The All Father God Odin had 2 Wolf Companions named Geri and Freki: meaning Greedy and Ravenous. They follow Odin wherever he goes. Wolf-Warriors, like Geri and Freki, were not mere animals but Mythical Beings: They completed Odin in ways Odin was lacking.
The Wolf is the traditional Spirit Guide of the Hunter, Warrior, and Magician. The Wolf represents a Dual Nature of Nurturing and Destruction. On one side, the Wolf is the living embodiment of fury, chaos, and brute wildness. In contrast, the symbol of the wolf also represents one of the most intelligent, loyal, and sociable of animals, living and hunting in a co-operative family based pack. While the wildness of the wolf is its greatest strength, it is its intelligence that is a Wolfs best asset which will temper, balance, and direct its fierce nature into Positive Action.
Our design shows the wolf in its dual Nature in a Yin/Yang-like design surrounded by the Magical Runes of the Vikings.
The Viking God Odin has several Shamanic Spirit Guides which include the Valkyries, Odin's Ravens and Odin's Wolves all of which can probably be classified as Fylgjur- supernatural beings which accompany one to their Fate or Fortune.
One of the most Magical is the 8-legged horse, Sleipnir, the swiftest Horse in the world. Sleipnir [meaning smooth or gliding] is no ordinary horse: Having 8 legs his speed is greater than any other horse, yet his ride is exceptionally smooth. It is believed that Sleipnir could be ridden over the Sea and through the Air.
Odin rides Sleipnir on his frequent journeys throughout the Nine Worlds, which are held in the branches and roots of the Viking World-Tree Yggdrasil. Amusingly, Sleipnir was the offspring of the Trickster God Loki who had once assumed the shape of a mare to help the other Viking Gods trick the Frost Giant Hrimthurs into building an immense wall around Asgard.
The All-Father God Odin is associated with Healing, Knowledge, Battle, Sorcery, Death, the Gallows, Royalty, Poetry, Frenzy, and the Magical Runic Alphabet, and is the husband of the Beautiful Goddess Frigg: Norse Goddess of Love and Fertility. Friday is named for her.
