Mokosh is a little known Slavic Mother Goddess. She is a protector of women, and traditional women’s work of spinning, weaving, and knitting. Her name means Friday. She is the Moist Mother Earth, and the most important goddess, and sometimes the only goddess, in the Slavic pantheon.
Mokosh is a goddess of fertility, a personification of the earth itself. In the spring, the most fertile time for the earth, it was taboo to spit on the earth or beat it, because the Goddess, and therefore the earth, was pregnant. Planting and fence building, or any other task that required digging, had to wait until after Lady Day, March 25th.
In modern times, Mokosh was converted to Saint Paraskeva Pyatnitsa, Mother Friday, a patroness of women, marriage, the home, and spinning.
