Why I’m an Athena

By Gray Eyed Athena @grayeyedowl

If you’ve ever wanted to read up on (and take the quiz) for your goddess archetype, you should give it a try!  Here’s the link.  And if you’re interested in seeing the other archetypes and their descriptions, go here.

Athena has been my goddess archetype for years and I’ve always had an infatuation with her and her myths while reading massive amounts of Greek and Roman stories.  From Goddess Meca, here is the description of my archetype:

Athena is your main archetype.  Goddess of war and wisdom, domestic crafts, and writing. Plato believed her name meant “mind of God” whilst others suggest it comes an ancient word meaning “sharp.” Both these words point to Athena’s great intellectual ability to see the true nature of a situation and to develop successful strategies. If Athena is your archetype, then logic is your forte but on certain occasions you may lack the kind of empathy Persephone has in abundance.

Athena’s superior intelligence, means this archetype has a tendency towards arrogance and can be judgemental of others.

As an ambitious woman, you  are capable of scaling the career ladder; – especially in the areas of business and the law. An independent nature means you shy away from opening up in relationships.  Men, however may view you as intimidating, aloof and judgemental even if the outer show is in some cases a cover for hypersensitivity.  Some of you may find relationships with the opposite sex difficult, often attracting men who wish to lean on you.

Because logic is your forte, you may be inclined to think along straight lines (left brained logic).  Life however demands resilience from us and a need to constantly change our thoughts and ideals in the way nature and society constantly changes. Athena could learn from the two Goddesses of love; Demeter’s maternal love and Aphrodite’s sensual love.”
