Though many things are fated such as our past life karma and our station of birth, etc. The wyrd is the "HOPE", in the fatalistic theology of Norse and Celtic paganism and mythology. It is the one truth, that the validity of all predictions is always in the hands of those who are willing to make change. When things are wyrd there are changes afoot. Expect Thor's hammer when the fates decide on that which is wyrd. Wyrd is the root of the modern word weird.
