Review by Daven
Well, this certainly lives up to it’s title. This is a book designed for all those out there who wish to explore the “darker” side of femininity.
While in and of itself, this is not a bad thing, there are any number of ways this could have been presented. Personally, I think the author did a wonderful job presenting it as she has.
For an overview, the book takes the Moon cycles of the New Moon (Dark Moon) and writes a series of rituals to perform to explore the Goddess aspect that she feels is associated with that moon. So, in the month of May, we have a ritual that can be done to get us closer to the Dark Aspect of the Gemini Moon. Working with the Goddess of that moon, The Twins who are the focus of Gemini, and other mythological aspects that are linked with that season’s moon.
