When you see Odin it means you need to be patient because more information is needed before moving forward.
Patience seems to be the main keyword here. Sit back and relax. Find a way to be open to finding a solution that comes in the form of a sign or a gift. Listen to what others have to say on the topic but also listen to your own guidance, for you will have the final say.
Impatience can only cause you to stress which can be harmful if not monitored. Try to relax and take a more philosophical stance to ease the tension.

He hangs from the tree,
Between life and death,
Waiting upon the wyrd,
To reveal itself,
Odin, who was referred to as the Allfather because of his position as a protector and leader of both gods and humans, was perhaps the most honoured of all Norse gods. He was considered the wisest of all gods, and the most well known of his children is the thunder god Thor.
Odin is the key figure in the Viking mythos. He features in many wonderful stories, most of which have as their theme the pain one must undergo to obtain wisdom. Odin is often depicted with only one eye, as he exchanged the other for a sip of the Well of Wisdom when he was on his way to the world tree, Yggdrasil. This single sip enabled him to see far, know much and listen to all the stories of the world, which made him wise indeed.
Odin had a subtle duality. He was a god of bloody war and death and a god of storytelling and intelligence. Warriors honoured him before a battle, for they hoped to enter his hall, Valhalla – if they died in combat. Fathers and teachers honoured him too, in hopes that they would be wise and protective of the children in their care.
Those who wished to glimpse their future or gather wisdom through an oracle could use the oracular tool he discovered, the runes, which were symbols most often carved on bone, wood or stone. To obtain the runes from the Well of Wyrd, Odin hung himself from a branch of Yggdrasil, pierced himself with his spear, and peered down into the shadowy waters below, remaining there for nine nights, until the runes revealed themselves to him.
Odin teaches us that education and listening to the wisdom of others is invaluable to own growth and development. The more we know about a situation the better we can assess it, therefore research is rarely wasted. Odin also suggests we consult those with direct experience of topic on which we seek information. If we need guidance in any situation, we can turn to Odin, he can guide us towards the answers that we need. ~ Stacey Demarco
