In Greek mythology Horme (Greek: Ὁρμή) is the spirit personifying energetic activity, impulse or effort (to do a thing), eagerness, setting oneself in motion, starting an action, and particularly onrush in battle. She had an altar at Athens, where mainly the divine servants and relations of Zeus (including Pheme and Aidos, as well as Athena) had altars[1]. Her opposite character is Aergia, a goddess of sloth and apathy.
