Welcome to the world of witches! Part reference book, part testimonial, Witch is Fiona Horne's practical and personal journey into the pagan craft that has spanned centuries and survived civilisations. Witch is an informative, personal, inspirational - and funny! - guide to what witches do, how they do it, and why. Open your mind and body to a universal wellspring of magick, spirituality and the rituals of Wicca. Unleash this ancient force from within and the world around you - heal, hex and protect, and cast your own sacred circle and spells.Witch is set to shatter some commonly-held assumptions about witchcraft - and swell the ranks of witches' covens in the process! Witches have been misunderstood for centuries as advocates of the 'dark side', commonly (and wrongly) accociated with Satan and the Devil, but in reality, witches were natural healers and spiritual guides, and, like everyone else who didn't conform to the predominating religion, Christianity, they were considered evil and dangerous. These very misdirected assumptions all melt into thin air as Fiona details witch history (herstory), what the rituals mean, describing in full the meaning of annual festivals and the life of a witch, including moon worship, reincarnation and magickal music. Throughout are lots of very cool illustrations, from beautiful celtic borders and Japanese manga-style cartoons to personalised tarot cards and photo essays of actual rituals. From tips for effective witchcraft, interviews with High Priests and Priestesses and detailed how-to guides for all kinds of rituals with a whole reference library of contacts (from websites to books), Witch is a cyber-guide for the modern pagan. I am a child of the Universe No less than the seas and the stars Beautiful and Complete in myself Blessed, Essential and Perfect Note: This is not a book about satanism! Witchcraft is an alternative spirituality based on focusing personal energy and harnessing the power of nature through meditation and ritual.
