The Crone. The Crone archetype has been neglected, shoved to the back of our minds, and only brought out at Samhain. She has been made into the wicked witch of children’s nursery times and fables. She is a spiritual woman of wisdom, done with childbearing and is now free to be herself and explore her own spirituality. She's the Matriarch, the keeper of tradition and she walks the line between twilight and darkness and understands the importance of death and renewal.
