The Goddess is the expression of feminine energy. True feminine energy is about beauty, love, understanding, nurturing and spirituality. The Goddess archetype is concerned with all of these energies.
Beauty is important to the Goddess. She concerns herself with her physical appearance. Her face radiates beauty yet it also exudes strength and determination. She cares about her body. She considers her diet and what food she needs to nourish her in the best possible way. Her style of dress is often long and flowing. She wears glamorous clothing to show her beauty and the respect she has for herself.
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
This beautiful poem from Lord Byron neatly sums up the Goddess archetype. Finding love and giving love is important to the Goddess. She enjoys close personal relationships and can move between the extremes of a soft and a fiery temperament. Remember, she has the energy of a supreme being as well as the energy of the feminine spirit.
Living in the physical is a challenge for the Goddess. In Spirit, there is instant manifestation. Here on earth, everything is slow and cumbersome. People are often a frustration to the Goddess. Individuals who are out of her favour are berated. Her tirade usually comes in the form of a verbal rage, short, sharp and to the point. Yet, those who carry favour with her are treated with kindness and generosity.
Interestingly, despite the fact the Goddess finds people a source of frustration, she generally chooses work in an occupation where she deals with people. If you are a Goddess, use your energetic charms for sensual experiences, nurturing those around you, imparting wisdom and the protection of the feminine spirit. You are the perfect blend of earthly beauty and spiritual wisdom. Expect to be treated like a Goddess. In return, reward all in your favour with your grace, charm and spiritual connection.
