13 Goddesses Week 8 - Roman: Vesta

Hi Everyone ;o) I am sure happy I picked Vesta for the 13 Goddesses Challenge this week. Vesta is the Roman Goddess of fire. We are having a mini snow storm??? I need some heat! ;o))) We turned our's off last week! It's cold, raining, windy, and has been snowing for the past 3 hours!! So, come on Vesta ;o) Heat me up baby ;o) LOL! Vesta is the Roman Goddess of fire and the hearth, whose circular temple in Rome was considered the central hearth of the city. Vesta means simply hearth. She represents the sacred heart or hearth of the home, the central fire which supplies heat and on which food is cooked. Nourishment and warmth, home and the center, are hers. Vesta was rarely depicted and was instead represented by a naked flame.
Next week, Aztec Goddess Tlazolteotl. If any of you are having this crazy weather, keep warm and safe ;o)
