We are never in doubt of the Witch in Vivienne Moss as she leads the reader quite magically, beyond the veil and over the (h)edge to a place between the worlds... where Hekate is.
Here, the Goddess of Witches waits at the Crossroads ready to open the gate and lift the veil to those brave enough to enter Her domain.
It is an account of a deeply personal journey into these Shadow-Lands where the writer surpasses the confines of academia and historic tradition to a place where she experiences the spiritual energy of the Dark Muse. Her muse.
When one is so inspired by their own perception of the divine and can write about it with love and passion - they are standing in their truth and that is a place of power.
The reader is drawn into this place whether he knows it or not and can't help but be part of that shared experience. The more magically aware the reader is, the more they will receive what the writer has transmitted through the power of the word. It is how the Great Work is done.
The canny Witch knows this and Vivienne Moss knows this. It is clear to see throughout the book. It is not a book for the faint hearted and it is not a book for anyone on the lookout for a quick magical fix.
It is a book of Magic which goes deeper than the surface of any 'how-to' compilation...it cuts to the blood and bone of the earthly experience and enters the unearthly. The world of Hekate and the world of its writer.
The reader will be touched by both.
After devouring the book in one sitting and hungry for the next, I'm hoping it won't be too long a wait. Vivienne Moss is a magical writer in every sense of the word.
Well done to her and Hekate... a great partnership and a gift shared.
Thank you to both, I loved it.
