Mara is Slavic goddess of winter, death and night, who is light-skinned, dark-haired and beautiful, the embodiment of the ice and dignity.
Dark goddess practiced witchcraft, controled elements and different energies.
Her attributes were cold, winter, death, decay, darkness, destruction.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Мара (Морена, Морана) - Богиня зимы, смерти и ночи, жена Чернобога, дочь Лады и Сварога, сестра Живы и Лели.

Мара представлялась нашим предкам как светлокожая и темноволосая красавица, воплощение льда и достоинства.
Эта высокая красивая девушка с черными волосами в красных одеждах.

Темная богиня водила дружбу с Ягой, женой Велеса. Согласно легендам Мара отдавала Яге души людей, а Яга взамен позволяла богине смерти спускаться в Навий мир, в который по Сварожьим законам ни бог, ни живой человек не имели хода. Также Мара и Яга вместе практиковали чародейство, контроль над стихиями и различными энергиями.
Атрибуты Мары – холод, зима, смерть, тлен, мрак, разрушение.
