Visualising Fate - the whispers of the Norns
From the Norse Mythology:
Under the evergreen ash Yggdrasil, the big World-tree that symbolises the cosmos, live three sisters; The Norns of Fate. Their names are Urd, the oldest one (meaning the past, that which was), Verdande (meaning the present, what is happening/in the making), and Skuld, the youngest (meaning the future, what shall be/the unknown). They sit at the foot of Yggdrasil spinning and weaving their golden threads which are the fates of all beings, divine and mortal.
