Artemis (Oil on canvas, size hw 100 x 80 cm, price € 6.250,00)
Artemis is the Goddess of the hunt and the moon. She is the archetype of the autonomous, self-assured, energetic, free and independent woman. She is charismatic, uninhibited and loves her own body and presence. She chooses how she wants to live and in which areas she wants to develop. She sets clear targets and her arrows never miss. She is able to focus and concentrate on that which is important to her and she is not distracted by possible obstacles or dependencies of others. Which does not mean she is not social: she often has large groups of Nymphs around her, that she will always care for and protect.
Being goal oriented, unwavering, steadfast and self-secure leads to her success.
Artemis never had a partner: she is still a virgin and archetypically she symbolizes the wholeness and unity within herself. Her sense of self-worth and identity are not determined by a partner, but defined by who she is, what she does and how she does it.
Artemis has a strong connection with animals and loves the wild nature, where she reflects on her inner world bathing in the light of the moon.
The 4 elements in the painting bring the wholeness that we need to feel at peace and heal:
The rocks represent earth, her appearance as Sagittarius represents fire, the moon represents water (emotion, tides, second chacra) and the spacious galaxy around her represents air.
Meditating on this painting can help you to heal old wounds and dependencies, as well as physical problems related to your blather, kidneys and female organs. Focus on Artemis, connect to the elements and feel her strength, determination and love.
The deer as a totem animal stands for kindness, empathy, the ability to listen, compassion, grace, innocence and grace. The deer is in some traditions known as the horned God.
His mottled skin shows that there is no difference between light and dark, good and bad. The power of love heals all wounds. The deer asks you to love. Unconditionally. To love people for who they are and respect their weaknesses. Let go of all expectations, of all judgements and allow love and compassion to flow. Selflove is an important part. Gently invite all parts of you: those parts that are hurt, afraid, forgotten, and angry. Meet them and love them. Also meet all the happy parts and let them play.
