Which of these Greek deities are you: Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, or Persephone? Take the quiz to find out!

goddess_quiz_main.jpgWithin every woman is a little bit of divinity, but we recognize this perhaps too frequently in our lives. A single woman may fill many different roles in her life and exhibit many different traits. She may exhibit Aphrodite’s love of life, Artemis’s fierce focus, Athena’s wisdom, Demeter’s warmth, or Persephone’s mystery. We each have a little bit of each goddess within us, but take this quiz to learn which of these you most resemble!

    Personally, you may sometimes find it difficult to balance the two sides of yourselfâ€"on one side, the fun-loving girl, and on the other side, the serious woman. You need to learn to accept two things: that every woman will have many different facets to her personality, and that it’s okay for you to reveal more than one side of yourself to the worldâ€"it just means there’s more of you to get to know and love.
