Goddess Meditation - Day 7

Fortuna - Goddess Knowledge Cards (Artwork by Susan Boulet & Text by Michael Babcock) Posted by Picasa

"The Roman goddess Fortuna was the same as an earlier Italian goddess who presided over the earth's abundance & controlled the destiny of all human beings. Her name, derived from Vortumna, "she who turns the year about", came to symbolize the capriciousness of life & luck, the vagaries of fate as the wheel of life turns around. Her festival was celebrated in October. Fortuna gives us a way to approach the ups & downs of life, a perspective that can offer us some equanimity as we proceed on our journey."
