Gems of the Goddess

FREYA


Love is in the air.  Yes, a very cliche saying, but one that Freya would agree with always.  She is the Norse goddess of love, and enjoys getting arrangements of flowers and dancing to music.  Along with the prettiness she was also a warrior goddess of the Valkyries.  On her missions as the leader,  she would ride on her chariot of two blue cats across the sky, creating what is now called “the northern lights.”  When she got to the war battle field, she would claim the souls of the bravest warriors who died, and bring them back with her to rest in perfect peace.  A very kind women, she would also ask their wives to come with her as well.

With her sparkling personality and charming toughness, the strawberry-blonde defiantly attracted the attention of many men.  One in particular named Od, who was the other leader in the Valkyries.  Freya fell hard for him, and the two were soon married.  Until one day Od disappeared, a mystery to everyone.  Freya was outraged and upset, so she cloaked herself in rave’s feathers and flew off to find him.  When she did she found him as a horrible sea monster, but she loved him so much nothing could get in her way.

Soon after she found him, he was suddenly killed, giving Freya no time to stop the incident.  Freya was blinded by anger and wanted to kill whoever murdered such a noble God.  Before that could happen Od was sent to Valhalla, where he could have occasional visits from Freya so the two would be together for eternity.

CONNECTING WITH FREYA

On a Friday (the day named after Freya herself) take a rose quartz crystal and recite an evocation to Freya of your choice, to be with you as you charge it, for love and luck throughout the year.  Carry the stone with you in a safe place and make sure to charge it every once and while.  Freya is very compassionate so always know she is never far from your heart.  Another note, she is also helpful if you are experiencing relationship problems.
