The Goodly Spellbook: Olde Spells for Modern Problems
Availability: NEW 2ND EDITION in bookstores & online Sept. 2, 2014.
The Goodly Spellbook: Olde Spells for Modern Problems reveals never-before-published material about The Secret Language of Witches, Barbarous Words of Power, Musical Ciphers, and the magical methods politicians and advertisers employ to manipulate the masses.
"We've revealed long-suppressed information," explains Lady Passion. "Witches and God/desses are real, and everyone can learn how to practice magic daily to help themselves thrive. In fact, most people already do whenever they knock on wood or hang a charm on their car mirror."
Here is the thoroughly comprehensive, absolutely definitive guide to spells — the basic handbook for anyone looking to practice some hands-on magic. Delightfully well-written and practical, filled with atmospheric illustrations and diagrams throughout, it encompasses all the principles and philosophy of spell casting, and gives recipes for charms to solve common contemporary problems. This offers what most Witchcraft and Wicca books don’t: an in-depth understanding of what’s behind the spells and why they work. It’s amazing how much magic is in here: Geomancy, Elemental Scrying, Tree Divination, Mystic Dance and Drumming, Kitchen Witchery, and lots more. From healing, protection, and attraction spells to spells for discernment, repulsion, and concealing, not a topic goes uncovered.
"The Goodly Spellbook is a well-written, beautifully presented collection of old and new magic, utilizing time-tested spells of all kinds. The authors have accumulated a wonderful and useful assemblage with everything needed for magical success. As is stated in the Introduction, 'This book does more than merely reproduce recipes ...' Indeed it does! It gives the background to spellwork; it details such tools as magical writing, music, chant, dance and song; and it even speaks of the importance of ethics in magic and spellcraft. This is a worthwhile book for every Witch, magician, and sorcerer's apprentice."
-- Raymond Buckland (Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft, The Witch Book)
"Offering a wide variety of enchanting spells complete with origins and magical theory, The Goodly Spellbook is an impressive, comprehensive work that is surely destined to become a classic. As an occultist and long-time priestess of the Old Religion, I strongly recommend this fine volume to all magical practitioners and anyone interested in the Witches' craft."
-- Gerina Dunwich (Wicca Craft, Dunwich's Guide to Gemstone Sorcery)
"The Goodly Spellbook is a delightful and refreshing blend of sound practical advice coupled with traditional folk magic practices. Every magical library should contain a copy of this book, which preserves ancient tradition while making it pertinent to modern times."
-- Raven Grimassi (Italian Witchcraft, The Wiccan Mysteries)
"The Goodly Spellbook powerfully expresses the beauty, joy and potency of spellcraft. Lady Passion and *Diuvei have lovingly crafted an elegant, eclectic and wide-ranging collection of traditional and modern spells. With information for novice and adept alike, The Goodly Spellbook is a valuable addition to any magical library."
