The Power of the Crone

Oct 13th, 2017 | By | Category: Books, Books for Goddess

Modern Paganism often divides female divinity into the forms of maid, mother and crone. Often the maid and mother archetypes seem to get the most attention.

Here are two books that particularly explore the power of the crone aspect of the Goddess.

Kissing the Hag by Emma Restall Orr explores the Dark Goddess and the unacceptable aspects of womanhood that are so often pushed into shadow. Age itself is something that we don’t honour in women – often the reverse. This book explores womanhood from girlish innocence to hag status.
