from Journeying to the Goddess

Goddess Mujaji

Mujaji’s themes are balance, restoration, weather, cleansing and fertility. Her symbols are rainwater. Mujaji is an African rain Goddess who exudes gently with fertility, or fiercely with cleansing, depending on the need. Her power and presence is so impressive that it led H. Rider Haggard to write the novel She, based on Her cult.
