About this title


The Fates, also called luck or destiny, are three goddesses who rule over the challenges and opportunities we face in our lives. So powerful that even the other gods and goddesses cannot defy them, the Fates are said to control the thread of each life. The ancient Europeans knew the secrets of communicating with the three sisters who preside over our daily lives, but such arcane knowledge has been lost in modern times.  
In Northern Europe the Fates are known as the Norns: Urdh, Verdandi, and Skuld. The sisters correspond to the past (what has been), the present (what is now), and the future (what must be). The three in turn rule our lives in thirty-year cycles--childhood and young adulthood are ruled by Urdh, adulthood by Verdandi, and the crone years by Skuld. The Fates are especially active at the major life turning points, when we receive new missions for our life's work. These main turning points occur in the early thirties and late fifties when restlessness with your previous life can take on a sense of extreme urgency. At such times, the Fate who oversees your next destiny is reaching out to you. Summoning the Fates is the first book to show how to interact with these primal forces to fulfill the destiny that awaits you. Z. Budapest gives spells, rituals, and prayers to bring the psychological and material support you need into your life.

From the Back Cover:

"Z. spins the old stories, the wise woman ways, the web guarded by the Fates. Who better to tell the tales than the magnificent Z. Budapest? This is another rich, embroidered, detailed, evocative, beautiful, sensual, practical, useful book from the loving heart of Z. Budapest. Of course!"
        -Susan S. Weed, founder, Wise Woman Center, New York,
        author of Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way

"Who should know better about 'Summoning the Fates' than Zsuzsanna Budapest? She got the shaman's call directly through the legacy of her Hungarian homeland. . . . The Old Religion of the Goddess in Europe and the Mediterranean has threaded its subterranean way down through the millennia to arrive at our doorstep today with books like this one that illuminate and reveal the ancient teachings. Brava, Z.!"        
        -Vicky Noble, cocreator of the Motherpeace Cards,
        author of Motherpeace: A Way to the Goddess Through Art, Myth and Tarot                 
        and Shakti Woman: The New Female Shamanism

Praise for The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries

"Z. Budapest continues to open pathways for all of us."
        -Merlin Stone, author of When God Was a Woman

Praise for Grandmother Moon

"Z. Budapest has a delightful and subtle wit. This book pleases and enchants while it instructs; indeed, as it rebuilds the world and history itself--it beguiles. That's magic."        
-Kate Millet, author of Sexual Politics
