The Alchemical Archetype

Aphrodite, goddess of love, “The Lover”

As the alchemical goddess, Aphrodite shares some similarities with the other two categories, yet she is different from both.

For her, relationships are important as with the relational goddesses, but not as long-term commitments. Instead, she seeks to consummate relationships. She tends to have unlimited creative talents.

At the same time, she is able to focus on what is personally meaningful to her and to becomes totally absorbed in it, like the independent goddesses.

Aphrodite’s magic consists in being fully present in what she does and who she is with. She gives those around her the feeling of being special.

On the less positive side, Aphrodite women easily fall in an out of love. They may act on sexual desire without considering the consequences. They either enjoy being the center of attention and the sense of power that comes with their sensuality, or they judge themselves harshly for those characteristics.

Relational Archetypes

The Relational Archetypes

Persephone, goddess of the underworld, “The Maiden”

Persephone’s job is to be a good girl and please others. Persephone’s playfulness and innocent way of looking at the world gives her an air of being unaffected and a special charm which calls for being taken care of although she may miss sexual passion.

Because she often lacks direction and individual drive, Persephone has the most possible routes for growth among all the goddess archetypes.

This type of woman has a natural understanding of the unconsciousness in human psyche. If she evolves, she can bring important healing to others.

Demeter, goddess of grain and agriculture, “The Mother”

A Demeter woman carries a deep longing for becoming pregnant with her own child. Then she lives solely for them and even experiencing life through them.

If a Demeter woman cannot become a biological mother, she is deeply wounded and struggles all her life to find meaning and purpose.

A woman with strong Demeter influence is almost incapable of saying ‘no’ to others, and therefore has the tendency to burnout through taking on too many tasks. She has a strong sense of responsibility.

When she ignores her boundaries, her psychological health may deteriorate. Her strongest shadow side can appear in the relationship with her children. With the intention of protecting them, she may become over-controlling.

Hera, goddess of marriage, “The Queen”

Women high in Hera energy are really relationship-oriented and good at making commitments. Hera’s full focus consists in not only finding a partner or mate, but in finding a man who is ready for commitment and marriage.

Hera’s obsession with finding fulfillment only within marriage often limits her own individual growth and potential.

Only if she manages to bring her attention to inner realms and other forms of motivation and satisfaction – like the independent goddesses – will a Hera woman grow beyond these negative behaviour patterns. When she does this, she will find peace and balance on her own, as well as within a relationship.

The Independent Archetypes

Feminine archetypes contain important insights into female psychology. These women are fractures of a whole complete woman; seven varieties of female energy, each with their own unique areas of focus.

Represented this way, it allows women to understand and affirm their strengths, and to cultivate our missing (or “recessive”) female energies to help support personal growth.
