Slavic Goddesses

Phoenix of Elder Mountain – When personal web pages were new in the early 90s, you could find any goddess you wished, or many of their names on the web, and there were tens of thousands, Now, everything that was, is practically gone, people moved on, or web servers close down or women’s websites were filtered to not find them, so there not a lot of goddess teachings on the web anymore.

Things tend to be more gentrified these days, but I had some old lists on my old computer, and thought I would start compiling them again and updating. According to Pagan pantheon’s there are hardly any goddesses but its not truth, there are a lot.

Slavic and Balkan Goddesses (including some Nordic and Indigenous ones that are now called the lands of the Slavs) are here on this page. I will update as I come across more in old books, odd or rare astrological books, and esoteric works.  ~Phoenix
