Italian Witchcraft (previously titled Ways of the Strega) by Raven Grimassi is really an achievement. This outstanding  book about Stregheria examines the history of the tradition, showing its antiquity through a variety of sources. It also has the complete myth of Aradia and the teachings of the Holy Strega. Finally, it contains a workbook with all of the rituals for the holidays as well as many of the magical techniques. In short, it is a complete Book of Shadows! And most importantly, you can use it to make the changes you need in your life.
In the chapter titled "The Art of Casting Spells," the magical methods of the Strega are revealed. Raven writes that "The art of spell casting incorporates many different aspects. Most spells include the use of various types of candles, herbs, charms, oils and so on. Also common to most spells is the verse or incantation." He then goes on to reveal all of the methods, including different types of verses to use and herbs for different magical purposes. You'll learn that you should use white candles for rituals of protection, pink ones for friendship and green ones for success. You'll also learn the Protective Pentagram Spell, the Spell of the Witches' Pentagram, the Spell of St. Anthony (to win or reclaim a lover), and much more.
I think you'll find that this will be one of the most valuable books you can have. Whether you are looking for historical information or practical techniques, this book will satisfy you. Always interesting and intriguing, you'll find yourself studying the histories, honoring the myths and practicing the magick.
The path of the Strega may be the path that leads you to greater success and happiness. You owe it to yourself to find out.




Grave minding and grave decorating traditions run hand in hand with the season of Samhain, and perhaps nowhere is this as apparent as in Central and South America during Dias de los Muertos. However, elements of this practice are easily incorporated into modern Pagan traditions and offer a subtle yet powerful method of honoring the dead. It is... read this article
