Aine is a goddess of summer and sun. She also represents wealth and
sovereignty, which is always good to think about when it comes to careers.
Aine used to be a great Celtic goddess. When mortal kings tried to take advantage of her she would bite off their ears, and then that was it. They weren't king anymore. It was a good gig, and she really made the most of it. You know all those green meadows Ireland is so famous for? Totally her doing.
But times change. With the rise of Christianity, Aine and her kind got the boot. No more worshipful people. No more ears to bite off. She was totally downsized. She had to reinvent herself, and so she became queen of the fairies.
I know. It doesn't sound nearly as impressive. But, as queen of the fairies, she is still around. Can you say that about Hathor? Hera? Aine survives in folk culture even now. Plus, William Shakespeare wrote a play for her: "A Midsummer Night's Dream." That's hers, and that's not so shabby.
The message of Aine is to be flexible. Worry less about titles and names and more about the ability to be true to yourself.
Channel her: when in a mid-career crisis, when contemplating a new job, whenever you are finding it hard to change with the times.
