An ever-changing life inspired by the pneuma


Freya! She is here

Quiz time again. I did the below “Which Norse deity are you?” test, and I got Freya. Interesting, though not surprising.

Lately, Freya has made herself known in my life through my dreams. For awhile, I was dreaming about cats – lots of them – and not just because I’m a cat lover. One of my dreams was actually about feral cats invading my home, to the displeasure of my three domestic kitties. First, I thought maybe it was Hekate trying to get my attention because at first I dreamed of black cats. Later, it was just any type of cats. After some research, I found out Freya has a chariot drawn by two cats (often depicted as tabbies, but some claim it was black cats). Too cool!

Freya is also the leader of the Valkyries, “choosers of the slain”. The Valkyries fly over a battle field similar to how Morrigan would in her crow shape. Freya is also known to be a little sexual promiscuous (like Morrigan, who slept with Dagda just because), having slept with four dwarves in order to obtain the Brisingamen necklace. Freya is thought by some to be the same as Frigga, though just a different aspect of Frigga. Freya and Frigga together are thought to have been derived from an earlier earth-mother goddess figure just like Morrigan, in her triple aspect (Badb, Maeve, Morrigan or possibly Anu, Badb, Morrigan), is thought to have been derived from an earth-mother goddess figure. Both Freya and Morrigan are depicted as young, beautiful, strong, female warriors not to be toyed with.

The similarities between Freya and Morrigan are many; thus, it is not surprising that I have an affinity with Freya as well.

For some more information on Freya (though not extensive):
