Demi-Goddess of Witchcraft
Circe is only part goddess, but that's what makes her so powerful. She wasn't born to power - she seized it for herself. Read on for your full goddess profile!
You value alone time and vehemently disagree with John Donne's quote, "no man is an island". You don't need anyone else to make you feel good - you're perfectly capable of that yourself, thank you very much. In case you haven't already read it, we highly recommend the book Circe by Madeline Miller, which inspired us to start Common Era.
Born a minor goddess with little influence, Circe had to manifest her own power through witchcraft—unlike the other gods, whose powers are innate to their immortal souls. Spells and magic were unnatural to them, and for her otherness, Circe was banished by Zeus to live alone on the island Aeaea.
Now and then, a lost ship would arrive on Circe’s shores and break her isolation. More often than not, the crew was made up of cruel and lustful men who would not hesitate to take advantage of a woman living alone. Unwilling to sacrifice her safety for their comfort, Circe sensed their intentions before they could act, and cast a spell to transform these men into pigs.
