Io, the nymph turned cow who is connected with the moon. Io's tales are many. She wanders the region, goes to Egypt, meets Isis. She is a goddess, a river, a sea, and the moon. She is the embodiment of resilience in her suffering and what she endures. Her tears become violets. She is mystery like the moon, and worth exploring.
I forge my Io pendants on Monday. The bead is polished sterling silver. I chant into each forged piece a request for Io's blessing, for perseverance and resilience, and for prosperity.
