MIELIKKI (MY-LEE-KEE) IS THE FINNISH GODDESS OF THE HUNT. SHE IS CALLED THE 'LADY OF THE FOREST', THE GODDESS OF THE WOODS AND THE CREATURES THAT LIVE WITHIN THEM. SHE IS THE PATRON OF RANGERS IN MUCH THE SAME WAY THAT THE CELTIC GOD OGHMA WAS THE PATRON OF THE BARDS. MIELIKKI IS GOOD-HUMORED AND QUICK TO SMILE. WHE IS CONFIDENT IN HER ACTIONS AND LOYAL AND PROTECTIVE TO THOSE SHE CALLS FRIEND. THOUGH SHE KNOWS THAT SOME CREATURES MUST DIE IN ORDER TO MAKE WAY FOR OTHERS IN LIFE, SHE FINDS THE INJURIES OF ANIMALS AND HER OTHER FRIENDS HARD TO BEAR...AND AS A RESULT, OFTEN CURES THOSE INJURED CREATURES THAT SILVANUS WOULD LEAVE BE TO FUEL THE CYCLE OF DEATH AND REBIRTH.

HER SYMBOL IS A WHITE UNICORN ON A GREEN FIELD. HER TOTEM IS THE BEAR. SHE IS WORSHIPPED BY HUMANS, ELVES, AND DRYADS ALIKE...AND IS FOND OF WONDERING THE WOODS WITH ALL THE FAIRY FOLK. SHE IS ALLIED WITH AND IN THE SERVICE OF SILVANUS, THE ROMAN GOD OF THE WOODS, AND AS PARTRIARCHY BEGAN TAKING OVER, AND WITH THE GROWING POWER OF SILVANUS IN ITS WAKE, WE FIND HER BEING DIMINISHED IN HER OWN LIGHT. SHE BECAME NOT, MELIEKKI, GODDESS IN HER OWN RIGHT, BUT MIELIKKI, DAUGHTER TO SILVANUS'.

WHEN SHE MANIFESTS HERSELF, IT IS MOST OFTEN AS A GLOWING, WHITE UNICORN CAN BE SEEN GALLOPING IN THE AIR. IN THIS MANIFESTATION, SHE CAN ALSO CAST SPELLS BY TOUCHING HER HORN AND SPEAKING TELEPATHICALLY WITH ANY LIVING BEING. AT OTHER TIMES, SHE MIGHT APPEAR AS A DRIFTING RADIANCE OF BLUE-WHITE, OR GREEN, GOLD AND RUST. TO TEST THEIR BEHAVIOR, SHE OFTEN APPEARS TO THE RANGERS AS A MORTAL WOMAN WHO IS LOST AND ALONE IN THE FOREST. IF THE RANGER LOOKS CLOSELY, HE WILL SEE THAT HER FEET NEVER TOUCH THE GROUND, AND, THEREFORE, SHE LEAVES NO TRAIL.

WORSHIP OF MIELIKKI INVOLVES PERIODS OF INTROSPECTION AND MEDITATION EACH MORNING AND EVENTING...IN THE FOREST WHENEVER POSSIBLE. GROUPS OF WORSHIPPERS ALSO GATHER UNDER THE STARS TO SING HER PRAISES AND ASK FOR HER GUIDANCE.
