This week, I chose to cover the Norse God, Odin. I am not at all familiar with the Norse pantheon so I thought this was a great opportunity for me to look into it.
- Man in charge
- Allfather of the gods
- Lives in Asgard
- Had premonition of final battle, Ragnarok, where they all would die, making them mortal unlike other pantheons.
- Hung from the world tree, Yggrdrasil – Hanged man card in tarot?
- Associated with war, battle, victory, death, wisdom, Shamanism, magic, poetry, prophecy
- May sons, most famous is Thor (Thor’s Day – Thursday)
- Wife – Frigg/Freya (Friday – Freya’s Day)
- Wednesday – Woden’s (Odin’s) Day
- Along with his brother, they defeated the frost giant, Ymir, and created the world from his body, blood and bones. http://www.gly.uga.edu/railsback/CS/CSOdin&Ymir.html
