ARTEMIS Devotional Candle
“ Moon of a thousand faces
Of which one is Artemis,
Of the Hunt: She who’s limbs are white
As chalk; Uncaught; much-sought; a seeker
Yourself:through the wild wood, heeled
By a hundred shadow-hounds: Yes, You
Bow-Bender, Shaft-Fitter, Feather Slicker,
Deer Slayer. No prayer
Hear you, but that from a maiden’s lips,
And the red froth coughed
By a heart-struck stag. Short skirt;
Ungirt; half-glimpsed; never kissed: your lips
Part only to see the hart that flies not knowing
It’s already slain. “ Hekataeon
With a humbled heart I present to you the next addition to the devotional candle line-up. Artemis is not a deity I usually work with so I was surprised when this work dropped in as the last Sotiera candles were being crafted. Throughout their creation over the past lunar cycle, I have come to understand Her as protector. I can feel her energy within me as protector of my own daughters. I find her epitaph of disease bringer and healer of such very interesting and absolutely not coincidental. As we more and more turn to natural medicines in our day to day lives, particularly right now, these are Her teachings and guidances being remembered as She teaches the green mysteries.
Under the bent bow of the waxing moon, these candles are blessed in Her name. To be placed upon your altar and incorporated in your rituals when her presence is desired and her favour is sought.
