Michelle Skye is a regular contributor to Llewellyn’s Almanac’s and other periodicals, and there has since been a few sequels to this book (Goddess Aloud, Goddess Afoot).  I found the book very interesting, including sections on each goddess, the holiday or moon that they represent, a guide to a pathworking, guided meditation, an invocation, and a ritual.  The guided meditation is most likely too hard to memorize, so I was thinking of recording it and playing it back.  I do have a few hesitations about where the author placed each Goddess in terms of the wheel of the year, but I guess you have to pick and choose where to place each Goddess for the purpose of a book.  I have read through most of this book but have yet to do any of the guided meditations or pathworking.  But there is yet time!
