In the Goddess guide join me on a journey to rediscover the feminine wisdom and power, woven into the Goddess myths, legends, Goddess names and archetypes
The goddess guide, contains information on the most popular goddess names from mythology including the Greek, Egyptian and Roman deities. In addition to information about the meanings behind their names we will explore their main areas of influence, powers, origins and genealogy, strengths, weaknesses, symbolism, sacred animals, birds, plants and festivals.
Find out which names of goddesses and archetypes are most relevant to you today and how to bring that energy into your everyday lives.
Writing the Goddess Guide, I re-discovered not only the ancient Goddess names and their myths but also the powerful archetypal energies they represent. These Goddess archetypes can be used as an excellent tool for self-knowledge and empowerment. How? By asking yourself which deity do you most admire? Perhaps it's Artemis with her independent spirit and fondness of nature or the wise, diplomatic, Goddess Athena.
By recognizing those qualities in those names and archetypes which we admire or deplore we can begin to understand the unconscious standards and beliefs by which we judge ourselves and others. By acknowledging all these multifaceted aspects of our character we can start to re-balance and heal.
You can also visit the archetype sections of this site to find out more about the personality traits you may need to strengthen or perhaps those whose influence you wish to reduce in your life. For example you can find ways to tap into the Warrior Goddess energy if you are the someone who always tries to please others, saying yes to everyone who asks you for help even when you don’t have enough time, energy or resources for your own needs.
Remember to also to pay particular attention to the shadow aspects of the Goddesses as it is important that these powerful archetypal energies are expressed in a balanced and positive way. These archetypal energies are like the wind, a gentle breeze is welcome on a hot day but a raging hurricane is a destructive.
This site is also designed to be a useful resource for everyone who wants to learn more about Goddesses from around the world. I have broken down the Goddesses into their historical, geographic regions and also by subject.
