Card of the day: ATHENA- Goddess of Wisdom
Brilliance. Reason. Independence. Be independent. Listen to the wisdom within yourself.
(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)
Athena, the daughter of Greek god Zeus and God first wife Metis, was born fully clothed and fully armor-clad, emerging from her father’s head. Such unusual circumstance of birth primed Athena for her devotion to wisdom and art. She managed to avoid the romantic intrigues of the gods and goddesses. Although she is associated with war, she used her reason over force to outwit her enemies. She is also an artisan.
Her primary physical attribute are her bright grey eyes which suggest clarity of purpose. Just as Athena was borne of Zeus’ head, so must we all hold wisdom in our brains. Athena encourages us to think for ourselves independently.
“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” — Anonymous, “The Bhagavad Gita”
