Friday 13th is Goddess Freyja’s day. @wildwitchofthewest shares her story + ways to embody Fretja in your life!
Few goddesses honor the archetypes of both lover and warrior quite like the goddess Freyja, also spelled Freya and Freia. This solar feminine deity comes from the Norse word for “lady” and is often closely associated with Frigg, though the jury is still out on if they are the same goddess or not.
However, we have both of them to thank for our word Friday, as well as friggatriskaidekaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th) In Norse traditions, people called on Freyja to invite more love into their lives, and for them, love and war weren’t so separate.
Freyja was said to be the most beautiful and loving of the goddesses, though not just a pretty face, she was also the queen of the battle-maidens called Valkyries. She drove a chariot driven by cats and in northern areas of the world is credited with bringing magic to humankind.
Freia, named after Freyja, was the 76th asteroid discovered in 1862, in Denmark. The placement of Freia in our charts reminds us where we can harness our unique solar power as love in our own lives, especially as we move into Leo season on July 22.
Currently, the heavenly body hangs out at 2 degrees Pisces in retrograde until October 14 of this year. To find Freyja/Freya in your chart, go to astro.com, enter your birth information, choose “Extended Chart Selection,” scroll down to “Additional Selection,” and type in the number 76.
Some everyday ways to connect with the cat queen’s fierce love and her asteroid include:
Style // Gold jewelry or gold-toned clothing or pink to evoke the inner lover, or wearing a tiara as much as possible would also work.
Workout // Kickboxing or a boot camp class, or even doing nothing at all…Freyja is a fighter and a lover who could lounge.
Home // Add gold accents to your space. If you have a cat (mine is actually named Freyja), perhaps even spoil them a bit more each Friday 13th!
Listen // Powerful lover-warriors like Queen Bey and Lady Gaga.
