Aradia (her name is derived from Herodias, queen of witches) was the daughter of moon goddess Diana. Embodying Kore in her power, Aphrodite in her beauty, and Diana in her courage and love of wild places, she was sent to Earth as prophetess of the religion of witchcraft. With her broomstave of power, her cloak of mystery, and her knowledge of every plant, she gave fright to the Inquisition. Aradia taught women how to invoke the full moon at midnight, sprinkling salt from a red bag while asking favors of the Goddess. With quiet authority she proclaims “Never Again the Burning!” A small pentacle adorns hem on reverse. Made of flax color resin with silver painted crescent moon. Measures approx. 8½”.
