Meaning of the Valknut / Walknut Triad of Odin

The Valknut, or, the Triad of Odin and the nine worlds is a symbol with three interlocking triangles each representing a force. Arising, being and destruction. 3 x 3 = 9 aspects.
Arising: Voden, Vile and Ve slay the Ymer and create the world from his body.
Being: Urd, Vervandi and Skuld, the Norns, weave the threads of time and destiny. They represent the past, present and future. The Runes themselves represent different aspects of the web (life), which the person can use to influence their destiny.
Destruction: Hel, Jörmungandr and Fenriz are the destructive forces which bring forth transformation through rebirth and change by invoking Ragnarök - the end of the world.
Below you see a nifty little chart I made for ease of understanding how the triad is comprised.

The complexity is obvious and could leave us with even more questions than we had before...

But to ease your curiosity, and mine, I have created a beautiful rendition of the Vaklnut into a pendant featuring all 24 Elder Futhark Runes in sequence as shown below.
