Inanna was worshipped in Sumer at least as early as the Uruk period (c. 4000 BC – c. 3100 BC). She appears in more myths than any other Sumerian deity.
Inanna is the Sumerian name of this goddess. It is most often etymologically interpreted as nin.an.a, literally “Lady of the heavens”.
Inanna was the source of the earth’s life blood. She filled the wells, rivers, and springs with her “blood.” As a fertility deity, like her Babylonian counterpart Ishtar, she annually descended into the under- world to rescue her consort Dumuzi (Tammuz).
Inanna, known as the Goddess of the Morning and Evening Star was the daughter of the Moon God, Nanna and Ningal, Enki’s daughter.
Inanna encompasses all aspects of life. She was maiden, queen, lover, wife and She who descended into the Underworld and was reborn. She is described as radiant, thundering, destructive, defiant, kind, generous, peaceful, healing, erotic, decisive, discerning, wise, transcendent, loving, fertile, joyous, and ever youthful.
Inanna, Queen of Uruk, Goddess of the Morning and Evening Star, provided the balance of feminine and masculine powers and gifts to the people of Uruk. In Her fullness she is the Goddess of Love, that divine force of life imbued in all.
“My Lady looks in sweet wonder from heaven
The people of Sumer parade before the holy Inanna.
The Lady Who Ascends into the Heavens, Inanna, is radiant.
Mighty, majestic, radiant, and ever youthful –
To you, Inanna, I sing!”
