HELLO, IT’s me
I am the bright female image in fauna, I am the companion and embodiment of Makosha – goddesses of destiny and harvest. People love me for cunning, resourcefulness. For me red color people compare me with fire, and with a thundercloud because of a brown shade of a fur coat. I am associated with fire and the sun, and according to some myths, it was me who stole fire to bring to the people.
I am generally considered to be a minor animal spirit associated with intelligence and wisdom, who occasionally helps people or animals to solve a problem or punishes somebody careless or arrogant.
