Goddess Awareness Week 2018!
This event was launched by erin Dragonsong (Wicca-Spirituality.com) in 2017, and began with 7 primaeval Goddesses (click here for GAW 2017
You may recall that there is little we know about such prehistoric Goddesses beyond educated guess and speculation. The very earliest evidence of Goddesses, as introduced in Goddess Awareness Week 2017, the only information on them is what we can deduce.
While there are yet more prehistoric Goddesses we could explore,1
let's continue our journey forward in time.
It's very difficult to leave Anyone out! The same is true of the Mesopotamian era I can't include all of the most fascinating Goddesses.
I hope to do another round someday, again starting with the most ancient Goddesses we know of.
As we move into historical, though still incredibly ancient, Goddesses, more is known about them. This next phase of Goddess herstory comes with its own textbooks, thank Goodness.
For this year's Goddess Awareness Week, we'll take you on a trip to ancient Mesopotamia:
Sumer, Akkadia, Assyria, and Babylonia... the birthplace of civilisation (at least, in this latest turn of the great cosmic spiral).
This year, before we get to the Goddesses, we'll start by exploring the context in which we find these ancient Goddesses.
Ancient Goddess Lands
It helps to understand a bit of the background, so our first article will explain a little about the Ancient Goddess Lands: Mesopotamian Cultures & Religions
In this article, we'll discover a bit about the "cradle of civilisation" which gives rise to the Goddesses we'll meet this year.
And we'll learn why it was the most critical of times/places for humanity, womankind, and the Goddess Herself!

Ancient Goddesses Gumbo, or, Will the Real Astarte Please Stand Up??
You'll often hear things like "Ishtar is the same as Astarte," and sometimes you'll hear that they're not the same Goddess at all.
Why is that?
What's going on with all these ancient Goddesses? Is there really only a handful of Goddesses, who take different names in different cultures and times?
At last, here's the explanation! This article clarifies once and for all why there is so much confusion about the ancient Goddesses.

The main ancient Goddess we'll meet this year is Tiamat, the Cosmic Dragon.
We can do the dry details and history tomorrow
, but first I thought we should hear Her story from Her own perspective
"I am Tiamat, Dragon-Goddess of the Primordial Cosmos. You may have heard My name, and even some of My story, however distorted it may have been.
Now the time is ripe for the world to hear the full tale, as only I can tell it...."
