Curiosity from mythology
To be able to love, work, be sensual and creative, every woman needs the influence of goddesses belonging to these three categories. The first group of goddesses you will meet in this book are the virgin goddesses: Artemis, Athena, and Hestia. Artemis (called Diana by the Romans) was the goddess of the hunt and the moon. She lived in the wild forests. She was the archer who never missed and the protector of all newborns and young creatures.
Athena (Minerva for the Romans) was the goddess of wisdom and handicraft, the patroness of Athens, the city of her name, and the protector of many heroes. Usually she was portrayed in full armor because she was considered an expert in military strategy. Hestia is the goddess of the hearth (with the Romans of Vesta), but the least known of all the gods of Olympus. It was present at homes and temples as fire. Virgin goddesses in the psyche of women represent the independent, as a self-sufficient element.
Unlike other inhabitants of Olympus, the three goddesses were not inclined to fall in love. Their emotional ties did not distract them from what they considered to be important. They were not victims of violence. They didn’t suffer. As archetypes, they express a woman’s need for autonomy and the ability to focus on what is personally important to women.
