falcons & felines

Freya (Freia) is a Norse goddess of the Vanir (nature deities).  She is the goddess of love and beauty, protectress of the world, and patron saint of wise and powerful magical women.

She can be found on the fields of war receiving the slain in a chariot driven by two blue cats.  She is wise in magic and wears a cloak of feathers which allows her to transform into a falcon.  Freya rules over the plants, earth and animals of the forest and can be called upon to assist in affairs of love.
She wears a finely woven golden amber necklace whose power cannot be resisted, called Brisingamen which was purchased from dwarves.

Friday is the day of Freya (called by the Romans, Venus).

Freia is asteroid 76, check her out in your natal chart and apply the above.

The Dreaming: “Ere the World Crumbles…”
Lyrics by Knut Avenstroup
sung by Helene Bøksle

Haugen Athr veröld Athr veröld steypisk mun engi mathr öthrum thyrna Knáttu vanir vígspá völlu sporna Skildir ro klofnir fyllisk fjörvi feigra manna

(‘Ere the world ‘Ere the world falls nor ever shall men each other spare And the field by the warlike Wanes was trodden Shields are sundered Drains the life-force of doomed men)

Lyrics above are taken from the Elder Edda, a collection of Old Norse poems written in the 13th century – primarily preserved in the Icelandic mediaeval manuscript Codex Regius (latin for Royal Book).

The goddess Freya (the Lady) and the God Frey (the Lord) rule the first aett of Runes, which represent the first stage of creation.

I pulled 2 runes to get a vibe on the eclipse energies.  Intent to gain insight and best outcome for all my readers…

Left/Solar = Dagaz: Day or Dawn.
breakthrough and awakening, clarity. embark on an  enterprise.

Right/Lunar = Perthro: gambling cup, a mystery.
a secret matter, hidden things and occult abilities, unexpected rewards

Since that was – well, obvious – I pulled another for clarity of direction…

Kenaz: a beacon or torch.
vision, revelation, knowledge creativity harnessed power

blessed be ~ happy eclipses ~
