Hugin and Munin (Norse, “thought” and “memory”) are the twin ravens of Norse mythology. They are the servants of the Norse All-Father, Odin. According to legend, they are sent out each morning and report back to Odin each evening on the happenings of the world.
Wyrd is Anglo-Saxon in origin and means ‘to become’ or ‘to turn’; literally meaning ‘that which has turned’ or ‘that which has become’. Wyrd can be thought of as becoming something new, on a new path, while still being able to see that which has passed before back to the beginning and incorporating that into the present. Wyrd is like a giant web, each decision or action is a string tied to your past and present, eventually shaping the way to your future becoming the whole picture of a web. Wyrd is the path one travels in life. Everything that you have been, are now or ever will be.
