Celtic magic. These words conjure up images of Druids and mystical oak groves, daring Irish warriors, fairies, elves, and ancient deities who took an active part in the lives of the people who worshipped them. Practical and easy to understand, Celtic Magicoffers important features that distinguish it from other books written about the Celts:

—An in-depth discussion of Celtic culture and customs
—A complete listing of Celtic myths and deities
—Step-by-step instructions for spellwork, ritual, meditations, and
   divination to help you gain insight or make changes in your life

This friendly Celtic magic book is designed for both beginners and those who possess intermediate-level magical skills—and anyone who simply has a great interest in Celtic history, lore, and magic.
