The Goddess Hera has as her domain love, romance, and humor. She is a Greek goddess and her worship has existed for centuries. Often referred to as ‘The Queen of Heaven,’ she takes her rightful place as a protector and champion of women. In my opinion this makes Hera not just a goddess for our time, but for all time.

Patricia Telesco in her book 365 Goddess says “Hera rules the earth, its people and the hearts of those people. Using creativity, Hera nudges star-crossed lovers together, chaperones trysts and helps struggling marriages with a case of spring twitterpation!” Many of us remember her from History class. The Ancient History website talks about “Hera (Roman name: Juno), wife of Zeus and queen of the ancient Greek gods, represented the ideal woman and was goddess of marriage and the family….Hera herself was notable as one of the very few deities that remained faithful to her partner and she therefore came to symbolize monogamy and fidelity.”
