Goddess Ishtar


Babylonian goddess of love and battle, Ishtar.

Ishtar, Inanna's counterpart, is mostly connected with sexual love and monarchy.

Her priestesses are said to have been holy courtesans from the Goddess's temples.

Ishtar's influence is at its peak under the full moon, when she wraps lovers in a cocoon of fertile vitality.

Her fiery temper and determination to avenge wrongs against women and her city have earned her the title of guardian and battle goddess.
