About Us

Goddess Envy:  Goddess Envy has been a shared conceptual dream of Amethyst and Dragon’s for many years even before they met.   It took the two souls finding each other to make it a reality.  Both people have thrown much of themselves and their beliefs into it.  Our number one goal is to educate.  So many pagans still feel the persecution of their beilefs.  In a world where equal rights is on the forefront of many political and social topics religion should be included. We hope to bring nature back to the suburbs with a brick and mortar store in Aurora within a few years.    
Amethyst:  I came into the pagan path as a sophomore in high school.  I have since delved deeply into my own spiritual path and education.  I completed most of a year and a day program with Colorado’s Collage of Wicca and Old Lore.  I realized that I needed more solitary teachings and broke away before finishing.  I have lived a magical life for many years now as a solitary practitioner.  Growing up in Aurora, CO I -like many of my fellow practiononers - have had to travel into the heart of Denver to find the supplies and knowledge that I needed.  The thought of a store closer to home has been a dream for a long time.  I have felt a calling for Goddess Envy for a number of years and through the aid of my husband have finally been able to make it a reality.

Nu Wa- 

Goddess Nu Wa

Each major religion starts with a creation story.   The Chinese culture and mythology is one of the oldest in the world.  In this culture creation starts with Nu Wan.  Also known as Nu-Gua, Nu Kwa, Nu Kua- She is a half dragon/serpent half human.  She comes from the great nothing and creates the creatures of the planet.  She even uses yellow mud to create people.  She spends much time and care as she hand forms them.  This takes a long time and a lot of effort and she grows board and tired.  Finally She dips a rope in the mud and slings it about her.  The droplets that come off are also people, but have not had her special care and attention.  The lesser people became exactly that, the servants and lesser workers.  The people that had been hand formed became the upper class, wealthy and powerful. 

The God of Fire and the God of Water, battling for power, were causing chaos across heaven and earth.  Gong Gong, God of Water, smashed into the pillar of heaven and poured the sky down.  It also opened the earth and allowed the fires from below to flow up.   It caused a great floods and fires that devastated mankind.  Nu Wan was saddened that her creations should suffer.  She fixed the broken sky, and used four legs of a turtle to prop the earth up.  Some say the only evidence of her repairs are that the sky and earth now slant in opposite directions causing the rivers to run Southeast while the starts travel northwest. 

Nu Wan was married to her brother FuXi.  With Fuxi she created the world and the universe.  She and her husband are depicted in a famous temple drawing, each holding an architect’s instrument among stars.   Through her marriage to Fuxi , Nu Wan is also attributed the introduction of marriage to mankind. 

Fuxi and Nu Wan are listed among China’s Five Emperors.  These are five gods or demigods that became rulers of the world they created.  Not all lists include Nu Wa.  Chinese culture originally included her as their culture was Matriarchal at the time.  Once it changed and slid into patriarchy, she was dropped from the list, although still seen as an equal.   

Nu Wan worship has survived eons of human growth and religious and cultural changes.  She currently has a temple devoted to her in Hebei Province.   Annually on the 15th through the 18th days of the second lunar holiday (this year March 23-25th) people make pilgrimages to her temple to honor her.   In addition, there is a festival held in her honor on her birthday – the 15th day of the third lunar month (3/24/2016).  It will begin at noon on the 23rd and carry through to the early morning of the 24th.  People will come to her temple sit and sing or dance to honor her.
