AUSEKLIS

Baltic Star God

Also known as LIELAIS-AUSEKLIS

Latvian God of the Morning Star

Good morning. He is Venus and best buddies with MENESS the Moon God. According to some legends he was a suitor at SAULE’s daughter’s wedding, but the whole affair is clouded by confusion.

Nowadays he offers basic protection from evil insurance via his handy eight-pointed star symbol. If you can draw it without lifting your hand from the paper, he will ensure you do not drop dead today. Try it with your friends!
