Summoning the Fates|
Summoning the Fates: A Guide to Destiny and Sacred Transformation
Author: Zsuzsanna Budapest
Publisher: Llewellyn Publications
Category: Spirituality Level: All
During the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, Z. Budapest narrowly escaped a massacre. Was it chance that spared her life, or destiny?
In Summoning the Fates, Budapest, a pioneer of the women's spirituality movement, introduces us to the three Fates that rule our lives. Not even the gods and goddesses can escape these raw forces of nature presiding over the past, present, and future. Budapest uses fairy tales, historical lore, and personal anecdotes to describe the three sacred sisters who are especially active during our thirty-year life cycles: Urdh (youth) , Verdandi (adulthood) , and Skuld (the crone years) .
"Budapest's rituals for summoning the conductors of luck combine sensuality and joy with reverence for the unknown. . . . This charming book shows readers how rituals and faith can lead us inward to find the wisdom and goodness of the Goddess in our own lives." --Publishers Weekly

I have just finished reading your book, "Summoning the Fates, " one of the best books I have read in a long time. I reached 50 years old last May and it is amazing, as I look back on my life, how it coincided with the stages of the book. I will recommend the book to everyone. I am one half Italian on my father's side, and one half Hungarian on my mother's side. I have always identified strongly with the Italian side but felt bad that I did not really identify with my Hungarian heritage. Your book has finally given me a sense of identity with this heritage and I would love to learn more. I now feel that this is where my affinity and love of a female Goddess comes from. Having been raised Catholic, I have always been strongly drawn to Mary. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and helping me find the other half of my existence which has been missing all of these years.

About the Author
Zsuzsanna E. Budapest was born in Budapest, Hungary. In 1971, she founded the Susan B. Anthony Coven Number 1, the first feminist Witches' coven, which became the role model for thousands of other spiritual groups. The California Institute for Integral Studies recently recognized Budapest as a foremother in the women's spirituality movement. She currently stars on her own cable television show, 13th Heaven, and is the director of the Women's Spirituality Forum.
Z Budapest is one of the founding mothers of modern women's witchcraft. She catapulted herself into the media spotlight when she was tried as a witch and found guilty in 1975 after being arrested on Venice Beach for reading tarot cards. She fought the charges and after a nine year battle, won the right for every tarot reader to do so legally.
Author's Notes: Want a taste of the cosmic soup bubbling in Fate's cauldron? Summoning the Fates offers heartfelt advice, exercises, and rituals to help you connect with the Fates and embrace your own unique destiny.
