the Tarot and Odin

This blog post is based on a note I wrote on Facebook, inspired by a dream a friend really ; )  It's mostly just for fun because everyone could use a little fun once in awhile.

If Odin and the major arcana of the tarot were co-ordinated, based on Odin's many bynames.

 The Fool - Vegtam, 'wanderer'
 The Magician - Runatyr, 'god of runes'
 The high Priestess - Oski, 'wish-giver'

 Justice - Fengr, 'catcher'
 The Hermit - Sangetall, 'finder of truth'
 The Wheel - Grimnir, 'hooded one'
 Strength - Throttr, 'strength'
 The Hanged Man - Hangatyr, 'god of the hanged'
