A Sourcebook to Goddess-Centered Living|
THE SPINDLE HEARTH
Author: Kate Dooley
Publisher: Yarrow Press
Category: spirituality, pagan, devotional Level: Intermediate
Magic is practical: the air you breathe, the fire of your will, your strong emotions, all coming together into form. This book is a window into methods used by one hearth keeper to enhance her own life and those of her kindred and family through the use of magic.
It’s a homespun treasury of skills: divination, prayers, meditations, and rites that will enable you to build your inner fire for the practical purpose of making daily life better.
The exercises given within this book are centered on the energies of the Twelve Powers embodied by the Goddesses known as Handmaidens to Frgga: Syn, Fulla, Gna, Var, Lofn, Eir, Sjofn, Hlin, Saga, Gefjon, Snotra and Vor; twelve powers who give fire to the center, to All-Mother, the Goddess of the Hearth.
Learn about daily rites, needfire, and ways to keep Frigga’s sacred day and how to apply this knowledge to your own life from this sourcebook born of the need to engage the magic of All-Mother.
Author's Notes: Have you ever wondered what Goddess would say to you if you met Her face to face? I did. So I asked.
Long ago, our ancestors knew that the Gods spoke by way of the stars. They still do. As I met Frigga and the twelve who are called her Handmaidens, I found that each embodied the energy of one of the signs in Astrology.
After walking with the Thirteen for a year and a day, my husband and I hosted a gifting in our home and invited our neighbors. The Goddess-Handmaiden we honored that day was Gefjon. Myth has it that Gefjon was given a gift by a king who thought her only a beggar. But as Goddess and Witch, she took that small offer and made of it a homeland for herself and those who came after.
I can look into my own birthchart and see why Gefjon and her gift lit up for me that day and through their charts, I can see why she highlighted the moment for many of our neighbors.
Without creating a whole new religon in the pages of The Spindle Hearth, I give enough for you to take note of your own "Goddess message" and see what She's saying to you. Your message from Goddess is like no other. Theirs won't fit you -- each path is unique.
If you'd like to meet each of the Handmaidens and Frigga, this book is full of simple rites and beginnings to lead you toward knowing them. Once you've met, the skies are open and the Goddess message in your star chart is easy to read.
