Get to Know a Goddess: Part 4

November 22nd: Leucothea

Happy Birthday Sagittarius Babies! Sagittarius is the centurion archer who represents harmonious mingling of the physical and spiritual living. Saggitarians tend to have a strong drive for justice, much like the goddess Leucothea.

Leucothea is a Greek goddess. The word Leucothea translates to “milk-white goddess”, alluding to her maternal nature. According to mythology, Leucothea was the mother of centaurs, and wet nurse for the famous Dionysus. In more recent times she is depicted as a sea goddess with art work presenting her as a mermaid. Telesco (author of 365 Goddess, the inspiration and resource for this post) explains that through this transformation “we see the mingling of the spiritual nature (water) with that of the earth (half-human appearance) to create Sagittarius’s customary energies.”.

Celebrating Leucothea

Include milk or milk product in your diet today to consume a bit of Leucothea’s maternal nature or invoke her spiritual balance into your life. Wearing white is a way to figuratively don her power.

Ask Leucothea for help with personal transformation, especially those that encourage personal comfort and tranquility, while taking a salt water or milk bath.

I’m a mother, an artist, writer, professional Tarot reader and a witch! I‘m ordained through the Universal Life Church, so I am Reverend Amanda- which makes me feel special and more myself than ever. I’ve had a difficult past, but becoming Pagan and a witch has turned my life around. My blog posts are about a range of topics — always witchy related and always in support of one on the path towards self sovereignty. In addition to being a blogger, I write for Witch Way Magazine (I write the Pagan parenting column, Raising Little Witchlings, as well as contribute an assortment of articles regularly.)
