Which Torc Is Right For You?

The Celtic goddess Artio was a bear goddess who presided over the changing of the season. She was said to conjure winter when she needed rest (hibernation). Upon awaking, she would summon the summer. Hunters would invoked her spirit to guide them to safety and success. Because these fierce animals live solitary lives, the bear has come to symbolize ctheage, strength and the ability to take control of one's life.
