Is there a goddess in every woman?


Goddesses have been represented in a great many forms, given many names and temperaments. These may well have originally been meant as representatives of female personality types, known as archetypes.


In addition to thinking of a single goddess presenting the one and only goddess archetype for you, it is perhaps helpful to think in terms of each goddess representing an aspect of the feminine experience.

Thought about in this way, ancient mythological goddesses can be useful to today’s women in helping an individual to better understand diverse inner concerns and thus to better cope with contemporary reality.


Understanding inner concerns can guide a woman in making conscious choices that have personal meaning leading to greater fulfillment.
