    Abstract:
    ARTEMIS: A critical study on the relations between the Feminine and the Moon (through lore, crafts and outer space) is a feminist lunar study investigating the mystical, ecological and scientifically intersectional influence that our planet’s Moon has on earthly beings, especially ones with predominantly feminine attributes. The leading figure of the research is Artemis, a Greek Moon goddess, who is revealed to be a transmutation of other heathen deities still worshipped in some contemporary Wiccan movements (looking at the Dianic Wicca tradition in the USA founded in the 1970s by the spiritualist and feminist activist, Zsuzsanna Budapest), while also being the eponym of the next lunar landing mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), planned to launch in 2024 with the promise to take the first women astronauts to the Moon.
