Eurybia is an ancient sea goddess daughter of Gaia and Pontus. Some sources claim that she is obscure and insignificant but that cannot be right because she was given protection over the ocean waters by her parentless, primordial Earth Mother. She has dominion of the deepest parts with “a heart of flint” and who knows what Shimmers Down There with sunken civilizations and sea monsters as well as vast reservoirs of undiscovered energy — certainly an impact upon the climate.
There seems to have been a coup d’etat by later sea deities and the male dominated shipping commerce–especially in the 18th century.
The oceans erroneously referred to as the “seven seas” are actually five: Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, Pacific, and Southern. These “great waters” embody the principle of the sacred feminine as originator and sustainer of all planetary life so women should reclaim their right to journey there. In ancient times, there were several sets of “seven seas” and this voyage will follow the Mediterranean Herculean Route along the cote d’azur from the port of Barcelona, Spain to Rome, Italy and on to Athens, Greece.
Traditionally, women have been considered trouble at sea but the Male Sailor needs to get over that. There are many ways for a woman to experience the romance and adventure of the high seas (after carefully researching and assessing the risks, of course).
In a legend as old as time, a Fisherman Wife can wait on the wharf.
Or, have a Selfie Retreat in a cottage or beach resort.
Or, Work the Crew of a merchant or research vessel.
Or, be a Honeymoon Bride on a cruise.
There are several ports of call, including:
Stepping out at Monaco, and…
Sightseeing in Marseille.
After arriving in Rome, an additional trip will return the ancient goddess to Athens Nightlife. From here, one could cruise up the Dalmatian Coast of the Adriatic or depart on an island tour of the Aegean Sea.
Our Seafaring Vagabond wants to explore the “Seven Seas” of the Black, Caspian, Arabian, Aegean, Red, Adriatic, and Indian Ocean. There are high risks and rough spots ahead but she is going to ease into it by touring the islands of the Aegean: precinct of the sun’s renown. Elysium!!!
One must be confident, well-packed, and non-flirty to “step out on the waters” and go beyond.
