The pix is of Athena, my birth Goddess!

Every woman is Goddess! Our inner consciousness connects with different Goddess attributes at different times at work or play, in the mornings or evenings and through moon cycles. Each Goddess brings her essential energy to energize us through each stage. When we recognize and harness the Goddess energy that is working within, we have successfully reconnected with our own Inner Goddess.

In the beginning, women were acknowledged and revered as the spiritual keepers - pregnant women especially were enshrined, the gift of life being a sacred mystery. Every culture globally knew and accepted the loving rule of the Goddesses. Modern women are now "remembering" their rightful place in the world... you are too - after all you're here at this site.

Your natural-born attributes can be attributed to an ancient Goddess whose energy prevailed at the time of your birth. Just like astrology, Goddess energy defines who you are and what your life purpose may be.

Take this quick test (http://www.igoddess.com/GoddessBirthSigns/) to find out who your birth Goddess is ... then list your birth Goddess in your bio for your swap partner to create a birth Goddess doll for you, using the pattern here: http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html (make sure to use the goddess pattern).

Do some research on your partner's birth Goddess, explore, delve deeper and then, for some fun, make a Goddess-Doll for her to guide her & remind her of her Goddess-like qualities - in the new year.

RULES (even though I hate them) Rating of 4.5 or better, with NO no sends in the past six months. Go ahead and message me if you’ve been rated unfairly at any point or have a good reason for your lower rating or the no sends, and we’ll talk. I’m certainly open to listening - as I understand LIFE HAPPENS!

Newbies allowed, but with filled out profiles please by the time you are signing up.

Communication is key. If you’re going to be late with the swap, let your partner know. If your partner tells you he/she is going to be late, and keeps up the communication, give him/her a break. Sometimes things come up that just can’t be helped. Life happens!

I reserve the right to ban anyone that I think might be a problem. This means people that I've noticed have a history of rating unfairly, nastiness, etc. I believe in playing nice & fairly.

ENJOY, Have FUN - after-all, this is a HOBBY . . and HOBBIES are supposed to give you joy & happiness!!!!!!!!

Ruthy 10/24/2008 #

I believe the last one but without the fins

tinnuwen 10/24/2008 #

You have the best swap ideas, I have to say. :) My Birth Goddess is Venus. :)

And I'd also say it's the 3rd pattern - just without the fins. :) There's an example of that one further down on the webpage. :)

CherylLaVon 10/24/2008 #

What a NEAT swap! My Birth Goddess is Hestia.

If you like to lay low and stay out of trouble, your ruling goddess is probably Hestia - she only wants an uncomplicated, enriching and contented life.

hehehe yep that's me!

CherylLaVon 10/24/2008 #

If anyone of you live close to Massachusettes and/or Vermont, my friend and mentor, Wind Hughes (www.windhughes.com) is doing an East Coast tour November 20-23. Contact me for more info, I am also her booking agent! World reknown, singer & songwriter, Kellianna will also be appearing with Wind on November 22nd in Vermont.(www.kellianna.com)

The Sacred Wheel arises out of the Earth and the collective level of symbols and truths that mirror for us the transcendent nature of spirit.

Many cultures use the powerful teachings of the Wheel and the knowledge that Quantum Natural Laws of Creation are reflected there. This workshop will explore the Sacred Wheel as a mirror for living in alignment with spirit and our highest nature. The most esoteric Quantum teachings are presented through the understanding of: The directions, seasons & cycles, color, animal spirits, moon cycles, archetypal stages of life, and the spirit as the transcendent center of all things. The understanding of how these teachings are used in ritual and ceremony is an important aspect of this work and will be used to create a sacred container for this workshop.

LaTosi 10/26/2008 #

Hi Lady"T", thanks for the welcome =) My birth Goddess is Hathor.This swap is great,can't wait till we get our partners!YAY!

BastCrystal 10/26/2008 #

Hey LaTosi: my birth Goddess is also Hathor. :-) This is really cool, I've always been interested in Hathor and now I know why. :-)

LaTosi 10/26/2008 #

I'm just starting to learn about the Goddess more and more,it amazes me when I can really identify with one.Especially like Hathor,like you said,now I know why.

needlewings 10/28/2008 #

My goddess is Bast. I guess I could have figured that one out since I have 7 cats. lol

ukstash 10/28/2008 #

I'm Bast too, goddess of play. I like it.

LadyT 10/30/2008 #

adoptacritter 11/ 1/2008 #

I am Rhiannon. :)

AwtemNymf 11/ 8/2008 #

As of today- I checked and it says Error on Webpage.... It says something to the effect that it's a "Reported Attack" site?? Must be my computer settings. But anyone getting this as of 11-08-08 ?? :O( ~A~

ForsakenxVoices 11/10/2008 #

I'm getting that same message AwtemNymf. Is there possibly another site?

LadyT 11/10/2008 #

Hmmm - I just cut and pasted the URL and I got right to the site. Today is 11/10/08. Can you try again?

ForsakenxVoices 11/10/2008 #

It comes up as a reported attack site. I looked to see more about it and it says that it's a danger to your computer and personal information and some stuff like that.

LadyT 11/11/2008 #

Its a Goddess site I've used many times and never gotten that message - you don't have to enter any personal info to sue it, but I know there are trojans and spyware, etc. that can obtain info that has been on your computer. I'm sorry for any issues - I guess I would just try to avoid using it if you get the error messages - I never have?

MissMayhem 11/11/2008 #

Birth Goddess Sign the test is at the almost very bottom of the page. It will tell you who your birth goddess is then you can go to her list of goddesses.

LadyT 11/13/2008 #

Thank you Goddesses!

CajunLady 11/13/2008 #

after much research aside from the website provided, I've found that my birth goddess is Sophia. There are several days in February that have celebrations for Her and Her different incarnations. Here and here are 2 websites with more info about Her.

Ceinwyn 11/14/2008 #

Apparently my goddess would be Hestia. This seems to be a great theme for a swap :o)

ForsakenxVoices 11/14/2008 #

My Goddess would be Oshun.

mythomia 11/15/2008 #

My Goddess is Rhiannon, and I did identify with these affirmations:

I ask and therefore I receive; I welcome change in my life; My goals are becoming manifest. And the gems: cat's eye, ruby and moonstone. I have always liked those.

Great swap!

LadyT 11/15/2008 #

By Ceridwen Dulac

The Goddess speaks in rushing rivers, smoothing boulders with infinite patience in tumbling streams, giggling as pebbles tickle underneath in crashing waves, sucking greedily on coastlines in pools deep and unfathomable, silent in their stillness in ocean and brook, lake and waterfall, in life sustaining water.

The Goddess speaks in towering trees, majestic pine and redwood, fragile sapling in red-brown soil, newly ploughed, fertile and waiting in monstrous mountain, rugged peaks amongst the clouds in checkerboard land, patched like an oversized quilt in rock and cave, crag and dale, desert dry and arid in life sustaining earth.

The Goddess speaks in whistling winds hurtling through branches without care in gentle breezes stirring the air with faintest breath in gusts and bursts, merrily catching leaves, making them dance in stillness, barely there, caressing the cheek with softest touch in hurricane and whirlwind, Chinook and storm in life sustaining air.

The Goddess speaks in flaming firelight, spiraling upwards, sparking with glee in ravaging inferno, terrorizing the night, taking all in its path in hearth fire, warming the body with gentle heat in sunshine's burning rays, gilding limbs with gold in cook fire and sunlight, bonfire and sparks in life sustaining fire.

The Goddess speaks, WHO is listening? I wonder, who really hears?

alifromourpatch 11/15/2008 #

My birth Goddess is Rhiannon

Here are some links on her:-

kizmet 11/16/2008 #

My birth Goddess is Pele

Jul 24 - Aug 23 ...PELE... The bright and fiery Pele is the Hawaiian goddess whose spirit dwells inside the largest active volcano in Hawaii. Full of passionate energy, Pele gals love being the centre of attention and the life of the party. Their well developed ego is a mask, however, for the nagging feeling that their energy is being misdirected. They work so hard for the attention and admiration from other people, they allow flattery to interfere with their otherwise balanced judgement. Pele-inspired women should cut their losses and work to channel their energy in a more rewarding way.

More about her

crstarlette 11/16/2008 #

My goddess is Diana. :)

needlewings 11/17/2008 #

Wiley, Your Juno is on her way to you! She was a pleasure to do:)

LadyT 11/17/2008 #

Wow, you are fast needlewings!!!!

LadyT 11/17/2008 #

ANGEL NEEDED It seems that @Wiley is a flaker, also known as @AuntieM Both are partially suspended.

Her swap partner for this swap is Ceinwyn . .anyone wanting and able to angel this for her? If so, please post and or let me know ASAP. Thanks

ForsakenxVoices 11/17/2008 #

I'll do it!!

LadyT 11/17/2008 #

So sorry needlewings - but no good deed goes un-noticed!!!.

LadyT 11/17/2008 #

ForsakenxVoices has graciousley agreed to ANGEL for Ceinwyn.

THANK YOU Goddess ForsakenxVoices!

Ceinwyn 11/19/2008 #

Thanks ForsakenxVoices for angeling this one ! And needlewing, your Juno goddess was awesome ! Maybe it will make AuntieM/Wiley/Motox/OregonMeadow reconsider her actions and stop exploiting those around her !

LadyT 11/24/2008 #

We are affected by different goddess energies at different times of the day, year, and even moon cycle. But at our core, our goddess sign defines how we manage our choices and destinies. No matter what the situation, understanding your goddess sign is one way to ensure you get through each day smiling.

Mar 21 - Apr 20 ... ATHENA... Powerful and zesty Athena is the beautiful warrior queen who stood guard over the ancient city of Athens. Born leaders, Athena-inspired women know no fear, or that's the face they present to the world at least. They experience trouble with self-expression, resorting to politics and force to coerce a project off the ground. They can be tough, independent, clever and resourceful women, but they should not be afraid to ask for help if they need it, and more importantly, allow people to help them.

Do this: Wear a light blue stone such as Lapis Lazuli around your neck to help you find your voice.

Apr 21 - May 21 ...JUNO... Comfort, warmth and material security are the things that keep devoted wife Juno happy. Prepared to go to any lengths to protect their relationships, Juno-inspired women fight for the elements they want and deserve in order to preserve and enrich the home environment. They sometimes show an inclination for revenge on anyone who threatens the stable union or home life. Instead of feeling threatened by outside influences, Juno-women should instead strengthen the relationship from within themselves, focussing on loyalty, fidelity, intimacy, inter-dependence and mutual respect.

Do this: Repeat this affirmation: I am secure, safe, and open to love.

May 22 - Jun 21 ...PERSEPHONE...Vital and intelligent Persephone, erstwhile professional victim, was the innocent girl that was kidnapped to the underworld by Hades (yes, but was it really kidnap? Well, maybe, at first). Persephone-girls tend to be fickle, meaning "yes" when they say "no". They secretly enjoy being the scapegoat and having their life in a shambles, and won't do anything about it while they are really waiting for a rescuer to swoop in and save them. Persephone-girls should stop playing the drama queen and come up from the underworld - it is time to stop luxuriating in guilt and try honesty on for size.

Do this: Practise saying "yes", and meaning it.

Jun 22 - Jul 23 ...DIANA... Powerful and protective, Diana is the Roman goddess of nature, fertility, children, providence and harvest. Finely tuned to their environment and the feelings of others, Diana-inspired women are hunted for their natural empathy and sensitivity. Deep down though, they want escape. They hunger for more than their daily routine, but can't see their way past their busy lifestyle. Commitments and responsibilities make an escape (and "time out") seem like an impossible dream. Diana-women should take time to look after their own need for love instead of always giving it away to others.

Do this: Take a stroll in a place with nature and pick up anything that catches your eye. Whether it's a stone or a feather, keep it with you to keep you grounded.

Jul 24 - Aug 23 ...PELE... The bright and fiery Pele is the Hawaiian goddess whose spirit dwells inside the largest active volcano in Hawaii. Full of passionate energy, Pele gals love being the centre of attention and the life of the party. Their well developed ego is a mask, however, for the nagging feeling that their energy is being misdirected. They work so hard for the attention and admiration from other people, they allow flattery to interfere with their otherwise balanced judgement. Pele-inspired women should cut their losses and work to channel their energy in a more rewarding way.

Do this: Stare at a yellow stone and visualise what you really want to happen. Repeat this until it becomes habit, and habit becomes manifested reality.

Aug 24 - Sep 23 ...HESTIA...Goddess of household abundance and well-being, Hestia energises the home with a welcoming energy, healthy food and comfort. As such, she is a creature of habit and organisation, purity, sincerity, sanctity and safety. But just as the ancient goddess Hestia is depicted in a pose of immobility, so too are her women immobilised by their own habits and need for organisation - simply, they may feel like they are "stuck in a rut." Their convictions keep them so absorbed in their work, they can't imagine living any other way. They need to ask themselves, "What's the self-sacrifice for?" and break from their obsessive patterns.

Do this: Think of something spontaneous and daring. Take that leap of faith, and just do it.

Sep 24 - Oct 23 ...VENUS... The perfect lover, Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty. She rules over a woman's sense of style and her appreciation for acts of love, pleasure and romance. Venus-born women find it difficult not to walk with a sassy step as they search for heady relationships, friendships and social acceptance. In their quest for perfection they are prone to self-criticism, forgetting the aura they exude is the aura they attract. And though they are insightful leaders, they can blur the line between business and pleasure, which can result in diminished professional success. Venus women should revel in their playful character and strong personality, but keep it appropriate to each situation.

Do this: Be a magnet for positive energy and smile at everyone today.

Oct 24 - Nov 22 ...BAST... Archetypal goddess of protection, Bast (also known as Bastet or Basthet) is the Egyptian cat-headed goddess. It is no surprise therefore that she bestows qualities of playfulness, poise and feline sensuality. Bast-inspired gals are creative, inquisitive and have a fine sense of where their boundaries lie. The downside, however, is that they are quick to bare their claws against a perceived threat or injustice.

Do this: Tell others what you really think, but with words that heal rather than bite.

Nov 23 - Dec 21 ...RHIANNON... A maiden of ethereal beauty, Rhiannon was the Welsh goddess of fertility and rebirth, transformation, wisdom, and magic. She was born with the first moonrise, embedding her with an inner urge for adventure and travel. As such, she rode her unearthly white mare between this world and the Underworld to satisfy her thirst for discovery. Rhiannon-inspired women can be so focussed on the horizon, they forget about being sensitive to those around them. They could learn a little tact occasionally, and anticipate others' needs rather than waiting for them to ask.

Do this: Identify someone who needs your help, and assist them without thought of payment or thanks.

Dec 22 - Jan 20 ...DEMETER ...In Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of the harvest. When her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, Demeter's search took her on the path of poverty, abuse and eventually madness. It is typical of Demeter-inspired women to put the perceived needs of others first, at the expense of their own well being. They aspire to champion a cause in spectacular style, but tend to "smother" (as opposed to "mother") the project they feel responsible for. They are better off ignoring their ingrained sense of frugality and self sacrifice and concentrate instead on cultivating things that make them happiest - children, herbs, or a comfortable home, for example.

Do this: Burnout is not your goal. Carry rose quartz to give some love back to yourself.

Jan 21 - Feb 19 ...HATHOR... Patron of dancers, mother of the gypsies, Hathor is the ancient Queen of Heaven. Hathor-inspired women have the gift of shape-shifting - the ability to transform themselves from a woman crippled with anxiety to a creature shining with light and radiance. In fact, it is a gift they use often in their quest for reinvention. They are constantly seeking new and fresh inspiration, which does not always sit well with more grounded people. With each new manifestation, they need to spare a thought for those they leave behind - not everyone is flexible with changing natures.

Do this: List five personality traits that you want to be remembered for when you die. Then live them, every day.

Feb 20 - Mar 20 ... OSHUN... Mother of rivers and the bloodstream, Oshun is the Nigerian goddess of universal love and sensuality. Oshun women are as flexible and predictable as the tides, being generous with their time for themselves during an "ebb", and for others during a "flow". They "go with the flow" of their instincts in order to find inner tranquility, but can lose sight of the real world in doing so. Sometimes it would be healthy for them stop drifting along without direction or intent, and instead to find a place where they can simply be.

Do this: Float on a still lake or pool but keep one foot anchored on the edge.

CajunLady asked a GOOD question: What is the medium for the Goddess Dolls? First of all, I apologize that it was not clear . . . my thought was paper or similar . . so paper, cardboard, wallpaper, matboard or the like. Hope this hleps and you're having fun creating.

LadyT 12/ 6/2008 #

IF you've already begun in another medium, by all means continue.

Who am I to interrupt creativity!!!!!
