Astraea- Goddess of Innocence and Justice
When Astraea returns to Earth one day from her place as the constellation Virgo in the night sky, she will once again bring the utopia that was during the Golden Age, bringing an end to human suffering. The flourshing of humanity is the true guide to morality.
Blue- I know who I am
From the acknowledgement of my favorite color to accepting the complex structure of my lived experiences, I know what I feel and what I need. This is my truth...... what are you pretending not to know?
Hypatia- Mathmatician and philosopher
“Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.”
Hypatia (c. 350)
Gaia- Earth Mother
“ The earth is what we all have in common” it is the tether that holds us together. It will be our home, until it is not. The universe doesn't care what we do to it, what we destroy, what we waste. We are the keepers of our future and only we can save ourselves.
