It is a rune of time, namely one year, because that is how much it takes to grow and collect grains. This rune also symbolises awaiting the goal to be achieved but in an active way similarly to agriculture: to collect the grain you have to prepare the soil, sow the seeds, water them, remove the weeds etc.
