Ratatoskr

Ratatoskr

This is the squirrel of Norse myth who runs up and down the world Ash tree, Yggdrasil, and communicates between the eagle who lives at the top and the serpent who lives at the base.  The eagle can be said to represent our higher self or the spiritual world while the dragon represents our id, primitive self, or the material world.  When Odin wanted to know what was going on with the people on earth he consulted Ratatoskr.
