Greek/Roman / Queen of Witches
Strong, lovely and charismatic,
Aradia is the daughter of moon goddess Diana. She is a timeless spiritual
entity, embodying Kore in her power, Aphrodite in her beauty, and Diana in her
courage and love of wild places.
She was sent to Earth as prophetess of the religion of witchcraft, with the
mission of protecting women from the oppressions of feudalism. With her
broomstave of power, her cloak of mystery, and her knowledge of every plant,
Aradia taught women how to invoke the full moon at midnight, sprinkling salt
from a red bag while asking favors of the Goddess. With quiet authority she
proclaims "Never Again the Burning!" A small pentacle adorns the
reverse of Aradia's cloak-hem.
