Leshachikha is the Slavonic goddess of the forest. She watches over the land and animals of the wood. She is the wife of the forest god the Leshy and mother of Leshonki. She is sometimes depicted as an ugly woman with huge drooping breasts, and at other times, as a naked young girl. She dies in Winter and is revived in the Spring.
She and Her husband were very protective of their territory and often led those who happened
to enter it far off into the wrong direction. Of
course, they would always release them in the end. It is believed that if one
wants to avoid falling under their spell, one must remove their clothing
while standing under a tree, then put them back on again backwards.

Hymn to Aphrodite
I will sing of stately Aphrodite, gold-crowned and beautiful, whose
dominion is the walled cities of all sea-set Cyprus. There the moist
breath of the western wind wafted her over the waves of the loud-moaning
sea in soft foam, and there the gold-filleted Hours welcomed her
joyously. They clothed her with heavenly garments: on her head they put a
fine, well-wrought crown of gold, and in her pierced ears they hung
ornaments of orichalc and precious gold, and adorned her with golden
necklaces over her soft neck and snow-white breasts, jewels which the
gold- filleted Hours wear themselves whenever they go to their father's
house to join the lovely dances of the gods. And when they had fully
decked her, they brought her to the gods, who welcomed her when they saw
her, giving her their hands. Each one of them prayed that he might lead
her home to be his wedded wife, so greatly were they amazed at the
beauty of violet-crowned Cytherea.
I'm a 66 year young crone. I was born in the beautiful countryside, but have been living in the city for 30 odd years now. As a want-to-be be hippie, I first lived in Greenwich Village, then moved to Queens, and eventually here I am in Brooklyn, yearning to go home. I've spent much of my life in search of a path that I could feel comfortable with. It wasn't until I began working on my family tree that I discovered my Celtic background as well as ancestors from Ireland, Scotland, Britain, Germany, and France. Why I've a touch of Dutch and Native American in my blood. I have studied with the New Order of Druids.
I am also an ordained Interfaith minister and a victim advocate. I'm also an astrologer, have worked with numerology, enjoy mythology, psychology, sociology. On July 12th 2013 I retired from my job as a substance abuse counselor after 51 years of work. Now it is time for me, and I am enjoying every moment of it.
