A fascinating exploration of the Greek goddesses and women of Greek mythology, in relation to the astrological signs. Each chapter of this book follows an astrological sign and details its connection to a goddess of Greek mythology, providing illuminating and engrossing explorations and background to the Greek myths. The chapters bridge the gap between ancient and modern, exploring more recent examples of brave and wonderful women for each astrological sign.
At its core, this book appreciates that women’s experiences are not all the same and should not be put into the same overused stereotypes; instead it offers a different and refreshing perspective of female archetypes, illustrated by the lives of extraordinary women both alive and dead. Goddess Astrology contains excerpts from classical texts, newly translated by author Elisabeth Brooke.
