July’s rune stone message for your business is from MANNAZ. (Mann, Madr)
The message is that you should think through a problem before taking action.
The rune of humankind: Mannaz symbolically represents humankind, much like Ansuz, the fourth rune in the sequence, represents the gods. However, although this rune’s meaning may at first appear universal or impersonal, when Mannaz appears in the reading, its meaning is, conversely, always personal, it speaks directly to you and asks that you carefully consider its message.
This cautious rune is an appeal to your conscience – it urges self-questioning around issues of perfection and achievement, which may also trigger a much-needed reality check.
When this rune arrives in a reading, it is time for reassessment, to question yourself and the motives and aims of those around you. Mannaz urges you to remember that you are mortal and cannot be perfect. It asks you to be aware of your flaws but not let them paralyse you. If you are concerned about your status and how others perceive you, the appearance of Mannaz suggests that you watch out for delusion.
Examined which are the real issue at stake and which may be illusory. Healthy scepticism is your best ally now, so this is not an occasion on which you should commit to any binding agreements – at least until you have given yourself a final opportunity to think everything through just one more time.
Mannaz asks that you resist being pushed along by events and take back some control – so slow down, examine the issues from all angles, and then act according to your best and well-considered judgement.
