Summary

Exploring the mystery, wisdom, and power of the dark phase of the moon's cycle - a lunar-based model for moving through the dark times in our lives with understanding, consciousness, and faith in renewal.

The moon's dark phase has traditionally been a time of fear and superstition, a time associated with death and isolation. The mythical embodiment of these fears is the dark goddess. Known around the world by many names - Lilith, Kali, Hecate, and Morgana - the archetypal dark goddess represents death, sexuality, and the unconscious - the little understood, often feared aspects of life.

Demetra George combines psychological, mythical, and spiritual perspective on the shadowy, feminine symbolism of the dark moon to reclaim the darkness from oppressive, fear-based images. George offers rites for rebirth and transformation that teach us to tap into the power of our dark times, maximizing the potential for renewal inherent in our inevitable periods of loss, depression, and anger.

One of the best - ever!

Was not prepared for this to be one of the most profound spiritual books I’ve ever read.
Some real game changes in there, the 1st chapter blew me away.
There was a lot of mythology which I found quite long and not really necessary but it came around in the end and hearing the authors view on it was helpful
Would highly recommend. Great narrator too.

grounded content & great narration

I really appreciated the whole book, it's content & the narrator. I get bothered when books on these topics tend to lack groundedness. This book was very approachable & down to Earth, especially for topics like spirituality, mythology & esoterism.

I regret buying this book

I should have checked it out more before I bought it. Starting with the myth of all "Humankind" being matriarchal put me off. When? Where? It's the kind of broad brush that is disturbing. I wish I could get my money back.

we are right where we need to be. Dimitri ❣️

my girlfriend and I were just talking about this sort of evolution into the emotional knowing from inner child and wise woman who's ready to pass the crown of thorns.

A lot of Wisdom for the Discerning

This book and Demetra’s thoughts on the symbolism of the dark moon phase have been very eye opening for me. Her ideas are thought provoking and given me a lot to take into consideration as I take on life and its ebb and flow.

This is a provocative book that invites us to pull back layers of the cyclical nature of energies, thoughts and experiences that inform how may we embody or manifest life.

Great Read

As a student of astrology and Woman this book touches on themes that I have intuitively felt most of my life about the Divine Feminine energy. If you are open and searching for more depth and understanding to our current condition as Women this is a definite read to add to your collection and share with others.
I just need a hard copy now!

A MUST-READ, "healing power of the archetypal femi

Demetra George has done an excellent job exploring the mysteries, wisdom, and power of the dark phases of the moon's cycles through the archetypes of the Dark Goddess. Using mythology, psychology, and astrology, the author has given us rites for rebirth and transformation.

"Mysteries of the Dark Moon" is somewhat repetitive but hang in there with the reading because George offers an enlightening, consciousness, and faith of renewal - with the little understood, often feared aspects of life.

beautifully done!

This is so much more than i had anticipated! Certainly takes one on a journey through healing, sharing, pain, loss, growth, and inspiration to better the present and future of the feminine principles that reside in all. My words fall short of the masterpiece this truly is.
