Nott is the daughter of Narfi, a Jotun. It is said that her lineage gave her a complexion that was swarthy and dark. First she married Naglfari, Next she married Anar, and from him she had the daughter Jord. Finally she married Dellingr who was of the Aesir. Their son was Dagr.
Odin it says gave Nott the horse Hrimfaxi, ( Frost - Mane ), and it is from this horses drippings, from its bit, that causes the dew.
Do I see Nott as a physical God..... no. I see her as the essence of the night. An invisible entity hidden so well within the darkness that not even the stars can illuminate her. Some see the night as a frightful thing to be feared, but I see Nott (night) as a dark beautiful
but elusive Goddess who rules the night until she turns it over to her husband Dellingr who in turn hands it over to their son Dagr.
Yes even the night can be beautiful !
All Hail Nott !
On the 6th of every month I honor the Goddess Sif , who is also known as the golden haired Goddess. Sif , as we all know, is the wife of Thor, and has two children, Thrudr by Thor, and Ullr by an unknown male. She is also called by the names The Rival of Jarnsaxa and The Fair - Haired Goddess in the Eddas.
Sif is honored as the Goddess of the harvest. Unlike Freyja who is the Goddess of fertility, Sif does not create life, she is the one who nurtures it and sees it through to fruition. It is said that her hair is a representation of ripe wheat blowing gently in the breeze just before it is harvested.
Sif' s hair is also the subject of one of the better known stories in the Eddas. While she was resting peacefully Loki came up behind her and cut off all of her hair as a joke. Thor was of course not amused and threatened Loki' s life. Loki then went to the Land of the Dwarves and had them make hair of gold that when placed on Sif's head adheredperfectly to her scalp like real hair. The Dwarves also made other wonder gifts for the Gods such as Thor's hammer as well.
Sif is also though of as a Goddess of matrimony, but I always think of her walking through fields of ripe grains and vegetables blessing the very ground she walks on and protecting the crops she has seen to fruition.
All Hail the Harvest Goddess !
All Hail The Goddess of the Golden Hair !
All Hail Sif !
