I am happy you enjoyed the article on Hades. At the time I wrote those pieces, I began with goddesses. Then I got so interested, I went on to study the gods. Even though the mythology is about a man, I find archetypes very powerful. I would just take what I could from the insights, even as a woman. I don't think the sex of the person is important. Both sexes share personality traits and insights into their characters. Persephone is a Hades in the period when she is in the Underworld. So women can be Hades too. You could also choose another goddess from a different culture if that works better for you, as you suggested.
