Her Sacred Fire
The Fierce Love of the Dark Feminine in You
by Cassandra Eve
The mystery of the Dark Sacred Feminine is alive in our bodies. She is the polarity to light, the deep fertile womb from which all life arises and to which all life returns. In many cultures, light and dark are known as natural and complementary polarities of life. Yet in our western culture, darkness often carries a negative undercurrent. This separation of light and dark influences every aspect of our lives, particularly women’s role as creatrix of human life, our naturally sensitive and emotionally chaotic nature, and our sexuality. As a result, we have become split from the deep mystery and fertile capacities of our own true nature.
In Her Sacred Fire – The Fierce Love of the Dark Feminine in You, Cassandra Eve explores the impact of this dark/light split on our lives, through eight Dark Sacred Feminine Archetypes: Inanna with her sister, Ereshkigel, Eris, Hekate, Persephone, Sedna, Black Moon Lilith and Medusa. She weaves together astrology, mythology, and women’s wisdom, exploring the deeper meaning and purpose in our dark experiences, and revealing that our shadows are not what they seem to be. Reading this book will open your mind, heart, and womb to an enlightened understanding of what is often judged, rejected, and shamed in yourself. It’s a light beam shining into the dark of your true mystery.
