THEMIS IS THE GREEK GODDESS OF DIVINE JUSTICE, THE GODDESS OF ORDER AND LAW. SHE IS THE FORCE OF TRADITION AND CUSTOM AND RULES. SHE IS ONE OF THE 12 TITANS BORN AS A RESULT OF THE SEXUAL UNION OF URANUS (SKY) AND GAEA (EARTH) AND THE WIFE OF ZEUS. SHE IS THE MOTHER OF THE HORAE (SEASONS), EUNOMIA (WISE LEGISLATION), DIKE (JUSTICE), EIRENE (PEACE), AND THE THREE FATES. THEMIS ALSO CONVENED AND DISSOLVED THE ASSEMBLIES OF GODS. SHE IS ALSO THE PATRONESS OF ORACLES AND INTUITIVES--SPECIFICALLY THOSE WHO SEEK TO USE THEIR GIFTS FO UPHOLD AND TEACH DIVINE LAW. IT IS BELIEVED THAT SHE HAD PROPHETIC POWERS AND SAT AS THE ORACLE AT DELPHI BEFORE GIVING IT OVER TO APOLLO.

IT WAS THEMIS WHO INTRODUCED THE ORDINANCES TO THE GODS AND INSTRUCTED MEN IN THE WAYS OF OBEDIENCE TO LAWS AND PEACE. WE KNOW WE HAVE RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM HER WHEN WE LISTEN TO OUR VOICE OF CONSCIENCE. SHE IS USUALLY DEPICTED AS A BLINDFOLDED WOMAN, HOLDING A BALANCED SET OF SCALES; WE SEE HER TODAY IN OUR COURTROOMS AND OUR GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS.

WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH THE GIFT OF FREE WILL. THIS MEANS THAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE CHOICES IN OUR LIVES, AND THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES FOR ALL OF OUR ACTIONS. SOMETIMES OUR DECISIONS MAY NOT BE WHAT IS BEST FOR OURSELVES AND THOSE AROUND US. THINK BACK ON YOUR OWN LIFE AND HOW ONE SEEMINGLY INSIGNIFICANT ACTION OR COMMENT BY SOMEONE MADE AN UNBELIEVABLE IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE, OR HOW A SMALL ACTION OR COMMENT MADE BY YOURSELF WAS HURTFUL TO SOMEONE ELSE. IT IS THEMIS WHO REMINDS US OF THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS FOR EVERY LIVING BEING. IF YOU SEEK HER COUNSEL, SHE WILL HELP YOU TO CHOOSE WISELY. SHE WILL ALSO HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ALL A PART OF THE CYCLICAL NATURE OF LIFE. WHEN WE HAVE RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM THEMIS, WE LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF OUR CONSCIENCE.
