Abstract

Abstract Stella Richards, “Goddess of the Sun, Goddess of the Moon,” The San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal, 2005, 24:3, 74-91. This article explores Homer's story of Kirke, Hermes, and Odysseus. Set against a backdrop of at least 50,000 years of prehistoric art, as well as art and stories from the early historic cultures, this author concludes that humanity's primordial image for the sun was probably female, while that for the moon was male. The author also suggests that the psychology associated with cultures who probably told such stories points to a matrifocal consciousness of abundant wellbeing.
