Dryad Designs Freya Statue
by Paul Borda, the original was carved from caramel alabaster. I have one sitting on my home altar.
Freya, Norse Goddess of Love, Fertility, Cats and Seeresses, is the most beautiful of the Norse Gods. Queen of the Vanir and Commander of the Valkyries, she flies using her hawk wing cloak and protects love relationships. Freya possesses a chariot drawn by two giant cats and has a love of jewelry and ornament. Her most precious possession is the necklace Brisingamen which she won from the dwarves. In ancient times, amber was often referred to as “Freya’s tears”.
It’s Friday, and I’m looking forward to a fun-filled Saturday morning weeding and planting at the Eye of Horus Labyrinth Garden. I hope to get up early and do a little work in my own sandbox as well. Getting my hands dirty and spending time in nature keeps me grounded. It works wonders for my mood, and because it rained all last weekend, I’m extra excited to make the most of my time this weekend.
Yesterday I caught a wiff of a new mood moving across the Universe. It was one of optimism and excitement, of exploring new ideas, music, art, and spirituality grounded in the earth but soaring through the sky. We are looking toward a new Era embracing Kindness, exploring relationships with each other and the Earth with a greater understanding of One-ness. We are all part of the cosmic whole and people are catching on. Can you feel the gentle caress of a breeze of change coming? I do. Happy Freya’s Day!
