Today is exactly two years that I become single and this is the longest I have been single since I was 15 which is half a lifetime ago. Lately Artemis the chaste moon Goddess has been “following” me around. While I know drawing on her strength and female independence is what I need at this time, I do feel a little awkward “worshipping” her. Not only becomes I’m so far from being chaste I’m on a completely different page, but the fact that she is not part of my pantheon seems “wrong”. The first equivalent I though of was Arianrhod, who women draw on for female power, and also sex and fertility magick. However, her harsh treatment of her son Llew, makes me a little uncomfortable and as I already “worship” Bloduewedd who also hurt Llew maybe “worshipping” Arianrhod as well may cause Llew to “hate” me. I’m sure that when I found the strength I will know.
