Goddess of the Week: Freya

Lilli is ready to dip her toes in the relationship pool; she needs a goddess of love. I am giving her the Norse goddess Freya.

Freya was basically your early Match.com. People would ask her for a lover, and she would see what she could find. She herself was loved by many, including men, giants, and dwarves, which is a good reminder that when looking for a relationship one might want to cast a wide net. Just because someone seems totally different from you doesn't mean you might not have some interesting things in common.

Freya had awesome transportation. She got to ride around on a gold-bristled boar or on a chariot pulled by two cats. This is also instructional. Freya's hot rides got her where she was going in style. If your path to love is taking you down too many pothole-ridden roads, you must ask yourself: what's with all the old Yugos blocking your path? Better to ride in comfort alone than be stuck with a balding pig.

Channel this goddess: When you are ready for a relationship or when buying a new car. Aren't they pretty much the same thing anyway?

Need a goddess? I got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a week or two and see what you got. It's fun! It's free! It's better than getting boar hair in your unmentionables.

When ready for a relationship or a new car! You are a hoot. It would be good to avoid those yugos in either case.

I'm just wondering how many women knew about the goddess Freya before your article today?

I have been a fan of Freya for many years now Cafe Pasadena.

Lilli, if the "other" doesn't behave you can always throw him or her under the chariot! But with Freya's help I think this relationship will be just great, long lasting and happy.

I have a good feeling about this one for Lilli.

Good advice for Lilli. Who knew cats would pull a chariot??

Some of the Norse gods are a nasty piece of work, but Freya knows how to party.

Haha - ok, well, I have been driving the same ol' car for years now...maybe it is time to think about moving on. I remember getting a new car when Carrie was little and she cried - actually she was heartbroken - because she LOVED the old car!

I have definitely ridden over too many potholes on the path to love lately. Maybe Lilli won't mind if I borrow Freya for some much-needed consultation.
