Rae Beth has been studying Pagan traditions and woman's mysteries for many years. Her interest grew when her involvement with the women's movement and her work as an astrologer and tarot consultant converged in Goddess spirituality. She became a self-initiated witch in 1978, perceiving the role of witch as a poetic symbol of women's psychic ideals, such as a reverence for the Earth. Later she also came to understand the role of the male witch, as present-day shaman and brother to the wise woman or witch priestess. Born a schoolteacher's daughter, she was once a student teacher herself, specializing in English literature. She now writes magical poetry. An active environmentalist, Rae Beth lives just outside Bath, where she enjoys country walks, and is married with two children.
This is a book which should grace the bookshelf of every budding occultist. * Moonshine *
