Have you ever wondered why so many female characters in movies, tv shows, and books seem so relatable? They just have these identifiable characteristics that you can’t seem to shake. You might even recognize their behavior and personality in yourself or even some of your friends. This is because most creative artists portray characters that fit within feminine archetypes to create a sense of familiarity.
These themes and tropes display the various types of feminine archetypes, including the mother, maiden, queen, huntress, sage, mystic, and lover. Each archetype is representative of the main expressions of female power and energy. Once you understand the archetypes, they can help you discover your full potential.
By learning where you align with the 7 feminine archetypes, you can strengthen your self-identity and determine who you are at the core of your relationships. With the help of orgonite, which can manage orgone energy, you can even harness the power of your archetype and transform your energy.
What is an Archetype?
An archetype is a common trait or personality that occurs among a particular group. Famous Psychologist Carl Jung suggested that archetypes are innate and universal, meaning everyone naturally identifies with a specific archetype. Feminine archetypes are a powerful tool to help us find our identities and determine who we are as people.
The feminine archetypes are made up of strong personalities that can be grouped into specific personas. Qualities such as independence, passion, ambition, and discipline can all be identifying traits for feminine archetypes.
Most of us have personality traits that strongly suggest we fit into a specific archetype. Yet, we should always remember that women are multidimensional beings. We can have many redeeming qualities that make us unique, and we should embrace every wonderful part of it.
The Lioness (The Mother)
Women who identify with the lioness archetype (or mother archetype) tend to have a strong maternal instinct. They are driven by their desire to create life and care for others. Not only are they attentive, but they also provide support and protection to the ones they care about. They are compassionate and never give up. Although they may be very caring towards others, they may struggle with self-care or setting boundaries with others.
Common Characteristics: Compassionate, persistent, altruistic, nourishing, and encouraging.
The Pendant: The Lioness pendant is a circular blue turquoise amplifying stone. The stone is a protective healing stone that has been said to promote harmony and improve communication. The pendant also has the hand of Fatima, which is the symbol of motherhood. The hand of Fatima represents protection, femininity, love, fidelity, and loyalty, all dominant qualities of “mothers.”
The Free-Spirited (The Maiden)
The free-spirited archetype or most commonly known as "the maiden" is frequently represented by women in the beginning of their lives because of her innocent and almost childlike qualities, but this Archetype can also be found in older women who have discovered their own personal abilities while maintaining the goodness of their hearts. Many women are initially “maidens” before they truly define who they are for themselves. As a result, they tend to be vulnerable and unaware of the cruelties of life before they inevitably face challenges. While this can be dangerous as it causes them to be vulnerable, it also allows them to be more creative and have a positive outlook on life.
Common Characteristics: adventurous, youthful, kind, and playful, naive.
The Pendant: This pendant is made with a lapis lazuli stone, which gives wearers confidence and encouragement. It is also carved in the shape of a lotus flower, the Buddhist symbol for purity of the mind, body, and soul. The lotus flower is also known for its ability to grow in hard terrains such as swampy areas, representing the “maiden’s” resilience in life.
The queen archetype consists of those who are natural-born leaders. The “Queens” are in charge at work, home, or even within friend groups. They are often stately and have the ability to command a room when necessary. Women who are part of the queen archetype also seek meaningful alliances among their friends and look for strong partners. While “queens” tend to be strong, confident, and successful, they can also sometimes be criticized for being bossy or demanding.
Common Characteristics: Leadership, loyalty, and confidence, devotion, sovereignty.
The Pendant: The Queen pendant is in the shape of a diamond, and it is made with pyrite. Pyrite stone symbolizes the ability to harness your own abilities to generate wealth. It also offers protection against criticism and manipulation of others. The pendant also has a sun on the face of the diamond, and it symbolizes the harnessing of your maximum potential.
Women who are independent, goal-oriented, and strong tend to identify with the huntress. The “huntress” is not afraid to pursue her passions and create a life of her own. She channels her strength into intense focus and is never distracted by others. This archetype is often the most idealized by the women’s movement, which focuses on women’s empowerment and independence from men.
Common Characteristics: Strength, independence, commitment, self-reliance, and drive.
The Pendant: The Huntress pendant is made with the lluvia star, which is in the geometric shape of a star. The lluvia star is known as the stone of eternity, and it has been said to exist since ancient times. This stone favors concentration and can help you achieve your goals. The symbol presented on the pendant is the triskele, which represents learning throughout the past, present, and future.
Women of the sage archetype tend to be worldly and knowledgeable. They learn as much as they can before forming opinions. This helps them add intelligent, well-informed views to the discussion. Many women in this archetype tend to make powerful attorneys, academics, and politicians. The “sage” can get the upper hand by gathering information and using it to strategize.
Common characteristics: practical, intelligent, sharp, and strategist.
The Pendant: The Sage pendant is an amethyst quartz in the shape of a star. The amethyst quartz improves concentration which can be helpful for those who are looking to consume large amounts of information. It can also block negative energies and enhance memory. The pendant also has the OM symbol, which is the sacred syllable that combines the physical and spiritual realms.
The mystic archetype describes introverted women who tend to focus on inner goals instead of external ones. They direct their energy towards spiritual and mental healing. Their ultimate mission is to achieve inner fulfillment. A woman who is considered “mystical” tends to prefer solitude and meditation. While this archetype is not as popularly portrayed in Western society, many women align with the qualities of the “mystic.”
Common characteristics: concentration, self-reflective, at peace, and relaxed.
The Pendant: The mystic pendant is a rectangular malachite stone that has a strong connection to the spiritual world. The energy is used to cleanse your chakras and can help you release your emotions. The symbol presented on this pendant is a triangle within a circle, which is used to represent unity and eternity.
The lover is a commonly portrayed archetype representing feminine sexuality, love, and beauty. Women who are considered the “lover” tend to be passionate and look to indulge in their natural instincts. They are often sensual and look to connect with others on a deeper level. The “lovers” are also generally highly creative and can create emotional art, poems, music, or stories. Unfortunately, women of this archetype are also sometimes accused of seeking attention or causing trouble as the mistress.
Common characteristics: passionate, creative, independent, sensual, and alluring.
The Pendant: This pendant is a heart-shaped red coral stone, which promotes self-confidence and combats anxieties. This energy stone can also ward off negative energies and give the wearer strength. The pendant also has knots on the stone, symbolizing love and representing unity between lovers.
