The Dianic Goddess
Daughter of the Moon. Queen of the Witches.
Strong, lovely and charismatic, Aradia (her name is derived from Herodias, queen of witches) was 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, she gave fright to the Inquisition. 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!" Note the small pentacle on reverse of Aradia's cloak-hem.
