Baba Yaga~ Hidden Lore

In Slavic folklore, #BabaYaga is an old woman with a long nose and iron teeth who steals, cooks, and eats her victims, usually children. However, the role is not what defines her. Simultaneously she guards the fountains of the water of life and sprinkles this sacred water upon the dead so they can be reborn. Perhaps this is why in some stories she is known to harm and in others she is not a protagonist, but helpful. She lives with her sisters (also known as Baba Yaga) in a forest hut that spins continually on chicken legs. Her fence is topped with human skulls. She rides through the air—in an iron kettle or in a mortar that she drives with a pestle—creating tempests as she goes. The mortar in which she rides has opposing symbolism of life and death, the mortar death and the pestle brings life. Her legend suggests she is the guardian of hidden lore. Ride in Baba’s Cauldron to transmute yourself delving deep within her mysteries.
