I have really come to admire this Goddess, Nemesis.
Also known by Rhamnousia or Rhamnusia and was sometimes called Adrasteia, probably meaning “one from whom there is no escape”.
Further meaning to one of her many names, “To give what is due…” the Greek word Nemein meaning, related to Nemesis.
Nemesis is the Greek Goddess of vengeance and retribution, personification of divine wrath.
It’s hazy on whom her parents were but Oceanus is listed throughout many platforms as being her father. She has as attributes a measuring rod, a bridle, scales, a sword and a scourge.
The Goddess Nemesis not only weighs the bad but she also weighs the good. She knows that it is possible in having too much of a good thing and when whomever has manipulated it.
I believe in retribution. I know that might make some cringe but I don’t personally follow the three fold law. I’m not sure where I am at with Karma either. The Divine, Source, our Celestial family, they work hard all the time. Between guiding us as humans, giving us life lessons… I believe that sometimes Source needs a break. I believe that some things that need to be addressed in the moment, get overlooked. I wish the justice system in the US was indeed a justice system. It fails us. It fails victims, it fails the wrongly accused, it fails those whom made a mistake and genuinely want to change their lives.
But could humans as a species be entrusted with taking their definition of justice into their own hands? Hah, I’ll leave that for everyone to decide for themselves.
I honor Goddess Nemesis and what she stands for. I’ve dealt with many injustices in my life and have seen people live without any punishment to fit the bill. I am going to try and find some more information on her from the library or another source offline before I start trying to contact her spirit and embark on honoring her in my practice.
