A Nordic-Germanic goddess of fertility, prosperity, love and beauty, whose sacred symbols and familiars were cats. She is represented in myth as a beautiful woman riding in a golden chariot drawn by cats. In the darkness of night, Freya was said to roam in the form of a she-goat or fly through the heavens in the form of a falcon. She was also a queen of the Underworld, and both the sister and consort of the god Frey. There exists a strong connection between Freya and the arts of Witchcraft and divination. As a Neo-Pagan goddess, she is worshipped by many who follow the Teutonic or Nordic traditions of Wicca.
