The moon was associated to fate and destiny. The faces of the moon were very important and people believed that the phase of the moon was responsible for the outcome of any action. Ancient Finns always took the phases of the moon into account during rituals, spells, prayers and even in performing simple actions in their everyday life. The phases of the moon were four in Finnish Paganism each lasted approximately for a week. The first was the birth of the moon, the early moon, the second phase was the upper moon which ended in a full moon the third phase was the lower moon (Alakuu) that would end in the fourth phase which was the old moon and the birth of a new one. The moon Goddess was Kuu she has a significant place in the practices of Finish Paganism, while some even believe that it was her knee responsible for the creation of the world, personally I support this belief.Additional information: http://www.spellsofmagic.com/read_post.html?post=583839 Those are considered to be the basic information on Ancient Finnish mythology. Attention: Suomenusko is a form of neo Paganism based on Ancient Finnish mythology it may involve a few alterations. If anyone is interested in additional information I have books to recommend.
