The Logical Communicator
Your Goddess Qualities
The mythical Athena is a fierce protector and generous to people she cares about. As the daughter of Zeus, she is wise and intelligent, often referred to as the “Warrior Goddess.”
Your Personality at Its Best
As an Athena, you are strong, outgoing, and competitive. You have a great need to express independence in your lifestyle. You enjoy being recognized for your contributions and thrive on being a trendsetter in your chosen work. You are often an authority on “who’s who, what’s what,” and “what’s new on the horizon.” You like to be recognized by your peers for your superior judgment, excellent taste, and understanding of current events. You possess an above average intelligence and usually have a special skill.
As a natural leader, you communicate well and have the ability to delegate responsibilities to others. Thriving on competition, you love to involve yourself in endeavors that may lead to personal stardom and involve a certain amount of risk. When you spend time on challenging and rewarding activities, rather than boring ones that leave you unrecognized, you are happy and can handle an active lifestyle well.
Early Childhood Conditioning
You’ve often been misunderstood or not allowed to express your own truth, which has led to your overreaction to the opinions of others. You find it difficult to accept any form of criticism or rejection. When criticized, you tend to hold back your feelings and, while you may lash out at those who upset you, you may also harm your own health by not expressing your anger.
How Your Personality May Undermine Your Health
You have a better than average constitution and are likely to enjoy a full and active life. You thrive on a high-protein, low-fat diet, fresh air and exercise, and hobbies/activities that stimulate your intelligence and self-expression.
The Creative Wellness Athena is a woman of strong character who loves to express herself through various forms of communication. Despite her strong constitution, she can break down under stress when she disregards her physical and emotional needs.
If you are under long-term stress, your thyroid gland may lose its ability to regulate your metabolism and cellular rejuvenation, leading to premature aging and a higher risk of disease. In addition, your tendency to be extravagant and overindulgent causes you considerable stress, which can further irritate your thyroid and cause you to feel that your life is out of control.
Since your innate vulnerability is centered in your thyroid gland, and this weakness is heightened over the years from stress caused by your internal struggle with authority, the thyroid loses its ability to regulate your metabolism and cellular rejuvenation. To offset this body abuse, you need only become sensitive to your needs. You require relaxation and play. Express your emotions by acquiring relationships with people you can be yourself with, and allow yourself spontaneity. This will release the wonderful attributes that make you one of the looked-up-to and admired goddesses. You can be the star in any circumstance. You need only use your charm, not your sword, to win your audience over.

I accept responsibility
for my past misdirected emotions,
which have caused me to have
an imbalance in my psyche.
I now pledge to change
this detrimental habit
so I can live in a more balanced manner —
spirit, mind, and body as one.
Knowing that I can become
a true humanitarian, sensitive to myself
and to the needs of others,
I make my commitment now,
and I project my awareness
into my everyday lifestyle.

Athena needs to avoid all bright reds in her wardrobe whenever possible. Even though she likes red and may think that she feels good in it, most reds overly stimulate her thyroid/adrenal relay circuitry, making her nervous and aggressively defensive. These reactions cause her to lose her sensitivity to herself, and often will create physical and emotional blowouts.
