"Baba Yaga, Wildwoman, Crone, Grandmother of the dancing hut, Witch of the untamed wood, Oracle of the Darksome Moon, Lend me your harsh wisdom, Devour my childish fear. Grind away that which does not serve me, That I may fly anew. Atop the clouds in your mortar, Your pestle, my oar and sword.” ~Galdorcraeft (A Crone's Prayer)

(my transl: Dziewanna and Marzanna could be the life-spring/death-winter sides of one Goddess.
