Yggdrasil - The World Tree:
In Norse Mythology, the world tree is the center and connector of the cosmos. It is an ash tree whose branches and roots interact with the realms.
Features and events regarding Yggdrasil are discussed in Gylfaginning and Skáldskaparmál (of the Prose Edda), and in Grímnismál and Völuspá (of the Poetic Edda).
It is in this tree that Odin, in Hávamál, claims he sacrificed “himself to himself,” hanging for nine days and nights until he finds the runes. Some believe the name Yggdrasil itself translates linguistically to “Odin’s horse” because of this story.
Yggdrasil’s roots drink from the realms of Hel (place of the dead), Jǫtunheimr (land of the giants), and Ásgarðr (home of the gods).
Near Ásgarðr, it is nourished by the well of Urðr, who is one of the fate-weaving norns that determines the partial destiny of all.
Some of Yggdrasil’s inhabitants include the infamous dragon Níðhöggr, who gnaws at the roots near Hel, and a hawk/eagle Veðrfölnir, who resides at the top of the branches. A mischievous squirrel, Ratatöskr, runs up and down the tree delivering slanderous words to provoke a fight between them.
There are also four red-deer stags that eat the leaves and chew the branches of Yggdrasil. They are named Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr, Duraþrór. Some claim that these represent the four seasons, or simply the wind.
At the sound of Gjallarhorn, Yggdrasil will burn and fall as the events of Ragnarök begin.
