IANA was know as QUEEN OF THE WITCHES after she gave birth to her daughter Aradia. Diana was first know as the maiden huntress with cresent bow, and stag, or dog. Her status grew with in the people of Rome. Diana was the first created before all creation, she divided her self in half,,one side darkness, the other side light.

When Diana saw how beautiful the light was she desire it with all she was, the light was her brother Lucifer, wanting to recieve again the light into her darkness, she swollowed up the light, thus becomming the dawn. Lucifer the light fled from Diana never giving way to her desires, Lucifer was the most distant part of the light from which the stars shined. Diana went to the father of the beginning,, to the mothers,, and spirits who were before the first spirits and lamented unto them that she could not prevail with Lucifer.

They praised her for her courage and told her in order to rise she must fall, to become the cheif of goddess's she must become mortal. Diana went to earth as did Lucifer, Diana taught the art of magick, and spells hence came witches and nomes, goblins and fairies, all that is like man, yet not mortal. Lucifer had a cat he loved very much and the cat lay with him in bed , Diana took the form of the cat one night and when Lucifer had fallen asleep she changed her form to Diana laying with Lucifer, thus came the birth of Aradia.

When morning came and Lucifer seen what Diana had done, that he layed with his sister, he was furious, but Diana with her charms, and wiles of witchcraft , did so indeed charm her brother, and so Lucifer so did yeild to Diana's love. Diana was not known yet to the witches , fairies, goblins and nomes as there mother, for she hid herself in humility and was a mortal, but by her will she rose again above it all. Diana's passion for witchcraft had become so powerful that it no longer could be hidden. A meeting was held of all the witches known, fairies, nomes, and sorceresses and Diana declaired that she would blacken the heavens and turn all the stars into mice,,, those present said to Diana:



"IF THOU CANST DO SUCH A GREAT THING, HAVING RISEN TO SUCH POWER, THEN THOU SHALL BE OUR QUEEN".

Daina went into the street taking the bladder of an ox and a piece of witch money, which has an edge of a knife with such money witches cut the earth of men's foot tracks and she cut the earth, and with it many mice she filled the bladder, and blew into it till it burst. And then came a great marvel, for the earth which was the bladder became the round heavens above, and for 3 days there was a great rain of mice that was the stars. And having made the heavens and stars and the rain, Diana became known as QUEEN OF THE WITCHES and was the cat that ruled the mice, stars, heavens, and rains.
