House of Yggdrasil

13-01-2014 14:23

House of Yggdrasil is a place for those who find a connection with the Norse power and magick. Those who are connected to Odin and his Lot.

In Norse mythology, Freya is a goddess of love and fertility. She is the most beautiful and propitious of the goddesses. She is the patron goddess of crops and birth, the symbol of sensuality who was called upon in matters of love.

She loves music, spring and flowers, and is particularly fond of the elves (fairies). Daughter of the god Njord, and the sister of Freyr, Freya is one of the foremost goddesses of the Vanir.

Freya married the mysterious god Od - probably another form of Odin - who disappeared. As she mourned for her lost husband, her tears changed into gold.

Freya's attributes are a precious necklace of the Brisings, which she obtained by sleeping with four dwarfs, a cloak (or skin) of bird feathers, which allows its wearer to change into a falcon, and a chariot pulled by two cats.

She owns Hildesvini - "battle boar" - which is actually her human lover Ottar in disguise. Freya lives in the beautiful palace Folkvang, which means "field of folk", a place where love songs are always played. Her hall is Sessrumnir.

She divides the slain warriors with Odin: one half go to her palace, while the other half goes to Valhalla. Women also go to her hall.
