Freya is a goddess of prophecy, love, and war. She is the patron of marriage as well as marriage vows and oaths. She reigns over the dead in their afterlife and controls most who travel over the nine worlds.
In order to honor her, some folks would make an offering to her with these herbs, flowers, and crystals on their altar or during a sabbat, a festival celebrated by those following Norse paganism.
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.🐈
