NORNAS – As três senhoras do destino humanos, chamavam-se Urd, Werdandi e Skuld. Conhecedoras dos preceitos ancestrais, dos costumes antigos e sabiam, assim, que destino de vida dar a cada um. Não só os humanos, mas os deuses estavam submetidos aos seus poderes. A cada uma delas era atribuído um conhecimento: a Urd o passado, a Werdandi o presente e a Skuld o futuro.
Hecate - The Greek goddess Hecate reminds us of the importance of change, helping us to release the past, especially those things that are hindering our growth, and to accept change and transitions. She sometimes asks us to let go of what is familiar, safe, and secure and to travel to the scary places of the soul.
The Irish god, Nechtan, possessed the secret "Well of Wisdom," the holy well of knowledge. Only he was allowed to draw water from it. Nine hazel trees (associated w/ wisdom) grew around the well. Five salmon lived in the well ate the fallen nuts. The remaining husks floated down 5 streams which issued from the well, each representing one of the 5 senses from which all knowledge was acquired.
