Each section includes the history and lore behind the goddess, and three simple spells to invoke her help:

Health and wellness (Athena, Sekhmet, Amaterasu, Sarasvati, and Oya)
Relationships (Aphrodite, Persephone, Mary, Hera, and Parvati)
Hearth and home (Brigid, Hestia, Juno, Bast, and Changing Woman)

Abundance and fortune (Lakshmi, Kuan Yin, Hathor, Demeter, and Fortuna)
Group magic

For the busy young woman who wants it all but needs help getting it, Goddess Spells for Busy Girls can help you achieve love, balance, protection, and abundance in your life.

Review: I found to be a plethora of information, I liked the background on all the different Goddesses. Some I was familur with some I wasn't. There were the major Goddesses but also less known ones, that are powerful but tend to get less attention today. I liked the variety of spells and the ease at which most were accompliseh. The majority using everyday household items. Many of the spells were self- interest spells, such as finding confidence, creativity, or just giving yourself a magic boast to deal with life in general. I thought this was a great approach to a spell book.
While solitary myself, the group magic was educational. I found the seasonal charts helpful as well. If your interested in working with Goddesses then this is a great source to get you started with magical tools. spells, and knowlege.
