When I first picked up Grandmother Moon by Z Budapest,
I found in it, the same song that my soul had been singing
for years. Just about everything that Z had to say about
Witchcraft, The Moon, The Goddess and Women's issues
resonated with me on a deep level.
How delightful to see the celebration of women, volumptuous
women, strong women, earthy women, women comfortable
with their bodies and sexuality. The celebration of Goddesses
And this book, more than any other I have found, captures
the pure energy of the Moon's Magic. The gentle feminine
mystery unfolds more and more with each chapter. Z softly
takes her readers by the hand and allows them to feel the
powerful yet peaceful energy of Grandmother Moon.
It is wonderful to read how Z transforms many patriarchal
words to being woman friendly, like 'Queendom'! I have
embraced her terms into my vocabulary with joy.
Z's 'words for The Goddess' are also with me at all my Full
I bought this book ten years ago and after initially reading it
from cover to cover, I don't think a month has gone by over
the years, without me dipping into its luscious pages. A true

I bought this book when I was in my "Discover the Goddess within yourself" stage in life. However, Ms. Budapest does little to further the possibility of a female deity with her moonlore. Mostly post-hippy new age remakes of stuff that has no credence in this world, but helps the old getting older feel better about turning away from Christianity and into something a little daring....like the old pagan gods. Hey, how about that God of Lightning!? Yeah, he really does something for me! Must be nice to create your own "moonworld" and market it in paperback form. Nieve people eat this up; however, I will search for the Goddess elsewhere. With more credible nonsense! No offense to the author intended!
