Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and Beauty
Beauty can be both a blessing and a curse depending on how you are using your gift. You can enchant, inspire and amaze but at the same time you can destroy cities, create wars or bring your own destruction. Helen of Troy had a whole war created for her, Narcissus was obsessed with his own beauty that led to his end. Beauty will help you spark desire, it will never make someone love you. It is your personality and your other gifts that can create that magic.
Ares: God of War
Every day our life can be full with fights. Remember that not all our experiences are necessary gained with war. We decide to make peace with ourselves and the world the moment we realise that true strength comes from within. A stronger a person is the less energy they need to spend to have their will manifested.
Apollo: God of the Sun, Sports and Arts
The sweetness of life is all around you. Enjoy the light and the daily blessings. The Universe is a world of endless possibilities and infinite pleasure. Let music be your guide that will heal your soul and help you express your inner self.
Artemis: Goddess of the Moon, Hunting and Wild Life
The night is a blessing, there is no need to be afraid of the dark. The stars and Moon are always surrounding you leading your way even in your darkest moments. Respect yourself and respect others. Bring your fears in the light and let them heal.
Athena: Goddess of Wisdom
Wisdom is acquired through your daily experience, it is not in books and nobody can transfer it to you. You may find yourself learning a lot from small things, whatever you may find boring and not important can help you acquire wisdom when you look it from a different prism. Remind yourself that you have the capacity to be wise and don’t let the words of other mislead you.
Demeter: Goddess of all Nature
The Earth Mother wants you to enjoy her blessing of abundance in our world. Remind yourself that there is plenty for everyone. Enjoy nature and nurture your body, mind and spirit. Respect Mother Earth and you will gain her respect and blessings in return. Get out for a walk and attune with the marvels of nature.
Dionysus: God of mysteries, harvest and Entertainment
Surrender yourself and let go. Leave the stresses of life behind and have some fun that you so well deserve. Everything is so much easier when you feel relaxed. Drink, dance and enjoy! Getting away from what troubles you is healing your troubles and your anxiety.
Hades: God of the Underworld
Let go of your fear of death. It comes for all men and women, irrespectively if they have been good or bad. Death makes no discrimination and we may not be in the best position to understand this mystery of life. Death is peace and resolution. In a world without endings, there are only beginnings.
Hephaestus: God of Creativity and Craftsmanship
Reveal your artistic and creative talents. Whatever you can make with your hands is a blessing. You are reminded that the only obstacle that does not allow you to be creative is yourself. Pursue a path where your gifts and talents are appreciated and honoured, first of all by yourself.
Hera: Queen of the Gods
Family is a great gift but always remember that you don’t have to be bound by it. If your family is supportive, loving and caring then you have been blessed. Remember even if your family is not ideal, love them for who they are but always remember to love yourself. You will never fail when whatever you do is out of love.
Hermes: God of Communication, Commerce and Intelligence
Express your inner world. Talk to others about all the amazing things that are happening in your head. Communicate freely and openly. Travel around the world and create new experiences for you, that is the best way to broaden your mind. Experience everything that life has to offer .
Hestia: Goddess of Family & Hearth
Home is where your heart is. It can be in a place, or in a person, this magnificent feeling to feel at peace, protected and taken care of. Your home is your base, you return to recharge your batteries and restart. Always remember to show hospitality and keep the real hearth, your heart, warm and cosy for yourself and the world.
Poseidon: God of Seas, Rives, Lakes and all Waters
Feel the beauty and the ferocity of the ocean, the Great Sea that no one knows what is hidden in its great depths. The Sea is a great place to recharge your energy and let go of anything unwanted. Also remember, that your mind is like the sea. Your conscious mind is what can be seen on its surface, but your subconscious hides the mysteries sitting at the bottom of the Ocean.
Zeus: King of the Gods
True power comes from the Self. Try to impose it to others and you will find that fear is born. Be the role model for others, inspire and guide them. Gaining power should not be the goal but instead the outcome of developing and understanding yourself. Treat everybody as equal as you are all connected and walking together. Do not forget that you are human as well.
