Goddesses Who Protect Travelers
As we begin to look forward to September and the first day of Fall, we remember that, for now, it is still Summer. This means there is still plenty of time to take a vacation and travel.
With that being said, this column looks at three Goddesses who will protect you on your journeys far and wide.
CHAM MO LAM LHA
Cham Mo Lam Lha is the Tibetan Goddess of Travelers. She is a worldly protectress who rode on the back of a bee to insure smooth travel.
She not only will help with outward traveling, but also the travel of an inward spiritual journey
Abeona is the Roman Goddess of Outward Journeys and Safe Passage. She protects travelers on their departure. She also guides and protects the first steps of children, as well as their first steps away from home.
Abeona’s name means “to depart, or to go forth”. As such, She is also the Goddess of Partings.
Adiona is the Roman Goddess of Safe Return. She protects
travelers on the arrival back home. She also protects children,
as they leave home and reassure parents that they will return
home, at least to visit.
Her name means “to approach or to visit”.
Abeona and Adiona are both thought to be aspects of Juno due to their special focus on children. These two Goddesses worked together protecting travelers as they departed and made sure that they returned home safely.
May you be blessed on your adventures and travels and may these Goddesses of travel watch over you on your journeys.
