In Slavic mythology, Vesna (right) is the goddess of spring, fertility, and youth. She overlooked all of springtime, and was also associated with the birth of everything alive. Morana (left) was considered the complete opposite of Vesna, being the goddess of winter, death, and the night. They are both considered beautiful; Morana being the pale goddess representing beauty in decay, while Vesna’s rose cheeks and luscious looks represent spring and renewal. A widespread ritual of the burning of Morana existed. At the end of winter, many Slavic tribes made a rag and straw doll that symbolized Morana and burned her to help Vesna, spring, arrive earlier.

How could you NOT fall in love with the glow of the moon and stars, the warmth of the sun, the ancient life within the trees, and the sweet melodies of the winds?

The goddess Artemis had a twin brother, Apollo, the many-faceted god of the Sun. He was her male counterpart: his domain was the city, hers the wilderness; his was the sun, hers the moon; his the domesticated flocks, hers the wild, untamed animals; he was the god of music, she was the inspiration for round dances on the mountains.
