Feminine or Goddess energy delves into the archetypal Goddesses: creation, birth, death, wisdom. As with masculine energy, this is not subject to only women to tap into. In fact, as I mentioned that I was fairly comfortable invoking the God, so do I know men who are fairly comfortable communing with the Goddess aspect. Balance (for me) is a key element in my personal spiritual happiness.
There are many ways to consider Goddess energy. As with my post on God energy, these ways may not necessarily be yours. And that is totally fine. We can go through the common triple goddess phases: Maiden, Mother, Crone. But I find that there is more to feminine energy than these phases indicate. There is also a Warrior element that can be found in Goddess mythos. Think Sehkmet, Kali, Coatlique, Diana, Artemis, Athena, The Morrigan, Valkries, etc.
Maybe it is because I am a female, but I seem to see a lot of darkness in Goddess energy. It isn’t exactly a bad thing. Not that all God stories are light and airy, but Goddesses can be downright scary. The moral of this little note is to make sure you do not underestimate the energy you are working with.
