A Message of Hope Dawns

Iris - rainbow goddess, handmaiden to Hera, and messenger of the Olympians - brings a message of hope forth, even if subtle and seemingly impercebtible. With no specific mythology of her own, Iris offers the gentle reminder that meaning is not necessarily found but instead is created.

A message of hope awaits you - however only you can excavate its meaning and reveal all of its colors and depth. Omens exist all around you and it is time you take notice of the beauty that surrounds, impart meaning on the mundane, and open yourself up to receiving that which may be obscured behind clouds of stubbornness, distraction or pre ordained stories. It is time for you to, not only write, but to live out your own myth.

Just like Iris, you have golden wings of divinity which can help you navigate between the sea and the clouds, the emotional depths of your being and the intellectual knowing of your mind-body. It is in embodiment of the journey of life, and sharing of such experiences, in which you will create your own rainbows - your own signals of hope that can uplift and inspire not only yourself, but others too. Your existence has the potential to be a beacon of hope for others. Your light can remind others of their own inherent beauty and the marvel of the world around. Do not fear the palette of your authenticity - share it and you will be rewarded.


Hope is a powerful ally. Rather than seek to find meaning, seek to create it. Take pride in who you are.
