After covering Jungian masculine archetypes in previous four episodes, today we are starting to explore feminine archetypes. Even though there is somewhat less literature and research on this topic, there are certain archetypes that are consistently described across the different systems. So in the second part of this series, we will explore the archetypes of The Mother, The Amazon, The Lover, The Witch, and The Queen.

We begin with The Mother, the characteristics of her full expression and her shadow versions, as well as the examples from popular culture, that will help you better understand and recognize this archetype.

In ancient cultures, Mother could mean your actual mother, the general mother role, and also nature itself. All of the physical world was seen as Mother, having the qualities of giving and taking away life. - @EuvieIvanova Click To Tweet
