This is the most sensational book. Get it if you are interested in astrology, witchcraft, myths, Goddesses, reincarnation, sex, history, fairies, prostitution, spells, Cinderella, Pagans, Sleeping Beauty, cats or magic.
Barbara Walker is mega-Cancerian in that she is not only a recovering a lot of forgotten or concealed feminine/Pagan knowledge, she is a world-expert on knitting. I love this book for all the info but she is also a fab writer, blessed with a wry humour even when writing about subjects that one just knows would be difficult.
eg; I just opened it one page & I get the fascinating story of Thais, the mistress of Alexander the Great & Tanit, the Phoenician Venus whose priestesses were all renowned astrologers.
