Goddess Project Week Four: Artemis

on August 22, 2015

I can’t believe it’s the final week of my Goddess project! I am ending it with a bang though, as the Goddess I’ve picked for this week is Artemis, and I am super excited to be working with such an amazing Goddess!

Artemis is another Greek Goddess and interestingly is another daughter of Zeus, although with a different mother than Persephone.

Artemis is the Goddess of the hunt, the wilderness and wild animals. She is also very much about protection and strength. She appears to be a contradiction, as she is a Goddess of hunting, but she also protects animals. I personally think the hunting part is more an aspect of her personality, she aims for what she wants in life and goes out and gets them!

While reading about her today I felt a strong affinity with Artemis. She is a very feminist Goddess, who also particularly protects women. Apparently as a three year old she made six wishes which were:

. to be allowed to live without having to be distracted by love and marriage,
~ a bow and arrow just like her brother’s,
~ a hunting costume and freedom from having to dress up like a lady,
~ the job of bringing light into the world,
~sixty young nymphs to be her companions and to help care for her hunting dogs, and
~all the mountains on the earth to live on.

She is also a Goddess of childbirth, the moon and a ‘bringer of light’ and is all about courage.

I am looking forward to working with her powerful energy this next week!
