Notes on the Artemis Archetype: Her Likes and Dislikes

Artemis is wild, independent, unmanageable, and raw. She is all heart and instinct. This list of her likes and dislikes is a starting point to connect with and understanding her.

Artemis likes:

  • Being independent.

  • Being in nature, unburdened by social expectations.

  • Being alone (especially in nature).

  • Feminism, and standing up for women’s rights.

  • Following her heart and listening to her instinct.

  • Expressing herself in a wild, untamed way. She prefers howling and growling rather than writing poetry.

  • Deep conversations that express her heart to others.

  • Feeling beautiful and dancing because it is expressive of the wild, sensual creature she is (and not because it’s attractive to men).

  • Camping, and living in treehouses and caves.

  • Getting dirty, going around in the buff, or wearing whatever’s comfortable.

  • Natural healing and alternative medicine.

  • Reclaiming abandoned structures with nature.

  • Protecting women, children and animals.

  • Hunting animals . . . and sometimes men when they piss her off. (Artemis is the Mother of Creatures and the protector of wild things, but she also hunts and eats them on occasion. Most archetypes have a dark side.)


Artemis dislikes:

  • Being dressed up like a pretty girl.

  • Playing hostess.

  • Socializing at parties and events and other Very Boring Things.

  • Small talk.

  • People encroaching on her personal space.

  • Making decisions based on pure logic (instead of emotion).

  • Preparing elaborate meals.

  • Being ordered around by men.

  • Being an object of sexual attraction for men (Artemis doesn’t want to date. She is a little confused and offended when men look at her that way . . . if not outright pissed off).
