Mokosh Candle Holder
Mokosh is a protector of women and goddess associated with the sacred feminine in Slavic pantheon. She is a goddess of water, home, earth, and female occupations such as spinning, weaving and fate.
Slavic women would throw hemp, called "mokrica" (mokar = wet), into the water. The hemp was a sacrifice offered to Mokos. Another of Mokos's roles was to protect the sheep and their fleece; the Slavs made offerings to her for that reason, too. A pair of scissors, basil and a skein of wool used to be put before the feet of Mokos's statue, with the aim of insuring protection for the lambs that hadn't been shorn yet. Rainfall is sometimes called Mokosh's milk. -epika.org
