As Psyche continues her journey to really grow up (aka her hero's journey), her second task requires that she obtain golden fleece from huge aggressive rams. This second task seems just as impossible as the first given the rams could easily trample her. However, the reeds in the field, as did the ants, come to her aid, advising her to wait until sundown. Once the rams disperse, she can safely pick strands of fleece off the brambles. Psyche's ability to acquire the golden fleece without being crushed is a metaphor for a every woman's task of gaining power without losing her innate sense of connectedness and compassion.
