.Explore the mysteries of the feminine divineJoseph Campbell brought mythology to a mass audience. His bestselling books, including The Power of Myth and The Hero with a Thousand Faces, are the rare blockbusters that are also scholarly classics.While Campbell’s work reached wide and deep as he covered the world’s great mythological traditions, he never wrote a book on goddesses in world mythology. He did, however, have much to say on the subject. Between 1972 and 1986 he gave over twenty lectures and workshops on goddesses, exploring the figures, functions, symbols, and themes of the feminine divine, following them through their transformations across cultures and epochs.In this provocative volume, editor Safron Rossi—a goddess studies scholar, professor of mythology, and curator of collections at Opus Archives, which holds the Joseph Campbell archival manuscript collection and personal library—collects these lectures for the first time. In them, Campbell traces the evolution of the feminine divine from one Great Goddess to many, from Neolithic Old Europe to the Renaissance. He sheds new light on classical motifs and reveals how the feminine divine symbolizes the archetypal energies of transformation, initiation, and inspiration.
The Goddess Venus has long been an inspiration to artists, writers and composers, while the word 'Venus' itself conjures up images of the perfect woman - an ideal of feminine beauty. This image works not only to dictate a certain aesthetic ideal, but also distorts the original goddesses of love and fertility from whom Venus and Aphrodite are descended. In Venus: The Evolution of the Goddess and Her Planet we see that the original symbolism of the planet can be traced to the legends of the early love and fertility goddesses: the Sumerian Inanna, the Babylonian ishtar and the Sematic Astarte. By tracing the representation, artefacts and legends of the goddesses who preceded Aphrodite, Ronne Gale Dreyer regains the lost attributes of the planet Venus. In this way she not only redefines the interpretation of the planet Venus in the horoscope, but, further, provides a more complete and accurate picture of this model for women.

Venus of Willendorf (24,000 - 22,000 BC) This figurine was found in the Austrian village of Willendorf in 1908 and dates back to the Paleolithic period of prehistoric times.. The voluptuous female figurine is cut from oolith (limestone), a type of stone which originally was not found in this area. "Venus figurines" is a collective term for prehistoric female figurines ever since the Marquis de Vibraye named a prehistoric nude female figurine a Venus Impudique (indecent Venus), which is a pun on the Roman Venus Pudica. The true meaning of the Venus figurines is unknown. It is likely that, in the hunter and collector society of those days, their corpulence stood for prosperity and fertility. The Venus of Willendorf bests all other Venus figurines in its corpulence. The female sexual characteristics are presented very explicitly and enlarged on the contrary to the face, arms and legs which, apparently, were less important. Even her faces was de-emphasized as it is covered with a hair pattern instead of her actual facial features.

The evidence for such incredible assertions comes from American institutions such as the National Grange Order of Husbandry and from the man-made landscape of the United States where massive structures and whole cities conform to an agenda designed to elevate the feminine within religion and society.
