This charming little magic book holds the carefully guarded secrets that a wise woman of bygone days could have penned in her grimoire by candlelight. Herbal elixirs, powerful charms, amulets, balms for all folk who come to her seeking their heart's desire: enhanced health and healing, protection, love, marriage, fertility, wealth, youthfulness, beauty.
Quaint and mystic, this treasury of lore also describes twelve rituals to guide you through the mysteries of a full year of seasons. Begin with an ice-sparkling ceremony for the first day of the year and celebrate the winter solstice in a glorious burst of red and gold fire. Each ceremony grows out of the unchanging truths of the cycle of seasons and of the universe itself.
The posthumous publication of The Crones Book of Charms & Spells gives us one more chance to experience the melodic rhythm of Worth's prose and to feel the emotion stamped in her poetic inscriptions and incantations. Evoking images of the wise old woman in an isolated cottage, these carefully crafted potions, spells, charms, and amulets reflect the importance she places on taking delight in the process of one's work, as well as in the final product. The Crone's Book of Charms & Spells makes for entertaining reading, and with a little common sense and caution, will make a powerful addition to your own library. --Brian Patterson
