Column 708, 9 Sif

Why did you choose Sif for Yesod? Nothing I have learned about her from literary sources stands out as particularly characteristic of this correspondence, but perhaps I am just missing something.

The original idea came from her being the sister of Heimdall - creating a Sun-Moon brother-sister relationship. But she is also a goddess of fertility and has a broad connection to the Mars force (including to Thor), with the strong Yesod-Mars complex relationship; a name that essentially means "she that is joined or espoused;" and other minor lunar ideas.

The main thing was the Heimdall Tifereth-Yesod link plus the Mars linkage.

I was aware of the etymology of her name, but did not make the Yesod-Mars connection with it. In combination with her relationship to Heimdall that makes sense, thank you.

In case the Y'sod-Mars point wasn't clear: Y'sod (YSVD) enumerates to 80. This links it very solidly with Peh (80), which leads to several very clear relationships being witnessed between Y'sod and what is commonly called "the Mars force" (most commonly, but not exclusively, expressed through organs of sexual reproduction).
