be rooted out. You have latent talents or abilities which must be discovered.
