Greek Goddess of Wilderness : Artemis




Wazzup Pilipinas!

ARTEMIS was the great Olympian goddess of hunting, wilderness and wild animals. Artemis was really Apollo's brother and described as the relation between a husband and wife so seldom it was said that it was Artemis was Apollo's wife. Artemis was like Apollo's female counterpart, armed with bow n arrows and sends death and plague among men, women and animals. She was beaten by Goddess Hera in a contest of gods during the Trojan War. She tricked the Aloadai Giants to kill each other who were planning to storm the Olympus.

I chose Artemis because she can show a resemblance on me or vice versa. I am a possessive person and I get upset or disappointed especially when people don’t follow my instructions whenever I lead.
Artemis was protective of her purity and was conservative of herself like the rest of her sisters. She gave grave punishment to any man who attempted to dishonor her in any form. Actaeon, while out hunting, accidentally came upon Artemis and her nymphs, who bathing naked in a secluded pool. Seeing them in all their naked beauty, the stunned Actaeon stopped and gazed at them, but when Artemis saw him ogling them, she transformed him into a stag. Then, incensed with disgust, she set Actaeon’s own hounds upon him. They chased and killed what they thought was another stag, but it was their master.

  1. Artemis is my favorite Goddess. She's my favorite because of her being conservative. She shows a good example of how a lady should act. Good article :)
