Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Máni is the personification of the moon. His father is Mundilfari and his sister is Sól, the sun. The moon and the sun are drawn by horses across the sky. Just as the sun is pursued by a wolf, so Máni is pursued by Hati who will catch him at Ragnarǫk and devour him. Máni steers the way of the moon and determines its waxing and waning. Once he took two children from earth, Bil and Hjúki, children of Viðfinnr, when they were coming from the spring Byrgir, and were carrying the bushel Sægr and the pole Simul on their shoulders. These children follow the moon and can be seen from the earth. [3]
