Asteroid Epona 3838   Leave a comment

In 1649
To St. George’s Hill,
A ragged band they called the Diggers
Came to show the people’s will
They defied the landlords
They defied the laws
They were the dispossessed reclaiming what was theirs

We come in peace they said
To dig and sow
We come to work the lands in common
And to make the waste ground grow
This earth divided
We will make whole
So it will be
A common treasury for all

Epona was a Celtic Goddess of fertility commonly depicted with Cornucopia, ears of corn and foals.  This connection with horses has linked her to Rhiannon the Divine Queen who represented the land in marriage to the King.  Rhiannon and foals may also be connected to the afterlife and ancestors as Epona may also as a representation of the land of their forefathers.

The sin of property
We do disdain
No man has any right to buy and sell
The earth for private gain
By theft and murder
They took the land
Now everywhere the walls
Spring up at their command

Epona Goddess of fertility was worshiped throughout Europe but Epona became Romanised and only her name remained unchanged as she became the Goddess of the Roman Cavalry due to her connection to horses.

They make the laws
To chain us well
The clergy dazzle us with heaven
Or they damn us into hell
We will not worship
The God they serve
The God of greed who feed the rich
While poor folk starve

Epona today is only associated with horses the most prominent of the Celtic Goddesses still calls to us through the asteroid named after her.

We work we eat together
We need no swords
We will not bow to the masters
Or pay rent to the lords
Still we are free
Though we are poor
You Diggers all stand up for glory
Stand up now

From the men of property
The orders came
They sent the hired men and troopers
To wipe out the Diggers’ claim
Tear down their cottages
Destroy their corn
They were dispersed
But still the vision lingers on

In the natal chart Epona represents our commonwealth, mother earth as provider of all our needs aspects to this asteroid indicate a strong belief in mother earth and in the rights of all men to access her bounty.
