A strategic thinker and proactive doer, Athena is a consummate Type-A who excels in business, politics and science. Athena is portrayed as a stately and beautiful warrior goddess wearing armor, but her shield, helmet and spear are purely symbolic. In the myths, when she joins the men at war it’s as an advisor, not a fighter. With her supremely coolheaded demeanor, Athena conjures up practical solutions in conflicts—whether they be political, professional or personal.
Athena is depicted in La DoubleJ’s original print with a wise owl and can be invoked when you’re in need of reason and logic to make decisions related to your education or career. Athena is also known as the goddess of craft. During peace time, she rules over the domestic arts as a protector of weavers, dress makers and potters. Still, she is less of a girl’s girl, and more of a daddy’s girl. Instead, she is close to her father Zeus, and more comfortable in the company of goal-oriented men or other practically minded women. An area of growth for Athena is to develop her softer side, learning compassion and empathy.
