The beautifully illustrated “Goddesses” describes the mythology and symbolism of seventy goddesses from a wide range of cultures around the world. All the goddesses are placed in the context of their different elements: earth, water, fire and air, or their lights of the sky: sun, moon and stars. This enables the reader to find out more about their own elements and lights, through their connection with one or more goddesses. Each of the major goddesses is introduced over a dedicated full-page spread, minor goddesses are discussed within sections in discursive text. Throughout, the emphasis is on the practical lessons and wisdom that the different goddesses offer. The practical aspect is reinforced in the affirmations, meditations and simple relaxing ceremonies and rituals that are interspersed throughout the text. The goddesses, their elements and constellations in this book can help readers find a new way to tackle the difficulties of life, find a new way and heal old hurts. It can also assist you to find a positive self-image while letting go of self esteem.

“I bought this book because I was curious about the different goddesses and their pantheons. The book describes each Goddess, her corresponding elements, origin, and history within 2-4 pages, which Iconsider very brief. It was a good book but one I would use for references only.” –Sincere Divinity
