It is from the Nordic Goddess of love and fertility’s name that we derived the name “Friday”. According to Nordic myth she was also the Warrior Goddess who was hostess to fallen war heroes in her great hall.
Freya loves all things that give pleasure, she indulges in love, romance and lovemaking – always walking in harmony and beauty. Her power brings men and women together to create new life, and she is the gentle goddess who ends life in order to perpetuate the circle of life with love and trust.
Her Modern Energy
Freya represents passion: Passion in love, Passion in war, Passion for the things in life that bring us pure joy. She lets us be moved to tears with gratitude for what we see around us, her gifts are tenderness, grace, compassion, delight and laughter.

Reconnect With Your Inner Freya
If you are feeling that you are living your life without intention, stop for a while. Devote this Friday to her namesake, and spend at least a minute with your eyes closed, listening to your breathing. Notice every noise around you and every smell that comes your way.
Mentally list five things you are grateful for. Build on this list to think about your passions . Have you been ignoring them lately? Well, Friday is the day – get back to your passion, and get your passion back!
What Would Freya Do?
… Patroness of war, this Nordic Goddess ends life in order to perpetuate it. As such, all is fair in love and war. If she were in your situation she would go on the war path in order to reap the benefits in the great hall of Valhalla afterwards. In her aspect as goddess of love, she would pursue any elements that bring her happiness – passion, grace, compassion, joy and laughter.
