mannaz

interloper rune

As I was moving my sachet of runes, algiz (ᛉ) fell to the floor. Because I rarely accept events such as that as being a coincidence, I have included algiz in the poetry above as a modifier rune.


Argument: Ever evolving this process, I have decided that three is a sacred number for runes (as is nine) and have expanded the number of runes to include in my exploration. Please do not confuse this for a wyrd reading, there is no divination implied in these rune explorations. However, there is always shamanic and internal alchemy being explored.
