One of the things Kati has said about the Mermaid archetype that I love is that Mermaids are often found alone doing whatever has captured their attention, happy in their own little world, completely absorbed. At best, they are self-contained. At worst, maybe slightly self-absorbed?
That description is definitely true of me. Once I am absorbed in something, I forget about the cold, cruel world for a while and quickly become absorbed instead in the book I'm reading, the movie I'm watching or even my cup of tea.
Does any of that resonates with you? If it does, or if you are playful, quirky & creative, Mermaid might be a good archetype to explore.
See you next time!
