Freya, wife to Odin, (Freyja in Old Norse meaning Lady) is a Goddess of the Vanir deities who is highly honored among the Aesir Gods and known for her beautiful gold necklace, Brísingamen. Freya is the Goddess of love, fertility, and beauty. Freya is a volva, a professional seidr (Norse magic and shamanism), and introduced this art to the Aesir Gods and humans.
A Valkyrie, "chooser of the slain" in Old Norse, is one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. Half of the selected who die in battle are taken to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. The other half of those who die in battle go to the goddess Freyja's afterlife field Fólkvangr.
The Vegvisir , “That Which Shows the Way”, pronounced “VEGG-vee-seer”. “If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.”
