Freya, goddess of youth and love




“Freya, goddess of youth and love, whose apples keep the immortals eternally young. Freya is a symbol of the qualities that men sacrifice to acquire power and fame.” ~Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, The Ring of Power: The Abandoned Child, the Authoritarian Father, and the Disempowered Feminine
