It is believed that the fastest growing religion in the world is Wicca or Witchcraft. The modern Wiccan movement, although very eclectic, can primarily be traced back to the traditions and religion of the ancient Celts.

Who were they? What did they believe? Who were the gods and goddesses they worshiped? What was their magic like? These and many other questions are answered in D. J. Conway's Celtic Magic.

There is an astounding amount of information in this book. You will learn how to prepare for doing magic and how the elements of air, earth, fire, and water are used in magic. Then you will learn how to cast a magic circle and see an example of an actual ritual.

You will also learn about the tools used in Celtic magic, including the altar, cauldron, pentacle, wand, staff, headband, armband, goblets, incense burner, knife, sword, robes, candles, herbs, and stones. How you use all of these tools is fully explained in the book.

Next come the rituals of the holidays. Revealed here are rituals for Ancestor Night (Halloween or Samhain), Imbolc (February 1), Beltane (Mayday) Lughnasadh (August 1), plus the solstices and equinoxes. Also included is a special ritual of self-initiation.

Of course, you'll also learn all about the Celts themselves. Included in this book is information on their history and their religion. There is a complete section listing some of their most important gods and goddesses, so you can better understand their religion and, if you wish, make it yours, too.

Naturally, this book is also filled with magic! You'll find instructions for herb magic, including how to use alder to bring air elementals to your area, and how apples can be used to get rid of warts. You'll learn how to use chamomile to enhance prosperity spells, and heather to promote love and protection. Many more secrets of herbs are given. Also in this book is information on cauldron magic, stone magic, and candle magic. You'll find scores of magical correspondences that can help enhance any magic you do.

If you are just getting into the Craft of the Wise, this book is a must. With the information here you will be able to fill out your knowledge of these ancient peoples. One thing you may find of particular interest in how the Celts and the Druids are related. This may be vital information for your future practices as a Wiccan.

Here is your chance to learn all the background and magic you need to become a Celtic magician or practice Celtic Witchcraft. Always clear, concise, and easy to read, you'll find that this book will be a resource you'll turn to again and again. As a compilation of folklore, history, and magic, this book is tops. That's why over 225,000 people have this book in their collections. Shouldn't you have it in yours, too?

When Lo Scarabeo asked me to create a Pagan-based casting kit, I was excited for a number of reasons. I love crystals. I love challenges. I loved the idea of creating a system that is complete in itself but also open to expansion and personalization. Although I wasn't sure what the kit and packaging would look like (sometimes a lot gets lost... read this article
