In Juno lies the invitation to commit to our relationships as mirrors towards wholeness - to let them show us where we contract, where we act and react unconsciously from fear, where our walls stand, where we manipulate to meet our needs, where our passion lies. To do this even when it's uncomfortable to see and because it asks us to be more Love.
She asks us to come back to greater wholeness within to experience more expansive Love and Union in relationship.

In Demeter lies the invitation to recognize that when we feel we have lost ourselves, when the meaning has drained from the surface of our lives, some part of us has gone underground in incubation.

She asks us to honor the nature cycles within that allow us to rebirth again and again into Living more of who we are.

In Athena lies the invitation to recognize that wherever we have armored ourselves to remain safe, we have severed ourselves from something even more powerful and innately wise in our innateness.

Her story is being keeper of the most sacred flame and 'whole onto herself', knowing her body was once a sacred conduit to the divine.
In Vesta lies the invitation to recognize the divinity of our deepest desires and hold as holy the vow with Self. And to reintegrate that it's the deep knowing within our feminine bodies that guides us back to our sacred fire again and again.
She asks us to honor the fire that burns within and our bodies as sacred and sexual and creative channels of divinity.
Each myth holds the power of energies alive within us, both validating our experience and extending invitations towards healing and growth.
