Joining the fray
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:21:12 am »
Good morning all!

I'm Athe, and I'm a SAHM/student living with my fiance and our daughter in Norfolk, UK.  I started life as a christian, but stopped going to church when I was 18 or so.  Since then I had never really thought about religion, until Lil Bit was born and I stopped work.  Then I had lots of time on my hands!
I always had an interest in astrology, tarot and spirituality from a young age, so I started looking more into those.  Then, one morning I woke up with a strong image of a woodland cottage in my head, and a name firmly entrenched: Hestia.
I investigated the name, and discovered Hestia, Greek goddess of the hearth.  The more I learned, the more it seemed familiar, so I set up a small altar, and asked if she was really calling me.

Since then I ask for help/reassurance from several of the Greek goddesses, as I feel their presence.  At the moment, Hestia appeared to have taken a back seat to Athena, while my OU course is ongoing.
Sadly, currently my altar is severely lacking, since we moved in my ILs' house in October, and the house is still 60% full of their stuff!!  Thus the house is cramped, disorganised and peace is nowhere to be found!  I have managed this week to set up a small altar in the kitchen for Hestia, and a tiny space in my bedroom as a general altar and thankfully they don't seem to have minded waiting for their space!

I hope to pick up many ideas, and join in friendly discussions here.  I know there's still a lot I have to learn, especially with regards to astrology and tarot, and I can see that this will be a great place to learn!

When in doubt, observe and ask questions. When certain, observe at length and ask many more questions.
