On the 28th of August, the Hellenic Artemis Agrotera/Kharisteria festival is observed.
The Agrotera/Kharisteria is a festival of feasting which is dedicated to Artemis the Huntress.
This is an auspicious time to celebrate success in battles and in modern times victory over what you’ve been fighting for.
Offer meat such as goat or lamb.
Here is a hymn you can use in your devotionals:
Hymn to Artemis
I sing of Artemis, whose shafts are of gold, who cheers on the hounds, the pure maiden, shooter of stags, who delights in archery, own sister to Apollo with the golden sword. Over the shadowy hills and windy peaks she draws her golden bow, rejoicing in the chase, and sends out grievous shafts. The tops of the high mountains tremble and the tangled wood echoes awesomely with the outcry of beasts: earth quakes and the sea also where fishes shoal. But the goddess with a bold heart turns every way destroying the race of wild beasts: and when she is satisfied and has cheered her heart, this huntress who delights in arrows slackens her supple bow and goes to the great house of her dear brother Phoebus Apollo, to the rich land of Delphi. There to order the lovely dance of the Muses and Graces. There she hangs up her curved bow and her arrows, and heads and leads the dances, gracefully arrayed, while all they utter their heavenly voice, singing how neat-ankled Leto bare children supreme among the immortals both in thought and in deed.Hail to you, children of Zeus and rich-haired Leto! And now I will remember you and another song also.
(C) T. Georgitsis
