Baba Yaga, Russian Goddess of the Otherworld


The patriarchy turned Baba Yaga into a crone witch to scare children when depicted in fairy stories. It is time to take her back as a Goddess into the Wicca fold.

Baba Yaga is the Russian Goddess of the Otherworld. She is often portrayed holding symbols of wisdom and power, e.g., a broom (to sweep out the entrance into the Otherworld), a spindle (to spin one’s fate), and a staff (a symbol of protection). These depict Baba Yaga’s primeval, original character. She is a Gatekeeper to the Otherworld, a Guide to transformation and death (real or symbolic), a helper, and a challenger. Baba Yaga will be a mentor and a guide, but she doesn’t pretend life will be easy.

This dark blue candle is embedded with citrine and alyssum flowers. The color dark blue represents authority and intelligence. The scent is a combination of eucalyptus, cypress, and bayberry. Citrine represents self-esteem and self-confidence. It exemplifies individuality, improves motivation, and encourages self-expression. The alyssum flower symbolizes the celebration of excellence and worth beyond beauty.

Meditation: Goddess and Keeper of the Otherworld, grant me your power, wisdom, and fearlessness as I dance with my internal wild woman.

Overall description. Coconut/Apricot wax candle hand-poured into a 10-ounce glass container. Burn time 20 hours. Each candle is dedicated to a Goddess with a suggested meditation. Handcrafted in Eugene, Oregon, candles have a wooden wick and are offered scented or unscented. Each candle is hand-mixed and hand-poured with love and care, incorporating principles of Wicca, aromatherapy, crystal energy, and color magic. As with all handcrafted products, slight variations in appearance may occur from the candle pictured.

Candle magic illuminates your intention and releases it out into the universe.

My candles are infused with herbs, crystals, and a meditation script to help you focus your energy. A simple spell to use with this candle is to create a quiet, comfortable, and safe space. Visualize your intention and read the meditation as you light the candle. Stare at the flame and continue to send your intent into the light. You can sit in front of it for as long as you like. When ready, close your candle ritual with words of gratitude and a positive affirmation. Let your candle burn as much as needed, making sure you extinguish it before you leave.

Please remember that while powerful, candle magic and intention do not manifest immediate results. Whatever magical ceremony or ritual you decide to perform is simply the messenger whose purpose is to deliver your goals into the arms of the universe—nothing more. You still have to show the cosmos that you are willing to do the work needed to reach your goal.

Candle symbology

A candle embodies the five elements: earth, water, air, fire, and spirit. The wick is earth and keeps the flame constant. The wax, which transforms from a solid to a liquid and then to gas, emulates water’s transmutation properties. Oxygen, archetypal of air, is crucial for keeping the flame lit. The flame is a direct connection to fire, the element of transformation, and rebirth. The fifth element, spirit, is within us and manifests when our intention is placed into the candle and infuses it with our soul.
