Because of her creation of the stars, Varda was the dearest of the Valar to the elves, who called to her for aid from Middle-earth. The Valar are divine beings below a greater, more ultimate Creator, Ilúvatar. Thus some equate the Valar of Middle-earth with saints and angels; thus Varda, in her role as the most loved and prayed-to Vala, may be an equivalent of the Virgin Mary in Tolkien's own Catholic faith.
Artemis (Diana), daughter of Zeus and Leto, twin of Apollo. She is the lady of the wild things, huntsman of the gods, protector of the young. Like Apollo she hunts with silver arrows. She's also associated with the moon. She's known as the the virgin goddess and the goddess of chastity. She also presides over childbirth, which goes back to causing Leto no pain when she was born. The cypress is her tree. All wild animals are sacred to her, especially the deer.
“Míriel was the name of his mother, who was called Serindë, because of her surpassing skill in weaving and needlework; for her hands were more skilled to fineness than any hands even among the Noldor.” Míriel Þerindë - @thefeanarion Photographer - @houkakyou
The Greek goddess Hecate reminds us of the importance of change, helping us to release the past, especially those things that are hindering our growth, and to accept change and transitions. She sometimes asks us to let go of what is familiar, safe, and secure and to travel to the scary places of the soul.
