by Renna Shesso (Goodreads Author)
Much of math history comes to us from early astrologers who needed to be able to describe and record what they saw in the night sky. Whether you were the king's court astrologer or a farmer marking the best time for planting, timekeeping and numbers really mattered. Mistake a numerical pattern of petals and you could be poisoned.

I was always useless at Math.
Over the last year I have been trying understand sacred geometry.
I learn when I am truly interested in a subject and can apply it to life and art.
This is a great book for people like myself who see a brick wall when it comes to mathematics .
This book uses examples of numbers being present in nature , art and music making it easier to grasp.
'Math For Mystics' is very well written, and easy to understand. I have read similar books before , and this is one of the easiest to understand. Renna Shesso has inserted a lot of personality, parts are almost whimsical. I finished it, and my son started reading it. I highly recommend.
I was disappointed. I was expecting more math and less mysticism. Actually, there is hardly any math in this book at all. It's mostly about numbers and counting. Still, if you wish to know what numberical value is assigned to the planet Saturn, this might be a helpful book.
I couldn't give this book a rating. While it made intriguing mystical connections with mathematical concepts, it had too much mysticism and not enough math for my taste. Nor did it provide enough evidence for a lot of its assertions. However, there are many interesting points and connections made.
I'm stalled on this one. It's interesting, but lost me when it started talking about how I could use the information in my spells. I'm not that kind of gal. So, this gets shelved for now, back to use as a reference book.
I’m Renna Shesso, author of A Magical Tour of the Night Sky: Use the Planets and Stars for Personal and Sacred Discovery and Math for Mystics. I'm also a shamanic healing practitioner and teacher, and a reader and teacher of Tarot. I research and write on a range of spiritual, artistic and Goddess-infused topics.More about Renna Shesso...
