Friday, they used to say TGIF which means thank Goddess it’s Friday. Vendredi in French. This day honors and is sacred to the goddess and the planet VENUS, Goddess of LOVE, beauty, relaionships and all things Feminine.
Venus is known by many names but in English she is associated with the Nordic/Germanic Freya or Frigg in Nordic mythology/spirituality. Frigg’s day = Friday. Her name, Proto-Germanic “Frija” which means FREE.
Old English “Friga”. Old Norse “Frigg”. Proto-Indo-European (PIE) “Priy-a” or Frida as in Frida Kahlo, name destiny there.

Eating fish on Friday’s, which Catholics borrowed from ancient, ancient customs is to venerate Venus, born from the sea, and women’s vagina’s smell like the sea. Venus is exalted in PISCES. Catholics are eating the Goddess by eating fish, a very sexual metaphor. Christ is associated with the AGE OF PISCES which is a feminine water sign.
Her name, Proto-Germanic “Frija” which means FREE.

Freya or Frigg Freya is famous for many things. Firstly is her fondness of love, sexuality, fertility, beauty, and fine material possessions. “Frigg,” meanwhile, comes from an ancient root that means “beloved.” Frigg’s name links her to love and desire, same as Venus, precisely the areas of life over which Freya presides over or more precisely “within which Freya manifests herself”.
The origin of the word FUCK
I love etymology. The Goddess Frigg, is a very sexual Goddess, like Venus. In one of the poems from The Edda’s for example, Loki accuses Freya (probably accurately) of having slept with all of the gods and elves, including her brother and even a slave in one report.
The word Friggin’ is an old English word for sexual intercourse, obviously comes from the Goddess. This word friggin developed into Fuck. “As euphemism for “to fuck” it dates from 1680s, earlier as “to masturbate”(1670s).” from a Thesaurus.
VOLVA or SHAMANESS
Freya is the archetype of the völva, a shamaness or shamanka, a professional practitioner of seidr, the most organized form of Norse magic. It was she who first brought these magical arts to the gods and to humans too. She uses falcon feathers to transform herself into this fierce sharp-eyed bird of prey. She also possesses a special necklace and used a sacred hallucinogenic wine or liquor which she used to prophesy with. Frigg knows the destiny of all beings, implying that she also has the power to alter them if she so chooses. Frigg’s weaving activities are likely an allusion to this role as well as Goddesses were considered to be the weavers of fate.
The word volva also echoes vulva, another echo of the sexuality of the Goddess she probably was a tantric priestess.
She was married to Odin. And the tales tell that when he is away she can be found weeping tears of red gold over his absence. Freya presides over the afterlife she chooses half of the warriors slain in battle to dwell there.
She could control and manipulate desire, wealth, and health. Frigg is a being whose knowledge, beauty and power are unequaled.
In one of many hypnosis sessions I had, years ago in Sedona in 1988. I had a very clear past life memory of being a Norse man who was in a battle on one of those beautiful Viking ships with the striped sails. I was killed in battle by a sword. I had always been drawn to those Viking ships and had drawn a pictire of one when I was in Grade 3, I remember that so clearly.
One of the ways to connect with past lives is to think about the cultures, symbols or places on the earth that you are attracted to. These are usually past life memories. I have had many past life memories being male and female in man cultures in the world. Egypt, Druid, English, French, Atlantic, Crete, Arabic, Chinese, Jewish, Native American, Tibetan, African, and probably more. Do you remember your past lives?
