There is so much to love about Athena. In greek mythology the founding myth of Athens is told to be based on Athena beating Poseidon in a competition over patronage as she created the first olive tree hence Athens being named after her. She was the master strategist. She was also wise. Known for her brilliant mind, she was not only a craftswoman, creating they say the first spider weaved from her defeated opponent Arachne, but as legend also tells, she was born from the head of her father Zeus, and sat alongside him with much of the decision making in Olympus.
Her very name is derived from the meaning of mind and intelligence and she used it well. Known for her wisdom and ability to strategise she helped many a warrior to win battle. If that isn't enough, further scholars have deduced that her name is of the elements earth, air, ether and the moon, making her a symbol of all things essential to man. This is a Goddess to stand alongside and mimic her moves for she had all the skills required for greatness of life. You can look no further for a Goddess that creates her own pathway, who blends all things, creates her journey for us to behold and become.
