You might not feel very divine some days, but that doesn't mean you aren't. All of us have a little spark of heavenly fire, and even though today it's most fashionable to be a monotheist and to think of God in extremely masculine terms, that doesn't mean that's the only force out there in the universe. Human history and culture are filled with goddesses who may be at least as real as any described in monotheistic texts.
In contrast to certain stereotypes about women, not all of these goddesses are very cuddly. They're what you get when a female spirit inhabits a powerful body and doesn't have to fear for her safety or what people think of her. That means between them; they express the fullness of womanhood. That means some of them are sometimes kind and nurturing, brimming with maternal love. Others are fiery and ambitious and sit in judgment on lesser beings. Others are prone to destruction and chaos and love to throw a wrench into everything and see how it all falls out. Still, others are wise, thoughtful, and intelligent, prizing culture, art, and science above all. Which of them is like you? Let's find out!
