ANCHIALE (an - kee - AH - lay)

A giant mother Gooddess and skilled artisan, Anchiale became pregnant by parthenogenesis. When she went into labour, she found a cave to shelter in. Wracked with pain, she clutched the earth and writhed and yelled. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, avalanches, and tidal waves swept the world.
Rather than give birth through her vagina, her fingers gouged great clefts in the ground and from each one sprang a dwarf.

    She named her ten children the Daktyloi - 'Fingers'. She cared for them well and trained them in many crafts. They became highly skilled doctors, magicians, cooks, and smiths, and thenceforth accompanied her everywhere as her servants and instruments.


Because of your compassion and many skills, people frequently request favours of you, and usually you are obliging. People are important in your life and you are generous and protective. You give expression to the love that is all around you, and it comes back to you increased.
    You are full of ideas and others rally round you to help you put them into action. Your communication skills are good and you form close partnerships in your work. You take others' welfare of into account when making plans, and often your projects result in great benefit to humanity.
    You are happiest in a stimulating, productive environment. You know that creating something worthwhile can be like a traumatic birth, attended by blood and pain, but you have the resources to bring your projects to fruition.

Uh oh:  

You are disorganised. You are easily distracted, and start new things before the last are finished. Soon you start to feel scattered and directionless.
    People expect much from you, and it is hard to let them down or say 'no'. You are sometimes tempted to sacrifice personal projects for the sake of someone else's needs or expectations, and you often fail to devote enough time to your own personal growth. Also, much of your sylph-esteem rests on feeling useful, productive and needed, and you find it hard to relax and enjoy yoursylph just for the sake of it.
If you do not let the Gooddesses into your life, feelings of matyrdom and repressed anger build up. You become possessive, manipulative, and overtly sylph-sacrificial. You feel victimised and weak, and eventually fall prey to serious psychosomatic illnesses.
