Daughter of Saga

In the Freya Aswynn interview linked here (, Freya said something to the effect that her life mirrors a character in one of the sagas (a daughter of Seigfried) in an manner similar to a fractal and then suggested further that the lives of others may do the same. This got me to thinking, that given my "cosmic" preincarnate memory is so essential to who I am (independent of time and space as it exists in physical reality), and that Saga (Frigg) is the goddess who bestows the gift of Cosmic Memory, that perhaps I too am a "fractal" (of sorts) of Saga as Freya considers herself a "fractal" of Seigfried's daughter. It makes sense to me, especially in light of the fact that all of us, as descendents of our deities, are "fractals" of our deities in the sense of being incarnate manifestations of them to some degree. Taking all of this together, while Hel is my patroness, I think I personally am, as an ever-unfolding individual of fate, most closely akin to the essence of Saga. So, in terms of identifying my spiritual root, I think my first root of consciousness aligns with Saga - almost like I am Saga and my best friend in the Cosmos is Hel.

lore on her is in Grímnismal, Helgakvitha Hundingsbana I in the poetic Edda and Gylfaginning and Skaldskaparmal in the prose Edda

Saga's name means "seeing one."

Dare to be true to yourself.
