30 days: Frigg 101

An introduction into the deity of discussion: Frigg

Frigg is the Allmother, wife of Odin, the Allfather. She is mother to Balder and Hod, step-mother to Thor.

Frigg is the weaver of the clouds, sitting at her spinning wheel and pulling misty threads into puffs that line the sky.

Some sources indicate that when she has deemed that the clouds have accumulated too heavily, she sweeps them away on the broom she rides upon before sitting back at her spinning wheel and spinning again.

She is a seer, a volva, who knows that fate of all, but shares this knowledge with no one.

She is the keeper of women, wives, and children; sacred to the household and the hearth. She is typically seen as manifested in the realm of motherly and wifely, though not romanitic, love. Though, as any woman knows, it is rather difficult to be a wife and nearly impossible to be a mother without engaging in romantic love. And it would not make for a good, healthy marriage, to forgo the romantic love. Alas, Frigg is manifested in love experienced by the feminine experience. (I’ll touch more on this later).
