Greek Deity Sheet - Athena
A new way to interact with Pagan Gods. A page for your Book of Shadows dedicated to a specific deity. Each page comes with an attached parchment envelope filled with a torn and charred piece of parchment paper. Write a letter to your god or goddess and place it inside the envelope. You can also add herbs, crystals, or any other magical tool as an offering to your god or goddess. Add your hair or fingernail clippings to the envelope to merge your energy with the deity.
To be true to the ancient culture, I did a lot of research on each deity and I added the most appropriate symbols to their pages. The back of the page has the aged background, but it is blank so you can add even more facts and/or pictures of your deity.
Athena: Warrior goddess of protection, war and wisdom. Call on her if you are having problems with someone at work. Her symbols are the spear and shield. She is the daughter of Zeus and Metis.
The picture comes from Achilles and Penthesella on the Plain of Troy, with Athena, Aphrodite and Eros.
A copy of an Ancient Greek coin dedicated to Athena has been added to the tip of the envelope like a wax and seal. This silver coin comes from Athens c. 455-449 BCE.
A prayer for each deity has been translated into Greek. In English the prayer reads:
Athena, shining war-maid, goddess of wisdom.
I pray to you. Give me eyes to see truth.
Give me strength to hold fast.
I ask of you clarity, quick wit and quick action.
This double sided Parchment Paper pages have been mounted onto a three hole punched backing. It is ready to be added to your Adjustable Book of Shadows. I invented them because I wanted scrapbook pages free from plastic sheet protectors. The pages are all 8 ½ by 11 inches. The 3 holes have been punched into an extra ½ inch strip on the side of the page. They look like pages of a regular book in a tightly bound scrapbook because you can’t see the bindings at all. They make a wonderful crisp sound as you turn the pages. The pages are printed onto brand new Ivory Parchment Paper but look aged. All mounted page come with frayed edges and are coffee stained. Your Book of Shadows will look like an old family heirloom.
