...an oil painting of the Goddess Elemental Union, the Fifth Element, the Miracle of Transformation....by Jonathon Earl Bowser

Phoebe was one of the Titans, daughter of Uranus and Gaea. She was married to her brother Coeus, with whom she had Asteria (the starry one) and Leto. The Olympians Apollo and Artemis, twin siblings, were the children of Leto; thus, they were often referred to as Phoebus and Phoebe respectively, taking their alternative names from their grandmother. Phoebe was associated with the moon and the Oracle of Delphi, and was considered to be the goddess of prophecy.....

The Armenian Goddess Astghig has had a long and varied career. In the earliest times we know of her she was the Goddess of Fertility and Love. Later, she also became the Goddess of Sky and Stars. Towards the end of the polytheistic period, She became the Goddess of Love, Maidenly Beauty, Water Sources and Springs. Busy Goddess!

The Goddess is the archetype that provides transcendent experience, a re-connecting with source, and nurturing of divine essence. Hers is a mystery, an incalculable delving into the void—out of which all things come—the unknowable deep abyss that is Love.
