Pagan Portals - The Triple Goddess
By: Rachel Patterson - Moon Books, $10.95
Description: An updated approach for working with the Triple Goddess in modern times The Triple Goddess has three facets: the maiden, the mother, and the crone.
The Triple Goddess represents many things such as birth, life, death and the phases of the moon, waxing, full and waning. Whilst in the form we recognize it may well be a modern idea, it still gives a wonderful way of working with the goddess and her phases, to help us evolve and understand our own pathway through life and this journey can help you to embrace your own personal power.
Verdict: Written by author Rachel Patterson - who, aside from writing over a dozen books on the Pagan subject, but who also practices both magic and paganism along with being a High Priestess of the Kitchen Witch Coven, and an Elder of the Kitchen Witch School of Natural Witchcraft - Pagan Portals - The Triple Goddess is chock full of not only practical tips, but oodles of metaphysical wisdom.
Here in Pagan Portals - The Triple Goddess, Patterson focuses on the pagan history and the myths that circulate, but moreover reveals how modern devotion and worship now factor in to bring a more grounded philosophy to the phases detailed above.
Focusing on the aforementioned Triple Goddess having three facets: the maiden, the mother, and the crone, Patterson first gives an introduction to herself, before explaining how the book works and what you should be able to garner from it.
The Triple Goddess represents many things such as birth, life, death (sometimes known as the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone), each of which symbolizes both a separate stage in the female life cycle and a phase of the Moon, and often rules one of the realms of heavens, earth, and underworld.
Progressing deeper from there, we get subject chapters such as Donít be Limited by Labels, The Triple Goddess: Her History, and Working with the Triple Goddess and each has multiple sub-chapters within them.
