Artemis (as called by the ancient Greeks- the Romans called this Goddess by the name Diana) has been a recent fascination of mine since I relocated from the city out to the countryside.

Artemis is a deity of the woods- she represents the dual nature of both the creatures of the forest and those that hunt them. She is a symbol of the cycle of life and death- the beauty and cruelty of the world. Like a wild animal, she can be kind and gracious to those under Her protection or devastingly destructive to those that cross Her path
Artemis/Diana is a defender of young women and also a protector of witches:
In my process of learning about Artemis, I found a lovely video by one of my favorite artists Lindsey Stirling and couldn’t resist sharing it here.
Whether you have an interest in Artemis/Diana, are a fan of epic violin music, or just love a good song- I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
For those who want to learn about this fascinating Goddess, here are a few more resources on Artemis/Diana:
By Artemis’ grace, may every shot you take strike true
For every fall you take, may you rise again anew
As hunter or prey, caught in the cycle of life-
By Her protection, may you live without strife
