Freyja is many things in Norse/Germanic mythology. She's pretty much the top female goddess and is a Goddess of Vanaheim but is also an honorary member of Aesir and thought also to be another name for the wife to Odin, a.k.a. Frigg.

"Freya is famous for her fondness of love, fertility, beauty, and fine material possessions..."
but she is also famous for her role as the main archetype of the Völva and a practioner of Seidr which was their name for seeress, sorceress and/or witch and the magic they practiced, especially regarding fate and the ability to "reweave" fate, thus her direct connection to the Norse/Germanic runes. Her Rune is F or Fehu and relates to fertility, material possions, weath and health. She is also seen and represented by the Falcon and is said to shift into a falcon when so desired.

Vanaheim was both a psychological state and a physical place in their mythos and pretty much was equal to the wild and all of nature, untamed by humans. Things were regarding as inside the gate or outside the gate... "innangard and utangard". Vanaheim is the place outside the gate.

For more great infor see these two well written but wonderfully explained @ norse-mythology.org/cosmology/… and norse-mythology.org/gods-and-c…
