An unparalleled exploration of magic in the Greco-Roman world What did magic mean to the people of ancient Greece and Rome? How did Greeks and Romans not only imagine what magic could do, but also use it to try to influence the world around them? In Drawing Down the Moon, Radcliffe Edmonds, one of the foremost experts on magic, religion, and the occult in the ancient world, provides the most comprehensive account of the varieties of phenomena labeled as magic in classical antiquity. Exploring why certain practices, images, and ideas were labeled as “magic” and set apart from “normal” kinds of practices, Edmonds gives insight into the shifting ideas of religion and the divine in the ancient past and in the later Western tradition. Using fresh approaches to the history of religions and the social contexts in which magic was exercised, Edmonds delves into the archaeological record and classical literary traditions to examine images of witches, ghosts, and demons as well as the fantastic powers of metamorphosis, erotic attraction, and reversals of nature, such as the famous trick of drawing down the moon. From prayer and divination to astrology and alchemy, Edmonds journeys through all manner of ancient magical rituals and paraphernalia—ancient tablets, spell books, bindings and curses, love charms and healing potions, and amulets and talismans. He considers the ways in which the Greco-Roman discourse of magic was formed amid the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean, including Egypt and the Near East. An investigation of the mystical and marvelous, Drawing Down the Moon offers an unparalleled record of the origins, nature, and functions of ancient magic.

As Ellie begins to pass to the other side she is rescued by an old hag, one fully immersed within the world of witchcraft. Sensing great power within the young woman, the hag barters with Samael, the spirit who arrives to ferry Ellie cross the plains of existence, and promises a greater amount of human life delivered by Ellie’s own hand if her life be spared. With one month to make good on the promise, Ellie is released to the guidance of the hag, before Samael returns to claim her soul. But, after finding of her escape, Hopkins and his company of paranormal hunters must track them down and deliver Ellie to London at the King’s request, or face a trial of fraud brought about by the most powerful people in England; Parliament. Can Hopkins find and kill the accused witch he failed to execute, or will Ellie master the art of paganism and witchcraft in time to save her life?

Written to fill an existing gap in the current available knowledge on trance, prophesy, deity-possession, and mediumship within the neo-Pagan and Wiccan communities, Lifting the Veil was developed from Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone's personal work and public workshops on trance-prophesy and ecstatic ritual over the last 20 years. The book covers the history and modern practice of trance as well as the methods of practice, including ecstatic ritual, drawing down the moon, sex magic, and working with the spirits of the dead. It also explores the Four Keys, which include the importance of understanding mythical cosmology and psychology, understanding the role of energy in trance, the nature of spirits and deity, and understanding what trance is and the techniques involved. Because trance-prophesy is a very subjective process, the book includes descriptions of the personal experiences of others and transcriptions from several independent sessions by modern seers and priestesses.

Expanding on core concepts found in Lisa's first book, Wicca for Beginners, the Natural Magic Kit is intended for new and more experienced Witches alike, inviting you to dive into a deeper understanding of three central aspects of spiritual and magical practice: the Elements, the Moon, and the Wheel of the Year. The "Old Religion" is all about revering Nature and tapping its infinite energies. Each book in the Natural Magic Kit contains spells, rituals, and other magical workings that will help you open up amazing pathways to a deeper connection with the Universe, and enhance your quality of life. Elemental Magic: A Guide to the Elements, Witchcraft, and Magic Elemental Magic offers a view of Wiccan-oriented ritual and magic through the lens of the Elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit. Lisa introduces you to each of the Elements: their properties, characteristics, magical associations, and effects on our lives. You'll learn how the Elements are invoked in ritual, as well as some techniques and magical practices for working with each Element individually. Of course, you'll also find spells, rituals and charms focused on each Element.

To that end, you'll find a detailed breakdown of each phase of the lunar cycle, spells for each phase, and magical recipes, techniques, and correspondences-all focused on making the most out of your connection to the Moon's magical energy. Wheel of the Year Magic: A Beginner's Guide to the Sabbats, with History, Celebration Ideas, and Dedicated Sabbat Spells Wheel of the Year Magic is rooted in Wiccan practices, but much of it is applicable to Pagans of all stripes, as well as anyone who is simply curious about the rich traditions surrounding these milestones of the Old Religion. Lisa offers detailed explorations of each Sabbat, including their significance within the context of the changing seasons, the part they play in the mythological cycle of the Goddess and the God, and the spiritual themes they ask us to reflect upon as we celebrate them. You'll learn about the historical origins of each holiday and the associated traditions and practices that have been handed down over the centuries from our European pagan ancestors. And of course, you'll also find tips and ideas for holding your own Sabbat celebrations, plus a few suggested spells and other magical workings that correspond with the themes and season of each holiday. Each book in the Natural Magic Kit is designed to deepen your appreciation for the creative, magical possibilities of living in rhythm with the energies of Nature.
