POMONA is the Roman Goddess of fruit trees and orchards. Pomona lived in an orchard, from which she barred all men. Many men tried to gain entrance to her orchard, but she denied them. Finally, Vertumnus, God of the changing of the seasons, took to using disguises to trick her. One day, an old woman came to Pomona's orchard, and she was admitted. The woman told Pomona that she should reconsider her rejection of Vertumnus, and illustrated with the story of Iphis and Anaxerete:

Iphis was a young man who fell desperately in love with the maiden Anaxerete, but she was unmoved by his declarations of love, and even mocked him. Iphis, realizing that it was hopeless, killed himself in front of Anaxerete's house. Still she was unmoved, and Venus, the Goddess of love, punished her for her coldness by turning her to stone.

When the old woman finished the story, she threw off her cloak, revealing herself to be Vertumnus in disguise. Pomona relented, and they were married. Pomona's name comes from the Latin word pomum, meaning "fruit", and she was also called the "APPLE-MOTHER".

Goddess Gula Bau

Goddess Gula Bau Image
"GULA BAU", THE" GREAT ONE", IS THE BABYLONIAN GODDESS OF HEALING AND PATRON OF MEDICINE. THIS UNDERWORLD GODDESS WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THE SKY GOD, "ANI", AND THE EARTH GODDESS, "URASH. "SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF" TAMMUZ. "SHE LIVES IN A GARDEN IN THE CENTER OF THE WORLD, AND IT WAS SHE WHO HELPED TO BREATHE LIFE INTO MANKIND AFTER THE GREAT FLOOD. IT WAS ORIGINALLY THOUGHT THAT THERE HAD BEEN TWO GODDESSES...GULA AND A GODDESS CALLED, BAU...BUT THE TWO ARE IDENTICAL. SHE OFTEN APPEARS AS A WOMAN WITH STARS AND HER DOG. SHE WAS ALSO WORSHIPPED AS A GODDESS OF THE GRAIN AND WAS A FORERUNNER OF DEMETER AND PERSEPHONE.

Gula is the mother of healing of the body, mind, and the soul. She rules over all herbs and incantations used for health-related issues. She is often called the great physician and accordingly plays a prominent role in incantation rituals intended to relieve those who are suffering from disease. She was the life-giver who cured disease with the touch of Her hand and led the dead to a new life. She is also a Goddess of Retribution and has the power to inflict disease as well as to heal.

HER COLOR WAS BLUE. HER SACRED ANIMAL WAS THE DOG; IN FACT, A LARGE NUMBER OF SMALL VOTIVE FIGURES OF DOGS DEDICATED TO THE GODDESS BY HER DEVOTEES HAVE BEEN FOUND IN EXCAVATIONS AT THE ISIN SANCTUARY OF GULA. IT SEEMS THAT DOGS WERE ALLOWED TO WANDER FREELY WITHIN THE SANCTUARY AND PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN THE HEALING RITUAL.

Baba Yaga 4

Baba Yaga 4 Image
IN SLAVIC MYTHOLOGY," BABA YAGA "IS THE ARCHETYPAL HAG, THE OLD WITCH, THE ANCIENT SLAVIC GODDESS OF DEATH AND REGENERATION. "BABA", IN EASTERN EUROPE, MEANS "REVERED GRANDMOTHER" OR "HOLY TEACHER." SHE IS THE WILD OLD CRONE WHO LIVES IN THE NOCTURNAL DARKNESS, FAR FROM THE WORLD OF MEN. SHE RULES OVER THE ELEMENTS AND ORDERS THE CYCLES OF NATURE. SHE IS "MOTHER TIME" HERSELF. SHE IS OFTEN DEPICTED AS LIVING IN A REMOTE FOREST IN A MAGICAL HUT WHICH IS SURROUNDED BY A FENCE OF BONES; SHE REPRESENTS THE POWER OF OLD AGE, OF WITCH, AND OF THE LIFE CYCLE THAT IS BIRTH, DEATH AND REBIRTH. SHE IS THEREFORE ALSO ASSOCIATED WITH BIRCH FORESTS.

SHE WATCHES OVER THE "WATER OF LIFE AND DEATH, "AND DESPITE HER POWERFUL APPEARANCE, SHE IS ALSO THE" EARTH MOTHER "WHO POSSESSES THE POWER OF NATURE AND ALL OF THE SEASONS. INDEED, "BABA YAGA "IS THE"GREAT G"ODDESS OF NATURE" AS WELL AS THE "GODDESS OF DEATH"....IN THE SENSE THAT DEATH IS PART OF NATURE. AS THE GODDESS OF DEATH AND BIRTH, SHE IS CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH SERPENTS AND DRAGONS. ALTHOUGH SHE IS FEARSOME TO LOOK UPON, LIKE ALL FORCES OF NATURE THAT ARE OFTEN WILD AND UNTAMED, SHE CAN ALSO BE KIND. ALTHOUGH SHE IS ESSENTIALLY REGARDED AS A FEMALE DEITY, SHE IS EQUALLY AT HOME IN THE WORLD OF MEN AND CARRIES A WAND WITH WHICH SHE CAN TRANSFORM HERSELF AT WILL.

SHE IS A POWERFUL FIGURE TO WOMEN OF ALL AGES, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE PAST THE AGE OF REPRODUCTION. WE MEET HER EACH DAY AS PARTS OF US DIE AND IN EVERY SITUATION OF LOSS--JOBS, RELATIONSHIPS, ETCH. SHE IS THE REFLECTION OF OUR SHADOW, OUR DARK SIDE, AND IT IS THROUGH HER THAT WE CAN HOPE TO BE REBORN. DEALING WITH "BABA YABA" MEANS WE HAVE TO BE IN TOUCH WITH OUR OWN LIFE FORCE, AND AS FOR AS LONG AS WE ARE HOSTILE TO HER, SHE WILL BE HOSTILE TO US, BUT TO THE PURE AT HEART, SHE OFFERS ADVICE, WISDOM, AND MAGICAL GIFTS.
