This year-long Arc of the Goddess course will take you on a personal journey of discovery, taking each month as the wheel of the year turns and introducing you to different goddesses and pantheons with your choice (or theirs…) about who you work with and how you work with them. The authors hope to help you connect with the magical energies of each month as well as giving you lots of practical exercises to work with and suggestions on how to make your spiritual connection stronger. At the end of the course it is hoped you will not only have discovered your own personal pantheon of goddesses to work with but also uncovered The Goddess Within…

The Arc if the Goddess by Rachel Patterson and Tracey Roberts is more of a guided course, as opposed to simply being a non-fiction book. The two authors have a combined wisdom of thirty years of experience in a myriad of magical paths.
The Arc of the Goddess is a yearlong course that explores the Wheel of the Goddess. It starts in January with the Earth Guardians. It moves on through the Creatrix, Elemental and Seasonal Goddesses. Each month contains nine Goddesses for a total of 108. This is a great way to pursue the Goddess study for your own interest or pursuing a high priestess certification in the Re-formed Congregation of the Goddess.
The book is chock full of information including various Goddess festivals for very day of the year, meditations, crystal and spell information, and even recipes, which should be expected with two kitchen witches writing the book.
I was very excited when I heard about the book and anxious to read it. It did not disappoint. I recommend this book to anyone who is open to learning more about the Goddess and magic. It is a great starting point to discover several deities, but is does not stand as an exhaustive study on each Goddess, for that, you’ll have to read dozens of books and meditate.
