Freya


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.
