The Warrior archetype in our modern world appears as the leader, the commander or the manager.
Examples: Coco Chanel, Benazir Bhutto, Anita Roddick, Julia Gillard, Queen Elizabeth the 1st, Boudicea, Joan of Arc, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ellen Ripley
Goals: To achieve order, harmony and control in their lives. To exert influence in the world. To assume responsibility and to show leadership.
One of the first clues The Warrior archetype is active is often a desire for women to start a business. If they choose this path they will feel impelled to create a workplace which reflects their own personal vision. Alternatively, if they do choose to work for others they will seek employment in a leadership role. They no longer want to be the worker ordered around for the benefit of others’ needs. They have a very strong desire to control their time and space and to follow their own dreams.
This archetype can aso lead to a strong impulse towards community building and when women relate to this energy they are happy to assume tremendous amounts of responsibility. They may start up community action groups, take a leadership role in a club or society, or promote a cause and engage others to participate. They are great motivators and inspire people with their unique and original vision. This archetype has great potential to bring about change in their personal lives and those of others. Women under the influence of The Warrior archetype can be tremendously powerful and effective when using their skills for the greater good.
