Marion Weinstein was one of the first witches to release a Book of Shadows to the public. Here is the revised and updated version of Earth Magic, the author's personal book of magical practice, made available for today's Witches. Based on an indepth study of the many facets of Witchcraft, Earth Magic presents the religion as positive and life-affirming.

The book is filled with how-to's of a practical nature, as is traditional in Witchcraft. It is intended to be a springboard, to unlock the reader's psychic Wiccan abilities and guide them into the creation of their own unique and personal work. Every technique is explained in detail, in keeping with Weinstein's proviso that one should never attempt to work any magic unless one understands it fully. The goal is to encourage true Witchcraft expertise and creativity.

The information from the original edition is still available, as well as a treasure trove of new material, some of which has never been seen before. In this thoroughly revised edition, you will learn:
-- How to set up psychic protection.
-- How to work string and cord magic.
-- Working with the phases of the Moon.
-- Forming and working with your own coven.
-- Visualization in a Witch's mode.
-- Choices of Deity alignments from a wide realm of cultures.
-- Not one, but two methods of Manifestation: Creation Manifestation and Affinity Manifestation.
-- Creating rituals, creating Words of Power, composing one's own spells, use of talismans, candles, pendulums, Witch's Bottles, scrying, oracles, and much more.
