"Exhausted? Angry? Broke? The Goddesses are here to help!
Goddess magic is powerful magic: with the help of the right goddess, simple spells can yield amazing results. In Goddess Spells for Busy Girls, Jen McConnel offers 80 spells imbued with the vibrant force of 25 Goddesses from around the globe.
McConnel provides an introduction to 25 celestial ladies, to make sure you are asking the right goddess for help: Athena for memory retention, Aphrodite to gain confidence, Persephone to find you path, and Sekhmet to prevent illness. Each section includes the history and lore behind the goddess, and three simple spells to invoke her help:
Health and wellness (Athena, Sekhmet, Amaterasu, Sarasvati, and Oya)
Relationships (Aphrodite, Persephone, Mary, Hera, and Parvati)
Hearth and home (Brigid, Hestia, Juno, Bast, and Changing Woman)
Travel and protection (Kali, Isis, Hecate, Artemis, and Gaia)
Abundance and fortune (Lakshmi, Kuan Yin, Hathor, Demeter, and Fortuna)
For the busy young woman who wants it all but needs help getting it, Goddess Spells for Busy Girls can help you achieve love, balance, protection, and abundance in your life."
*Thank you Weiser Books for sending me a copy for review*
Goddess Spells for Busy Girls, is just that!
Have a broken heart? Not enough money? Sick or stressed? Or just need a boost? Goddess Spells and at least of one of the twenty five goddesses featured in this book will have something for you.
Each spell is short quick and easy to do! Each is laid out just like a recipe, only requiring a few things that you're likely to already have at home, along side a small set of instructions.
This is the first non-fiction book, I've read (in a long time) and reviewed. And when I was asked to review Goddess Spells for Busy Girls, and I had no other choice but to accept, by purely seeing and LOVING the title of this book!
Goddess Spells for Busy Girls isn't a story, there is no main character, there are no twists and turns, and there isn't any cliff hanger ending. Instead Goddess Spells is a book filled entirely spells, descriptions of twenty five different goddesses and even small glimpses into the author's life at the beginning of each chapter.
There were so many different types of spells, for so many different types of situations, and each needed only a small list of household items. Not having the items needed to fulfill a spell was my biggest worry, but I soon realized that all the required ingredients can easily be found in a grocery store, or local specialty store.
Some of the spells include:
Spell to Spark Creativity (page 27)
Spell to Promote Power (page 35)
Spell for Tough Choices (page 49)
Spell for Peace (page 81)
Spell for Protection (page 124)
I enjoyed not only learning about goddesses, the author, but also preforming some of the spells myself!
