The Mannaz rune is a double Wunjo rune, the rune that brings joy in family and kin becomes the rune of one who blesses clan and society through the strength of self. Mannaz means ‘man’ (in the sense of ‘human’ rather than a male), and to me it acts as a reminder that exploration of the inner world does little unless we bring the gifts we receive into our every day lives.
