The Greek goddesses' stories entertain and instruct us. Why? Because the goddesses are archetypes, an embodiment of that which is universally female, embedded in the feminine soul. The Greek goddesses, legendary ladies of ancient Greek mythology, continue to live on... influencing the patterns of the lives of contemporary women. With the roots of western civilization grounded firmly in the soil of ancient Greece, it's hardly surprising that the names and stories of these fascinating females are the ones most familiar to us in the western world.
It is the Greek goddesses who are most often used to demonstrate the archetypes... who are used to illustrate the enduring and universal feminine traits that are, to this day, the "stuff" of art, literature and even "pop culture".
