Creating a Powerful Altar for Freya (a Quick DIY Guide)

Updated on:

/

Written by: Tina Caro

Freya is one of the most popular goddesses of mythology. She is so powerful, so iconic, and connecting with her can be beneficial to both your magickal practice and your inner spiritual journey!

If you want to establish a bond with Freya and get started easily and effectively, creating an altar is a great first step!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Creating a powerful altar for Freya, the Norse goddess of love and beauty, involves a deliberate and respectful process.

Begin by researching her attributes and symbolism.

Choose an appropriate location and altar cloth in colors associated with love and beauty.

Incorporate symbols, images, candles, offerings, crystals, and personal items that resonate with her energies.

Regularly tend to the altar, offer prayers, and meditate to establish a sacred space for honoring Freya, seeking her guidance, and enhancing your spiritual connection to her nurturing and passionate essence.

Why should I create an altar for Freya?

Freya is the goddess of heaven, love, fertility, proper housekeeping, marriage, domestic arts, and above all of motherhood. An altar for Freya can become your sacred place to set intentions for your love or fertility spells. It can also become a sacred corner for meditation, prayer, and where you come to seek guidance from her.

When should I create it?

You should create the altar on a Friday as she is connected with this specific day of the week! Plus, Fridays are perfect for casting love and fertility spells as well!

Otherwise, if you don’t want to use the energy of the days of the week, you can create the altar right before casting a spell or when you feel like you need her to help you deal with emotions related to love and fertility. She has some motherly energy deep inside of her and when the motherly instincts show up in yourself as well, that means you are ready to create a bond with her.

How to create an altar for Freya? A step-by-step guide

Find a place you like: First and foremost, you must find a place you feel comfortable in. This place should be peaceful and calm, perhaps somewhere you like to destress after a hard day. It can be anywhere you like as long as you feel it’s the right place to create it.

Bring some special elements connected with Freya!

Down below you are going to find a list of possible elements you can use to customize the altar and make it perfect for Freya. They are only ideas and you can always bring your own additional objects that remind you of her.

Use incenses to make the place even more sacred and connected with Freya. You can rely on incenses for love or incenses for fertility to enhance the kind of energy and the type of blessings you would like Freya to grant you!

 

Lighting a green, red, or a black candle is another great way to start creating your altar as these colors are all deeply intertwined with her energy as a goddess and her powers.

You can even add a few runes if you are into them. You can learn all about the runes associated with Freya in this article!

Main elements of the altar for Freya

  • A figure or a picture of Freya: choose the one you really like! It should represent the vision you have of Freya as closely as possible.
  • A brisingamen necklace, a spindle, and some keys are a few items you might want to place on your altar as they are all symbols of Freya, her story and her energy.
  • You can also add figurines or pictures of cats to your altar as cats are sacred to Freya and she would deeply appreciate their presence!

What should I do next?

You should light the candle you’ve chosen for the altar for Freya every time you go to work with her energy while casting spells or performing rituals.

Let this altar become the perfect place for you for moments of contemplation as well. If you cast a love or a fertility spell, you might want to spend a little time by your altar every day to say a prayer in Freya’s name to let your intention manifest faster!

How to store the elements when you’re done?

Most of the elements used for the altar are material ones. The best way to store them is to put them in boxes so you can use them again in the future. The image of Freya can be used as a talisman and you can also keep the runes associated with Freya with you, leaving them in a pocket, in a purse, or even using them as a piece of jewelry.

It’s a great way to let Freya’s energy protect you and guide you through your life!
