The Spirit of Rusalye
The spirit of Belarus celebrates the pagan holiday of Rusalye, devoted to the rising of the water nymphs in June. According to legends, during the spring and summer flowering plants mermaid out of water and visit the village, flowing through fields and meadows.
This is when young women marry themselves to the SUN GOD, in eternal balanced connectivity with eternal GODDESS. Through this sacred balance, all life is brought fourth and sustained, just as the eternal promise of spring itself.
We celebrate this year in Canada on June 21st, which is Indigenous day here in Canada as well. Photo by Glorialana. ~rℒw
