Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exploring the mystery, wisdom, and power of the dark phase of the moon's cycle--a lunar-based model for moving through the dark times in our lives with understanding, consciousness, and faith in renewal.

The moon's dark phase has traditionally been a time of fear and superstition, a time associated with death and isolation. The mythical embodiment of these fears is the Dark Goddess. Known around the world by many names--Lilith, Kali, Hecate, and Morgana--the archetypal Dark Goddess represents death, sexuality, and the unconscious--the little understood, often feared aspects of life.

Demetra George combines psychological, mythical, and spiritual perspective on the shadowy, feminine symbolism of the dark moon to reclaim the darkness from oppressive, fear-based images. George offers rites for rebirth and transformation that teach us to tap into the power of our dark times, maximizing the potential for renewal inherent in our inevitable periods of loss, depression, and anger.

Synopsis:

A Goddess version of the Jungian concept of the shadow self which examines how we can learn to understand ourselves more fully and weather the bad times by understanding the symbolism of the "dark" Goddesses in ancient lore. The book aims to maximize the potentiality for meaning, healing and creativity that naturally reside in the dark phase. Demetra George explores the ways that modern culture has denied the dark and thus has remained unaware of the potential for healing and renewal that exist in the dark phase of the cyclic process. By the author of "Asteroid Goddesses" and "Astrology for Yourself".
