This season we will continue to focus on archetypes and their meanings, but the 12 episodes will revolve around common female archetypes. We begin with the classic Virgin:
The archetype of the Virgin is centered around the expectations of her community. Initially, the Virgin conforms to the wishes of others but her unproven potential lies dormant within her. Eventually, she begins to listen to her own inner voice, embarking on a journey toward creativity, spirituality and sexual awakening.
