You scored 25% Persephone
If you exemplify the qualities of Persephone, you have most likely experienced great loss in your life — the loss of your health or your emotional or physical security, the betrayal of a friend or lover, the loss of a child, your own divorce or that of your parents. This experience has forced you to face the dark, unenlightened side of yourself (the side that blames other people or circumstances for your own suffering) and transform yourself into a stronger, more independent, more accepting and more loving person. It may have also led you down a spiritual path, and moved you to place great emphasis on inner calm and on close connections with friends. You are capable of embracing, integrating and accepting difficult experiences. Because of that skill, you offer others the gift of empathy — you know where they are or have been.
Ok, this is interesting given the past few months. I have transformed myself and faced down a few demons as well. I no longer require approval to be who I am. I no longer hold back when I think someone or something is bullshit. Yes, it’s been painful, but it’s been very worth it. I see my life as it is now and compare it to the anxious, obsessive person I have been and I know I am climbing to that higher spot. My spirituality is very dear to me… some might call it a crutch… still others ” that Wicca crap”. I call it mine.
You scored 25% Hestia
If you embody the qualities of Hestia, you understand the value of having your own sacred place, whether it’s an actual room or simply a time of day when you free your mind of busy thoughts and experience peace of mind. There’s no doubt this place is at home — where you feel the most joy. Home is your sanctuary. You are at home with yourself wherever you are, though, and no matter whom you are with. You know that the meaning of your life springs from your spiritual center. This brings you a great sense of security. You do not crave attention or material possessions; you nurture your friends and family with your unconditional love.
Oh this is SO true! My side of our room is in such need of a major cleaning. Dynomite might fix it. Order brings joy. I need to do a few more things there.
You scored 16.7% Athena
If you are ruled by Athena, you are bright-eyed, shrewd, resourceful and inventive. With friends, you are the wise counselor — always ready with an empowering message. You are believe strongly that women can accomplish anything men can. No wonder you put so much time into your career. Athena women tend to be ruled by their head, not by their heart. You carefully guard your intimate side, protecting your emotions and vulnerability. If you want to awaken your unexpressed womanliness, you’ll have to use the same passion you apply to your intellectual achievements. It’s important that you work to integrate your strong masculine side with your feminine side — bringing together your strength with your vulnerability, your creativity with caring, your intelligence with imagination. Otherwise, you risk coming off as unaffectionate and self-righteous. Take lessons from the goddesses Hestia and Aphrodite to do this. See Week One of our Become a Love Goddess in 30 Days Love Lesson for suggestions.
Sometimes I do come off as a hardass… I could work on that. I just get so damned tired of whiners and victims. Maybe if we get rid of them first? LOL! Ok ok… vulnerability… it’s a thought!
You scored 16.7% Demeter
If you fit the Demeter archetype, you are a nurturer and caretaker. You have a generous heart and enjoy extending your love to others. You are motivated by the most powerful of instincts — to give life — and selflessly devote yourself to the life you create. You feel compelled to care for all those around you, even if they are not your own children. In short, you feel the need to be all things to all people and, therefore, your own needs sometimes go unmet. You must learn to say no, and apply Artemis’s sense of boundaries and Aphrodite’s ability to put herself first. That way, you can give to others from an overflowing rather than a half-full cup. To learn how to incorporate the qualities of these goddesses into your life, follow Weeks One and Two of our Become a Love Goddess in 30 Days Love Lesson.
Oh I have learned to say “no”. I do encourage my friends to be who they can be. I have one who is embarking on a new business. She is going to be fabulous at this. I told her yesterday that she was BORN to this job. I really believe that. I had a motto when I was a sales team manager… “Believe them to be who you see them to be”. I try to believe in the best for people until they convince me that they only see things one way. Then I forget them. Don’t need that kind of energy in my life.
You scored 8.3% Artemis
If you are ruled by Artemis, your independent spirit belongs to no one but yourself. Your body is vibrant, your attitude robust and your manner vigorous and alive. You are driven by physical rather than mental energy. You feel complete without a man in your life and would never compromise your essential nature for a romantic partner. You are skilled at establishing personal boundaries and enter into relationships on your own terms — in short, you can take care of yourself. This attitude may at times put men off. But if what you’re looking for is an equal, loving relationship, take some tips from Hera in Week Four of our Become a Love Goddess in 30 Days Love Lesson.
Ok, a bit low on the Artemis side, which makes sense. I like having M in my life. I like being able to lean on him and also to nurture and support him.
You scored 8.3% Aphrodite
If you are ruled mostly by Aphrodite, your femininity and passionate spirit are the controlling forces in your life. You tend to be charismatic and self-assured, comfortable with your body and unrestrained sexually. Men are drawn to you like bees to flowers, which satisfies your erotic nature. However, you tend not to form permanent attachments with lovers because you value your sexual freedom, which may leave you feeling lonely and even depleted once a relationship ends. To find and form a more lasting relationship, you need to add more of the goddess Hera to your life. Check out Week Four of our Become a Love Goddess in 30 Days Love Lesson for how-to’s.
LOLOLOLOL! I guess I need to weed the garden!
