I stumbled across this book while looking for some new pictures to post of my beloved satyr god. It wasn't a purchase I regret.
The story is absolutely beautiful even if there are minor contradictions to the actual mythology. It tells the story of Pan's love for Iphigenia.
Told through Pan's eyes, the reader is shown how many of the most notable events in the Great God's life came to happen, which will give lovers and followers of our carefree god, a new look at him and a much deeper understanding about who he is.
The story nearly broke my heart, but it is a story I will read over and over again.
I would recommend this book to any lover of Mythology, any follower of Pan, and any lover of true love.
I give this book 5 of 5 pentacles
This is the perfect starter deck for young witches! Not only are the cards beautifully illustrated, their meanings are right on the card, which saves beginners the hassle of thumbing through a book to figure out what each card means. This deck is helping my daughter learn her craft a lot easier than I did lol
Another great purchase. These are larger than I expected, almost too big really. Definitely worth the price.
These stones are simply stunning! While they are a lot smaller than I'd hoped they'd be (They're roughly the size of stone beads, minus the threading holes), they are absolutely perfect. There's no regrets with this purchase.
I bought this book on the recommendation of a trusted friend who's a fellow Pagan. While I don't normally read studies since I find them far too similar to school work, this one was slightly different. This one was about a topic I wanted to know about. This book is about the Witch Trials that took place in England in 1600's, more specifically the case of the Device family of Malking Tower in the Pendle Forest.
I will begin this review by saying that while, again, I'm not a fan of studies, this book has so many interesting things in it, that even with it being a history lesson, it was still intriguing. I particularly liked the remakes of the spells the Cunning Folk used in the 1600's. I found it fascinating to see how much spell casting has changed through centuries and yet still even though we cast differently today, they are still very similar to each other in so many ways.
The study itself is heart wrenching. Witch against Witch, accused against enemy, worst of all; young children forced to testify against their families; and forced to live with the knowledge that their statements helped get them killed. It didn't help that the Assizes were a madhouse and hardly anyone was able hear what they were accused of.
I also liked how snippets of the actual propaganda pamphlets were integrated into this book along with actual statements, and photographs of re-enacted spells. It gives the reader a better understanding of how things were done or made to seem.
I found a single error in this work on page 145, other than that the editing was flawless.
This book would be an asset to any witch that enjoys reading up on our histories even if they aren't from England, after all, we are all brothers and sisters in the craft.
I would also suggest this book to anyone curious to understand why we witches stand so united now and why we always remember the Burning Times.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws.
Baba Yaga is a well-known scare tactic for many Pagan parents. What better way to get them to behave than to threaten them with a demon who eats children?
Seriously though, this book teaches the children the importance of friendships, compassion, and Poppets.
Poppets are an integral part of many Pagan paths, but there's more stigma around them than around any other aspect of our world. People just naturally assume Poppets are only evil things. This book kills that assumption with some amazingly retold lore.
This is probably my favorite reference book. Unlike other books on Greek Mythology, there is no actual lore in them.
This book is exactly what it claims to be, an encyclopedia. It lists every known (and some unknown to most) Greek God in a section of up to a page or two in length and lists all their information, parents, feats, abilities, who worshiped them, where they were worshiped, favorites of everything, etc.
This book is my go to when I cast and when I need to call on a specific God; it hasn't failed me yet.
This is a great book if your familiar is a cat. There's all kinds of fun spells and rituals that let your cat help with in small ways even if it's just by sitting at one of the quarters.
There's also spells to call your familiar to you if you don't have one, and a ceremony for a familiar's death.
This is definitely a favored one of mine.
The Dream Book: Dream Spells, Nighttime Potions and Rituals, and Other Magical Sleep Formulas by Gillian Kemp
This is a must have for anyone that Dream Walks or delves into the Spirit World. This book has saved my ass more times than I can count.
Not only does it have everything mentioned, it also has a small dream dictionary that will gives you small hints as to what the things you dream about mean, of course they're just hints, they leave the actual solving of those dreams to you.
