Frau Holda, as she is sometimes called, is a Germanic Goddess who is associated with the protection of agriculture, and is also known as the Mistress of the Wild Hunt. She has very much in common with the Scandinavian Goddess Jord and the Germanic Goddess Nerthus, in her role as Mother Earth.
Holda also has much in common with Mother Frigga, in that she is known as the protector of women's crafts, such as spinning, and is also known for her love and protection of children. Finally, she is also the personification of Mother Nature in that it is said that snow, fog, thunder and rain can be attributed to her actions.
