Yggdrasil - the world tree/the world ash!
It is the world tree because it stands in the center of the world and connects all worlds with one another - the three levels: heaven, earth world and underworld. It is considered to be a pillar of the sky, since the branches of the Germanic tree support and hold the vault of the sky. Yggdrasil is also a symbol of life itself. The animals on the tree lose their vitality - since Yggdrasil's life is constantly renewed or because Yggdrasil is evergreen, the world tree is also a symbol of immortality.
The Stag - the king of the forest & goalkeeper in the otherworld!
In Celtic mythology, the deer was worshiped as a deity (Cernunnos) and considered a symbol of masculinity and vital energy. Furthermore, the noble deer represents courage, calm, respect, responsibility and wisdom.
Its majestic sight coupled with its gentle strength, in the peace and quiet of the forest makes each of us pause for a moment...
The signpost (Icelandic: Vegvísir) is a symbol of the northern mythology.
This symbol goes back to the Icelandic manuscript "Huld".
It is written:
"If that symbol is led, the bearer should not be lost in storm or wind, even if the way ahead is unknown."
It can be assumed that this does not refer exclusively to weather conditions, but-and this is how it is usually used today-that Vegvísir ultimately represents a "guide through life".
Thor was the son of Odin, the All-Father and the Supreme of all gods, and his wife Frigga.
The northern name for the Thorshammer was Mjöllnir, but he was also referred to as Mjölnir, Mjolnir, Mjölner, Mjølner or Mjölnar. With the Mjölnir Thor fought the enemies of the gods, especially the giants, who are a symbol of the chaotic and destructive forces of nature, to which humans were always at the mercy. So Thor made order in nature and kept his balance. A trait for which many people worshiped him.
If Thor threw his hammer, it flashed in the sky, the Mjölnir flew into the hand of Thor all by itself and the goat-drawn chariot Thors thundered the sky. It was not for nothing that Thor was also known as the Thunder God and was called by the South Germanic Donar what the Thunderer means.
Thor's Hammer - the Mjölnir - provides protection on all roads, gives strength and power to its wearer, and ensures order in life.
He stands for strength and durability, because that is the function of this object: to anchor the ship firmly to the ground, so that it does not drift.
Just as the anchor represents the hope for the sailor to return home safely and to trust the sea, this symbolism is transferred to the feelings. The anchor is the link that connects us to those we love, that holds us together with the people we value.
But back to the belief of the sailors, who were not only among the first in the Western world to use tattoos, but also used the anchor as a symbol of the tattoo on their skin, we can not ignore the power given to this object: protection and safety.
Anyone who wears an anchor will always be protected from adversity.
In addition to navigation, the compass has the following meanings:
The compass is used by travelers and a. for protection.
It is said to bring good luck - a help to achieve something in life.
The compass also means: home - the home as a goal in life, the compass reminds you that you can always go back home.
Belief in God - higher power that guides fate.
Clear goals - Expresses that you know exactly where you want to go in life.
Love of the sea - references to the coast and the ocean.
The wings of the Archangel Michael - the leader of the heavenly hosts - stand for protection from all dangers, strength, courage and strength.
There is a symbolism behind the Irish cross. In the Celtic and in various other traditions and cultures, the four arms of the cross are taken as the four elements (fire, water, earth, air). The arms can also be viewed as the four directions of a compass (north, south, east, west). Four parts of the human being can also be interpreted in a Celtic cross (mind, body, soul, heart). In Celtic symbolism, the number four stands for the stable, for the everlasting.
Great importance is attached to the mysterious symbol of Ireland on the Emerald Isle. The Irish crosses were placed at the fork in the road and were intended as a blessing for travelers.
It is meant to stop in memory and serve as a guardian.
Even the Nordic god Odin is said to have traveled through the world of the living and the dead thanks to the symbols.
In the interpretation of the Triskele, the "magic number" THREE, which is particularly important in Celtic mythology, plays a major role. So different connections and sequences can be assumed:
