The Power of the Feminine
A deck of cards for women of all ages to talk about everything that strengthens the feminine.
This feminine power deck of cards is a simple tool for women of all ages to maintain a conversation in safe spaces about the feminine universe and everything that strengthens our power. It is a way of supporting our internal processes, reinforcing our bonds with other women, and promoting sorority when our life stories and experiences create empathy amongst ourselves.
The 79 cards in this deck are part of a methodology called the Water Mirror (espelho d’agua), which is a metaphor for the object of direct reflection, like a mirror turned towards our innermost feminine truths that lead us to the transparency of water. The game is an invitation to listen more closely to everything that might empower us, as we have so many social challenges that are still so repressive and patriarchal, whatever may be our culture.
The texts accompanying each card were created from an intense intuitive process and a thorough research on everything that permeates the feminine, and were written over a nine-month period, the exact time of a pregnancy. In the creative process, I considered the cultural diversity of different societies and searched for themes that are common to all of them.
