Yup, Indian godesses.

I tend to use the term aboriginal to talk about first nations/metis and "native Americans"

Ahh, Kali, the black Goddess. I will see what Windwalker writes than add anything I can.

there are a lot of hindu Goddess including Shakti, Rhada, Sita, Durga and so on.

Some of the gods (Shiva in particular) have strong feminine sides, almost half female.

Why apologise? We are happy for it. That means there is alot to learn


They have an occult store here where I live, I love this store, it awesome anyway, I found a stone there I had never heard of before, it's called the Shiva stone, they are shaped like eggs, and are a 2 tone brown color. I was really drawn too it. I have a piece of paper with info on it, I'll see if I can find it and post it here. it was so awesome

How about Eireen? Or Pax as she would be known in Rome?

Someone choose one before I decide to start looking again. :roll:

I still wanna do that Goddess of Streams as soon as I'm not sick, and have a bit of time. :lol:

I love either of the choices offered though. I love the Greek and Roman myths, they're my favourite! :-D

Isis would be another good one to do!

Dana would be great as well.

Ooh, yes there's a lot of information about Isis, it would be good to have an 'Aset for beginners' thread :lol:

Tara is interesting too (either Celtic or Buddhist Tara!)

Does any one want to step up to the challenge and write a report? I would write one, but I did week 2 and I've got a lot of coursework on right now :-D

I didn't know there was a Celtic Tara, I was totally thinking of the Buddhist one.

I think either one would be a good topic.

Well, there's the Hill of Tara in Ireland, I always thought there was a Goddess associated with it? Could be wrong though!

Eireen or Pax is the goddess of Peace. She sits on my altar with the loving words, "There is no need to worry, as everything is working out beautifully."

As for Celtic Hill of Tara, it translates into "Hill of Kings" (Teamhair na Rí). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hill_of_Tara This is a good site for some historical information.

Looks like this idea died a death :s It would be good to resurrect it though!
