The ancient world is a magical place. From the ziggurats of Sumeria to the temples of Crete and the pyramids of Egypt, the ancients call to us. Magic never dies, but only slumbers, awaiting discovery by those who would once again revel in its beauty and respect its power.
The revised and updated second edition of Ancient Spellcraft is a practical book of spells and charms derived from ancient Pagan cultures including the Babylonians, Canaanites, Celts, Egyptians, Etruscans, Greeks, Hittites, Minoans, Phoenicians, and Sumerians. These ancient civilizations provide a wealth of magical workings—spells, charms, and divinations—that are simple and practical for modern use.
These spells speak to the many human needs and desires of protection, prosperity, romance, fertility, healing, and divination. Each spell is described in detail, complete with step-by-step instructions as well as background information about the gods and goddesses involved, encouraging the reader to develop a relationship with these ancient deities who are still very much alive in our world today. This collection of spells, based in the ancient world but fully relevant for the 21st century, is a valuable addition to modern Pagan spiritual practice.
