    I didn’t see a category for just Goddesses – so I thought I would start one for the women of Slavorum. A place to post your obscure to well known Goddesses without any PPH (pagan pantheon harassment) of whats real and whats not. Many many goddesses did not make it into pagan traditions and were lost, but small pieces of them were woven into cloth, into archaeology digs, into symbolism, into folk dances etc.  Being creative as women its wise to extract from mythology, folkology, mystery, witchery, and stories into the act of rituals and healing for our communities. So feel free to post your findings, stories, goddesses you work with, rituals with those goddesses. That is what this thread here is for – for support and validation. Blessings Phoenix

    Ukraine Goddesses via a Ukraine website called moonshaman.com and translated from the original language – Article by Levgeniia

    DEVICH  MOUNTAIN. TRYPILLYA.
    Heading to Trypillya’s museum, Archaeological excavations confirm that there were settlement and burial ground belonging to the Zarubintsy culture in the 2nd century bce, and Old Slavic pagan temple of the 6th century too. They assume that there was a sanctuary of the Great Goddess. It is possible that the nine hemispherical indentations for ritual offerings to the deity, symbolizing the nine months of a woman’s gestation. The locals say that if a woman makes an offering, the Goddess will help her to conceive a baby.

    3 x 3 is 9 and that is ancient symbol of the trinitarian goddess which is unfolding in the nine months required for the emergence of a new life into this world. 9 offerings, 9 elements, 9 spells for a new destiny. If you’re going to go here, you should take milk and living grains as gifts to the goddesses.

    An strange but interesting fact is that in sanctuaries that dedicated to Perun but its obvious the sanctuary is of female goddesses because of the 9 fireplaces for offerings. Similar nine-fire sanctuary were discovered in the ancient settlement of the old Ryazan. During excavations in Novgorod, there was discovered the same ritual complex consistency of nine water wells of the goddess.

    Similar to the Devich Mountain altar, dating from the beginning of the 10th century ce, was excavated in Moravia (chateu Pohansko), but no signs of fire pits. The memories of the sanctuary were left in the name Devin of two mountains nearby and the name of the River Dyje (Goddess).

    More broadly, the mountains are called Devic in Zdolbuniv. There is the mountain called “Maiden Rock” in the Ternopil region. There are mountains with the same name in the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Poland. There is “Panieńskie Skały” in Kraków. Even in Kiev the famous Bald Mountain on the banks of Lybid was sometime called Devich-Mountain. This was mentioned in the book by I.I. Fundukley (Kiev), written in 1847: “Moreover, remember the two mountains over Dnipro at the mouth of Lybid: one of them is located on the right bank, in the old days was called Divich Mountain, and the other, on the left bank Busovitsa or mountain Busov” (Zaika, 2005). Scholars think perhaps Bald Mountain is actually the remains of ancient cult worship of a female deity Diva.

    Of particular interest is the fact that at the foot of the Kiev Bald Mountain was earlier a small lake, where according to the legend mermaids were found. And on hills of the mountain there grows plenty of Elderberry bushes. Both birches and fruit trees are almost entirely absent and gone now. Observing all over the mountain there was only one birch tree on a small hill. Now there are arranged the sanctuary of Lada by the Rodnovers (the followers of Slavic Native faith).

    Nonetheless, Bald Mountain in Kiev is the the domain of Mokosh. Those who have been there, perhaps, will agree to that. Enchanted forest with deep ravines seems to be shrouded in mystery. Even on sunny days the coolness and shade reigns here. In the period of August-September here you can collect delicious elderberry for magic tinctures. Not so far from Kiev and Trypillya in Sakhnovka (Cherkasy region) on the banks of the river Ros there is another Devich Mountain.

    Here was found a golden plate with the image of the festival in honor of a female deity of the Scythians. And still now on its top there are three crosses, like a symbol of the trinitarian (triple) Goddess, bringing her energy of the sacred space to the present time. I should also mention of the Grandmother Mountain (Babyna Gora) and the settlement close to Zarubintsy (Cherkasy region). Here are found the burial of baby skulls. And the ritual supplies, as in conventional burials, were not here. Most likely the children were from some local war that had invaded the sanctuary. These are the secrets of ancient priestesses of these divinities called Goddess.

    Weather Goddess: Ślaska-Dzdża
    by Miron via https://wiaraprzyrodzona.wordpress.com

    Goddess Ślaska-Dzdża is the daughter of Wady and Wodo-Welma. She is the Goddess of Waters, Lady of the Rain and Lady of the Waterfalls. Dżdża-Dożda is the Dawczyk of the Rain and deals with all sorts of falling waters, including joining Perperun in Storms and squeezing Rain from Perperuna’s cloudy dark dresses, which allows her to wash the lands and purify them. Goddess Ślaska, also called the Saliva, is nicknamed: Słota, Dżdża and Ducza. The equivalent of Śląkwa is the god of rain Lituvanis. 

    The nickname Ducza is associated with the circle meaning falling water: ducza – waterfall, duli, dunąti – drizzle, rain with wind, duja – storm. This reference approaches Ślęża, like Słotek, to the group of the goddesses and gods of Heaven and the Light (Dażbogowie, Denga) and the Air [spirit-air (wozduch), spirit-scent] and Wind (Dyj). The nickname Ducza also refers to the Ritual Dances in the Circle (dujti-to finish). 

    Słota means the daughter of the Sołow family, also the Goddess of the Sleeping Rain. The word also describes bad weather, drizzle, constant, continuous rain. The word Russian dos (rainy) specifies a type of drizzle, a continuous rainfall that is systematic, long-lasting, but unpleasant. Dżdża-Dożda is the Dawczyk of the Rain. The main name of the goddess, Ślęża, also has a variety of Śniiąta. Wyrazlinąti is an ancient Slavic term related to pouring water: a line – to pour, pour – fly, rain – pour, pour – not only to flow, but also to expand, plum – to drench, rainstorm, tears.

    This is where the name Śląsko (Śląsk, Ślęgia) comes from – Ziemia Deszczów, inhabited by numerous tribes from the Lęgów people (Z-Lęgów), part of Lęgia (Lugia). The Lęgowie were the main worshipers of the Great Goddess of Rain Ślęża. The close relationship with the name of the goddess also has words from the circle to heal, to sob – means to struggle, hurt.

    The goddess was probably once, in ancient times, the main goddess of the Lęgów people – the Great Mother, who cared for water, forests, meadows, the entire tribal lands, fertility of animals and plants of the land, and prosperity of the whole people.
