What is revealed
the mysterious symbols
of naked dreams?
walking on air
The perfect vanishing point
NaPoWriMo wants a narrative today. This is about as close as I can get (which is pretty far away). Words courtesy of the collage box Oracle.
Ishtar is one of those love/war/fertility/justice goddesses…an expression of duality and conflicting desires. But she is definitely about women’s empowerment.
And she managed to visit the Underworld and get back to the upper world again–with a little help and by sacrificing her husband (in some versions of the story justified, in some not so much)–so is also a goddess of the between, the transitional.
And of course she also has associations with the moon and the stars and creatures with wings.
