Welcome to Friggjasetr

You might think the name a little strange, so I’ll tell you how it came about. Being a Norwegian, I’m very much into our history, and in particular the Viking period.

 

A lot can be said about Frigg. In short she was the Norse Goddess of marriage, childbirth, motherhood, wisdom, household management and weaving and spinning. She was the Queen of Aesir and the only one permitted to sit on the high seat other than her husband Odin.

She is associated with constellation the Orion’s Belt which was known as the Frigg’s distaff upon which she winds the threads of fate and weaves the clouds.

She is the patron of women. She gives guidance and knowledge to maidens as they learn the skills required for adult life, inspiration and protection to mothers and housewives, and peace to the elderly.

As a goddess of fertility she is a patron of farmers.

She protects her worshipers by bending fate and her spinning represent the life force of mankind.

My first Icelandic sheep was also called Frigg, and she was everything that Frigg represent to me. So in honor of them both, it had to be Friggjasetr, which basically means Frigg’s place.

I enjoy my animals tremendously, and Friggjasetr is indeed my sanctuary. Here I’m completely at ease and peace, and can work with things that really mean something to me, and gives a lot back. To me this is heaven, if there is one, on earth.

 

Get a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy your stay. Feel free to comment and suggest to your heart’s desire.

 

An Invitation For Frigg

Hail to you also, fair lady,

Wife of Odin, great mother of many gods,

All-mother, grace us with your bounty and beauty,

Enstill in us the graciousness of hospitality,

The fierceness of familial love,

The warmth of the kindred, the strength of the warrior,

Through your hands, cunningly craft us good health,

Strong families and a strong community,

Weave us together with your distaff, wind us as one,

See us through the hard times, and good,

Blessing each day with your warm embrace,

Show us Frigg, to be silent, strong and forgiving,

Teach us patience and understanding in all things,

For our way of life is in your hands,

and through you may it be well lived!

Hail, Frigg! Hail the Queen of Asgard!
