[Part 1] Once we get in our core the awareness that no matter how many quilts we gather on our mere human power to weave, men as a global sex class consistently harm us (the better but still male-privileged Roberts and Nigels notwithstanding), there’s no more hand wringing over that. Then there might be someplace else to go. From there maybe collective consciousness for change invoking Spider Woman-esque spiritual power is possible among women.
Rachel Carson, if my memory serves, wrote books after Silent Spring in which she addressed what happens after volcanic destruction of small islands. All the life seems to be destroyed until, good golly Miss Molly, along come the teeny tiny spiders first. Seriously. Nobody knows how they get there. Like Magic. Like Spider Woman is a good metaphor for life staying true to its roots while also evolving. (Not that Carson made the connection. She did enough for any one woman, and yet Monsanto still reigns in its GMO profiteering insanity. Thus, not reformism of the system, it is pointless. But maybe invocation of Spider Woman. Why would movie franchises reverse Her with so many Spider Man films if no power resided in Her for women? It could, however, take a collective effort to find out, even if we all simply agreed to make our invocations at a certain time on a Sunday from wherever around the globe we live.)
Until we invoke through consciousness the natural elements of real Life and our own collected wise spirits as women against the death-dealing global patriarchy, how can we be sure She and our collective We won’t help Us? Goddess knows we need a lot of help now.
