Mars and the Raw, Animalistic female Libido   Leave a comment

This post owes a huge deal to http://www.alternet.org/books/women-sex-monogamy. This book suggests: women’s sexual self-restraint in maintaining civilization is far greater than men’s. Because a) the stakes are higher and b) the promiscuity of her libido is greater. [UPDATE: Which goes some way to explaining the roots of patriarchy.]

Its is Eve’s sexual libido in genesis that is portrayed as destroying Eden and the origin of sin.  Inanna (Venus) in Sumerian mythology is given the Mes by the chief God Enki which included kissing the phallus and the art of love-making.  Inanna the ancient Venus had qualities that the classic Greeks gave to Mars an insatiable lust and a war like stance.  “Hymns to Inanna” have been cited as early examples of the archetype of a powerful, sexual female displaying dominating behaviors and forcing Gods and men into submission to her.  Inanna is the goddess of love – but not marriage. She is connected with extramarital sex and sensual affairs, prowling streets and taverns for sexual adventure.  Gilgamesh points out Inanna’s infamous ill-treatment of her lovers. Inanna also has a very complicated relationship with her lover, Dumuzi, in “Inanna’s Descent to the Underworld”.  Inanna like Eve comes under the influence of male judgement and is found wanting.

Gradually Venus is stripped of her warrior powers and they are given to Mars.  Venus is then punished in mythology for her raw, animalistic sex drive expressed in her affair with Mars.  Venus is punished and humiliated for having a sex drive while Mars seems to be beyond reproach.  Yet Venus cannot disassociate with Mars because he contains the raw sexuality and libido that once belonged to her. At the same time astrologers began to associate Mars in the natal chart of women with the male partner.  Dispossessing them of their raw, animalistic libido as if it had never existed or belonged to them in the first place.  We are now at a stage where females are once again taking back what was always rightly theirs, and owning their sex drives, their sexuality and fertility.

Mars is your sex drive, your sexuality and it is glorious.  It is an expression of who you are, who you have always been wear your Mars with pride because it always belonged to you.
