From our site answer,

ChinnamastA means the one with severed head. In the shAkta tradition, she is the sixth cosmic goddess of the ten "mahAvidyAs". Her form is very fierce and hence has attracted many controversies over the meaning. Some have even linked it with black magic etc. Let us see the esoteric meaning of the iconography,

The most controversial and important feature is the "head". The head signifies the mind and because the head is severed, it signifies transcending the mind or "mindlessness". This can also be equated to "turiya" or "turiyAteeta" state where mind is dissolved.

She is the giver of yogic powers and enlightenment. There is much importance of this goddess in the Tibetian tantric cult as well. There she is referred as "Vajra yogini".
