So yesterday I had one of those moments, when a curtain rose...can't say veil as with a veil I can sometimes get a hint or shape of what is behind it...This is more like a curtain, that completely blocks my view.
I've never had much of an affinity with Athena.
I have always resented her Patriarchal serving ways...coming from the head of Zeus as she did.
My path more comfortably fit with Artemis. Same skill set, different focus.
And I've known more than a few extremely Athena like women. Competent, but always staying in the shadow of a Male in Power....
So, yesterday and I'm explaining my story to a person who is about as removed from looking at their life the way I do through archetypes and story...as I used to think I was from Athena.
I realized that all I am now doing for my sons...is Athena in nature.
I am quietly putting things in place to empower them to step into their own power.
I am making it look like it is something that will be good for me....when in fact, if it where not for them, I would no more do it than bungee jump. (I get why people do it, but I never will.)
But in that instant, of explaining archetypes and totems to this man that I am getting me to help execute my plan to help my sons...didn't I just get a whack upside the head from my Athena, who wished to be recognized, thank you very much.
I love it when that kind of stuff happens.
My relationship with my totems and with my Goddesses (and no doubt Gods too, but this is after all the Sacred Feminine) is stepping into a new dimension.
Veils are dropping and lifting all over the place...I'm having trouble keeping up with the insights...
And the odd Curtain is also falling.
It was fun to get behind this one, and see myself in a new light.
But would love to hear from others who are also, or have also had curtains drop.
Doesn't have to be about the Goddesses, but it is where my story here started, thus the title.
