Folk Magic, Fairy Lore & Herb Craft
Green Witchcraft Series #1
by Ann Moura
Learn the basics of Witchcraft from a third-generation Witch raised in a family tradition. Positive, practical, and easy to use, Green Witchcraft brings together the best of both modern Wicca and the author's family heritage of herb craft and folk magic.
Green Witchcraft explores the fundamentals of the Wiccan religion, providing magical training for the independent thinker. Step-by-step instructions on a wide variety of magical techniques as well as basic rules of conduct make this the ideal book to get you started. Green rituals for self-initiation, rites of passage, seasonal celebrations and activities provide an excellent foundation for your own magical tradition.
Discover the fine art of spellcasting, the magical uses of herbs, divination with the tarot and more. Explore the Sabbats, Esbats, and other rituals attuned to the cycles of nature and the universal powers. Find out for yourself what this organic approach to Witchcraft is all about.
Witchcraft is more than a religion, it is truly a spiritual way of life. Sometimes people focus on only one or two aspects of Witchcraft instead of appreciating it for the fullness of its beliefs and practices. I think you will find that if you study Green Witchcraft by Ann Moura you will have the basics in all areas of the Craft of the Wise.
For example, did you know that the ancient roots of Wicca can be traced all the way back to ancient India? You can find this amazing history in Green Witchcraft (the author majored in history and used to be a history instructor).
You will also learn the basic tenets of Witchcraft as focused in the Witches' Rede, the Charge of the Goddess, the Law of Return, and more. This book also teaches you how to do magical rituals and celebratory rites. Included are complete versions of rites for the major Wiccan holidays such as Imbolc and Ostara. Other rites – which include how to do the ritual and what to say – are rituals for the Full Moon, Paganing, Handfasting, and more.
Once you learn how to do the outline of a magical ritual, you need to be able to fill in the blanks. This includes the use of colors, candles, and herbs along with selecting the proper time and day and doing divinations. You'll learn how to use tea leaves, Tarot cards, and a crystal ball for this purpose.
In short, this book provides you with a complete understanding of all of the core elements that make up modern Paganism. Since this is non-sectarian, what you learn here can easily be applied to any tradition of Witchcraft. This is a book you'll come back to again and again.
