Mokosh is a Slavic Earth Goddess whose name means “moist earth.” She is the protector of women and women’s crafts, such as weaving and sheering. In this capacity, she is a Goddess of Fate. Mokosh is not only a symbol for the budding of life, as in the Maiden aspect, but moreover, has the attributes of the triple Goddess combined in her as overseeing fertility and motherhood, and midwifery, the latter being the Crone aspect. She quite literally spans the entire life of a human being. She is also the guardian of wells and underground springs. Mokosh was often depicted with black skin, as this stands for the fertile soil that is also moist. She is forever fertile and life-giving and creating and has great restorative and healing powers.
Mokosh reminds you that the earth is fertile and nurturing. It grows and supports you when mixed with water to make it fertile and turn it into a good, healthy soil for you to dig in your roots and draw the strength and all you need in terms of physical needs being met and opportunities provided for you to grow in strength and successfully reach ever higher towards the sun. Her energies also possess great healing powers, and she also supports you in business or legal matters, assisting you to find the best possible solution for all concerned.
