"Feasting from the Black Cauldron, Teachings from a Witch's Clan" by Amaranthus
Pendraig Publishing 2017
Amazon paperback price $19, Kindle $7

190 pages, 176 of text, with appendix of terminology & bibliography

This is an instructional book of a modern traditional coven's practices, generally adaptable for solitary use. Rituals are suggested without step by step dictation. Workable guidelines are given to develop personal experience without dictating expectations. I'm finding personal validation of my own skills & practice by reading it.

Chapters:
Witchery, re your own psychic talents
Blood of the Red Rose, uses for your own blood
Anointed Eyes, the witch's gaze
Ingen Serpentis, serpent & dragon symbolism for ritual use
Betwixt &'Between, places that help sustain magical working
Entranced in Manteia, re necromancy & trance
At the Crossroads of Night, rituals of crossroads, sage & sulfer
Terra Umbrae, underworld relationships with Elphame
Familiar Spirits, both animal & spirit
Covenant of the Witch, coven functions
Implements of the Art, broom, knife, cord, horn, cup, wands, stone, cauldron, bone, staff
To Sanctify the Tools, bonding with ritual tools
Feasting from the Black Cauldron, Celtic seasons of the Horned Lord & Dark Lady, astrological timing
Clan Formulary, incense &'oil recipes by purpose
Romances of Witchcraft, nature does things it's own way

Appendix &'bibliography

Huh, pulled it up on Amazon and read through the preview that was available which included a portion of the chapter on Witchery. Just from that, I'm interested; very validating, indeed. Thanks for the review, Zombee.
