      It was hiding in there under a Latinized version of her name:

      "Frigga's Distaff. The last of the constellations which may belong to
      the Viking Age is Friggjarrokkr, Frigga's Distaff, the three bright
      stars that make up the belt of the constellation we know today as
      Orion the Hunter. Grimm cites this name from the Swedish Friggerock,
      and also Frejerock or Fröjas rock (Teutonic Religion ch. 13 and ch. 22)."
