Chinnamasta

In Hinduism, Chhinnamasta (often spelled Chinnamasta and also called Chhinnamastika) is one of the mahavidyas, and an aspect of Devi. The literal meaning of the word Chhinnamasta is one with a severed head. Chhinnamasta, having severed her own head with her own sword, holds her severed head on one of her hands. Three jets of blood spurt out of her bleeding neck, and one streams into her own mouth of her severed head, while the other two streams into the mouths of her two female associates.

She is the goddess of courage and discernment.
