LELA IS THE SLAVIC GODDESS OF THE FOREST; SHE TAKES CARE OF THE FOREST CREATURES AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO SEEK SHELTER IN THE WOODS. SHE IS A VERY OLD DEITY, AND HER CULT IS MOST LIKELY CONNECTED TO THAT PERIOD OF MATRIARCHY IN THE DISTANT PAST. SHE IS SIMILAR TO THE GREEK GODDESS, ARTEMIS, SINCE BOTH ARE ASSOCIATED WITH WILD FEMALE SEXUALITY DURING A TIME WHEN WOMEN WERE NOT TREATED AS SUBMISSIVE AND INFERIOR TO MEN.

AS THE PROTECTOR OF WOMEN, LELA IS STILL INVOKED BY SERBIAN WOMEN WHO FACE SERIOUS PROBLEMS. SHE IS A GODDESS OF SUMMER AND THE ETERNAL BRIDE OF THE SUN. IN SOME OF THE OLD SLAVIC TALES, SHE IS ALSO REFERRED TO AS THE SUN'S SISTER. IN THE TALES OF LELA, WE CAN ACTUALLY SEE HOW ONE OF THE SUPREME FEMALE DEITIES OF THE PAST WAS DETHRONED AND MADE TO SHARE HER DIVINE FEATURES WITH A MALE COUNTERPART. THE GODDESS OF MATRIARCHY WAS SLOWLY LOSING HER POWER.
