Sheds light on Wiccan beliefs and practices--deities, priests, holidays, rituals, and rules--that are often unknown and frequently misunderstood by non-Pagans and the uninitiated, revealing what it truly means to be witch. Original.
EDIT: Updates for 2017! Added more spells, illustrations and a glossary. I compiled this Book of Shadows from a collection of spells I have been using since I started down my path. This book contains over 100 spells, a list of runes, how they can be used in spell casting and even crafting your own spells. I've collected these spells from several different sources, mostly from witches I have met in my travels and covens I have been a part of. I've tweaked a few of these spells to fit my needs from time to time and you can do the same as the words aren't what give the spells power, your energy is what really matters, so feel free to do the same and change what you want to suit your own needs. The craft of Magic is a constant fluctuating living thing and our ancestors have borrowed, changed, and made from scratch what we practice today. I hope this book helps you grow as a person and a spellcrafter. -Brittany Nightshade -Brittany Nightshade
