Too, "Frigga is depicted as tall and elegant, usually with a bunch of keys hanging from her belt. She often wears long robes that she can make light and dark at will...Frigga knows everyone's fate, but she will not disclose it and will not alter it. (The Book of Goddesses p 26)
"Woden's wife and the most powerful of the Goddesses, [Frigga's] primary domain seems to be the household. This domain of hers is not that of the household we think of today however, for Northern European women were fully their husband's equals and often the most vital decisions in household affairs were made by the woman. . . she is a figure of immense wisdom... Frigga plays the role of Asgardr's noble queen and as such bears the responsibility of any noble wife. This role meant advising her husband and making many decisions herself. It was usually women who played the role of fripwebba or 'peace-weaver' the one who makes and maintains peace. This one was very necessary in ancient Northern Europe, making Frige a very important Goddess in the elimination of strife." (www.ealdriht.org/frige.html)
December 20th and January 12th are sacred to Frigga and May 30th is known as Frigga's Day. Also, Fridays are named after her (Frigga's Day)
Her crafts are cooking, housekeeping, and ointments. (www.owlsdottir.com/goddess/earth/frigg.html[no longer active])
This is an anointing oil that has to do with claiming. It can mean claiming your womanhood, claiming your power, and intelligence, claiming abundance, health, or courage, perhaps claiming as your own Frigga's attributes.
"Choose an object that represents creativity to you. This could be a pen if you are a writer or poet, a paintbrush if you are an artist, or a cook book if you are a chef.
*Create sacred space. Prepare an aromatherapy anointing oil of Jasmine. (four drops of the essential oil in one teaspoon of jojoba or olive oil.) Place your chosen object in the area. *Anoint your first, second and fourth energy center.
*Speak out loud an affirmation or blessing of what you are claiming...
* Allow an image or feeling to come to you that represents the creative energy that you are claiming. Anoint your first, Second, and Fourth energy centers again, imagining that you are placing the image or feeling into your being, completely. Then affirm, 'this is true and complete now'
*close the sacred space and give thanks. (Aromatherapy and Anointing Oils by Joni Keim Loughran and Ruah Bull pp124-125)
Stand just inside your front door, facing into the house, and hold the key in front of you. Say: 'Frigga put your good fortune into this key so that it will always bless me.' Now walk around each room of your house, holding the key in front of you as you do so. Touch any special objects in your home with the key, such as your bed for the fortune of your relationship, your telephone for fortune with your friends, your computer for fortune with your work or study, and so on. When you have completed the ritual, hang the key from a hook over the front door, and always keep it clean and shiny." (The Book of the Goddess by Roni Jay p. 103)
Dig the soil carefully, and make sure it is free from weeds. Then sow the seeds in the shape of the Nordic Rune for protection (like a capital Y with a central upstroke continued from the top. so that the symbol has three prongs pointing upward) as you sprinkle the seeds on the ground say:' As these seeds grow tall and strong, protect us for the whole year long'
Look after your seedlings carefully, thinning and weeding any that grow outside the rune shape. Eventually the plants will grow to bushy to see the shape clearly, but it will still be there. AT the end of the fall, collect some of the seeds so that you can repeat the ritual the following year, but do not dig up the plants until you are ready to re-sow in the spring." (The Book of Goddesses Roni Jay p.104)
