Jera rune free cross stitch pattern

Remember, I promised to complete the whole runic series by the end of summer? I hope you don’t remember that vow, because I’m seriously out of schedule with six more runes to go, and the summer is almost over. But still, as I just wrote, only six more runes to go: that means that 18 runes are adapted into patterns already, and that’s a lot!

Today I made (very true to season!) Jera rune.

Jera literally means “year” and “harvest”. In a more symbolic way it is a rune of success, of good and fruitful season coming to your life. It signifies a time to reap what you sow, and sometimes – a point where you should make that one last effort to reach your goal and achieve your prize. But enjoying your harvest, remember to plant seeds for the new spring: Jera teaches us future planning and time management.

While most of the sources I check to know the meaning of runes rarely agree with each other (it is very funny how websites in English and websites in Russian write very differently about the same runes), all of these sources agree that Wunjo is the rune of happiness and joy. So I hope you will find joy in stitching it!

Rune Ansuz (Odin’s breath) cross stitch pattern

Rune Ansuz (Odin's breath) free cross stitch pattern

Starting the last ten uncovered previously by my patterns Nordic runes, is Ansuz – the rune of Odin, the rune of power and leadership.

Ansuz in the A of the Nordic runic alphabet, and stands for Odin, the ancestral god, who is said to give first humans the gifts of life and intelligence (this is why Ansuz is sometimes called Odin’s breath). This is the rune of wisdom, that governs our abilities to put things in order and name them. And because according to many ancient myths knowing the true name of something or someone gives us power over this thing or person, Ansuz is also a rune of great power. But always remember, that with great power comes great responsibility 😉

First of all I want to thank all of my readers, who responded to the recent poll about your favourite cross stitch motifs. It seems for now, that most of you love to cross stitch flowers 🙂 Oh, I love them too! so on the coming week I promise to make a flower freebie for you.

Ehwaz stands for a horse, and literally that rune means transport, transportation, or a vehicle. Symbolically it means more than that, of course, mostly being the rune of movement, steady flow of progress in your life. Ehwaz can be seen as an opposite to Isa.
Ehwaz is a sign that you will get results in your long and thorough work.
A horse is also a very loyal friend and companion, thus Ehwaz can mean a firm friendship or a lasting relationship/marriage. The tree for this rune is a (horse) chestnut

Raidho rune cross stitch pattern

Raidho is one of the runes that all readers agree on: it’s primary meaning is the journey, and that may mean both physical travels (that makes Raidho a traveller’s good luck charm) and metaphorical quests of our lives. It is an evolution in motion, a rule to move if we want to change and become a better person. It is also a talisman that helps to see your path clearly and not get distracted by obstacles.
