Sacred runes

I found a pendant with an interesting "rune" on it down in a crystal shop in San Juan. Interesting because it's very familiar, but in a totally different context from what I know. Mostly, I am familiar with this "secret rune" from Northern European systems, where it is loosely known as "the Star of Light." It represents the "sacred J" that cannot be pronounced but shows up as sh, zh, soft g, j, h, and other variants. It is also the first letter of Jilara, and my personal mark has always been the Star of Light with four dots.

Well, here was the Star of Light on a pendant, rather like an ahk, or the female symbol, but instead of a looped top, here is the Star of Light. It said it represented Juno in the Roman system. Interesting. Of course I had to have it.
