Mannaz

Mannaz (maw-nawz) is the fourth rune of the third aett, and the twentieth rune overall. It represents the evolution of mankind, or of individuals. There a sense of conscious movement, and this is sometimes called the “spiritual relationship rune.”

Mannaz reminds us of cooperation between two people, or a collaboration for the greater good. It resembles a double Wunjo, creating perfection and harmony. We are co-creators in our divinity.

In some tales, there was a god named Mannaz, who slept between three couples. Each bore his son, and each son represented a different state of consciousness.

Mannaz represents progeny, class systems, and branches of conscious thought.
