The Green Wiccan Year, by Silja. In today's environmentally conscious society, the Wiccan ideology, based on nature and the land, is more relevant than ever. Celebrate the Green Wiccan year with this illustrated guide and use its teachings to attain a greener, more eco-friendly lifestyle. Designed in the style of the Wiccan calendar and starting with the Witches' New Year, Samhain on October 31, this book covers all the main festivals, including Yule Lore, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, and finally Mabon, the harvest festival. For each key date, Silja explains the symbols and rituals associated with the festival, such as the magic circle, the pentagram, and the importance of the sun and moon. There are spells and meditations for each day as well as room to record your experiences and add notes and reminders. There are even green household tips and witchery wisdom for the kitchen and garden to help you connect with the environment, the core element upon which Wiccan beliefs are formed. *The perfect gift for those new to Wicca and those familar with pagan teachings. *The author's spells and wisdom come from a lifetime's experience of witchcraft. *Includes an introduction to Wicca and its philosphy. *Comes with 9 tabbed sections and pockets, hardcover, concealed wire-o-binding cloth quarter-binding, matching elastic closure band.
