Dark Mother/Dreams/body images

20 Apr

Illustrated by Sarah Trumpp

The Dark Mother is a good energy.  We don’t need to associate dark with bad.  The Dark Mother would relate to Ereshkigal from the Sumerian tradition; or Persephone with her trip to the underworld; or Kali from the Indian tradition or Lillith and the Black Madonna in the Judeo-Christian tradition.  She is Queen of the underworld, where souls go between life and death.  She relates to Scorpio and to live, death, sex and transformation. 

Mission: To honor the deep,passionate part of self.  Therapists and others go into the deep part of the unconscious to do healing work.

Body Area affiliated with this Archetype: Reproductive system, large intestine and the immune system alone with Soul Mother and Mystic.

Dream Images: scorpion, snake, eagle, reptiles, were-wolves, mud, muck, feces.  Sometimes this dreams make me cringe when I wake up, but all part of our process of being a living being.

Two of my favorite nephews Brent and Eli are Scorpios.

Thanks to my followers for your encouragement (I found some of the positive comments in the Spam folder, so I have to be sure and check there also).  Just when I think not many people care about this, I find I have to re-evaluate that perception. 

An example of the way “So above, so below” works is: I had a dream this morning of being in a supped up car that was going too fast.  And yup, the moon just went into Aries, which represents speed.  I had a partner that supped up the car, so he represents my animus, or inner male.  He said not to worry about it, rather cavalier.

    I have come across that today, more and more people are being attracted to cameras and the discipline of taking pictures. However, like a photographer, you need to first commit so much period deciding which model of digicam to buy along with moving store to store just so you could possibly buy the cheapest camera of the brand you have decided to select. But it will not end at this time there. You also have to consider whether you should obtain a digital digicam extended warranty. Thanks alot : ) for the good ideas I acquired from your weblog.

    This is a comment to the webmaster. I discovered your “Dark Mother/Dreams/body images jungianarchetypalpsych” page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I see you could have more visitors because there are not many comments on your website yet.
