"Danielle has beautifully woven a book that everyone can use to enhance their journey into the feminine and the mysteries on many levels. Though it is about the goddesses and the feminine found in the archetypes of astrology, mythology, ritual and the magical, it is not a book for women only. It is a book for all on the seeking path―to the realms of their own inner space; all the types are familiar to us, but now we have the language."―Erin Sullivan, author, astrologer, and teacher

With each goddess entry, Blackwood includes a pathworking, ritual, and recipe (oil, incense, bath salts, etc). The rituals and recipes seem deeply inspired, rather than spells that often appear in witchcraft books that seem repetitive, bland, or (in the case of recipes) untested by the author.
This author writes from a feminist perspective that is warm and encouraging. However, I hope she considers writing a companion book for the god archetypes because she was able to address issues of inequality without making the topic too dry, or dismissing the male divine entirely. I think many pagans such as myself want to connect with healthy masculine energy as well as the divine feminine. Unfortunately, books that really delve into the topic are often lacking in pagan publishing.
I am still in awe...I don't know what I was expecting, but I got more than what I was expecting.
I will definitely be keeping this book and referring back to it; my copious kindle notes/highlights/and bookmarks will serve me well although if you read both ebooks and physical books this is one you will want on your shelf.
This is a book written for women...feminine spirits who truly wish to know about the goddess myth in its entirety divided into 12 facets that mirror astrology. Each astrological sign has a complete profile. Everything you want to know. Things you didn't know you wanted (needed) to know! Crystals, essential oils, the patron goddess, the ruling planets, the history and a little fantasy written...completely a breath (lungs-full breath) of fresh air. I truly hope others read this book, it contains wisdom that we all need.
Thank you to the author for writing such a beautiful book and bestowing the sacred knowledge upon us
thank you to Llewellyn Publications for providing me an advanced electronic copy for review consideration
