Goddess of the Day: May 4

Freya - Norse Goddess of Love and War.  Freya is the maiden mistress, and described as the most beautiful of all Goddesses. No male - mortal or God - can resist Her. She is invoked for happiness in love and familial relations, as well as sex and sensuality issues. As the Queen of the Valkyries, She gathers the souls of the dead and slain warriors and escorts them to the afterlife.  Freya is the mistress of cats, and is thought to have inspired all poetry.  Her sacred day is Friday, and Her number thirteen.
