Just wondering if anyone would know how to pronounce:

"Ausekla Zvaigzne" ?

If so...could you spell it out phonetically for me?

THANKS!

Apparently, according to a google search, that's latvian mythology, not lithuanian.

1st hit off Google when you type in Ausekla Zvaigzne is:


http://altreligion.about.com/library/glossary/symbols/bldefsauseklaszvaigzne.htm

Aueskla means "star" in Lithuanian, and the Ausekla Zvaigzne ("star cross"), or Star of Auseklis, is the emblem of the Baltic Goddess Auseklis.

The symbol is one of many ancient cosmological and magical symbols used in Eastern European folk art, and represents the goddess as the personification of the planet Venus.

The word for star in lithuanian is žvaigždė. Ausekla doesn't show up in the dictionary nor does aueskla, or ausėkla, or aušėkla or any other variation.
Any other search result other than the first one refers to latvia, you can see that yourself.

Quoting dictionary.com
Quote:
star1 [staː] noun
the fixed bodies in the sky, which are really distant suns
Example: The Sun is a star, and the Earth is one of its planets.
Latvian: zvaigzne


You can check that yourself too.

Therefore, that website is just saying nonsenses. First of all, the word that means star is zvaigzne, and not ausekla. Second, it's not lithuanian, but latvian.

Do you believe me you?

Lithuanians have "Aušrinė žvaigždė" if we talk about the same :)
