Pantheons of the North


Yggdrasil

 
 
Attributions here are based on ideas traditionally associated with the planets and Zodiac of Classical mythology. These are well entrenched and provide a useful basis for contemplation.
 
In the present context the planetary attributions at the top of the chart may be thought of as being the more idealized or archetypal, the lower ones being the more mundane or everyday. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto exert their rulership through Aquarius, Pisces, and Scorpio respectively below.
 
Although the word Pantheons is used here, not all attributions are deities. They may be legendary beings, doctrines, or even material things.

Footnotes:
 
1. Odin knows that a broad wisdom comes from the study of many things. For attributions covering a great many things of universal value, although not all specifically Nordic see "Traditional Arcane Teachings". The Key Number column here will provide links to that material and among all similar charts in all of the author's writings, and also in Aleister Crowley's "777" from whence it originates. Where there is no number, there is no link. Most Norse attributions are from Names and Sources in "Gods and Myths of Northern Europe" by H. R. Ellis Davidson, Penguin Books (Baltimore, 1964), pp. 227-240. Descriptions appear in that volume.
