NEMESIS (NE - me - siss)

Nemesis is Gooddess of justice and retribution. She is often seen as a winged giant armed with sword and scales. Her name means 'the distributor', and she is the one who metes out each mortal's share of joy and hardship.

She can be monstrous and ferocious, but also compassionate and generous. She makes an effort to chasten those who are over-fortunate and give to those who are underprivileged.

By those with guilty consciences, her strike is as feared as a bolt of lightning. Not surprisingly, the patriarchy have usually pictured her as a dark angel of the apocalypse.
Now and then we hear unseen wings beating, and know that Nemesis is near.


Sometimes you are like a living whirlwind; cheering, scolding, organising, placating, making sure everything is running smoothly and according to plan. Your vital energy is forceful and you know that when an objective is kept in mind, progress can be made every day. You are constantly active, dreaming up ideas and actioning them.
You are strong, generous, and perceptive, able to provide emotional security for yoursylph and those around you. You have great integrity and, also because of your mercy and compassion, make a good mediator. You are a clear-headed vigorous thinker, and enjoy the stimulation of mental activity.

Uh oh:  

You drive yoursylph to do things you should postpone, or even cancel. You forget to relax and wear yoursylph out with exhaustion.
You need to be needed, and others may see you as hovering and meddling, interfering with their business under the guise of being a good friend. Beware of martyrdom, matronising others or feeling that, by giving, you are storing up merit.
    If you do not let the Gooddesses into your life, you feel unappreciated and become manipulative, undermining others, playing on their guilt and weakness. As your resentment grows you increasingly strike out at those who don't respond as you wish, getting violent, maybe even murderous.
