IN NORSE MYTHOLOGY, THE SUN IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FEMALE WHILE THE MOON IS CONSIDERED MALE. THIS IS POSSIBLY DUE TO THE LONG, DARK WINTERS OF SCANDINAVIA AND THAT THE COMING OF THE SUN IS ASSOCIATED WITH WARMTH, LIGHT, LIGHT, AND FERTILITY. THE STORY OF SOL EXPLAINS HOW EARLY HUMANS HUMANIZED THE SUN TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HER.

"SOL "IS THE GODDESS OF THE SUN.IN HER SHINING BRIGHT GLORY, SHE GIFTS US WITH LIFE. SHE IS ALSO CALLED SUNNA OR SUNNE. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF MUNDAFARI, THE GIANT, AND GLAUR. HER BROTHER IS MANI, THE GOD OF THE MOON. SHE TRAVELS ACROSS THE HEAVENS, CARRYING THE SUN IN HER CHARIOT, WHILE BEING CHASED DURING THE DAY BY THE SUPERNATURAL WOLF WHO WANTS TO DEVOUR HER, SKOLL. OCCASIONALLY, SKOLL MANAGES TO GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO TAKE A SNAP AT SOL, AND IT IS AT THESE TIMES WHEN WE EXPERIENCE A SOLAR ECLIPSE. SOL IS ONE OF THREE GODDESSES FORETOLD TO DIE IN RAGNAROK, THE END OF THE COSMOS AS WE KNOW IT, BUT NOT BEFORE SHE GIVES BIRTH TO A DAUGHTER WHO IS DESTINED TO OUTSHINE HER IN BEAUTY.

ACCORDING TO THE MYTH, AT RAGNAROK, SKOLL FINALLY CATCHES UP TO SOL AND SLAYS HER. THE SKIES ARE COMPLETELY BLACK, AND SILENCE DESCENDS UPON A WORLD NOW DEVOID OF LIFE. SUDDENLY, THE SKY BRIGHTENS, AND THERE IS A NEW SUN DANCING ALONG THE OLD PATH OF THE PREVIOUS SUN, SOL. SHE WILL BE AS BEAUTIFUL AS HER MOTHER.
