Wicca for the Beginner First it's important to know that there is no one and only Book of Shadows. This concept is a fictional plot device to explain why magyc is not effective without THE Book of Shadows. The idea is that if you just have the right book all your magyc will be effective. This usually sets up a dynamic between the characters where each tries to possess THE book. Actually, the name simply refers to any book or digital folder that contains a witch's personal spells, potions, references and records. The truth is that any given magycal rite or spell is effective only if it's effective for you.

Introduction to Spell Casting Start by reading Is Magic Real if you haven’t already. You need to come away with at least the tentative hope that, in fact, witchcraft is real. You need to suspend your disbelief long enough to give yourself a fair chance. As far as I know, anyone can do witchcraft, with the exception of those who are mentally incompetent, intoxicated or those too young or too old to focus their will effectively. A Picture of the Fairy Kingdom This is a picture of the Fairy Kingdom. Faeries, the fae, elementals – so many different names for our fairy friends! "Hand in hand, with fairy grace,Will we sing, and bless this place." I want to share with you a picture of the Fairy Kingdom, that is, some of the Fairies and Elementals in this very special, mystical world - at least the ones we know about! These wonderful beings are in abundance in our everyday lives, but we usually take no notice of them, or worse yet, we ignore them! With our busy and technological lives, this aspect of living in harmony with nature and the wonderful beings that inhabit it, is rapidly fading away.

To aid clients in selecting a type of wood that is right for them, we include here brief descriptions of the magical properties of selected types of wood.
Fellowship of Wandmakers On this page are listed some of the other wandmakers I have found on the web. Each wand maker's work is very different.

Earth Mysteries: Stonehenge and the Druids, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire - Earth Mysteries Stonehenge and the Druids, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire After centuries of neglect in the wake of first Roman and then Christian suppression, the Druids were rediscovered during the Renaissance when the revival of interest in ancient Greek and Latin writers brought attention to the works of Pliny, Tacitus, and Julius Caesar and their descriptions of the Celtic world. First in France in the sixteenth century, and then in England, the ancient Celts (or Gauls as they were known in France) and Druids were claimed as historical ancestors. By the seventeenth century, a new romantic image of Druids began to emerge in French and English literature. In England as early as 1624 the Celtic warrior queen Boudicca is credited by Edmond Bolton with building Stonehenge as her monument.

This form of hoodoo spell casting is employed when you want to set up a powerful sweetening spell in a small place and keep it working for as long as you wish.
