But you would rather I told you I missed Potto and Virginia, those silky creatures with a barb under their fur - and so do I, and wonder very much whether they would come and stay with me when I get back? Potto would like the puppies, Virginia would like her nice big bed and coffee at eleven - and all the affection that would be shown her at hours licit and illicit.
—Vita Sackville-West, in a letter to Virginia Woolf, dated 24 July 1929. (via sangfroidwoolf)
Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.
