The Primal Woman of the Nine Heavens is a Taoist goddess of shamanism, martial arts, warfare, mysticism, esoteric knowledge, and sacred sex. She teaches those arts as one integral, holistic whole, not as distinct, unconnected skills. The Woman of the Nine Heavens transmits esoteric knowledge, skills and techniques to the worthy, including various divination techniques, mediumship, and the shamanic art of soul journeying, called star-stepping in Chinese Taoist terminology. She supplies magical texts, weapons, and talismans to devotees she deems worthy. She has access to the secrets of the universe and may be persuaded to share some.
