It’s time to own the Crone
Traditionally, the Crone was the matriarch of the village. The wise older woman who stood in her power on top of a lifetime of experience. She was unapologetically herself and was both feared and revered for the wisdom she possessed.
But somewhere along history’s path, a mistranslation of the Greek word ‘Hagia’, which demonstrated people’s high respect for older wise women, changed the Crone to bring the current Western world ‘hag’ persona and with it a lower standing in our community.
But no more. It’s time we reclaim it.
