Freya’s origins in Celtic mythology are far more ancient than her mention in the 13th century Poetic Edda and other sagas from Iceland. she is a goddess of love and sex, beauty and sorcery, or war, death, and the afterlife. Like a true warrior she drives a chariot, hers pulled by cats, a wild boar at her side, wearing falcon feathers, symbolic of the recursions that bring together between sex and life and death. She is of noble lineage and extended relationships with the gods, the heroes and heroines, the patron of the battle hungry and battle weary. Her love is inimitable and stalwart but her temper unchecked and unimpeded by any force other than her own will. She surrenders to no one and willingly carries half our souls with her on the soul’s journeys through the heavens. Freya is a force to be reckoned with and the one will need when no other will suffice.
