I've had an experience with Artemis (or was it Diana?) in a meditation and dream following the mediation and I think about that a lot. I would like to find out more about her. I hope this doesn't sound fluffy or disrespectful. I don't want to rush into a relationship with a deity I don't know very well. I just had the impression that she tried to help me or teach me something, don't know why or maybe I even imagine it and my subconsciousness simply tries to get something across me.

But in case there's the slightest bit of a connection to her, I'd like to thank her for her attention. Can anyone give me clues where to start? I was thinking about this in the back of my head for a while, but still don't have much of a clue. Frankly, I simply don't know how you approach her.

Can anyone recommend good sources on her like books, internet sites, etc.? Can anyone recommend a first approach, like an offering or something? I've painted a picture of her with window colors and put it onto my window because it helps me to think/meditate on her. Hope it's at least not something she dislikes. I just felt the need of having a picture of her in my room.

Then I have a bit of a problem with her, because she comes across to me as scary. She tried to sort of teach me a lesson or show me something. The stuff she shows to me feels like it should make sense to me, but it's hard for me to fully grasp it because her sphere of existence is much different from mine and I have to translate from forest stuff into my allday stuff (if it's even ment to be translated). She showd me how to do something in a meditation and a dream after that and gave me instruction wich I followed in the meditation/dream. The last 'lection' I wasn't able to do because it was too scary for me, I popped out of  the dream because I couldn't let it happen. Now at this point I don't know how to move on. Huh

I hope anybody can make some general sense out of this and offer some starter-suggestions. I don't want to give all the details in an open space where anyone can read them.

For general info on Artemis her page on theoi.com is a good starting point.

There is also a nice bit on modern offerings to her here:

http://www.winterscapes.com/sannion/compendium.htm

Here is the part or that link that list offerings to Artemis:

Quote from: Sannion
Sacrifices:
moonstone, pearl, crystal, damiana, almond, mugwort, hazel, frankincense, jasmine, ginseng, camphor, aloe, menstrual blood

I posted without giving you practical advice.  oops Embarrassed

Anyway, Artemis can be scary at times and she is one of the deities that is best to take it slow with at first.  I recommend making a small offering to her hear and there and see how she reacts.

Might it be an idea to donate or volunteer with charities concerned with animals, wildlife, nature preserving (wild habitats, not so much parks or cultivated areas), etc.? Offering your resources to something She cares about?

That probably would work.  Since all wild places are her domain, I think she would like donations being made to environmental concerns.

Thanks, that looks like a good starting point for information. There are also a lot of references on source material.
