Helpful Score: 2
"Much more than a simple guide to the runes, LADY OF THE NORTHERN LIGHT is a work of original research and revelation. Susan Gitlin-Emmer connects this Nordic divinatory system to its mythic roots in the ancient Great Goddess civilization of 'Old Europe.' The author's own psychic gift for sensing the interconnectedness of words, images, and stories teaches us more about 'reading' the runes in a feminist/illuminated way than could any mere instruction manual." - Gloria Feman Orenstein, Profession of Comparative Literature at U.S.C., and author of THE REFLOWERING OF THE GODDESS

"Susan Gitlin-Emmer has taken each rune, scraped off the layers of patriarchal misinformation, then polished them to a brillant sheen with vast amounts of knowledge about the Scandinavian goddesses as well as craft and magic. This is a book of Goddess-inspired divination." - Geraldine Hatch Hanon, author of SACRED SPACE, A FEMINIST VISION ASTROLOGY. (from the back cover)
