A treasury of pagan beliefs and herbal lore, providing detailed information on how to cultivate, gather, and store herbs, prepare remedies and charms, and interpret weather signs.

Review:

" The author draws upon the rich symbolism of Celtic mythology to provide an introduction to a holistic feminine philosophy steeped in the Druidic past. Nahmad draws on herbal and astrological lore from the Celtic pagan tradition of the British Isles; she asserts that the wisewoman's traditions she describes have been passed down from woman to woman for many generations. She herself was made aware of this knowledge by her maternal grandmother. Chapters are organized around signs of the zodiac and convey a mixture of esoteric information and practical wisdom. Specific invocations are given as part of each chapter, but it is cautioned that these should not be rigidly applied. Although this astrological guide provides an interesting look at an alternative spiritual path, it may have limited appeal. Libraries with large collections on pagan religion and women's studies will want to add this book, but it is not an essential purchase for others." ?
