Meet Hera

The Homefront Heroine

Hera is a husband hunter of the retro sort. She configures her life to marry a doctor, lawyer or CEO. Prizing devotion, she believes in letting her partner rule and exacting revenge on anyone interfering with her marriage master plan. If you harbor these dreams, be prepared for mind games, betrayal and jealousy. Getting stuck being your man's better half and not taking charge of your own destiny is misery making. Eventually you'll ask, "Is this all I get to be?"

Stop playing the victim. The journey to selfhood is never through someone else. To become whole, a Hera woman must consciously and repeatedly align herself with the strengths of other goddesses within the mythic sisterhood to grow beyond the role of wife. She'll have to relax the grip on those around her and create an independent life outside her gilded cage.
