During the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, Z. Budapest narrowly escaped a massacre. Was it chance that spared her life, or destiny?
Budapest, a pioneer of the women''s spirituality movement, introduces us to the three Fates that rule our lives. Not even the gods and goddesses can escape these raw forces of nature presiding over the past, present, and future. Budapest uses fairy tales, historical lore, and personal anecdotes to describe the three sacred sisters who are especially active during our thirty-year life cycles: Urdh (youth), Verdandi (adulthood), and Skuld (the crone years).
Want a taste of the cosmic soup bubbling in Fate''s cauldron? Budapest also offers heartfelt advice, exercises, and rituals to help you connect with the Fates and embrace your own unique destiny.
Budapest''s rituals for summoning the conductors of luck combine sensuality and joy with reverence for the unknown. . . . This charming book shows readers how rituals and faith can lead us inward to find the wisdom and goodness of the Goddess in our own lives. -"Publishers Weekly"
