The Myth of Medusa…

Many are familiar with the myth of Medusa, her rape, subsequent transformation in a monster with serpent hair and her defeat by the warrior Perseus who weaponised her dark power by cutting off her head. This is an old myth representing the demonisation of female power and sexuality.

The Symbology of the Snake…

Before the rise of monotheistic, patriarchal cultures the Snake was considered a sacred symbol of the goddess and of the earth. With patriarchy the snake fell from a symbol of divinity to one of evil. This theme is found over and over again in many Indo-European myths. In the Medusa myth the Goddess Athena cursed and banished Medusa, and later received her severed head from Perseus. (The winged horse, Pegasus, was said to be born from her death-throes). Medusa represents a more ancient image of Athena, one as a Snake Goddess. The symbolism of snake and earth Goddess can be seen in other myths. For instance, the python at Delphi was sacred to Apollo after he slew it since it represented a more ancient Earth Goddess. In this time of the rise of the Goddess energy, the Medusa is welcomed back along with her ancient earth power and magic.

Who is this Transmission for?

This transmission is for both men women, it goes beyond your current gender. This transmission is an affirmation of the returning light and power of the Goddess. Not in vengeance or domination but a return to unity between the masculine and feminine.

In this Transmission…

We transform this patriarchal myth into one of healing. We call upon the Goddess Hera and angelic support for a personal clearing of feminine disempowerment and feminine rage then of collective disempowerment and feminine rage. Hera is an ancient Goddess whose veneration predates the invasion of Greece by Dorians and other Hellenic speaking tribes that introduced the worship of Zeus and other Gods.
