When you think of the term “Crone” what do you think?
I’d like to bet that the picture that comes to mind is something in line with the Wicked Witch of the West from “Wizard of Oz”. You know the one I’m talking about – big hooky nose, wart on the chin, mean temper – maybe not the green skin though! LOL.
And even if you go to Wikipedia you find:
“In folklore, a crone is an old woman who may be disagreeable, malicious, or sinister in manner, often with magical or supernatural associations that can make her either helpful or obstructing. The Crone is also an archetypal figure, a Wise Woman. As a character type, the crone shares characteristics with the hag. “
Yes, Wikipedia does acknowledge the Wise Woman, but that almost seems as if it is an afterthought!
This also was found on Google:
“You might call her a crone, if you’re brave. (But be careful: the term is insulting.) Since the late fourteenth century the word crone has been a term of abuse describing old and bad-tempered women.”
The reality is that Crone is the Wise Woman. She, traditionally, was the Healer, the Teacher, the Midwife, the Psychologist, the Pharmacist and heaps more. She is the Holder of Ancient Knowledge and Wisdom. She was a strong woman, the centre of almost any community. Often strong-willed, dominant, didn’t take sh^t from anyone! She was respected, revered, honoured and protected for the invaluable treasure she was. Until the Church and other male-dominated societies decided she was a threat and the witch-hunts and other forms of suppressing the Feminine started.
When humans followed a Matriarchal line, there were no wars. That’s not to say the world was fully peaceful – there were simply no major wars as we see now under patriarchal ruling. From a Crone perspective, there are ALWAYS other ways to solve disputes.
Words have Energy, and the term ‘Crone’ has been held in fear and contempt for so long that on hearing that word or reading it, we immediately think of that introduced archetype – the wicked old woman; hooked nose, wart and all.
Now it is time for the Krone to arise. To re-stand in today’s society as the powerful woman she is. To once again take her intended place at the centre of society – to be Wise Woman, Teacher, Healer. We are being called upon to lead the way in guiding humanity away from the path of fear and anger and towards making the choices needed in bringing the Collective Consciousness of Humanity – and this beautiful planet – back to the knowledge and wisdom that will lead us to a brighter future.
