Invocation to the Goddess Artemis

Hail Artemis,

You who possess the power of the she-bear
The carefree nature of the doe
The trembling nostrils of the riding horse!

Deliver to us your knowledge of physical strength,
your passion for independence
and your ability to protect the most feminine aspect of yourself from encroachment or invasion.

Help us to remember that silence, solitude and separation are as much our birthright as our willingness to love outside of ourselves.

May your arrow remind us of both our ability to hit our mark and our commitment to slay that which does not serves us.

We thank you for you powers, Artemis.

Be here now!
