Hand painted Glukstern w/Runes for Protection, Joy and a Good Year - Rune Decor


Hand painted Glukstern w/Runes for Protection -

The Glukstern or Hex Sign has a strong history in Germany and in America, thanks to the Pennsylvania Dutch. However, this sign is much older than that. The Hex Sign is a stylized version of Hagalaz/Yggdrasil and has been carved on houses and buildings in Germany for centuries.
"The buildings in which these signs appear mostly date from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth centuries. It is probable that the signs were carved by a certain group of "initiates " who still knew the symbols and how to work their magic." from RUNELORE

The foundation of this piece is HAGALAZ as in YGGDRASIL the world tree on which, and through which, all things in the multiverse exist. It is the ice crystal or hail which melts and waters the earth. It is the cycle of life, death and rebirth and the continuation of all things.
On the foundation of HAGALAZ is THURISAZ or the hammer of Thor. It is the mighty force of protection against those that seek to encroach on the natural world and into our lives. It is the mighty lightning strikes and the roar of thunder that break open the skies so that nourishing rain waters the earth. It is the guardian of the home and protector of the land. The protection and nourishment of crops and the home passes through WUNJO the rune of joy. Not only the joy that comes when all is well but the good cheer that holds us as we pass through trials. It is the harmony of family, kin and folk. Which brings you to JERA, the good year or good harvest. JERA is the balance of seasons which in Norse mythology was only summer and winter. This signifies the times of rest and the times of harvest that continue not only through the natural harvest but through our own personal growth and development, increasing year after year.

May protection and nourishing rains water your home, family and land to bring forth joy that carries you throughout the good year and bring you good harvest. That all this is carried from the ancestral roots and up through the many generations to come.
