Pagan Blog Project – O is for Odin

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.
