In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.
Inanna is the name of the ancient Sumerian Goddess that later came to be known as Ishtar by the Akkadians and Babylonians. She is the personification of the Planet Venus: as the Morning Star She is the Goddess of Battle and Protection - as the Evening Star She is the Queen of all Pleasure and Desire. Inanna is a powerful Goddess of love and fertility as well as protection and wealth. The story of Her fearless decent into the Underworld is the oldest religious text in the world dating perhaps as far back as 2,500 BCE. Not just a pretty face, Inanna is a warrior, a dancer, a lover, a weaver, an adventuress and a serious force to be reckoned with; Her cleverness charms the God of Wisdom into giving Her the ancient 'Meis', the blueprints of Sumerian and Ugaritic civilization. Her sacred marriage to the God Dumuzi or Tammuz was the prototypical Hierosgamos and formed the basis of sacred sexual worship for thousands of years. Her temples were wonders of the ancient world and the Ishtar Gate still stands in tribute to Her lasting power.
This delicate pendant reveals Her draped in sensuous apparel and wearing the shugurra crown, portrayed in a symbolic posture offering the milk of Her breasts, She is seated upon Her sacred lion and is holding the Evening Star.
These delicate earrings measure 1-1/8 inches tall by 1/2 inch wide (not including the loop and ear hook) yet they have amazing detail. They are available in Nebula, the wonderful new hypoallergenic metal.
