Product description

Magic is all around us - in stones, flowers, stars, the dawn wind and the sunset cloud. All we need is the ability to see it, understand it, and apply it. Natural Magic explains how to practise the age-old white magic that village wise women have used for centuries. It deals with the magic of herbs and flowers, of the four elements, of numbers and colours, amulets and talismans, how to read cards, how to interpret dreams, and much more. There are chapters on the secrets of sex magic, and on the use of traditional spells. If you want to learn to charm warts, to cast a love spell, or to plant a magical garden, this book will tell you how. An essentially practical treatise, which sets out to show how magic can be for everyone, and how, indeed, it has always been inherent in human life and nature. Both those who are new to the practice of magic and those with experience will find it delightful reading and an informative handbook for use in daily life.

Editorial reviews

In the cozy accents of a British gardening columnist discussing the proper approach to cabbage worms, a practicing witch reveals such dark truths as how to improve sex (judicious quantities of your favorite liqueur - she particularly recommends Strega - in beautiful glasses) and the properties of colors (fill a blue glass bottle with water and leave it in the sunlight several days before imbibing the results, which "will be beneficial to health and psychic sensitivity"). Then you might want to know how to remove evil spirits from the garden (plant a rowan tree, of course) or house (three peeled onions hung at strategic points for seven nights, then thrown into a running stream). . . . Laughable but affable. (Kirkus Reviews)
