Santa Muerte  

Posted by Stella Clark

Santa Muerte Cover
Santa Muerte is a sacred figure venerated in Mexico, probably a syncretism between Mesoamerican and Catholic beliefs. The name literally translates to "Saint Death. " Mexican culture since the pre-Columbian era has maintained a certain reverence towards death, which can be seen in the widespread Mexican celebration of the syncretic Day of the Dead. Catholic elements of that celebration include the use of skeletons to remind people of their mortality. Santa Muerte generally appears as a skeletal figure, clad in a long robe and carrying one or more objects, usually a scythe and a globe. The robe is most often white, but images of the figure vary widely from person to person and according to the rite being performed or the petition of the devotee. As the cult of Santa Muerte was clandestine until recently, most prayers and other rites are done privately in the home. However, for the past ten years or so, worship has become more public, especially in Mexico City. The cult is condemned by the Catholic Church in Mexico, but it is firmly entrenched among Mexico's lower classes and criminal worlds. The number of believers in Santa Muerte has grown over the past ten to twenty years, to approximately two million followers and has crossed the border into Mexican American communities in the United States.

ARTIO (pronounced ARE-tee-oh) is the Gaulish Goddess of wild animals, especially bears. She was worshipped in Switzerland, where a bronze statue of her feeding a bear calls her DEAE ARTIONI. She is also associated with fertility and fruition, since breeding bears spend their hibernation pregnant and give birth when they rise in the spring.

Nyx Primordial Goddess Of The Night

Nyx Primordial Goddess Of The Night Cover
Nyx in Hesiod's Theogony - Night is born of Chaos; her offspring are many, and telling. With her brother Erebus, Night gives birth to Aether ("atmosphere") and Hemera ("day"). Later, on her own, Night gives birth to Momus "blame", Ponos "toil", Moros "fate", Thanatos "death", Hypnos "sleep", the Oneiroi "the tribe of dreams", the Hesperides, the Keres and Fates, Nemesis, Apate "deception", Philotes "friendship", Geras "age", and Eris "strife".

In his description of Tartarus, Hesiod says further that Hemera "day", who is now Night's sister rather than daughter, left Tartarus just as Nyx entered it; when Hemera returned, Nyx left. This mirrors the portrayal of Ratri "night" in the Rig-Veda, where she works in close cooperation but also tension with her sister Ushas "dawn".

Goddess Acca Larentia Image
"ACCA LAURENTIA" WAS REGARDED IN ROME AS AN EARTH MOTHER GODDESS, NOURISHING AND LIFE-GIVING.. HOWEVER, HER OTHER SIDE IS THAT OF A CHTHONIAN GODDESS BELONGS IN THE UNDERWORLD FOR IT IS INTO THE ABODE OF THE DEAD THAT SHE TAKES HER CHILDREN AT THE END OF THEIR LIFE. IN ANCIENT MYTH, CHTHONIAN DEITIES OFTEN TOOK THE SHAPE OF A WOLF, AND "ACCA LAURENTIA" WAS THE SHE WOLF WHO SUCKLED ROMULUS AND REMUS.

THERE ARE A FEW DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS AS TO WHO SHE WAS, BUT SHE WAS A GODDESS NATIVE TO THE PEOPLE OF ITALY. ONE ACCOUNT SAYS THAT SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF THE LARES (HOUSEHOLD GODS OR ANCESTRAL SPIRITS) AND THE "ARVAL "BROTHERS (THE 12 PRIESTS OF THE FIELD GODS). OTHERS SAY SHE IS A GODDESS OF SEXUALITY IN WHOSE WORSHIP SACRED PROSTITUTION PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE. ACCORDING TO ROMAN MYTH, SHE WAS A LOOSE WOMAN AND A MISTRESS OF "HERCULES.".. ROME'S MOST BEAUTIFUL PROSTITUTE. SHE MARRIED THE WEALTHY "TARUTIUS" AND AFTER HIS DEATH SHE DONATED HIS MONEY TO THE ROMAN PEOPLE...AND FOR THAT, THE PEOPLE REVERED AND CELEBRATED HER IN THE FESTIVAL OF THE" LARENTALIA" ON DECEMBER 23...THE LAST DAY OF THE "SATURNALIA. "

GODDESS? SACRED PROSTITUTE? SHE WOLF? WHATEVER MAY BE THOUGHT OF THE CONTRADICTORY STATEMENTS SURROUNDING "ACCA LAURENTIA," THUS MUCH SEEMS CLEAR...SHE WAS OF ETRUSCAN ORIGIN AND CONNECTED WITH THE WORSHIP OF THE "LARES", FROM WHICH HER NAME "LARENTIA" ITSELF SEEMS TO BE DERIVED. THIS APPEARS FURTHER FROM THE NUMBER OF HER SONS, WHICH ANSWERS TO THAT OF THE TWELVE COUNTRY "LARES, "AND FROM THE CIRCUMSTANCE THAT THE DAY SACRED TO HER WAS FOLLOWED BY ONE SACRED TO THE LARES.

Goddess Potina Image
POTINA is the Roman Goddess of a child's first drink. Just as Edusa looked after children as they ate their first solid foods after weaning, Potina watched over their first drink. The Romans placed great importance on infancy and early childhood, and had many deities devoted to this time, each with rule over a very specific aspect. Potina helped the child transition from suckling to drinking from a cup. Her name means "she of the act of drinking."

"BONA DEA "IS THE ROMAN GODDESS OF FERTILITY; SHE IS A VERY ANCIENT GODDESS, PERHAPS EVEN PREDATING VENUS AND APHRODITE. HER NAME MEANS "GOOD GODDESS". THE ROMANS ALSO CONSIDERED HER THE GODDESS OF CHASTITY. SHE IS OFTEN LINKED TO FAUNUS, THE FERTILITY GOD OF THE FIELDS, AND SHE HERSELF IS OFTEN CALLED FAUNA. WHEN SHE APPEARS TO HUMANS, IT IS SOMETIMES IN THE FORM OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN, AND OTHER TIMES, SHE MAY APPEAR IN THE FORM OF AN OLD WOMAN WITH POINTY EARS. THE SNAKE IS HER ATTRIBUTE.

SHE IS AN EARTH GODDESS WHO PROTECTS WOMEN AS THEY GO THROUGH THEIR CHANGES AND IS ALSO BELIEVED TO WATCH OVER THE VIRGINS. SHE IS ALSO A HEALING GODDESS AND THE SICK (WOMEN) WERE TENDED TO IN HER TEMPLE GARDEN; MEN WERE NOT ALLOWED. SHE IS SKILLED IN HERB LORE AND BLESSED WOMEN AND THE EARTH WITH FERTILITY.

HER TEMPLE IN ROME WAS SITUATED SLIGHTLY TO THE NORTH OF THE PRESENT CHURCH OF ST. CECILIA IN TRASTEVERA. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE NOW REMAINS LEFT, IT IS SAID THAT THE TEMPLE WAS DECORATED IN VINE BRANCHES AND OTHER PLANTS AND FLOWERS. A SACRED SERPENT SAT BESIDE THE GODDESS ON HER THRONE.

THE WORSHIP OF BONA DEA WAS PART OF A MYSTERY RELIGION WHICH IS RESTRICTED TO WOMEN. EVEN KNOWLEDGE OF HER NAMES IS WITHHELD FROM MEN. EVEN REPRESENTATIONS OF MEN AND BEASTS WERE REMOVED, AND AT THESE SECRET MEETINGS, IT WAS FORBIDDEN TO SPEAK THE WORDS "WINE" AND MYRTLE...BECAUSE, ACCORDING TO LEGEND, FAUNUS HAD ARRIVED HOME ONE DAY TO FIND THAT SHE HAD DRUNK AN ENTIRE JAR OF WINE. SO, FOR BEING DRUNK, HE BEAT HER WITH A MYRTLE BRANCH AND KILLED HER. WOMEN DID, HOWEVER, CONSUME WINE AT THE FESTIVAL, BUT SINCE THE WORD WAS OFFICIALLY TABOO FOR WOMEN, IT WAS CALLED 'MILK'.

HER FESTIVAL OCCURS ON MAY 1ST; IT WAS AT THIS TIME THAT A CEREMONY OPEN TO ALL THE WOMEN OF ROME WAS HELD IN HER TEMPLE ON THE AVENTINE. A SOW WAS SACRIFICED IN HER HONOR AT THIS TIME. THE CEREMONY WAS HELD AT NIGHT, AND THE RITUALS WERE CONDUCTED BY THE VESTALS.

"TODAY, MAY DAY, IS A DAY OF JOY AND CELEBRATION. DON A SPRING DRESS AND PUT FLOWERS IN YOUR HAIR. "

Mictlantecuhtle Cover
The god of the dead; he is a guardian and spirit guide. Mictlantecuhtli is ruler over Mictlan, the lowest underworld, the northern realm of the dead. Mictlantecuhtli's wife is Mictlancihuatl. He is associated with the spider, the owl and the bat.

To create life, Quetzalcoatl needed the bones from those that lived in the previous world, the Fourth Sun. First Mictlantecuhtli agreed but when Quetzalcoatl came to collect the bones Mictlantecuhtli changed his mind. Fortunately, Quetzalcoatl managed to escape. However, on his way back up he dropped some bones and broke some of them. This explains why humans have all different sizes.

Mictlantecuhtli is both the ruler of the tenth day, Itzcuintli (dog), and the tenth trecena, 1-Tecpatl (knife). He is Lord of the Day for days with number 6 ("chicuacen" in Nahuatl). He is the fifth Lord of the Night.

Goddess Lilith

Goddess Lilith Cover
"You gotta give it to Lilith
she was a hell of a woman
Said she'd rather
fuck demons on the beach
than lie under the belly
of that whiner Adam
& flew from Paradise - Jonelle Maison

Lilith, (also know as Lilit), was a relic of an early rabbinical attempt to assimilate the Sumero-Babylonian Goddess Belit-ili, or Belili, to Jewish mythology. To the Canaanites, Lilith was Baalat, the "Divine Lady". Hebraic tradition said Adam married Lilith because he grew tired of mating with animals, a common custom of Middle-Eastern herdsmen, though the Old Testament declared it a sin. Moslems were insistent on the male-superior sexual position and apparently Lilith was not Moslem, disagreed with Adam and flew away to the Red Sea.

God sent angels to bring Lilith back, but she refused to return. She supposedly spent her time mating with "demons" and gave birth to "a hundred children a day". (Busy woman!) So God had to produce Eve as Lilith's more docile replacement. Lilith became the "Great Mother" of settled tribes who resisted invasions of nomadic herdsmen represented by Adam. Early Hebrews disliked the Great Mother who is said to have drank the blood of Abel after he was slain by Cain.

Lilith's Red Sea was another version of Kali Ma's Ocean of Blood, which gave birth to all things. There may have been a connection between Lilith and the Etuscan divinity Leinth, who had no face and who waited at the gate of the underworld along with Eita and Persipnei, (Hades and Persephone) to receive the souls of the dead. The underworld gate was a yoni and a lily, which had no face. Admission into the underworld was often mythologized as a sexual union. The lily or lilu, (lotus) was the Great Mother's flower - yoni, whose title formed Lilith's name.

The story of Lilith disappeared from the Bible, but her daughters, the lilim, haunted men for over a thousand years. The lilim were thought responsible for nocturnal emissions and the Jews still made amulets to keep away the lilim well into the Middle Ages. Greeks adopted the lilim and called them, Lamiae, Empusae, or Daughters of Hecate. Christians also adopted them and called them harlots of hell or succubae. They believed that Lilith laughed every time a Christian man has a wet dream. The Daughters of Lilith were supposedly very beautiful and presumed to be so expert at lovemaking that after an experience with one, a man couldn't be content with a mere mortal woman.

Babylonian or Sumerian Moon Goddess, patroness of Witches, demon Goddess to the Jews and Christians, Lilith represents primal feminine sexuality. Lilith is the protectress of all pregnant women and of children and mothers. She is the Goddess of wisdom, regeneration, enticing sorcery, erotic dreams and feminine allure.

As the early pages of Genesis give two accounts of the creation of women, legend has it that Lilith was Adam's first wife. Lilith, like Adam, was created from the dust of the Earth and had been one of the wives of Satan (or so the myth goes). She left her husband for Adam, but refused to be subservient and submissive to him, saying that they were both created from the same Earth and thus were equals. They quarreled, she left and was forced into exile.

Her name stems from a Semitic root meaning "night", and in the Talmud, she is portrayed as a long-haired demon of the night. She is considered by many to be the first liberated woman.

SUGGESTED MANTRA: EQUALITY

The first feminist and liberationist, Lilith boldly instructs us to stand up for what we believe in, unbridled and courageous no matter what the cost.

SUGGESTED AFFIRMATIONS:

~ I forgive
~ I welcome forgiveness
~ I am free from judgement
~ I deserve to be free from guilt
~ I am creating the life I love
~ I am a forgiving and loving person
~ My vital energy resurfaces naturally
~ I am honest and truthful in all I say and do

This Sumerian and Hebrew goddess, once honored for her wisdom, freedom, courage, playfulness, passion, pleasure and sexuality in pre-2300 B.C., was portrayed as a demon by Levite priests at the dawn of patriarchy. In Western tradition, she was the original partner of Adam, created equally together in the image of Elohin (a word for "god", having feminine and masculine linguistic roots). Her liberationist attitude and assertive behavior was threatening to the emerging patriarchs, and led to her expulsion from Eden to be replaced by the more subservient Eve.

Proudly holding the rod and ring representing Sumerian royal authority, Lilith strives to make modern life equal for all people. She inspires us not to judge our opposite sex, to respect them as our equal, and to nurture equality in our environment.

Customarily women break loose on leap days, asking men out or proposing marriage. But, as the Year 2002 is not a leap year, celebrate a new season instead. As we cross into Autumn, start the new cycle by making a difference, making a new start, making it matter. Internalize Lilith's bravery and dignified strength of character, and make amends with anyone you've wronged with presupposition or prejudice. Or enjoy some daring activity to its fullest without fear or guilt - like Lilith, you are the master of your destiny. Only you can achieve liberation of your inner joy and exuberant passion for life.

Start it today!

Love and light, ~ Anita ~

Tyr  

Posted by Stella Clark

Tyr Cover
Tyr is the god of single combat, victory and heroic glory in Norse mythology, portrayed as a one-handed man. Corresponding names in other Germanic languages are Gothic Teiws, Old English Tiw and Old High German Ziu, all from Proto-Germanic.

Tyr also known as The Maimed God, was a lawful good greater deity of law and justice and part of The Triad. His dogma was primarily concerned with the punishment of wrong-doers, and the general furthering of law and good in the world. Not coincidentally, these values are among those held by most paladins, many of whom were more than likely to follow The Triad, as the patron of paladins Torm is one-third of the coalition.

The highly organized church of Tyr was strong in the more civilized lands of the Realms. They were known for never refusing service or aid to the faithful when they are in distress. To keep Tyr's favor, one must respect fallen enemies, never make sacrifice of a corpse, and keep one's alignment lawful good. Tyr considered slaying agents of evil to be honorable and worthy of the highest praise.

Papsukkal  

Posted by Stella Clark

Papsukkal Image
Papsukkal (or Pazuzu) is the messenger god in the Akkadian pantheon. He is identified in late Akkadian texts and is known chiefly from the Hellenistic period. His consort is Amasagnul, and he acts as both messenger and gatekeeper for the rest of the pantheon. A sanctuary, the E-akkil is identified from the Mesopotamian site of Mkish. He becomes syncretised from Ninshubur. He is the regent of the 10th month in the Babylonian calendar.

Pazuzu is often depicted as a combination of animal and human parts. He has the body of a man, the head of a lion or dog, eagle-like taloned feet, two pairs of wings, a scorpion's tail, and a serpentine penis. He is often depicted with his right hand pointing upward and his left hand downward. The position of the hands means respectively life and death (or creation and destruction). Although frequently regarded as a malevolent demon of the underworld, Pazuzu seems also to have played a beneficent role as a protector against pestilential winds (and particularly the south-west wind). Moreover, Pazuzu's association with Lamastu led to his employment as a force against her evil, forcing her back into the Underworld. Amulets of the demon Pazuzu (or simply of his head and face) were therefore often situated in houses or hung about the necks of pregnant women.

Omacatl and Quetzalcoatl were brothers.

Amun  

Posted by Stella Clark

Amun Cover
Amun, reconstructed Egyptian Yamanu (also spelled Amon, Amoun, Amen, and rarely Imen or Yamun, Greek Ammon, and Hammon), was a God in Egyptian mythology who in the form of Amun-Ra became the focus of the most complex system of theology in Ancient Egypt. Whilst remaining hypostatic deities, Amun represented the essential and hidden, whilst in Ra he represented revealed divinity. As the creator deity "par excellence", he was the champion of the poor and central to personal piety. Amun was self created, without mother and father, and during the New Kingdom he became the greatest expression of transcendental deity in Egyptian theology. He was not considered to be immanent within creation nor was creation seen as an extension of himself. Amun-Ra did not physically engender the universe. His position as King of Gods developed to the point of virtual monotheism where other Gods became manifestations of him. With Osiris, Amun-Ra is the most widely recorded of the Egyptian gods. He was also widely worshipped in the neighboring regions of Libya and Nubia.

Zipacna  

Posted by Stella Clark

Zipacna Cover
Zipacna was a son of Vucub Caquix (Seven Macaw) and Chimalmat. He and his brother, Cabrakan (Earthquake), were often considered demons. Zipacna, like his relatives, was said to be very arrogant and violent. Zipacna was characterized as a large caiman and often boasted to be the creator of the mountains. The Popol Vuh tells the story that one day Zipacna was basking on the beach when he was disturbed by the Four Hundred Boys (possibly patron deities of alcohol), who were attempting to construct a hut.

They had felled a large tree to use as the central supporting log, but were unable to lift it. Zipacna, being immensely strong, offered to carry the log for them, which he did. Although most translations of the Popol Vuh would seem to indicate this was done as a gesture of goodwill, it is generally agreed that Zipacna did so in a spirit of arrogance, mocking the boys for their inability to do so. The Four Hundred Boys decided it was not good that one man had such strength, and that Zipacna should be killed. They attempted to deceive Zipacna by asking him to dig a hole for their post, intending to thrust the massive column into the hole and kill him. Zipacna realized their deceit, however, and saved himself by surreptitiously digging a side tunnel and hiding inside it when the boys dropped the post in the hole.

To complete the illusion of his death, Zipacna cried out in pain, and later allowed ants to carry bits of his hair and trimmings from his nails out of the hole, satisfying the boys that he had been killed. On the third day after their apparent success, the Four Hundred Boys finished the construction of their hut and celebrated both its completion and Zipacna's death by preparing wine and engaging in a drunken revelry. Zipacna emerged from his hole after the boys had passed out, and with his massive strength he felled the column and caused the house to crash down upon the sleeping boys, killing the lot without a single survivor. After their death, the boys entered into the heavens as the open cluster known as the Pleiades. Hunahpu and Ixbalanque, the two divine Hero Twins, decided to exact revenge upon Zipacna for the death of the Four Hundred Boys; they also did so in a continuation of their quest to bring down the arrogant gods. The pair devised a scheme in which an elaborate fake crab was constructed and hid it deep in a canyon. They then sought out Zipacna along the beach, where he was hunting for his usual favourite food, crabs.

Zipacna was very hungry and had been unable to locate any crabs for his meal, and the pair informed him they had spotted a very large crab for the taking. They guided Zipacna to their trap, and being overcome with hunger, he was unable to see through the trick. Zipacna went in for the crab, and by means not specified by the Popol Vuh, a mountain was made to collapse or fall over on top of him, either killing him or turning him into stone. The account of Zipacna "entering" in search of the crab (which is specified to be a female), in particular his going in "on his back" on the second try, seems to be a parody of sexual intercourse. Indeed, it has been suggested by some interpretations of the Popol Vuh that it was Zipacna's lust and sexual appetite, not his hunger, that drove him to his doom.

Aganju  

Posted by Stella Clark

Aganju Cover
Aganju is the Orisha of volcanos, the wilderness, and the river. He is associated with Saint Christopher. As the third `Or`is`a said to have come to earth, Aganj'u is an `Or`is`a of great antiquity. Lukumi followers of this religion believe that Aganj'u is a force that, like the sun that is his symbol, is essential for growth, as well as a cultivator of civilizations. Like the volcano with which he is also associated, he forms the foundation upon which societies are built and is the catalyst for the production of vast amounts of wealth and commerce needed for advanced development. He is most highly regarded by Lukumi practitioners for his role in assisting humans in overcoming great physical as well as psychological barriers. Like the volcano, Aganj'u is noted for his legendary strength and his ability to bring about drastic change. His significance in Cuba in the past is most probably due in part to the fact that he was said to have delivered people out of bondage and helped one to carry the heaviest of burdens. Aganju is heavily associated with Shango, with some stating that he is Shango's father, if not at least his brother. Aganju has been associated with Oshun, with whom he had a relationship, as well as with Yemoja. He is associated with the shoulder and has a strong, powerful, and determined character. Being a recognised member of the deified royal family of old Oyo, he is considered "one heart" with Oya and is received by all of Shango, Oshun and Oya's followers.

He wore armor and weapons made of pure copper, which is his sacred metal, and it was said that he forged the Sword of God (Isten kardja) which was discovered by Attila the Hun and secured his rule. It was customary for the Magyars to sacrifice white stallions to him before a battle.

Zababa Cover
Zababa (also Zamama) was the Hittite way of writing the name of a war god, using Akkadian writing conventions. Most likely, this spelling represents the native Anatolian Hattian god [Wurunkatte Wurunkatte]. He is identified with the Akkadian god Ninurta. His Hurrian name was Astabis. In southern Mesopotamia, Zababa was the tutelary god of the city of Kish, whose sanctuary was the E-meteursag. Several ancient Mesopotamian kings were named in honor of Zababa, including Ur-Zababa of Kish (early patron of Sargon of Akkad) and Zababa-shumma-iddini (a 12th century BCE Kassite king of Babylon).

Tagroa Siria (God Above, or God the Highest in the Rotuman language) was the supreme deity in pre-Christian Rotuman society. He is understood to be the Rotuman interpretation of the pan-Pacific deity Tangaroa. In Rotuman mythology, he was said to live in 'Oroi ta (literally "the hidden", meaning the underworld-like spirit region), and was the most powerful of all the deities in the Rotuman pantheon. Like most faith systems at the time, his main role was as part of the fertility cult, ensuring the prosperity of the island and its people. First born sons in Rotuman families were tossed in the air as a dedication to Tagroa.

Solar Deity

Solar Deity Cover
A solar deity (also sun god) is a deity who represents the sun, or an aspect of it, usually by its perceived power and strength. Solar deities and sun worship can be found throughout most of recorded history in various forms. Hence, many beliefs have formed around this worship, such as the "missing sun" found in many cultures.

Turkish Yer Sub  

Posted by Stella Clark

Turkish Yer Sub Cover
The word Yer-Sub had two meanings. One was the name of a Goddess, the other the visible world, i.e., the Native Land. Yer-Sub existed in the middle of the Universe and Her residence was on Khangan Plato (specifically, on the Lanshan Mountain in Mongolia). This place was called 'The Otuken Homeland'. The Turks depicted Yer-Sub as a voluptuous, beautiful woman, who was patroness of the Homeland (Land-Water). Nature and all living beings were subordinate to her. Therefore, the Turks viewed Yer-Sub as the second highest deity, after Tengri. Yer-Sub is mentioned together with Tengri in the Orkhon Inscriptions, under the name Yduk Yer-Sub (Sacred Earth-Water). One of the records states: "Turkic Tengri and Turkic sacred Yer-Sub said in Heaven: ‘Let not the Turkic people vanish! Let them be a Nation!’" The ancient Turks called the visible world occupied by their people Yer-Sub (Land-Water) or Middle Earth, emphasising its central location. Each clan and tribe had their territory, the boundaries of which outlined their world. This Yer-Sub (Land-Water) was theirs, beyond which were others' possessions. Their own limited Yer-Sub was not just a settled space but also a smaller version of the world in general. For each clan, their land was the centre of the world and a focus of order and harmony. 'Native land' was not only a geographical concept, but was also a space that could be emotionally perceived by man. It was the land of the Clan and of the Ancestors and could never be sold or given away.

The dominant role in determining the fate of people and nations belonged to Tengri, but natural forces yielded to Yer-Sub. Sometimes on Tengri's command, Yer-Sub punished people for their sins. But she was generally considered a benevolent Goddess. To appease Yer-Sub, sacrifices were made every spring in preparation for the cattle-breeding season and before planting crops. Sacrifices were also conducted in the autumn, after the completion of the harvest. During the times of the Khaganates, sacrifices to Yer-Sub had a nation-wide character. They were conducted near rivers and on the banks of lakes. A reddish horse was sacrificed with appeals for the fertility of cattle and crops, and for general well being. With the disintegration of the ancient Turkic states, the rituals to Yer-Sub began to take on distinct local forms. As in ancient times, they were conducted in the upper rivulets and on the shores of lakes. White rams were sacrificed and hung on a tree, under which a prayer was conducted. After the ritual, participants feasted and exchanged gifts.

Tecciztecatl

Tecciztecatl Cover
In Aztec mythology, Tecciztecatl ("old moon god"; also Tecuciztecal, Tecuciztecatl) was a lunar deity, representing the old "man-on-the-moon". He could have been the sun god, but he feared the sun's fire, so Nanahuatzin became the sun god and Tecciztecatl (in the form of a rabbit) was promptly thrown into the moon. In some depictions he carried a large, white seashell on his back, representing the moon itself; in others he had butterfly wings. He was a son of Tlaloc and Chalchiuhtlicue.

The Charge Of The Goddess 1

The Charge Of The Goddess 1 Cover
Whenever ye have need of any thing, once in the month, and better it be when the moon is full, then shall ye assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of She, who is Queen of all witches. There shall ye assemble, ye who are fain to learn all sorcery, yet have not won its deepest secrets; to these will She teach things that are yet unknown. And ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that ye be really free, ye shall be naked in your rites; and ye shall dance, sing, feast, make music and love, all in Her praise. For Hers is the ecstasy of the spirit, and Hers also is joy on earth; for Her law is love unto all beings. Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever towards it; let naught stop you or turn you aside. For Hers is the secret door which opens upon the land of youth and Hers is the cup of wine of life, and the cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the Holy Grail of immortality. She is the gracious goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man. Upon earth, She gave the knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death, She gives peace and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor does She demand sacrifice, for behold, She is the mother of all living, and Her love is poured out upon the earth.

She who is the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire of the heart of man, calls unto thy soul. Arise, and come unto Her. For She is the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe, from Her all things proceed, and unto Her all things must return; and before Her face, beloved of gods and men, let thine innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite. Let Her worship be within the heart that rejoiceth; for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are Her rituals. And therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you. And thou who thinkest to seek Her, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not unless thou knowest the mystery; that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, then thou wilt never find it without thee. For behold, She has been with thee from the beginning; and She is that which is attained at the end of desire.

Ruaumoko

Ruaumoko Cover
Ruaumoko (also known as Ruamoko) is the youngest son of Rangi and Papa, god of volcanoes and seasons. He has never been born and remains inside his mother's womb. His movements are considered the cause of earthquakes. These earthquakes in turn are responsible for the change of seasons. Depending on the time of year, the earthquakes cause the warmth, or cold, of Mother Earth to come to the surface of the land, resulting in the warming, or cooling of the Earth. In other forms of Maori mythology, Ruaumoko was born and clung to Mother Papa's breast until he fell into the Underworld. There, when he walked he created earthquakes in the upper-world. He is also known as husband of Hine Titama', the goddess of death and a daughter of Tane.

Greek Goddess Artemis  

Posted by Stella Clark

Greek Goddess Artemis Image
Whew! I knew she had more epithets than any other Goddess I have seen (I've been collecting them for the past year--there are 291 listed here), but I didn't know it was because she had asked Papa Zeus to make it that way!

ARTEMIS is the Greek Goddess of the hunt, forests, and childbirth. While she herself was a virgin Goddess, Artemis was closely associated with the birth process from a very young age--immediately after she was born, she assisted her mother Leto, Goddess of motherhood, in the birth of her twin brother, Apollo. The births were painless for Leto, and thereafter Artemis was called on by women in labor to ease their pain. She also watched over infants, both human and animal, until they were weaned. She then became the protector of female children, as Apollo was the protector of male children. In an apparent contradiction, it was also Artemis who brought sudden death to infants, girls, and women, just as Apollo did the same with boys and men, and while she protected infant animals, she was also the Goddess of hunting.

As a young girl, Artemis asked her father Zeus to grant her several wishes: that she could remain a virgin forever; that she have more names than her brother, Apollo (see her epithets below); that she could carry a bow and arrows; that she be attended by nymphs; that she should rule over the mountains; and that she have hounds to hunt with and deer to pull her chariot. Zeus granted all of her wishes, and also gave her dominion over harbors. Other areas of life that came to be ruled by Artemis include the dawn, frost, virginity, healing, the Amazons, and rabies.

Artemis was known for having quite a temper, and for guarding those she loved with great zeal. When Queen Niobe boasted that she was a better mother than Artemis and Apollo's mother Leto because she had seven times as many children, the twins shot down all of her children with their arrows. Aktaion, a hunter, was unfortunate enough to happen on Artemis while she was bathing. She turned him into a stag and caused his hounds to turn on and eat him.

Artemis was later seen as part of a trinity with Selene, Goddess of the moon, and Hekate, Goddess of magic. This may be due to the introduction to Greece of the Thracian Goddess Bendis, who ruled over wild animals, the moon, and magic. She was also identified with various Goddess from other parts of the world, including the Egyptian Bast and the Phrygian Kybele. It is through her identification with this last Goddess that the most famous temple to Artemis, the temple at Ephesus, came to be built. The statue, Lady of Ephesus, often identified as Artemis, is more likely to be a depiction of Kybele. The objects hanging around her neck have long been thought to be breasts or even bull testes, but they have recently been identified as representing amber beads.

Artemis' name means "uninjured" or "healthy," and since she is one of the oldest known and most widely worshipped of the Greek Goddesses, she had many epithets associated with her. Some were commonly used; others were used only in particular areas. In general, the epithets refer to her rule over animals or childbirth:
