Tarot Talk by Leila Vey

The Magician teaches that as human beings, we have the resources, the creativity, the intelligence and the power to manifest our desires.

It challenges us to claim our birthright, our destiny, and take responsibility for our choices. These are the lessons that link the Magician very nicely with Mannaz.

The Rune Poem: Verse XX Mannaz
A mirthful Man is to his kinsmen dear;
Yet each one must from the others turn,
Because Odin desires by his decree
To deliver that frail flesh to earth.
