Freyja- The Goddess of Love & War
In Norse mythology, Freyja (Old Norse for "The Lady") is a goddess associated with war, death, love, sex, beauty, fertility, wealth, gold, and seidr. Seidr was a type of magic practiced in Norse society. She is a deity of earth and water.
The Scandinavian goddess of fertility and abundance. Freyja could be called upon for assistance in childbirth and conception, to aid with marital problems, or to bestow fruitfulness upon the land and sea.
She rides a chariot pulled by two cats and is accompanied by the boar Hildisvíni.
Freyja owned a magical cloak of hawk's feathers, which allowed her to transform at will. She assists other deities by allowing them to use her feathered cloak.
Freyja rules over her heavenly field, FÓlkvangr, where she receives half of those who die in battle. The other half go to the god Odin's hall, Valhalla.
She is the owner of the necklace Brísingamen, (brísingr a is a poetic term for "fire" or "amber"). The name is an Old Norse compound brísinga-men whose second element is men "(ornamental) neck-ring (of precious metal), torc".
She also practiced divination. 🔮
The cat is her sacred symbol.🐈
Invoke the powers of Freyja by calling upon her for protection, your love life or matters of fertility.
You may want to give Freyja an offering on your alter, thanking her for protection or help with your love life. This can be anything from food, wine, flowers or crystals, a spell, chant or poem. Anything you feel you would like to give to her.
I've chosen these particular crystals, herbs and flowers for YOU to honor Freya as they are all associated with this beautiful Norse Goddess.
Pink Tourmaline (Rubellite)- Pink Tourmaline can facilitate great emotional healing that takes place during and after a breakup. Helping to gain the courage to overcome issues such as abusive relationships and negative work situations. It is excellent for connecting with the Earth on an emotional level.Tourmaline is a shaman stone, bringing you protection during rituals. It can be used for scrying and was traditionally used to point the way ahead. It is one of the strongest stones for alleviating stress and emotional imbalances.
Labradorite- A gemstone of ancient legends and mystical lore, connecting us to the spirit world. Labradorite is the bringer of light. Just as Freya could see the Northern Lights believed to be "frozen fire" from her kingdom in Scandinavia, we can envision this in the iridescence of the reflected light that labradorite brings and passes this esoteric knowledge to us.
