Goddesses of Prosperity

Spring/Summer energies are a great time to bring prosperity into your life. Here are a few Goddesses who can help:

Abundantia – Roman Goddess of prosperity, luck, and abundance.  She is the personification of wealth and riches, blessing all who ask to receive her gifts.  She is usually depicted as a beautiful maiden carrying a cornucopia from which she distributes food and money.  Her image was found on the coins of Roman emperors, and she is known to gamblers as ‘Lady Fortune’ or ‘Lady Luck.’

Anuket – Egyptian Goddess of the Overflow.  The personification of the annual flooding of the Nile River, Anuket is worshipped as an agricultural Goddess.  She nourishes the field and grains, bringing life, food, and prosperity to the land of Egypt.  Her name means embracer, and Her symbols are the cowrie shell, water jugs, the yoni, coins, and fish.  As Patroness of the poor, She supplies those in need with wealth and fertility.  Anuket is generally depicted as a gazelle, or as a full breasted woman with a reed and ostrich feather headdress.

Habondia – Germanic Earth Goddess.  Throughout Northern Europe, Habondia was worshipped as a harvest deity, granting abundance and prosperity to fields, crops and herds.  Infinitely generous, She promotes growth in all areas of life.

Inari – Japanese Goddess of Nourishment.  Inari is depicted in both male and female form.  As a goddess, She is seen as a young woman with long flowing hair; as a god Inari is represented by an old man with a beard.  She is the goddess of rice, and the patroness of farmers and merchants.  She bestows prosperity and abundance on all who honor Her.

Lakshmi – Hindu Goddess of Prosperity.  Lakshmi is the epitome of wealth and abundance in both the material and spiritual realms.  She rules prosperity in all its forms, and widely bestows Her gifts to those who are open to receive.  Celebrations of Lakshmi are held during the month of October.  She is generally pictured wearing red and gold, standing on a blooming lotus with gold coins pouring from Her hands.  Full moons are sacred to Her.
