Whale Goddess’ themes are nature, meditation, rebirth and movement. Her symbols are water and whales. In Arabic tradition, the Whale Goddess swallowed Jonah, giving him time to consider his life and actions, seriously before his figurative rebirth. In some stories the earth rests on this Goddess’s back, and earthquakes result when She gets upset and shakes Her tail. She has many names: Mamacocha, Yu-kiang, Sedna, Big Raven, Natsihlane, Heimskringla, King Sulemani.
