What are the Amazonian Arts?

The Amazonian Arts are a shamanic way for women[1] to consciously connect with, strengthen and express the fierce feminine.

In this moment, at this time in the world, humans and the greater community of Earth stand poised on a precipice. We have reached an impasse. If we continue on the same destructive path that we have been on we face imminent demise: our own and that of countless other beings on the planet. Yet, it is still possible that this time in our collective memories could instead become known as what is called The Great Turning[2]. Many of us believe that the key to this shift is in fully re-membering, reclaiming and embracing the forgotten, exiled and suppressed feminine. The great urgency required to restore wholesome balance at this time can be heard as a banshee cry in the hearts of all those listening, calling us to awaken the fierce feminine within.

So what are the Amazonian Arts? They are a shamanic way for women to contact the fierce feminine within. The Amazonian Arts is a modern-day mythology: an interactive story of today’s fierce feminine Warrioresses as inspired by the Amazons. This is a story set to support our re-membering of the sacred feminine in her power: a story that we can collectively weave as women consciously contacting the fierce feminine within and shining it both on a personal (soul) and collective (spirit) level. The Amazonian Arts program assists women to meet their specific Warrioress (one of 13), which then opens the door to a set of unique experiences that each woman co-creates for herself to empower her fierce feminine within.

Black Unicorn Speaks …

“I am the mascot[3] for the Amazonian Arts: a magical creature who is the mythological equivalent to the literal steeds of the Amazons. Much like the feminine, I have been reduced and minimised to something comfortable and safe (‘neutered’), but my true nature is fierce, and I am longing to be re-membered and restored. I represent what is just out of reach, unsettling and powerful. I represent the primal and in my dark form I represent the feminine.

I am black and I am back.”

Meet the 13 Warrioresses

Although you can intuitively choose the Warrioress you feel is most strongly calling you and skip this next step, often the Warrioress we choose isn’t necessarily the one that would choose us. Why? Because paradoxically our deepest truths often lie hidden from us, buried in the unconscious. In order to contact the deepest gifts of this work we recommend taking an eagle-eye perspective and consulting what is written in the stars. Amazonian Astrology will take you on a profound journey into your personal natal chart with specific asteroid placements that will reveal your full relationship to the fierce feminine.

[1] I acknowledge that there are people who no longer identify with the binary of woman/man and although I use these terms throughout I value gender diversity and the spectrum that exists between the binary.

[2] This term was first coined by Depth Ecologist, Joanna Macy.

[3] Mascot originally comes from the Latin word ‘masca’, meaning ‘witch’, with etymological connections to the word ‘mask’ (‘black’). Clearly it is time to reclaim this word.
