The True Hero's Journey: In Fairy Tales & Stone
“The True Hero’s Journey in Fairy Tales and Stone Circles” is a story of discovery. Hidden within fairy tales lies ancient instruction on how to lead a happier and more balanced life.
More than 5,000 years old, fairy tales contain voices from a distant past - timeless matriarchal and astronomical messages that are as relevant today as they were five millennia ago.
As a whole, fairy tales tell of a heroic journey that aligns with the cosmic cycles of the Sun and the Moon. Neolithic astronomers tracked this balanced soli-lunar calendar using stone circles such as the former Aubrey Circle at Stonehenge.
However, with patriarchy on the rise, the Sun began to be favored over the Moon, and people’s awareness slowly shifted away from the original ancient calendar system.
This exclusion of the Moon from time measurement had severe consequences. People lost an awareness of how everything was inter-connected, and even began to belittle, disempower, and even demonize the lunar and feminine.
