Frigga is the wife of Odin , queen of the Aesir, and goddess of the sky. One of the Asynjur, she is a goddess of marriage, motherhood, fertility, love, household management, and domestic arts.

Her primary functions are as wife and mother, but these are not her only functions. She has the power of prophecy although she does not tell what she knows , and is the only one other than Odin who is permitted to sit on his high seat Hlidskjalf and look out over the universe. She also participates in the Wild Hunt along with her husband, Odin. Frigg's children are Baldr, Höðr her stepchildren are Hermóðr, Heimdall, Tyr, Vidar, Vali, and Skjoldr. Thor.

Though permitted to share the throne with Odin, Frigga spends most of her time in her house, Fensalir, spinning golden thread or weaving multicolored clouds. She often sends her followers to attend to the welfare of mortal wives, either taking vengeance on cruel husbands or assuring deserving worshipers of a blissful marriage. Her wishes often conflict with those of her warrior husband, and she will not hesitate to resort to trickery to get her own way.

Attributes

Frigga's hall in Asgard is Fensalir ("water falls") .

Duties of the Priesthood

Priests of Frigga must be married women. They are expected to watch over their home and set a good example for other wives by not letting their husbands stray too far out of the marital fold. If the husband of a priestess of Frigga practices the common Norse custom of taking a second wife, the priestess must divorce him immediately. They must also serve as midwives.

One of Odin’s several wives, Frigga (frig-ga) is primarily concerned with the household and married love. She is a stately, gracious, and bountiful woman often invoked during childbirth and by those wishing to conceive. Her attempt to protect Balder was one of the few times she acted to change the future she perceived. She has three handmaidens named Snotra (“Wisdom”), Syn (“Denial”), and Vor (so wise nothing can be hidden from her).

Dogma

Frigga’s cult focuses on birth and renewal. Her followers include ranchers, animal farmers, and married couples raising or conceiving children. They are equally comfortable in family homes and in
the fields. The cult teaches followers to pay attention to the signs and omens around them in order to prepare for the future. Accepting fate does not mean that followers passively wait for events to overwhelm them.

Clergy and Temples

Frigga’s clergy are simple folks rooted in the realities of daily life. They understand the pressures of feeding a family and the concerns associated with childbirth. They work to assist and support the faithful, and to provide comfort when needed. The clergy often serve double duty as local midwives for both people and livestock. If wild animals are ill or injured, Frigga’s clergy travel the wilderness seeking, and dealing with, the source.

Frigga’s temples are just as strong and defensible as those of other Asgardians, but they tend to be simpler and smaller. They contain collections of scrying instruments, private rooms where clergy and faithful can confer, and small stores of healing supplies.

Those in rural areas may have wild animal hospitals. Communities of settled Halflings may have their own temple, or may share one with neighboring communities.

Visitors to Frigga’s temples find the comfort of a warm, dry place to rest. Those truly in need find that the clerics’ courtesy and generosity are bounded only by a desire to see the supplicant become self-sufficient.
