Women have, for a very long time, in Western society been in a place that is secondary to men. It is important that women step forward and reclaim our place as equals. This is not only important for political and social reasons. It is important for our spiritual health. The inequality of women has eroded our inner spiritual fund of strength to a terrible degree.
While goddess worship may not be what all feminists are engaged in, all who engage in goddess worship are somehow engaging in feminism. We are restoring the female back to her place of divinity within society. It is quite appropriate that women who are seeking to build their interior sense of spiritual strength are drawn to goddesses of sovereignty.
The Great Queen is more then just a beautiful archetype. She is a powerful figure who has the ability to not only validate her people but to extend a touch of her power through them. Goddesses of sovereignty bestow upon the Gods who are their consorts the rights to serve as such. They are not taken as plunder. Instead, the choose whom they take as their own.
This is an incredibly powerful thing. To recognize a woman's right to choose her destiny, conditions, and company is to recognize their humanity. It elevates women up from the position of lesser being. One may be curious how to identify with the Great Queen.
There are many different ways to do so. Over the next month, I will be posting techniques to help one engage and build a relationship with several goddesses of sovereignty. I will also be posting how to invoke the archetype of the Great Queen into oneself.
