"LESHACHIKHA" IS A RATHER TEMPERMENTAL FOREST DEITY IN EASTERN EUROPE. A FOREST GODDESS, SHE USUALLY APPEARS AS A WILD ANIMAL OR AS A LEAF. SHE GUARDS THE LAND AND ANIMALS OF THE WOOD, AND PUNISHES THOSE WHO ABUSE THEM. SHE IS THE WIFE OF THE FOREST GOD, "LESHII," AND THE MOTHER OF HIS PROGENY, THE "LESHONKI." SHE IS SAID TO DIE IN OCTOBER AND IS REBORN IN SPRING. BOTH THE SHE AND HER HUSBAND LIKED TO ABDUCT CHILDREN WHO WANDERED INTO THE FOREST.

She is very territorial and fiercely protects Her lands, often leading those who entered their forests astray or trying to drive them off. In this manner, She teaches us of reciprocity and honoring the lands. To avoid their spells, one needed to disrobe beneath a tree and then put their garments back on backwards, PLACING YOUR SHOES ON THE OPPOSITE FEET, AND THE SIGN OF THE CROSS OFTEN WORKS.
