Anahita the Immaculate

The Immaculate.

LG lesser power (yazata) of prosperity, justice, liquids (She/Her)

Pantheon: Persian

Realm: Mount Celestia / Lunia / Purifying Water

Anahita is an ancient water goddess from Persian mythology, also associated with fertility, prosperity, justice and healing. She appears as a beautiful and benevolent figure, and her attributes align closely with the life-giving and nurturing properties of water; cascading blue hair woven with water lilies, flowing slue-green silk robes, and she moves and speaks with the grace of a river.

Anahita wields power over rivers and water sources, and through her grace and mercy comes the vitality and abundance that water brings to the land.

However, her importance extends beyond just water-related matters. She is also revered as a deity who brought fertility to crops, the protection of animals, and the well-being of the natural world. Her realm Purifying Water on Lunia, on the banks of the River Eunoë, is bursting with abundance of fruits, vegetables, and free-roaming healthy livestock.

In the Persian Pantheon, Anahita is considered a yazata, a divine being worthy of worship and devotion, while (of course) subservient to the great Ahura Mazdah. Some sages believe Anahita, as with the other yazata, may be an aspect of Ahura Mazdah. She may well be both; powers can be tricksy like that.

Anahita’s petitioners are renowned for their festival celebrations in the name of their goddess, where bountiful food and drink is available to all and the revelling continues for days. Not just useful for the morning after the festival, Anahita’s faithful are also held in high regard as healer and herbal medicine-makers.
