AM, Thank you. She is very interesting. My father was a Buddhist in his later years, and I'm familiar with the image but not her story. Then again I never asked him.

Snakes/serpents have been on my mind the last 2 summers. Mainly because non-venomous ones keep visiting me. I'm generally thought of as a cat lady. Now the neighbors are calling me "snake charmer." That's probably why I've spent so much time here of late looking at Wadjet-Bast, protector of Lower Egypt.

Synchronicity! Yesterday, I got some snake gourd from the farmers market, which is a type of Summer squash popular in Indian cuisine. Thinking about snakes and India, I got to thinking about Naga Kanya, a snake goddess in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism. And here I am reading about Python as your Goddess of the Month!

Naga Kanya is a depiction of the Goddess that I have loved for a long time. She is Guardian of the Three Realms - Heaven, Earth, and the Underworld - represented respectively by her wings, human torso, and snake tail. She is Queen of the Naga, who are a snake people.


She is so fascinating! I'm putting in a link that describes Her, and think you will enjoy reading it!

Greek goddess Delphyne, also known as Python, is a daughter of Hera. She was born without the aid of Zeus.

Delphyne/Python was a dragoness and a servant of the Titaness Gaea. As Gaea's oracle she lived in the cave of Delphi on Mount Parnassus. Delphyne's priestesses, the Pythia, would descend into the cave, sit on a tripod stool, and chew mind-altering leaves. Then they would utter the prophecies of Delphyne/Python.

Later, when Apollo sent his priest to avenge his mother Leto's death, Delphyne/Python was killed. Her Pythia never stopped uttering her prophecies.

To honor this goddess take some time to look within, seeking your personal truth. Or spend some time with your favorite oracle.
