Festival of Sleipnir

For members of Norse traditions, July 26 honors Sleipnir, the mythical horse of Odin that represents time and permits him to ride between the worlds. In Asatru, the eight-legged steed take Odin between the three worlds: from the upper one of the Gods (Asgard), through our own middle kingdom of Midgard, down into the underworld of shades (Utgard). As the Norse God of War and Poetry and Conductor of the Dead, Odin’s ability to transcent the planes of consciousness is what allows him the ability to oversee the fate of humans and Sleipnir serves as his magickal transportation.
