The Queen Archetype

In creating ‘The Queen Archetype’ card I have found new meaning with the seven feminine archetypes that I find seated at the imaginary table.

I haven’t paid attention that is full of information about the queen. She is the keeper of confidence, perhaps of leadership, part of alliances to be made and the ability to attract the finer things throughout life.

I have ignored the needs and wants of each archetype at the table and the seven are rather unhappy. If given the proper attention to each type they could be a help to one another.

I feel because I am the reclusive type of person hearing the queen’s complaints have not been heard and at times ignored. The queen’s needs are a bit scary for me – that need for power becomes over whelming as I don’t think of these concepts in my day to day experiences. I haven’t the need for either power or control. Power is granted by a people – it isn’t lasting. Power should be used for the greater good of the people or it becomes an illusion and compromises the integrity of the queen.

Power and authority can be additive and very hard to let go of. It almost seems to become a huge give and take or lose oneself entirely.

Through this short study I have concluded ignoring the short comings of the queen can cause her shadow side to emerge and become more intense. She knows her integrity could be in danger.

It is well to keep a balance and avoid the struggles for all who take a seat at the table.

The Feminine Warrior

From the previous post and class I was reminded of Archetype Cards. I have enjoyed making these collages and find I wander back and forth
with them. I have kept a notebook through the years of the writings and a deck of cards. I am a firm believer in Jung and find his teachings and
books most helpful in everyday daily life.

I would like my life to become more adventurous, I have to be willing to take more risks, try new methods and ways of doing things in a perhaps a little
more daring way. The archetype I feel that best describes the adventurous type would be the feminine warrior. She is the heroine in books, she has
at times lived in darkness and struggled to brake free. When she finds the way out of her struggles she returns to the light with more strengths.

I feel she repeats the process many times over, an evolving character.

~Notes, SoulCollage a good starting point for creating the cards.
