Homemaking with Hulda

Updated: Sep 21, 2023

My main focus this year has been on home and family magic under the tutelage of the goddess, Hulda, and you may be wondering just who she is. Hulda, also known as Holda or Frau Holle, is a Germanic goddess from Germanic folklore and mythology. She is associated with various aspects of nature, fertility, and the cycle of life. Here are some key aspects and associations of Hulda: 1. Goddess of Nature and Fertility: Hulda is often depicted as a goddess of nature, fertility, and agriculture. She is associated with the changing seasons, particularly the transition from winter to spring. She is believed to have the power to bring fertility to the land and ensure a bountiful harvest.


2. Guardian of Women and Children: Hulda is also seen as a protector and guardian of women and children. She is associated with childbirth and is believed to watch over pregnant women and newborns. It is said that she blesses newborns with good health and fortune.

3. Connection to the Underworld: Hulda is sometimes associated with the realm of the dead or the underworld. In Germanic folklore, she is believed to lead a procession of souls to the afterlife during the winter months. She is often depicted as an old woman with a key, symbolizing her role as a gatekeeper between the realms. 4. Symbol of Wisdom and Domestic Skills: Hulda is often portrayed as a wise and knowledgeable figure. She is associated with domestic skills such as spinning, weaving, and housekeeping. To me, she is very much a mixture of Hekate and the Virgin Mary, both of whom I have strong connections with. It's important to note that Hulda's mythology, associations and her significance may vary depending on cultural and historical contexts.
