I was actually really disappointed with this entire series.

The first book I got written by Ann Moura was "Mansions of the Moon for the Green Witch" I enjoyed it, as there are few books out that talk about utlizing the power of the lunar mansions for witchcraft. Then, I purchased"Grimoire for the Green Witch" and was slightly disappointed by the lack of detail provided for much of the information. Now, I get the entire"Green Witch" series, and what do I find?

It all appears to be the sam content

Wish there were a, "No Star" option for this book really is unworthy of even a, "star!" There is an offensive and condescending undertone in her works which is not only obvious to the astute reader in this book, but in her other works as well. Of course it's just my humble opinion and someone else may find this book a five star plus type of book. It's all in what resonates with us. Or is it? I've read other books which the writer comes across as offensive and condescending and yet it's tolerable ...more

This is the 2nd installment in her series. I really identify with this author and her books, particularly when her mother passed and the spiritual experience she had during that time. I went through something similar and it really hit home. I also really liked her meditations and the aspect of balancing the light and shadow parts of ourselves. That being said, I do wish she delved more into shadow work - as there is not a lot written about that topic (the general focus is on 'the light' so much ...more

I did skim through large portions of this book because it was just a rehash of the first one (and much of the book is taken up by lists of correspondences).

So why three stars? The main reason for this is because of the meditations, which were fantastic. I also enjoyed Appendix C, an essay called "A Few Thoughts on the Sforza Tarot Deck." Another hidden gem was chapter 9, all about meditation.

I truly wish the author would have focused more on the meditations and left the rest of her book to essay

it was an informative book. there were a few parts of the book that need more info on but that is by no means the authors fault the are topics that could cover a whole book on there own. the only real problem i had was she kept referring to the atheme as a knife except in one or two spots.

Although not as good as the first one, it was worth reading. It provides excellent information on aspects of light and dark.

Very interesting take on the dark half of life, however some of the things that she convey have been done in the original Green Witchcraft book. Overall a must have on the witches book shelfs.
