Defences Against the Witches' Craft: Anti-Cursing Charms From English Folk Magick ... (New)
by Canard, John
Book ID: 9781905297184, 1905297181
Have you ever been cursed?
How would you know?
What would you do about it?
For centuries curses, hexes and the 'evil eye' were seen as part of daily life in rural England, resulting in a rich heritage of folklore & apotropaic magickal practices. Such charms as Witch Bottles, Witch Balls, Hagstones, Horseshoes and Brasses, Magick Squares, Abracadabra, Rowan and Red Thread, Flint Arrowheads and Pebble Charms were often made from readily available natural materials. They seemed simple, yet when constructed properly and empowered with secret rhymes and other mysterious enchantments, they were both very popular and considered to be very effective.
Here English Root Magician John Canard provides insights on how to find out if you have been cursed, detecting the perpetrator through dowsing, how to destroy magickal links, nail footprints, work with Church Grims and construct the Archangel Haniel's charm. He also discusses many other protective charms, growing protection in your garden, protecting the home against negativity, as well as enlisting both Angels and the sprits of the Dead for help!
There are quick fixes and methods to 'return to sender' and thoughts on when cursing might actually be justified. Drawing from his own extensive research of English folk magick, the grimoire traditions, witchcraft and cunning - as well as his own experiences as one of only a small number of practicing English Root Magicians today, the author shares many unique insights and rare lore never published before. Whether your interest is out of pure curiosity, or through a genuine need for neutralising or reflecting a curse, this throrougly practical book is a unique, balanced and invaluable study of one of the darker and rarely discussed areas of magick.

Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
