Which Goddess are You?

Take the quiz here. Perhaps not too surprisingly, I am:

Athena's brilliance of reason was said to be as penetrating as her clear gray eyes. One of the most powerful of the gods and goddesses, her artistry in all crafts, especially weaving and pottery, was unrivaled. Goddesses with similar attributes include Sarasvati, Sophia and Brigit.

Well, I don't know about pottery! But I can weave words.

This is a lovely image from Kris Waldherr's tarot deck which you can see online.

It seems I am...the mighty Isis.

The story of Isis illustrates the transformative powers of sorrow to create wisdom. When she was separated from her husband Osiris, she searched for him everywhere; she used the power of her love to bring him back to life and conceive a child of him, Horus. Isis was worshiped in ancient Egypt as the great mother goddess of the universe. Goddesses with similar attributes include Kuan Yin, Tara and Oya.

I don't think that quiz was for me.

Oh, come on, Crispy! It tells us soooo much about you. We'll look to find Kaitlin approaching godhood roasting in your fireplace and Krista in a dozen pieces menaced by crocodiles --

Or not!

Holy Hera--i'm Juno! ;)

Wow! I'm Athena!

If it was more wide-spread, I think I would be Hecate! heh...

That similar attributes are found in Brigit is no surprise. I look to Brigit and keep her on my alter.

We wise women gotta hang together, right? Hail, Hecate!

Glad to see TjZ has a feminine side too.

Hmmm. It is widely known that dipping one's daughter head-first into snowbanks is a stepping stone to bolder crimes against kith and kin.

On the other hand, I'll have you know that just yesterday Kaitlin gave me the prestigious and long-coveted "Father of the Year Award" (tm) without reservation or prejudice, after my stellar presentation on Greek myth to the entire sixth grade at Corinth MS.

(And this after her Social Studies teacher, who invited me, for Chrissake, failed to provide for any of my audiovisual requests. If anyone's alligatored remains need roasting, his do.)
