Mythology: Vila [Slavic folklore]
Though, the Vila’s moral alignments vary, and as such, the use of their feminine charm may be benign or malevolent. Some bat their eyes and flip their hair to attract a lover, while others lead pursuers to a literal dance of death. Yet, even moral alignment can sometimes be a blur; not always will a benevolent Vila help passersby in need. [x]
I was thinking over the holiday break about new features I could add to the blog to make it more interesting for new followers. I’ve always been a big fan of confession blogs since I first joined Tumblr, and wondered if anyone would be interested if I implemented something like that as an extra feature. Though, I wasn’t sure if anyone would like, or even be interested, in such a thing so that’s up in the air.
Also, a giveaway in the near future is certainly becoming more of a reality. It will take a lot of planning, though, but be on the lookout for updates. :)
Finally finished this beauty. :’) Here is the 3rd Mythological Goddess in my “Strong Women throughout Mythology” series. A Yoruba Goddess of Nigerian Mythology, Oshun, the goddess of love and marriage.
"Oshun, the Yoruban Goddess of love, delights in the creation of beauty and art, sensual delights and self-adornment. Her symbols are mirrors, jewelry, honey, golden silks and feather fans. Creativity in decorating home and temple is a way of honoring Oshun, who will bless any beautiful space created in Her honor. There is no object so common that Oshun will not appreciate more if it is made artistic and pleasing to the eye. Creativity in dress and self-adornment please her as well, and when Oshun is pleased, her blessings know no limits."
