Dal retro di copertina:
The serpent-is it a symbol of evil and pernicious sex, or is it a form of the life-renewing Great Goddess?
This fascinating investigation into the myths, fairy tales, and images of the Serpent Goddess reveals her archetypal nature as the symbol of renewal and the Eternal Feminine. As the worship of the Great Goddess was suppressed, her link to the power of the serpent was vilified, but the Serpent Goddess persists, even today, as a symbol of prophecy, prosperity, and protection. She sustains the eternal cycle of life, death, and rebirth, appearing in both our tales of the world's creation and our fears for its destruction. Learning about the wealth of symbolic meanings of the Serpent Goddess can facilitate a deeper understanding of this powerful archetype within the context of history, but also, within ourselves.
