[size=+1]Description:[/size]
Discover the hidden mysteries of the sun goddesses and reclaim the all-but-lost archetype of the solar feminine. While today the sun is often seen as a masculine divinity, for many cultures throughout history it was the ultimate symbol of feminine power and creation. Join author Stephanie Woodfield as she explores solar-goddess mythology from around the world and shows you how to work with this forgotten side of the Goddess in a modern spiritual system.

Drawing Down the Sun features fourteen different goddesses, and provides practical guidance for embracing their divine spirit through pathworking, rituals, and spellcraft. Learn how to bring abundance into your life with the Baltic goddess Saule. Call upon the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet for strength and courage. Draw upon the sun’s healing energy with the Celtic Brighid. With invocations, spells, and incense recipes, as well as instructions for solar magick, meditations, and more, this comprehensive guide is perfect for connecting with the solar feminine.

Oh, now that's not something I see often. I may need to track this down.

The section on Saule was one of the reasons I bought this book.

That depends on what you already know about Her, I think.  

For me, it's a good section,  because I learned things. But I was starting from not-quite zero. It's not super long, and mostly lays out the extant mythology about Saule. That info might well be available other places, but I haven't really looked very hard, so I don't know.

In combination with the other sections I'm interested in, I'm finding the book worth the money overall. But if I was buying it *only* for  one specific section, I might not.
