Most of the book is taken up with the cards, giving the goddesses in alphabetical order. For each goddess there is a black-and-white image of the card, a poem, a “Mythology” section, a “Meaning of the Card” section, and a “Ritual Suggestion”. I like the poems, but the mythology section for each card is a bit short for my tastes, just a single paragraph. The meaning gives several statements or descriptions of each goddess’ energy and then offers questions to divine that energy in your own life.
The best, and longest, section for each card is the ritual suggestion. These are suggested path-workings for each card, and could easily be recorded, or simply read a number of times to cement them in your mind. Occasionally, I felt these path-workings strayed rather far from the image on the card, though staying within the energy of the goddess. However, they are all intriguing, and those I have tried have been powerful.
The book offers three spreads: the Yoni three-card spread, the Place of Opposites four-card spread, and the Goddess Support Group spread, with as many goddesses as you feel you want or need. There are also sample readings with the first two of these spreads. I especially like the Yoni spread, which looks to three aspects of the Goddess in three areas of your life, and can also be adapted nicely to different definitions of the triple aspects of the Goddess.Read more ›
Great oracle set and a great gift for the thinking woman who would like to know a few more women with curiosity and vigour satisfied, a peek at mythology and history and their significance in our world views today.
This is in my opinion a great different gift for the woman you wish to respect for her dynamic difference.
The book which accompanies the deck has, for each goddess, a "poem" regarding the meaning of the card and some of the mythology of the goddess, a text with a version on the mythology of that goddess, a suggestion of ritual to make contact with the energy of the deity.
The mythology on each goddess is mostly accurate, although it pertains in each case only one mythological story and only one version on it (some myth variations are not explained nor included). Nevertheless, it is very helpfull if you don't know the arquetype you are dealing with, and makes for a lot of extra support on understanding the readings and interpreting some "hidden" meanings on them, related to the goddesses arquetypes.
At some level I was a bit disappointed with the meaning atributed to some cards when comparing it to the mythology and meaning of the goddess. Meaning that in some cases, both the meanings assotiated traditionally with the goddess and the myth behind the deity is a bit far from the meaning that is atributed to the goddess card, which is a bit odd. Granted that you are supposed to use intuition and learn more about each goddess and their myths, but still... It would be usefull not to see such a discrepancy in something that should be the basic meaning of the card when drawn. This, however occurs in very few cards...
Some of the rituals were a bit disapointing also, because some of their similarity. Regardless, this detail does not mean that any of them are ineffective!
The cards themselves have a very good feel to them and are easy to use.Read more ›
