Having seen various incorrect, incomplete and inaccurate lists of Norse gods circulating Tumblr, I have decided to write my own and also include common terminology alongside. I will also include other beings who exist within the old lore and modern traditions.
I have opted to include the names in Norwegian, with translations in parenthesise after, along with a brief summary of some of the associations given to some of those gods. Be aware that, as an overview, brevity is necessary here and the individuals should not be oversimplified to basic aspects in your practice!
Æser (Æsir, Male Gods)
Balder (Baldr, Baldur) - Light, purity, rebirth
Brage (Bragi) - Poetry, eloquence, wisdom and music
Delling (Dellingr) - The new day, dawn
Forsete (Forseti) - Justice and reconciliation
Frøy (Freyr) - Vaner, virility, fertility, the sacred religious position of royalty, prosperity, good weather and sunshine
Heimdall(Heimdallr) - The senses, premonition or foreknowledge
Hermod (Hermóðr) - Bravery, spirit, possibly a former mortal hero/king elevated to the Æsir
Hjuke (Hjúki) - Man, lunar activity, lunar phases, moon craters, brother of Bil (the Scandinavian children in the moon)
Hod(Höðr, Hodr) - The blind god, darkness, rebirth, second chances
She’s not one to stay
In one place for very long,
Her soul longs for the forests
And her heart belongs to the sea,
She’s this wild and untamed spirit,
One that’s never lost
And never meant to be found.
Similar to the wolf, the INFJ are quite mysterious. They are powerful and independent, but deeply value the affection of others. The INFJ do not open up to anyone, and remain hard to read for most people. Like the wolf they are remarkable in their presence, and have a way of reading situations to tell what the outcome will be before it actually happens. Wolves are pack animals and are generally monogamous creatures, finding one mate to spend their life with. Much like the INFJ, who values personal relationships and deep connections, the wolf has very close bonds. INFJ’s have a unique way of seeing and navigating the world, just like the wolf.
