Sif is the Norse Goddess of the grain, who is a prophetess,

She is a swan-maiden, like the Valkyries, and can take that form.

Sif was the lovely Norse Goddess and wife to Thor. She was known to represent different aspects of the home, fertility, fidelity and the divination magic of women. She was also referred to as a swan-wife, one of the mythic maidens who with winged cape, could fly between worlds.

Her most stunning feature was her hair, it would often change colors depending on season
and her mood and the moon cycle

One night, Loki, who just couldn't resist a little chaos and mischief, snuck into Her chamber and chopped it all off. A sobbing and horrified Sif went straight to Her husband, who in His rage started breaking Loki's bones, one by one, until finally He swore to make the situation right.

So Loki went to the dwarves and persuaded them to make not only a new head of magic hair for Sif from pure gold, but also a magical ship and a spear. But Loki could not resist pushing His luck, and made a wager with two other dwarves, Brokk and Sindi, daring them to make better treasures. Loki was so sure of the outcome that He had let His own head be the prize. Underestimating the dwarves' skills (or the depth of their hatred for Him), He suddenly realized with a shock that Brokk and Sindi were winning! In desperation He changed Himself into a horsefly, biting and pestering the dwarves while they worked. In spite of this they managed to produce several treasures, the most famous of which was Mjollnir, Thor's Hammer.

The Gods were then called to arbitrate and declared Brokk and Sindi the winners. Loki promptly disappeared. When He was tracked down He was again given to the dwarf brothers, but this time Loki agreed, yes, they had a right to His head, but the wager had said nothing about His neck. Frustrated with this "logic", the dwarves had to content themselves with sewing His lips shut.



The new head of golden hair was given to Sif, where it magically grew from Her head just as if it were natural. Her golden hair is said to represent the wheat of summer that is shorn at harvest-time.

This card in a reading indicates that the situation will have its ups and downs, but that ultimately things will turn out for the better. (Be prepared for the consequences if you push your luck, though.) Great beauty and healing will come at the end of this cycle

    I suppose I should ask if Loki ever got the stitches removed or are they permanent?

    No way....that relationship must have came up long after they were separately formed.
    All people relied on grain ....It's purely orginal to both cultures...just as there are pyramids in Egypt and Mexico..

    No, I just believe they evolved seperately from one another...when the cultures met they connected their myths just like when the Ptolemies were in Egypt they connected gods and formed new one that shared trait of Greek and Egyptian gods...Like Serapis....Mixed Zeus, Osiris, and Apis - a Greco- Egpytian god

    It is true i lie not...the Ptolemies made gods that relate to both Egyptians and Greeks so that they may feel closer ....The Ptolemies even crowned themselves Pharaohs...Alexander was the first of these so called Greeks(he was really a Macedonian who loved greek culture and wanted to be called Greek)
    He built the city of Alexandria and the lighthouse of Alexandria which was lost to a raging sea due to earthquakes..... built city alexandria lighthouse alexandria lost raging sea earthquakes lighthouse of alexandria
