In most cultures, women have been traditionally defined by three roles: maiden, mother, and crone. Each is a powerful metaphor, each has value, but they all live within society’s expectations. They are often as much about how the world sees women as they are how we see ourselves.
There is another metaphor, one that acknowledges women’s power, our wildness, and how we often stand outside the constructs of society.
And that is dragon. Filled with fire, with possibility, with fortune, and with danger, dragons refuse to be bound by rules.
How do we see and embrace this power in ourselves, even when we aren’t sure we can? How can we learn to ride this fire enough so it doesn’t burn ourselves or the people around us? And at the same time, how can we understand that its very nature resists being tamed? How can we navigate the risks of unleashing this fire in a world that is often terrified by it?
