Modulo 3 ARTEMIS

You will start with the stories of Artemis. Artemis was the first born of twins; her brother was Apollo, God of the Sun. She was a help to her mother — the only goddess known for this. Her realm was the wilderness, which she roamed with her nymph companions.

Those who embody the Artemis archetype have a sense of equality with men, a sisterhood with women and an affinity with nature. Artemis energy is active in feminists, environmentalists, activists and therapists motivated to help the vulnerable. Artemis also has a spiritual or mystical way of seeing: moonlight vision.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • The mythology of Artemis and the qualities revealed in her archetypal energies
  • Modern-day examples of “Artemis women,” including Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, Julia Butterfly Hill, Amy Wambach, and Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence
  • How her energies can support you in difficult times and at different stages of your life
  • The Indomitable Spirit of Artemis: How to retain the psychological meaning of "virgin,” and not identify with victim
  • Her shadow or dark side in mythology and how it is expressed as mercilessness and rage in women today
  • What the “Artemis Woman” needs to experience and learn
  • What Artemis’ symbols tell us in the myth of Atalanta: Mother Bear and Calydon Boar
  • The value of circles with a spiritual center

In this module and those that follow, we’ll begin the exciting journey of discovering the characteristics and behaviors of seven mythological Greek goddesses. Through their stories, you’ll begin to recognize which goddess archetypes you are most aligned with, and discover which you may need to draw from or tone down to create greater balance within yourself and your life.
