IN NORSE MYTHOLOGY, "SJOFN" IS THE ANCIENT GODDESS OF MARRIAGE AND LOVE. SHE IS THE GODDESS OF TENDERNESS AND AFFECTION WHO PUTS LOVE IN OUR HEARTS AND IGNITES THE FIRES OF PASSION. SHE STOPS FIGHTS BETWEEN HUSBANDS AND WIVES, BUT HER MAIN ROLE IS TO GET MEN AND WOMEN TO FALL IN LOVE AND BE IN LOVE. AND, TOO FULFILL HER ROLE SHE USES MANY DIFFERENT METHODS, INCLUDING MAGICAL HERBS, AND POTIONS WHICH SHE SERVES HER MANY GUESTS.

ANOTHER ONE IS TO SING WITH HER SEDUCTIVE AND ENCHANTING VOICE. SHE REMOVES FEAR AND PAST REGRETS FROM THE HEART AND INSPIRES PASSION FOR THE OPPOSITE SEX. IT IS SAID THAT HER VOICE HAS MAGICAL QUALITIES AND CAN MAKE PEOPLE FORGET THEIR ANGER, SORROW, WOUNDS AND HATRED. SOME SAY THAT WHEN THEY HEAR HER VOICE THEY FEEL LIKE THEY ARE ENGULFED IN A CLOUD OF JOY WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST. THEIR HEARTS FULL OF LOVE, FREE FROM FEAR.

SHE IS ALSO A PROTECTOR OF THE ANNUAL SPRING FEASTS THAT WERE CELEBRATED IN THE NORDIC COUNTRIES IN DAYS OF OLD. BONFIRES WERE LIT TO HONOR BOTH HER AND HER FERTILITY GODDESS SISTERS EVERY SPRING IN THE HOPE THAT THEY WOULD SOW SEEDS OF LOVE AND GROW IN MAN AND SOIL, BRINGING LOVE AND A GOOD HARVEST TO THE PEOPLE. A TOKEN FOR HER IS A ROSE COLORED STONE HEART ON A GOLD CHAIN.
