A Woman Is Strong When…

Filed in ARIES

“A woman is powerful when her first word isn’t ‘sorry’. A woman is powerful when you forget who the man in her life is. A woman is powerful when she follows her gut. Any woman who belongs to herself has power, and that power is perceived as dangerous.”
—  Joan Juliet Buck

OH LORDESS, that webby hairy despairing man-kite faltering down to the ground…..the imagery!
You know, Mystic, that half my drooling admiration for you is fueled by your insightful and rigorously archeological eye. So much spoken in these visual annotations.

Many years ago I read ‘She came to stay’, by Simone deBeauvoir. The publisher’s blurb introducing the book explained, in the first few lines, that deBeauvoir came second to Sartre at the Sorbonne.

By this time she had won prestigious awards and was undoubtedly famous in her own right…..

A woman is powerful when she stands in her truth.

A friend recently gifted me some words of inspiration. They appealed to my earth.

If you’re a rock stand like a mountain.

I look forward to Uma…..

Today I was happy because I used a sander for the first time and it was really fun. I want to teach my nieces how to use power tools, it’s a confidence inspiring thing for a girl I think. Sanded back a small writing table till it was smooth as silk, then painted it with black charcoal paint. Will wax it tomorrow! The table was something I remember since before I could walk. And then my bro had it and it was in his room where he died. So I sanded out the deep scars in the wood and remembered… Read more »

Oh i miss woodworking! Yes, teach them. It was one of the most valuable things my dad taught me growing up. I wish he had taught me more things like that.
I cant do woodworking now because of crazy ocd mother in the house, but once she is gone i am picking up the hobby again.

Very nice Sphinx, i like the sound of charcoal paint

Have just bought myself a personal cordless drill, I do have a small hand sander and planning to have a painting, sanding and drilling day!

Hey V! Sounds like a fun and productive day, lol. My partner has all the tools, but i like having my own sets and I would love my own cordless drill.. 😉 The charcoal paint was pretty and super matte but I had to put a polish on it which ruined the effect a little.

My fantasy too: I wish I could buy a light sabre for the garden – when are they going to invent those things?

BBC headline: “This is not a witch hunt..” Harriet Harman MP has to defend that the mass accusations of sexual harassment against MPs is not a witch hunt and that “it’s long overdue” . YES!

(unless “witch hunt” is taken to mean that witches are hunting down slime bags :P)

Lilith in Capricorn cometh but Lilith in the critical degree of Sagg is really kicking ass.

Trouble is though, that we will be left with empty cabinet, empty parliament, empty board rooms, empty offices, to unemptied bins because every one of us in every walk of life has suffered from this behaviour in the past. We now have the task of rebuilding relationship between us which is going to require some potent Witchcraft ! As I said before losing power is tough but gaining it is tougher.

Very true, emg. Re the spurious, dangerous, gaslighting claims by some parts of the UK media, I was left open-jawed last night when an old friend I have not seen for a while, who twenty years ago had to escape in the middle of the night from Turkey with her two small children from an abusive marriage, called the outing of sexual harrassment in power “sensationalism”, “divisive news media” and that what was “real” to her was her homelife, the mountains etc. Mind you, Taurus moon – touch it, feel it and it’s real, I guess. I just… was lost… Read more »

“A woman is powerful when you forget who the man in her life is. ” I was just reading a Guardian piece about how Nicole Kidman – not my fave but I recognise she does ground breaking work with dangerous tones – will always be known as Tom Cruise’s ex even tho it was decades ago and she is the better actor (she has an Academy award too, right?).
No fair.

There is no good US actress since Meryl Streep. She has left em in her wake. A sexism exists, especially in Hollywood, in the last few years, that it is OK for actresses to be mediocre.

What are the qualifications for a “good” u.s. Actress? Just curious…

Whaaa? A sexism exists that allows actresses to be mediocre? That is a really disappointing statement to read. Perhaps it isn’t the actresses’ talent but the roles available to them. I can name a bunch of great actresses in Hollywood besides Meryl Streep off the top of my head. Kate Winslet, Frances McDormand, Edie Falco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, and of course Cate Blanchett. And Nicole Kidman. And there are many more.
