Zeķes Saule / Socks The Sun

Latviešu tautas folklorā no debesu spīdekļiem centrālais ir Saule. Saule ir mūžīgās kustības un dzīvības simbols. Citu zīmju vidū Saule ierindojas uz viena no augstākajiem pakāpieniem. Saule ir visa redzētāja un zinātāja.

Saule - (The Sun) was the goddess of the sun and fertility, patron goddess of the unlucky, including orphans. She was the mother of the daughters of the sun and lived on top of a mountain and flew across the sky on her chariot. At night, she sailed across the sea. She is a beloved Baltic Sun Goddess sometimes recognised as a red apple, setting in the west. Saule is reborn as her daughter, the morning star at the Winter Solstice.
