The Wyld Godde Tarot Star card points to the future. The Star signifies hope as we find ourselves on the threshold of the Age of Aquarius. And what does this hope look like? It turns out that hope looks like a naked woman who dispenses water, a symbol of grace. When I think of the best possible outcome for future generations, I think of an era where people have the courage to be authentic and transparent. Nakedness is a symbol of transparency.
The 14th Dalai Lama once said, “The world will be saved by the Western Woman.”
Apparently he also years later joked “If a female Dalai Lama comes, then she should be more attractive or she won’t be of much use.” A statement he later had to apologise for after an outcry in the media.
Personally, I’d like to thank a retired vicar for reawakening my inner feminist with a truly dreadful misogynistic comment the other week. I was in a group where we were discussing which elements of the worship service we valued the most. For many, it was the hymns. I said that I preferred dancing to singing.
The old vicar scoffed that in the 90s a group of women had put together a dance piece to perform at his church. He went on to say that the only comment made to him about it afterwards was from another man who said, “Well, the music stopped but the women didn’t.” So, in other words, a fat-shaming joke about how their bodies had kept jiggling after the music stopped. Apparently, the old vicar found that joke funny 30 years later because he was still laughing.
My heart went out to those women across time and space.
It wasn’t until days later, I realised how triggered I had been by that comment. In my late 20s, I left my Evangelical church family over my career choice to become a dance teacher. The rift happened as the result of a public shaming over a dance performance I had taken part in at another church. So yeah, I’m still working my way through my RTS issues.
The Return of the Divine Feminine
My friends, we still have a long way to go until there is true equality. Equality can only happen when men revere and appreciate women for their true feminine qualities and not for their superficial levels of attractiveness. Men have to evolve a lot for that to happen. And many of them are lagging.
The Dalai Lama was right about Western women in a way. So many of us are doing a lot of inner healing work. But I’m sure that’s true about women all over the world. And that is what the world needs now. However, men have to engage in this work too. And that includes the Dalai Lama himself as well as the retired vicar.
