It guides us through the first steps in becoming a witch and explores many Wiccan traditions, initiations and magical practices. The Wiccan year the eight Sabbats along with many of its rituals and ceremonies are examined. Holland also provides the background of every facet of witchcraft, such as spells for every occasion, psychic protection, numerology, basic astrology and the lore of stones, metals, candles, animals and much more. High Priestess, Eileen Hollands helpful guide is rooted in practicality and intended as a working handbook, not a simple beginners guide.
