My Review, 3 stars:
This book is a pretty solid guide for those who connect with moon magic. There were some points that really resonated and were extremely helpful to me, and others that just didn’t stick. Quite a bit of repetition, BUT I suppose it’s necessary as a whole. I found myself spacing off as I read and then having to go back and re-read it because I’m that person who just can’t handle the thought of having missed important stuff… but then afterward, realizing that I totally just wasted my time and should have cut those pages as a loss.
The first quarter or so of the book is fantastic! There are lots of wonderful points and it explains in depth the New and Full moon cycles, giving you a very pinpointed aspect of emotions and manifestation tools based on the energies of the moon at any given point. I loved loved the loved the first portion. After that, it begins to break down certain houses in astrology and what to focus on based on your own personal birth chart. Then, it goes into quite a bit of detail on eclipses, not only as an overall energy base but each individual house and what it means when eclipses are in those houses. Along with how to utilize these portals so to speak. Despite the (several) links sending you to Yasmin’s website for free charts and individualized house placement and sooooo much more, I still got super confused, all the while repetition was in order.
That said, I’ll surely be keeping my kindle copy on hand for reference as I continue to research and learn a bit more about the cosmos and such. I find it to be extremely fascinating, and quite honestly wish I was better with numbers because that would help a lot LOL! Also, I do recommend giving Yasmin Boland’s website a look, even more so than this book. There is so much to be learned there and it’s an absolutely lovely site! A solid 3 stars for me, but only because I went in a little too excited and came out feeling a tad disappointed in the overall product.
