“Naming the Goddess”, edited by Trevor Greenfield

‘Naming the Goddess’ is a must-have-book for all Witches and Pagans, Shaman and others of that ilk. For those of us who follow a spiritual path incorporating or solely representing the Goddess path, this book is a beautiful read, and a treasure to add to our book collection. Written by a long list of Goddess representatives, the first half of the book contains a comprehensive guide to Goddess in all Her many aspects.

“The Morrigan: Meeting the Great Queens”, by Morgan Daimler

Whenever I begin to read a book on the Morrigan, I become a little worried. First, because there is so little available for research, it can be difficult to speak to what is completely true. In “The Morrigan: Meeting the Great Queens,” I felt completely at ease in the first few pages. By allowing for a broader conversation, as well as an admittance of personal relationship, Morgan Daimler works diligently to bring a newcomer to the Morrigan into the conversation.

“Lupa and Lamb”, by Susan Hawthorne

Susan Hawthorne’s newest book, Lupa and Lamb, is a bold, provocative—dare I say, transcendent—collection of poems, plays, and ‘lost texts’ that reclaims the buried mysteries of ancient sites in Rome, Sardinia Malta, Etruria, and Sicily—all with an unapologetic female, feminist sensibility.

The Virgin and the Baths

Lourdes is a very complicated place. In many ways it is the Glastonbury of France, in that the veils are so thin there that it’s not surprising it’s the most famous visionary town in the world. In Lourdes, when you close your eyes, the ease of meditation or prayer is startling. It is like jumping down into a river to reach the Goddess and being carried along towards her on a fast tide.

“Grail Alchemy: Initiation in the Celtic Mystery Tradition”, by Mara Freeman

This is an important book for me. For years I’ve gleaned bits and pieces of the central myth of Britain, despite misogynist changes made by monkish scribes, and been frustrated by my own lack of knowledge. As a little girl I read books that I barely understood but something struck a chord and I haunted the nearby Pennine hills and valleys, seeking the revolving magical castle of my imagination. Or had I happened upon something deeper?

“Goddess”, by Laura Powell

I suspect few Goddess Pages readers could resist checking out a novel with such a title. When I saw it advertised online I requested a review copy right away, and failed to notice that the book is really aimed at young adults, although that wouldn’t have put me off: I loved Philip Pullman’s “Northern Lights” trilogy*, which is similar in that it also for young adults and set in an alternative universe.

“Astro Moon Diary 2015” and “Seasons & Cycles Calendar 2015”

his vibrantly colourful Northern Hemisphere diary is a great size for carrying about and at 17.5cm x 13cm (7″ x 5″) and 200 pages it fits into all but the smallest of bags. It is light at 250gms, and the spiral binding enables the diary to be opened out flat for easy access to both the stunning pictures and information pages as well as the week-to-view diary. I particularly find the spiral binding helpful when writing in diary entries.

Penelope and the Fish

While Penelope was being born in a small fishing village in the far north, a storm ascended from the surface of the ocean herself. Howling, raging, cursing, the relentless waves scattered the frail fishing boats that had sailed out on what had that morning been a fine summer day. From that day forward, water turned her wrath on Penelope’s life.

Finding the Morrigan

The Morrigan is a Goddess who fascinates many people. In the modern world she is found in many guises and is said to rule over a diverse array of things; in the ancient world she appeared in certain forms and was associated with specific activities and qualities. The picture of the ancient Goddess does not always line up with the modern image embraced by so many, creating a shifting mist that a follower of the Morrigan must wander their way through.

Grandmother in October

 I come to see Her, my Grandmother Mountain,
a pilgrim at Her feet, making homage throughout the year.
Today, in Her Autumn dress, maples already red-orange-yellow,
little touches of color everywhere among the dark firs and pines,

The Lady of the Night

The ever-changing face of the Moon has provided an enigma which humankind has spent millennia trying to solve. In 1962 a carved bone, around 35,000 years old, was found to be engraved with the phases of the Moon; and the riddle continued into the twentieth century where the race to the Moon came to epitomise pioneering development in science and technology.
