The Norse Goddess of love, fertility, sexuality, lust, beauty, magic, war, and death. The counterpart to her twin brother Frey
. Her name means “Lady”. Freyja is the most beautiful of all the Goddesses, women pray to her for help in all matters. Freyja teaches women to love who they are and for men to love them for it.
She is said to have wept tears of gold when searching for her lost husband, Od. After being abandoned by her husband Freyja becomes the most promiscuous of all Goddesses, having love affairs with gods, humans, elves, and dwarves. Her necklace is named Brisingamen
, (whose power cannot be resisted) which he obtained from four dwarves by spending the night with them. She also has a cloak of falcon feathers and a chariot drawn by two cats (think lynx not house cats).
Freyja is quite independent by nature, being chief of the Valkyrie
she gets half of all those who fall in battle (the other half go to Odin.). Not being married, she is also a single mother to Hnoss
In ancient times the constellation we today know as Orion, was known as “Freyja’s Gown”, and the sword belt was called “Freyja’s Girdle”.
Freyja is not the same Goddess as Frigga, so do not confuse them.
