Freya is the most beloved of the Nordic Goddesses. She was especially revered by women. They called on her to assist with affairs of the heart. She is the daughter of Njord and the sister of Frey. It is said that She once had a husband named Od, but She somehow lost him and cried golden tears for him. Little is known of him so no one knows how he disappeared.
Freya rode on a chariot pulled by two black cats. She sometimes wears a magnificent cloak of falcon feathers as she flies down deep into the Underworld to seek information for her role as seer. And, according to Norse legend, after battles, She and Her warrior maidens would ride helmeted and armed into the battlegrounds to select the most handsome of the fallen warriors to dine with Her in Her banqueting hall.
The Norse dwarfs were noted for their fine necklasses made of amber, and Frey was determined to own one, but the only way She could do so was to sleep with each of them. So, although She found them distasteful, She slept Her way to one of the necklasses. Golden ambers are sacred to Her and are sometimes described as the tears she shed when she lost Od.
Freya was not only a warrior goddess, but was also revered as a goddess of sexual pleasure and was said to sleep with everyone--gods, mortals, and giants. However, She is sometimes viewed as another aspect of Frigg, a beloved wife or spouse, and as a mother. as well as a family and earth goddess. She was mistress of the home crafts and her symbols were the spindle and the distaff. Her sacred animals were the ram, spider and heron.
Take time to think about whether you are living your own life to the fullest or whether it has become a routine without imagination for you. Think about Freya's wonderful cape made of falcon feathers and her necklasses of amber. Decide on a piece of clothing or jewelry that speaks of freedom for yourself. Perhaps invite others to a freedom meal and share your emblams with wine and laughter.
