    Anais Nin brought me here. The chapter titled "Virgin Goddess" was the most insightful for me in regards to the myths surrounding sirens / mermaids and equating it to contemporary times - for Harding having written this in the 30s that chapter is still very relevent espically in this age of extreme narcissism. Good for those who wish to start exploring their subterranean depths.

    At the time I read this I wrote: "Accepts the existence of psychic as well as physical difference between male and female and purposively attempts to redress the overemphasized masculine by focusing on the feminine nature as symbolized by the moon motif." For her time (1933) Dr. Harding was a feminist, but her approach, typical of the Jungians, is to emphasize the differences between the sexes while claiming to see them as equally valuable.

This rankled a bit at the time of reading and may bother me even more now, particularly since I've finally read some material by and about transgendered persons. While not denying long, and diverse, traditions of gender distinction, I find myself increasingly disinterested in appeals to nature, increasingly interested in seeing these traditions as merely suggesting possibilities--and, of course, problematics--to the free agency of human beings.

    M. Esther Harding was a student of Carl Jung's. This book is her treatise on the expression of the feminine principle as it was ritualized in the worship of the Moon Goddess (represented as Ishtar, Isis, Mary, etc.), and as it reveals itself in our unconscious. She explains the rich legacy of ancient symbols and practices and correlates their importance with the modern journey toward the evolution of individual spirituality for both men and women.

She explains the rich legacy of ancient symbols and practices and correlates their importance with the modern journey toward the evolution of individual spirituality for both men and women. For such a large and complex subject, Harding does a wonderful job of opening the flower of the feminine one petal at a time with her poetic phrasing and deep understanding of the mysteries of the process of spiritual awakening. Highly recommended.

    I attempted this in college. It came highly recommended from someone I respected, but I wasn't into it. I wonder what I'd think now.

    Mia edizione: Astrolabio 1973 Un'interpretazione psicologica del principio femminile come è raffigurato nel mito, nella storia e nei sogni, anche lui letto nel lontano 1982. Da rileggere perché ora sono altri i miti e i sogni, non più quelli di una giovin donzella in cerca di sé.
