Dianics believe and worship the Great Mother of ten thousand names. In the cosmology of the Tradition the Goddess is the source of life and universe with many characteristics of Herself which are all the Goddesses archetypes. She is conceived as "one in three", in Her aspects as Maiden (bright and dark), Mother and Crone, as well as the most important passages of women's life. These archetypes are also linked to the principle phases of the Moon: crescent and waning Moon, full Moon and new Moon. She is perceived as "female being" because she is the Primordial creative matrix. She created herself through the process of parthenogenesis (impregnation and creation without sex), thus emanating diverses life forms (terrestrial and galactic) from the center of Her spiral-self.
The dualism between man-God and Divine Feminine, introduced by the patriarchal ideology, it is not contemplated in the Dianic Tradition. The male polarity is considered part of the primordial "One" which is the Goddess Herself.
Diana is the icon-Goddess of Dianic Tradition. She is the Goddess of hunting and spells, protector of children and women and She is also identified with the moon and the wild nature. She is the Goddess Who hunts Herself, the prey and the huntress at the same time, because She is the whole circle of life.
Diana represents the inviolability of nature, which if profaned, produces death. Her attributes are maidens and wild animals and She is often depicted with Her hunting dogs, an archer bow or a torch, wearing a very short and light tunic as symbol of freedom. She got the eternal virginity, which has to be interpreted as an emotional independence and self-sovereignty.
In the ancient religion of Italics and in the Mediterranean area, Diana is a Mother Goddess, the one who presides over life and death. Cicero defines her as Lucifera, "bringer of light", Horace invokes her as Virgin of mountains and forests and triformis, "three-shapes/forms", because within Her are the three phases of the moon: the full moon - the Mother, the moon in its manifested creative life force - the black moon - the Crone, symbol of death and transformation - and the waxing moon - the Maiden, the stretched bow of the Goddess which appears after the new moon as symbol of rebirth.
