The Divine Feminine Oracle contains 53 saints, mystics, poets, priestesses, gender rebels, cross-dressers, trailblazers, and holy troublemakers who represent both divine beings and the human women who sought to embody them.
The potency of this oracle rests in the variety of images of the divine feminine, not just religious diversity, but also race, culture, gender identity, mythology, and geographic location. And also, all aspects of the divine feminine, from what’s considered light to dark, are exalted in this oracle. The red thread that connects them all is the legacy of love they each represent.
I have long believed that there is a connection between our ideas of the divine and the status of women. If the divine is understood to be exclusively male, and is referred to only as the father, then men and the masculine are of higher stature while women and the feminine are valued less. This imbalance harms us all.
There have always been just as many holy ladies as men. We simply haven’t lived in a time that holds the feminine and the female as sacred as the masculine and male. But gratefully, the time has arrived.
