Sometimes Zorya is described as two or even three beings, but other times she is just one female. She was also a beautiful double guardian goddess known as the Auroras. Zorya lived on Bouyan Island. This was a legendary paradise where the winds of the North, East, and West met and the location where the Sun lived. However, no human could ever enter the space. The Zorya were very beautiful, but out of the reach of living men. The Zorya Zorya was also represented by two stars: the morning and the evening ones.
A cult for the stars shows the strong interest in rituals related to the powers of nature. It seems that the Slavic religion was even more focused on a connection with nature than many other ancient religions.
Zorja Utrennjaja was the Morning Star. This star was thought to open the gates of Dazbog. However, this star has its own name in every Slavic language. The Morning Star was linked to protection, horses, light, and exorcism. It was believed that it took care of spiritual cleaning and brought good emotions. Zorya was also connected to the planet Venus, and some of her attributes were similar to the Roman Venus and Greek Aphrodite.
Slavic tribes worshiped her every morning, when the sun was rising and bringing new day, new hope, and new possibilities to accomplish their goals. She accompanied her husband during battles. Her role was to protect the warriors - shielding them from death with her veil. She also brought hope and light if they were losing a battle. Other legends show her as the wife of Myesyats, the god of the moon, and as the mother of the stars.
