Today is the feast day of Epona, the Celtic & Roman Horse Goddess from where we get the name “pony.”
Her name literally means “Great Mare” and her image – a la above – used to be on Roman stables all over the place. So apt that she connected with the time of Sagittarius – her lucky emblem? The Horseshoe…Horses were obviously mega-important in the olden days -not just beloved but key to commerce, war and transporting oneself. The horseshoe was to attract the favourable attention of Epona, a very jovial Lady, with a similar vibe to that of Jupiter. She is almost like another ‘ruler’ of Sagittarius, especially the horse-mad ones.
Epona is asteroid 3838 – you can look her up in the Astrodienst extended chart options…I would LOVE to know if horsie peeps have her prominent.
And could she be the secret astro-ingredient to success in gambling on horses? Yet another task for my imaginary Astro-Intern…
Do something beautiful for a horse today, in honour of Epona. I am going to give some $ to Horse Rescue Australia. There are similar charities all over the place.
