VAKARIN (pronounced va-ka-REE-nay) is the Lithuanian Goddess of the evening star. She is the daughter of Saule, Goddess of the sun, and Meness, God of the moon, and the sister of Ausrin, Goddess of the morning star. While the evening star and the morning star are both actually the planet Venus, the Balts separated them into two personalities, one who made the sun ready to go out in the morning, and one who welcomed her home in the evening. Vakarin made sure that Saule's bed was ready for her each night, so that she could rest well before her next day's journey. Vakarin is known in Latvia as RIETEKLIS.
