The story of Sleeping Beauty teaches us much about shame and how to resolve the destructiveness it so often causes in our relationships.
The Archetypal Interpretation of “Sleeping Beauty” is the Awakening of the Power of Love.
Our fairy tale tells of death and resurrection. The flowering of the hedge of roses and the awakening of the sleeping maiden suggest the earth in lifeless repose which, touched by spring, begins to live anew and blossom as young and beautiful as ever. It suggests also the awakening of sleeping nature at the first glimmering of a new day.
Sleeping Beauty represents the feminine principle of Love through whose awakening the “Inner Land” or spirit is healed.
Awakening the Love within and in each other, honors the Goddess within each woman and promotes a healthy balance between the feminine and the masculine.
