Artemis: Goddess of the Hunt, Bearer of Strength

Hey, been having a dream the last few nights of being some sort of forest spirit/goddess with deer horns the hold like space and stars, it has come out of literally nowhere people reffered to me a couple of times as Diana or another name which I cant remember at the moment… could this mean anything or is it just random? (it feels different from other dream aspects to me.)

If intuitively it feels different, than it probably IS always go with your gut first instinct! It never fails. What came up for me was Artemis which is technically the Greek equivalent of Diana. Although they are both different people. I see this as you are embodying an Archetypal figure! A powerful symbol to have in a dream.

Artemis: Goddess of the Hunt, Forests and Hills, the Moon, Archery
“In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis (Ancient Greek: Ἄρτεμις) was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the huntwild animalswildernesschildbirthvirginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth.” ~ wiki

I always see Artemis as a Bearer of Strength. Vitality. lover of Nature, Birth, The Divine Virgin.

I really love this site interpretation:

Virgin Goddess : The virgin goddess represent the independent, active, non-relationship aspects of the female psyche.

Artemis was the most powerful goddess in the Greek culture. She represented the Supreme Mother herself in all her four stages of Maiden, Mother, Matriarch and Crone. She was also revered as the Dark Goddess of the Blood Mysteries of Birth and Death. Under the patriarchal reign she was split off into various aspects and Artemis herself was depicted as an innocent nature loving sylph and not the Amazon that she was.

Archetypal Roles : Sisterhood, Amazon, A woman who is complete unto herself and who does not need a relationship to define herself. She is the positive warrior (Amazon) in the heroic woman’s journey. She was patroness of midwives (a midwife is symbolic of the stage in the archetypal journey of supporting others into giving birth to their own lives)

Artemis is a personification of an independent feminine spirit. Her archetype enables women to seek her own goals on terrain of her own choosing.She is the pure feminine; an Amazon warrior who does not need to define herself in relation to another.

As a virgin goddess she is immune to falling in love. She was not abducted nor raped (as opposed to Persephone) and she was never half of a husband-wife pair. She represents independence and self-confidence and the knowing that she can take care of herself. She does not need masculine approval. Her identity and sense of worth is based on who she is and what she does and not whom she is married to.

She is goal-focused and this archetype gives women the ability to concentrate intensely on whatever is important to her and to be undistracted from her course, either by the needs of others or by competition of others.

She has ‘moonlight vision’. Her dreams speak to her and she has the ability to focus inward.[ref]http://shaman-shewhoknows.blogspot.com/2011/02/artemis-virgin-goddess-archetype.html[/ref]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is always a reason Archetypes visit us in our dreams, does any of the above resonate with you? Artemis is speaking to you and visiting you as a guide on your path. When goddesses are speaking to us there is an inner part of us we need to see and acknowledge witin ourselves. What do you need strength for? Are you looking for independence? Are you in need of more nature? Are you in a place of finding your own feet on the ground? etc. Artemis is a true power of Strength and Endurance. Listen to her and she will help guide you on your path.

hope this helps you!
