Freyja is the Norse Goddess of magic, sexuality and battle. She rides a chariot pulled by two cats -- thought to be the ancestors of the Norwegian Forest Cat -- which befits Her title as "Mistress of Cats". As Goddess of battle, She is leader of the Valkyries, the women who roam the battlefields and pick the most heroic from those slain and take them to Valhalla. As a warrior-woman, Freyja carries a helm, shield, spear and weaponry. Friday is named in her honor.
