The Wicca Handbook by Eileen Holland
Witch - what a powerful word it is. It attracts, it repels, it frightens, it fascinates. It offers hope to those who do not know where to turn. Modern witches - following the traditions of our earliest ancestors - are the shamans and healers of the twenty-first century. They practise the ancient art of sacred magic in the modern world. "The Wicca Handbook" is both a tutorial for new witches and an exceptionally well organized reference book for experienced practitioners. It guides us through the first steps in becoming a witch, explores many Wiccan traditions, initiations and magical practices. The Wiccan year - the eight Sabbats - along with many of its rituals and ceremonies are examined. You will learn about spell casting, sex magic and the techniques used to raise power. One of the most outstanding features of this book is Eileen Holland's extensive correspondence tables which cover virtually every facet of witchcraft: creativity, fertility, healing, love, magic, finances, psychic protection, astral projection, wisdom, heavenly bodies, animals, colours metals, rock and gemstones, the alphabet and numbers. With so much information, this is bound to become a dog-eared favourite in any witch's library.
