Nordic Constellations?

Nordic stars

Theoretical map of Norse constellations. There is some evidence in the Eddas of stars being associated with beings: Thiazi’s eyes, Aurvandil’s toe, Frigg’s (or Freyja’s) distaff, etc. While evidence is scarce, it’s nice to think that the Greeks and Romans weren’t the only ones looking to the stars for inspiration, guidance, and insight.
