Feminine Power From the Past

Every goddess of ancient mythology has their own unique traits and attributes – Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of Love, associated with romance and sensuality, while the Roman goddess Juno is associated with protection, marriage, childbirth and youth.

Like the unique and varying goddesses of different cultures and times, each zodiac sign also possesses certain characteristics and even correlates with the fantasy-filled lore of ancient gods and goddesses.

This correlation is sometimes very direct – the Roman goddess, Venus, is directly linked to the planet and therefore to Taurus and Libra, as the planet Venus rules over these signs.

We live in a time where we're learning more and more about and celebrating the inherent power, beauty and grace of femininity – and it's also a period where more people are becoming open to ancient, mystical practices such as astrology.

It’s only natural to explore the symbiotic relationship that exists between these two subjects!

To honor our ancient goddesses, the power of femininity and the wisdom of astrology, this guide will highlight each zodiac sign and the beautiful goddess that represents it.

What Ancient Goddess Are You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

Earth Signs

Capricorn

Ruled by the element of Earth, this sign is associated with nature and balance, much like the goddess Persephone. Persephone is the Goddess of Spring, and she was born from the love between the god who ruled the underworld, Hades, and the goddess of the harvest, Demeter.

Meditating on this goddess can help your embrace your rooted nature and enhance your mental clarity and focus.

Taurus

Earth sign Taureans are grounded and practical, yet their connection to the planet Venus gives them a refined taste and an appreciation for beauty. Venus is the planet of love, and Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love. Aphrodite encourages you to embrace your interests and your ability to enjoy all aspects of life.

Allow her energy to inspire you toward building the life you’ve always wanted, full of art, beauty and love. Aphrodite also encourages positivity and problem solving.

Virgo

Virgo is a stable and responsible earth sign closely associated with the mystical goddess, White Buffalo Calf Woman, who hails from the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe of Native North America. White Buffalo Calf Woman was a proponent of conservation and respect for the planet, corresponding to the naturally resourceful nature of Virgo.

Allow this goddess to help you tap into your tree-hugging, Earth-saving personality, encouraging you to connect more with the world around you.

Air Signs

Aquarius

Aquarians are ruled by air, and as such, their sign is related to innovation, intellect and wit, much like the Slavic Goddess, Dodola. Dodola is the goddess of air and wind and presides over the realm of the mind.

It is said that this goddess created rain inadvertently when she was busy inventing her heavenly creatures, which in turn promoted an energy of invention and inspiration. During dry weather, when precipitation is needed, Dodola is called upon and asked to bless the land with water – akin to the imagination and creativity this goddess provides for the spirit.

Gemini

Geminis are ruled by air, and their personalities are intellectual and bubbly. Quick-witted and outgoing, you are best represented by the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Iris. Iris acts as a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms, encouraging you to connect you mind, body and spirit as one.

Learning more about and meditating on Iris will help you learn to move fluidly through realms, embracing both the spiritual and physical aspects of life. Allow Iris to bring you closer to your most enlightened self.

Libra

Libras are ruled by the planet Venus and are best represented by the goddess of the same name. Venus is the Roman goddess of beauty and love, and she urges you to embrace the part of yourself that most earnestly seeks harmony.

Venus would not settle for less than a beautiful, balanced environment, and she urges you to seek the same. Allow her loving presence to urge you toward new, exciting friendships and aesthetically-pleasing surrounding.

Water Signs

Pisces

Ruled by water, Pisces is a sign that represents emotion, intuition, psychic ability and creativity. The dreamy goddess Yemaya is the perfect representation of this sign, as she glides through the water and rules over the sea.

Yemaya represents the mystical aspects of femininity, and she is known as the Mother of the Sea. This oceanic representation of womanhood will inspire you toward emotional depth and creativity.

Cancer

Cancers are a beautifully emotional water sign with an inherent sense of understanding the needs of others. Like Hathor, the Egyptian goddess of fertility, love and entertainment, Cancers know how to make their loved ones comfortable.

Hathor represents your love for music, joy and camaraderie – you are a master at putting others before yourself. However, this goddess also encourages you to acknowledge, respect and take care of your own needs.

Scorpio

Scorpios are perhaps the most mysterious of the water signs, concerned with otherworldly matters and ethereal concerns. Selket, the Egyptian goddess of scorpions, is the goddess most closely related to the Scorpio aura.

This goddess is known for her ability to help people transition from one realm to another, a symbol of Scorpios’ ability to reach other worlds, emotionally. Selket is connected to life, death, sex and transformation and will help you connect more deeply to your feelings about these matters.

Fire Signs

Aries

Aries are the passionate fire signs who emit a zest for life that is hard to ignore. It’s safe to say that their energy is aggressive, even when they don’t necessarily intend it to be, like the Nordic goddess Freya.

A warrior princess, Freya represents power and strength in femininity, and she’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Meditate on this goddess to unleash the courage to protect yourself that exists naturally within the Aries’ composition.

Leo

Optimistic and friendly, Leos are a fire sign that always seem to have a good time. You know how to make people smile, and you don’t mind if you get a little attention in the process! The goddess that best represents your personality is the Greek goddess of the dawn, Eos.

Like the rising sun, Eos is symbolic of your shining personality and ability to light up a room. Allow Eos to encourage you to embrace your warm personality and share it with others.

Sagittarius

Sagittarians are the fire sign that seems eternally optimistic and concerned with spiritual matters. Your sign is closely related to Rhiannon, the Welsh goddess of the fairies, whose ethereal nature made her feel out of place in this world.

Rhiannon is connected to the Moon and rules over spirituality and philosophy. Despite the judgment she received from others, this goddess carried on – and she encourages you to continue on your path, regardless of what anyone else says!

Don't Be Afraid to Embrace Your Inner Goddess!

Learning more about your goddess and her experiences can give you insight into your own personality and help you discover more about how to get the most out of life. Meditate on your goddess, draw or paint her figure and write about the things you like most regarding her nature.

Pretty soon, you’ll find that her most amazing qualities have become your own! This is a great resource website if you want to discover more stories from our feminine past.
