Who is Freyja?

A well loved Norse Goddess whose name means “The Lady.“ Her realms of influence include: Love, Sexuality and Lust, Beauty, Fertility, Magic (in particular relating to a type of Magic called “Seiðr” Magic), War/Warriors/Warriorship and Death. She is usually found depicted in very sensual poses, often appearing in the nude. She is also known as the Queen of the Valkyries, getting the first choice of the slain in battle. Her hall or dwelling place is named Sessrumnir (Summer Hall) and in all likelihood serves the same function as Odin’s Valhalla.
