About the Maga
A phase of life where a woman no longer bears children, menopause is around the corner, currently occuring or passed by. She is gaining a new sexual power, a new sense of freedom in life. Maga is wiser, often spiritually and emotionally more mature, she knows her life, she has experience. She knows her mind. She is a spiritual creatrix.
With all her life experience she has the ability to truly give to her community if she chooses.
She is fifteen or twenty plus years off from becoming crone in todays times, and now may have grown up / or older children very often, which enables her more freedom to delve deeper into her interests and her own meaning to life.
I first read the word ‘Maga’ on Jane Hardwicke Collins website.
“The name ‘Maga’ came from one of the women in our community, Sylvia Keepers (**). An apt and potent image, ‘Maga’ was intended to represent the female version of ‘Magus’, who is the wise man and the magician.”
