The Holy Book of Women’s Mysteries
The Holy Book of Women’s Mysteries (Weiser Books, October 2007) is an essential read for Pagans, feminists and women seeking to learn more about the spiritual path as it relates to the feminine and the Goddess aspects of witchcraft and Wicca. This book is not about reinstating a matriarchy or tearing down patriarchy, it is about women’s spirituality and its relationship with politics and lifestyle.
Z. Budapest is one of the founding mothers of modern women’s witchcraft, beginning with the establishment of the Susan B. Anthony Coven in Los Angeles in 1971. 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. After a nine year battle, she fought the charges and every Tarot reader has her to thank for the right to do so legally.
The Holy Book of Women’s Mysteries is a seminal text that contains invaluable information on Dianic witchcraft and spells, including everyday magick, sabbat rituals, divination methods, and an interesting section on how vegetarian theories and politics relate to witchcraft and the feminine aspect. There is a good deal of information on Goddesses and how the patriarchal religions distorted old myths, as well as the Gods, to serve their own needs. There are several unique Rites of Passage for women and men, and Budapest’s personal life stories are an equally valuable read from her escape across the mountains from Communist Hungary to her fight for women’s religious freedom upon moving to America.

Z. Budapest was born in Budapest, Hungary, the daughter of an artist and witch whose ancient spiritual beliefs had an immense influence on her. Budapest escaped Hungary during the 1956 uprising, and went on to study in Innsbruck, Vienna, and Chicago. Her reputation as a feminist high Priestess, Tarot pioneer, and seminal figure of women’s spirituality movement, is recognized worldwide. She workshops and lectures internationally, and is an educator at the California Institute of Integral Studies and Dianic University Online. Z. lives in Oakland, California. She can be found online at www.zbudapest.com and www.myspace.com/zbudapest.
