Indraja

September 29th, 2009 by sabrina

indrajaIndraja (pronounced in-DRAW-ya) is the Lithuanian Goddess of the planet Jupiter. She is one of the daughters of Saule, Goddess of the sun. Indraja was originally a water spirit, and she was meant to marry Perkunas, God of thunder, on a Thursday (the day ruled by Jupiter). When the other water spirits took her away from the wedding, she was instead turned into the planet Jupiter. Indraja’s name means “water witch.”
