Moon Days: Artemis

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Welcome back to Moon Day. I am going to share with you a little info about the Moon Goddess Artemis. Artemis has always been near and dear to my heart, so you might hear me talk about Her a lot!

Artemis is a maiden Goddess of the Moon. Her phases are typically the new and waxing moon. She is the Greek Goddess of the hunt, wild things, protectress of women, and a completely independent spirit. I was so drawn to Her in my early college years because in that chapter of my life I was transitioning into an independent young woman and finding my own voice. If you are drawn to Her it may be because you are going through something similar.

Ways to connect with Artemis are (and what I have done before):

  • Take a nature walk. Ask Artemis to bless your walk and help you connect with nature and see what happens! Journal about your experience.
  • Stay in the moment. Whenever I felt I was worrying too much and not being present, I would  focus on my breath and notice what was going on with me physically. Where I was holding tension or what was in pain. I would ask Artemis to guide me and I just felt more connected to me in the present and it felt so much better.
  • Stay active. Honoring your body and staying healthy is a huge deal with Artemis. She put Herself and needs first and was known for Her physical prowess. This is so hard for me! I am so not in touch with myself physically, and my root chakra is super under-active, so Artemis really helps to motivate and empower me! Before I do any physical exercise, I ask Artemis to bless my workout! The Warrior poses in yoga is a great way to connect with Her!
These are just a few ways to connect with Her. Remember, I like S.I.M.P.L.E and down-to-earth ways to connect with the Sacred. If you have any questions feel free to comment!

Love and Blessings,
