Carma (or Carna); in ancient pagan mythology, was the goddess who resided over the vital parts, and gave health and vigor. Some claim that she was the wife of Janus. The Greeks sacrificed to her on June 1, with pottage of beans, meal, and bacon. She is also called Dea Cardinsis, or The Goddess of the Hinge, because, says Ovid, by her influence she opens what is shut, and shuts what is open.
