MORANA, Slavic Goddess of death

Catalog number: SBH19

Your Price: 16.00 €

   

Morana is a part of a continuous cycle of life and death. She comes from nowhere and she’s not going anywhere, she has been present since the begining of time, and will be here as long as it exists, inextricably bonded to Svarog, as an antipode to the one who creates life... life that she would, when the time comes, take to the realm of the dead, world our ancestors - to Nav. Thus she does by sailing in the boat made of walnut tree, known as the tree of the dead in Slavic mythology.

Many rivers throughout the Slavic world (such as the Morava and Moravica) bear her name, because Morana reigns over rivers and seas.

Morana is also known as the Goddess of winter and she was expected with fear by the Slavs and her departure was celebrated loudly and joyfully, with many rituals – the most common one was making the straw puppet representing this goddess for the people to hit with sticks, throw into the water or burn and in this manner ritually destroy Winter. In March, another ritual connected to Morana would be performed. A procession of masked people would be organized to scare and chase away Morana.

Morana is probably the most powerful deity of all, but she is not evil ... She is the deity of inevitable, of what must be. There is no escape from her, and no one can question her power  - She likes warriors and farmers and all mankind, for we are all mortal, and all of us eventually end up in her arms.
