Akka

Akka, also known as Maan-Emo, Maa-Emoinen, Rauni, Ravdna and Roonikka, is a Finnish Earth Goddess. In fact, she is THE Earth Mother Goddesses. She was the consort of the god Ukko, and is the main goddesses of the Fins. She is the goddess of fertility, sexuality, and strength.
If you are doing Earth magic—kitchen witchery, planting, ect—she is a great Goddess to call on. You can also call on her when harvesting, as this is another aspect of her.
Her sacred tree is the Rowan.

Her name, Akka, means “woman” or “female”.
