“Many, many thousands of years ago the Earth Goddess was worshiped and honored along with the Sky God. Together, the Earth Goddess and Sky God created balance. The Earth Goddess ruled intuition, while the Sky God ruled the intellect. The Earth Goddess ruled birth and creativity, while the Sky God ruled struc- ture and forward action. The Earth Goddess ruled water and earth, while the Sky God ruled air and fire. By working together, the pair created harmony; bringing opposite characteristics together to create a unified whole. However; over time, the world view has become unbalanced, and the Earth Goddess has been put aside and hidden from our collective psyche. Masculine values demonstrated by the Sky God have been praised and considered strengths, while feminine traits have been misconstrued to be weak and less desir- able.
Today, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding around the word goddess when it is used to de- scribe a mortal woman. Some people automatically think of sex goddesses designed by men — tall, buxom blondes in high heels and lingerie. Other people assume that all goddesses participate in pagan rituals. Others think that the description is pompous, and the word Goddess conjures up images of self-aggran- dized women who put themselves up on pedestals; a notch above ordinary women. Bringing back the essence of the Earth Goddess is not only important — it is essential in turning around our world situation. Focusing attention on goddess-like women and their visions — through their work and art — will help ex- pand the consciousness of our society at large.” Sierra Bender
