9781402700835: The Goodly Spellbook: Olde Spells For Modern Problems

Here is the thoroughly comprehensive, absolutely definitive guide to spells--the basic handbook for anyone looking to practice some hands-on magic. Delightfully well written and practical, filled with atmospheric illustrations and diagrams throughout, it encompasses all the principles and philosophy of spell casting, and gives recipes for charms to solve common contemporary problems. This offers what witchcraft and Wicca books don't: an in-depth understanding of what's behind the spells and why they work. It's amazing how much magic is in here: Geomancy, Elemental Scrying, Tree Divination, Mystic Dance and Drumming, Kitchen Witchery, and lots more. From healing, protection, and attraction spells to spells for discernment, repulsion, and concealing, not a topic goes uncovered.

About the Author:

Lady Passion (Dixie Deerman), RN, NLC, HPS, is a seer, counselor, and registered nurse with more than three decades' experience as a clairvoyant psychic reader, divination expert, and healer for clients from every continent and every walk of life.  Steve Rasmussen (*Diuvei) is High Priest of Coven Oldenwilde. His magical specialties are astrology, music, and wordcraft—each of which he has also plied in the mundane world as a professional astrologer, computer musicologist, and journalist for an alt-weekly newspaper.

From Publishers Weekly:

The authors, Gardernian witches and co-founders of Coven Oldenwilde, offer hundreds of spell recipes for healing, protection, discernment, concealment, repulsion of evil and attraction of good (not just romance, but also prosperity, fertility and wisdom). Before they get to the spells, however, they lay a solid foundation for practice with an introductory essay on the history of spellcraft, followed by short sections on practical matters like gathering ingredients, creating a magical atmosphere and living ethically. They also delve into specific magical techniques such as geomancy, chanting and kitchen witchery. Beginners will appreciate hands-on chapters like "How to Know You're Doing Spells Properly"-successful spells, the authors say, often make the caster's ears ring and spark an "inner tingling." The spells are presented in a straightforward manner with specifics on the best times to cast them, the necessary ingredients and the right deity to invoke. Some spells are quotidian, even prosaic-such as a compress to heal computer eyestrain-while others are momentous and difficult, like a spell to prevent evil people from entering a home or workspace. Well-organized and comprehensively indexed, this reference book will be useful for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
