Irene, Goddess of Peace and Spring

May 18, 2015 , , , , , ,

There are several goddesses involved in different aspects of peace.  Spring was a season in ancient Greece associated with military campaigns, therefore a time when peace was hard to achieve. Irene is a daughter of Zeus and Themis, one of the Horai. Along with her sisters she rules natural timing and seasons. Her season is Spring. She is a peace goddess who guards the gates of Mount Olympus. Conscious clear peace is a result of coming into alignment with Divine Time.  Peace and harmony are results of staying in tune with natural rhythm and seasonal harvests.

As mistress of timing and peace Irene is a natural diplomat.  She has the skills and power to negotiate differences between sides to reach solutions. Her symbols, Herme’s staff, corn and the infant Ploutus, represent wealth and abundance.  In times of peace prosperity can flourish and progress can be made.  Now, as in ancient times, war is devastating to both civil and economic success. In personal ways we can employ the wisdom of Irene to bring more peace into our existence.  Take note of the phases of the moon, the seasonal changes around you, and the longer cycles of global warming and dramatic weather.  You don’t have to be a farmer to feel the power of nature’s timekeeping.  How do you fit into the seasons, Gentle Reader?

I’ve never really fitted into much – I do have a sister called Irene – but she doesn’t like the name – she is now Rene. Thank you for the thought-provoking (as always) words – Graeme:)

My father used to sing Goodnight Irene a lot. Thank you for visiting from so far across the sea…

Goodnight Irene was covered by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band in the 1970s – also a great version (your father’s version has the closeness of kin to enrich it) g:)

I feel as though I am Spring/Summer/Fall gal. My sun sign is Cancer, my Rising is Pisces and my moon sign is Scorpio. All water… and all in those seasons. Interesting. — And by the way Pamela… someone needs to pay a visit to the Ms. Cheevious blog, because a certain someone won a prize. 🙂
