The truth is, everything has a shadow…even the “pure” concepts of beauty and bravery!
How can we learn to embrace our shadows and integrate their wisdom into our lives?
In today’s episode, I will reference Stacey Demarco’s Goddesses and Sirens oracle cards, which are beautifully illustrated by Jimmy Manton. We will be exploring two historical feminine icons: the beautiful Helen of Troy and the brave Joan of Arc.
The historical accounts of these two women are mired in tragedy, and yet they continue to resonate through time and space as icons of beauty and faith. Helen of Troy was caught in an illusion of beauty that became more powerful than herself, and Joan of Arc’s devout faith and audacious bravery became her downfall. Their stories remind us that beauty and faith can be easily misused and misinterpreted in their extreme forms.
If you enjoy learning about women of history and divine feminine icons, please listen to my Divine Feminine Oracle Series that begins with Episode 163. Fast Friday: Messages from the Divine Feminine Oracle of Mary Magdalene and Kali, Destroyer and Mother of the Universe
