The Runes of Mannaz
The Runes of Mannaz is a deck of 24 Oracle cards based on The Elder Futhark runes.
Runes were originally set of letters that formed ancient “runic alphabets” that originated in Scandinavian countries. The Elder Futhark refers to the oldest version of these alphabets and emerged around the First Century. Besides their use for language and communication, runes were also carved as symbols of power used for magic and divination.
Mannaz comes from the Germanic word for man; it also means mankind. In this deck, it represents our humanity, our “oneness” and the realm of our collective ideas.
The illustrations on this deck mostly depart from the myths and gods from the Nordic tradition normally associated with the Elder Futhark runes. They include myths and deities from many other different cultures and spiritual traditions. They include angels, elves, giants, aliens, totem animals, buddhas, fairies, mermaid, sorcerers, Greek, Indian, Egyptian, Nordic gods, and heroes, etc. They are a multidimensional interpretation of the Elder Futhark runes.
It is a deck designed for the Star seeds, Indigos, Lightworkers, mediums, healers, spiritual misfits, wanderers, empaths, modern witches, sorcerers, and shamans of our age as a tool to help them better navigate their human experience.
