Did not finish. More of the same. More second waver "wombyn" feelings. More "Sister of the sacred red flow". More "the greatest thing a woman can do is have babies!!!" but don't worry!!! - "even if you've never given birth [...] the Moon is here to remind you of your innate womanly nature" (p. 8)

etc etc etc.

For disclosure, I am a cis woman, but I am incredibly sick of this stuff. I want modern witchy books to do better. I am so hungry for books, especially Goddess books that move beyond binary

Wildly disappointed with this -- in fact, a DNF, which is extremely rare for me with books I dislike so intensely.

Butler slathers her text with a hideous patina of gender and sexual essentialism that I simply refuse to tolerate any longer in contemporary pagan works. She might as well hang a sign in floral edged calligraphy pronouncing her space "womyn born womyn" with all the regurgitation of second-wave white "feminist" "women's spirituality" associated with such active discrimination and dis

Moon Power helped me learn more about each individual moon sign and the Goddess' and power animals that are connected them.

In the beginning of the book, Butler provided a brief story of Sol and Luna. That is one thing I wish went into a little more depth, however, she did provide references to other writings for t ...more

The basic information in this book is good. It provides a good overview of the moon in each sign.

This book is written primarily for heterosexual cis-women. I wish it had been more inclusive.

I also have a problem with the author encouraging devotion to deities outside ones’ own religion. If you’re not Hindu you probably shouldn’t be calling on a Hindu goddess that you most likely know very little about.

It a good book I really liked it, the reason I give it three stars is because I wish it had more options in the rituals and it would combine more astrology into it. Like I wish it went more in depth.
