I promised to speak more about other Deities. We have in the past few weeks, explored the idea of Deities incarnated on Earth, looking like ‘regular’ human beings. I have spoken a lot about Shiv-Durga’s presence and this entire Earth Change, Earth’s Healing aka COVID deeply related to it also, activated by Shiva’s massive Kundalini Awakening as the 3rd eye opens!
A quick recap – Goddess Durga who has now ascended to the calmer form aka Goddess Ambe is regarded the Universal Mother. She has powers of the Moon – a Strong Water Sign, she aims to protect, support and guide women and children. She has natural parenting, mothering, nurturing skills and a very strong Mars aka courage as found in the hearts of Mothers. A mother will do anything to protect her child, will take risks, be bold, speak up, fight if needed!
Durga/Maa Ambe is called the Ardh (half) form of Shiv(a) as being born from him aka the Universal Father as per Hinduism. She balances the feminine and masculine energies along with Shiv. We witness strong shades of femininity in Shiv and strong shades of masculinity in Durga. Durga is a strong water (moon, emotions) element while embodying the balance of all the other 3 elements in her (air, fire, earth).
We find the element of Ethers strong in all the chief Deities, in differing levels with one of the highest being in Shiv’s existence! All the Goddesses will posses differing levels of strength in EACH element with some being their predominant elements, followed by the other elements in varied proportions.
Talking more to Saraswati and Lakshmi. Goddess Saraswati is here to protect ‘knowledge’, ‘scriptures’, ‘classical arts’ and continue the tradition of self-connection by cultivating deep connection through classical arts and traditional, ancient knowledge. In the human form we see her a strong Fire Sign who values higher knowledge, continued learning and education above everything else. She is also a keen listener. You will find her being more traditional in her attire, bringing to light the most classical form of Indian culture. Music, words, knowledge flow through her easily. She has a stronger masculine side, high fire element, followed by water.
Goddess Lakshmi on the other hand is the powerful Air Sign- blessed with a strong Venus – the lover of art, trade, wealth, health and human interaction. Libra is the sign of BALANCE. Lord Lakshmi teaches us to balance our material and spiritual side, balance our give-take in human relations, be more tolerant of each other, value the ‘good’ in everyone and easily attract abundance. She is the most feminine of all the 3 Goddesses, high air element, followed by fire.
While Shiv-Durga, may be ‘extremists’ in their focus on spirituality, wisdom, philosophy and values and be too intense for some, Devi Lakshmi connects more deeply to ‘Earthiness’ of things- the Real Deal in the day to day and how to make it work for you while Devi Saraswati teaches the importance of our Mental Body aka Intelligence.

While all deities have higher order values in general, they specialize in these core areas while being on their own higher ascension.
