For my final two notes to you this year (2019) I want to bring you an archetype that is less tangible than the ones I have previously shared. This archetype is an aspect of life, and something we all must be in relation with (whether we like it or not). I’m closing our year out with the archetype of Death/Birth/Rebirth. This is a situational archetype and a continual cycle. We recognise this archetype in nature as leaves turn dry, brown and fall lifeless from their branches making way for new growth in spring. Each day the sun births a new dawn, and each evening the day dies. A human womb may release an egg each month creating the space for a new ovum and the possibility of birthing new life. Death/Birth/Rebirth is a very recognisable archetype in story and myth. Both Jesus and Osiris came to life after death. Anakin’s spirit died to be reborn as Darth Vada and a submissive secretary was killed and then awoke as Catwoman in the Batman series.
