Happy Moon’s day, Starshines!
I have started a new type of astrology, Goddess Celestial Messages. We have some powerful Goddesses that are in our celestial heavens that have a lot of messages to give us. These Messages will be called Arianrhod’s Celestial Messages. So for today…..
Today in Arianrhod’s celestial heavens, we are having 2 Goddesses having a conversation with each other, Juno is squaring Athena. Now to understand their placement, let us first look at what these two Goddesses represent.
Juno, often thought of as the Roman version of the Greek Goddess Hera, is considered the Goddess of love and marriage. Juno was the wife of Jupiter, his counterpart, was the protector of the Romans and a special counselor of the state. Her father is Saturn, Father of Time himself, and the Mother of Mars, Vulcan, Juventas, and Bellona. She was so important to the Romans she was a member of the Capitoline triad of deities that were introduced by Etruscan kings.
Athena is known as the Greek Goddess of war and wisdom, as well as her strategic skills in war and is the patron Goddess to heroic actions; She is portrayed to walk side by side being the companion to heroes. Athena has an interesting beginning, as she was born from Zeus’ forehead after he had been experiencing a tremendous headache. The myth states that she sprang fully grown and dressed in armor.
These are two protectresses and when they square each other there is a bit of tension, Juno, the mother, is in the sign of cancer, the mother nurturer and Athena, the warrior Goddess, is in the sign of Libra which is about balance.
Arianrhod’s message for the next two days as these Goddesses form the exact square on the 15th is that “One can not give from an empty vessel”. Being a nurturer doesn’t mean you have to always put yourself or your needs on the back-burner, especially for those that do not appreciate or have gratitude for all that you do. Athena tells us to protect yourself, sure there will never be a true balance, but we can strive for the middle. This is also a message of protecting those things we love and care for, and this can be people as well.
