Astarte, - Queen of Heaven, is one of the many names of the Great Mother Goddess, who presides over conception, nurture and sustenance. She protects the souls of the dead, who become her star children in the heavens. The Full Moon is her sacred festival.
Burn this incense to celebrate the Queen of Heaven and to contemplate her mysteries. Give thanks for her gifts of life, love and fertility or ask for her blessings - especially at the time of the Full Moon. The Gods delight in beautiful scents and incense is their sacred ambrosia. The ancient practice of burning incense as an offering to the Gods has been practiced by cultures all around the world since time immemorial. The fragrant smoke carries our prayers to the heavens. It is a pathway of communication with the Gods. Not to burn incense is like starving the Gods of their favourite food and amounts to cutting ourselves off from our spiritual source. The Gods depend on our offerings as we depend on their divine graces.
