Archetypes are universal and manifest in many different pantheons and systems. They allow us insight into our own nature and allow us distance. They express both paths that behavior may take; showing us the positives and negatives that come with all actions and emotions. Archetypes can help us see into our actions and know ourselves better. They can help us identify our strengths and develop them. They aid rediscovering areas we have denied within ourselves. They do not excuse our actions but give us insight into our patterns.

How To Determine Your Goddess/Feminine Archetype

Using the score sheet on this page, go through each question--one through fourteen--and list each score (a-

f) under the appropriate Goddess. Enter the score next to the letter. Total the score for each Goddess column. This will give you a quotient for each Goddess. Strong Goddesses in you will be high scores. Underdeveloped or disowned Goddesses will have low scores.
