----------
 
Saule's name has come up *numerous* times under: Sun, Sky, West,
Mountains,
Trees (apple) - in various places above, and yet to come. (I - "the
uninformed and ignorant" - am curious. Are you?)
 
SAULE -  The greatest goddess of the Baltic people - the Lithuanians and
Latvians - was the shining sun, the sky weaver, the amber goddess Saule.
She ruled all parts of life, from birth into her light to death when she
welcomed souls into her apple tree in the west. Even the name of the
ocean
on which the Balts lived was hers, named for Balta Saulite ("darling
little
white sun"). She was worshiped in songs and rituals that celebrated her
nurturance of earth's life, for she was Our Mother, called various names
like Saulite Mat ("little sun-mother") and Saulite Sudrabota ("little
silver sun").
   She was married in the springtime of creation to the moon man
Menesis.
Their first child was the earth; after that, countless children became
the
stars of heaven. Saule was a hardworking mother, leaving the house at
dawn
each day and driving her chariot across the sky until dusk. Menesis,
however, was fickle and carefree, staying home all day and only
sometimes
driving his moon-chariot.
   The light of Saule's life was her daughter (variously named
Austrine,
Valkyrine, and Barbelina, but most generally called Saules Meita, the
sun's
 
daughter), the beloved lady of the morning star. Each evening, after she
had bathed her weary horses in the Nemunas River, Saule looked for the
child. But one evening she could not find her - for in her absence,
Saule's
beautiful long-haired daughter had been raped by Menesis.
   Furious beyond words, Saule took a sword and slashed the moon's
face,
leaving the marks we see today. Then she banished him forever from her
presence; thus, they are no longer seen together in the sky - the end of
the happy paradise before the evil came into our world.
   Saule was worshiped every day when her people would bow to the east
to
greet Mother Sun. But she was especially honored on summer solstice,
Ligo,
when she rose crowned with a braid of red fern blossoms to dance on the
hilltops in her silver shoes. At that moment, people dived into
east-flowing streams to bathe themselves in her light. All the women
donned
similar braided wreaths and walked through the fields, singing goddess
songs, or daina. Finally, they gathered around bonfires and sang the
night
away. *sigh*
   Because Lithuanian is the oldest extant Indo-European language, it
is
thought that the Baltic mythologies hold clues to the original beliefs
of
that people. But scholarly convention has it that the Indo-Europeans
worshiped a sky father embodied in the sun. Whence, then, this powerful
sun
mother? Marija Gimbutas, herself Lithuanian, believed Saule to be an Old
European goddess of that woman-honoring culture that preceded the
Indo-European invasions; Saule was too vital to her people, according to
this theory, to give way to a male solar divinity. But sun goddesses in
other Indo-European areas show there is room for study.
