Mara

Goddess Mara (Morena) Artwork by Margo Kai https://www.instagram.com/margo_kai/

Modern artist’s conception of the Slavic Goddess Mara (Morena) – the Goddess of Winter, Death, and Rebirth.

Some modern Slavic pagans celebrate her on or around November 1, which they call Day of Mara. Another old name for that time of the year is Dedi (Dzyadi) – meaning, Grandparents or Forebearers. On that day the veil between the worlds of spirits and men, the living and the dead grows thin and both worlds can easily mix.

Mara covers the earth with white snow so that Nature can sleep and rest and gather strength to get ready for the new cycle of life in Spring. She is called the Goddess of Life Eternal and Resurrection.
