Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
A memorable reading experience, the reader will find much to enjoy in going through this well-written look at the goddess. This is a new edition of an old classic in the field, originally published in 1985. The Preface to this new edition is interesting and sets the tone for what is to come.
The book contains two parts. Part One is about the Magic Circle Maze Dance, and discusses in-depth the working the circle information.
Part Two is a precise look at the evocation of the goddess and the meaning of the planetary being. During the reading of this section, the reader will find information on evoking the goddess, ancient heroes and the goddess powers, the Isis mysteries revealed and explained, the trembling of the orthodoxy veil, the Lady Venus in Rosicrucian Alchemy, the Faery Queen and the magic mountain, and the initiation of the earth.
For the reader interested in the role of goddess thought initiation, worship, and ritual in the western mystery tradition, this is a fine book. There is much enjoyment and education in this book. A nice reference book to have on hand!
