One of the most attractive qualities about Moura's writing is that she makes no extravagent claims of ancient lineage and she doesn't attempt to distort history to fit her version of the Craft; many Llewellyn books in the past have been rendered nearly useless by this tendency. The material is offered as neutrally as can be, and therefore it is easily adaptable for an individual's tastes and beliefs.
Is it just me, or is the overall quality of pagan books going up recently? Kudos to Llewellyn for finally putting out a quality witchcraft reference!
It includes all of the standard holiday and ritual information and it is presented in a precise, non-fluff way. I particularly like the fact there are so many tables, planetary guides, sigils, runes etc. The type of info you can't seem to find anywhere else is all compiled neatly here with room to add on at the end of every chapter. She also added several tea recipes, I found to be rather charming.
What this book isn't is a book of spells, if you are looking for one of those, I suggest you look elsewhere.
It is extremely thorough, well written as a ritual and spell book, and NOT a teaching book at all. If you are looking for a teaching book, get "Green Witchcraft III." This is the compilation of all the rituals and magical work from her earlier books, all written out and put into one manual. They are easy to find, easy to follow, flow together very well, and she includes a ton of extra information so it is right at your fingertips. No more hunting around and thinking "Where did I read that??"
Again, to each his own, but I think this is a wonderful grimoire.
It starts with deity basics, explaining what green witchcraft is and its ethics (Ann Moura being a green witch along with much of her family for many generations) along with who (in a very general way) the Goddess and God are. She mostly leaves this open for slight interpretation since many different types of point of view of the subject exist along with names as she slightly goes into by explaining what she has been brought up to believe in her family. She also expresses the main (not necessarily most popular) types of green witchcraft. Then she goes into the Wheel of the Year, quite extensively.
A large amount is devoted to what the book claims to be, the BOS, explaining rituals, chants, and blessings done during the Sabbats (one of the longest and most extensive I've seen) and during spells, tools and how to make them, important rituals such as Drawing Down the Moon and consecrations, a large chapter for just meditation, a chapter of just things needed to make a spell and ritual work and what goes into making them (there are nineteen sections of this chapter mind you).
Only now FINALLY do we get to the spells chapter, which was mostly spells for basic living which I personally was happy with, having grown tired of the usual making your neighbor fall in love with you spells. Afterwards is a section on crafts which are used often in many books and spells. Next comes the chapter on most things herbs are used for like teas and baths. Then a chapter on all things divination associated such as how to read tea leafs and extended explanations of each and every tarot card. And finally what I thought to be most surprising was she actually put in a section on palm reading.
All and all, this book is wonderful and has literally everything you will ever need. I highly recommend it for all witches, green or gray, beginners or advanced. It's a marvelous read.
and more.There are outlines with creative ideas and recipes for
sabbats.There are bath recipes,a glossary of tough terms,planetary symbols,incense & herb correspondences,the Pagan
versions of Yule carols,the properties of different feathers and totems,too much to list.I reccommend this book to ALL witches.
