Sehr viele nützliche und interessante Infos! Leider ist das Englisch etwas langatmig zu lesen, man muss oft Pausen machen. Ich finde es etwas anstrengend. Ist man aber erst mal drin, ist das Buch ein echter Gewinn!
I only bought this book recently and I would consider it one of the best books on Paganism/Witchcraft I have come across. It is very clearly structured and informative, like a little dictionnary for Witches, where you can look up any information you need to for spells or rituals. It just has all the basics in it, in exhaustive formats and shorter versions, whatever you are looking for. What I particularly liked about it are the detailed charts about correspondences such as planetary influences, days, time, planets, moon phases, colours, herbs, oils, tools etc. It enables you to create spells easily and as complex as you want. I was looking for soke sort of dictionnary of correspondences and Ann Moura has everything in her beautiful book of shadows! I also like the way she introduces and organizes the book: she succeeds very well to establish a personal relationship with the reader and allows us to make the book our "own" by leaving blank pages for comments and spaces to put in your Craft name etc. I like the way she expresses herself, wanting to pass on the Craft that she was blessed to be passed on by her ancestors. This is another thing that I like a lot: The book is clearly a mixture of the ancient Craft and modern influences: so it is not a Wiccan- rule-bound treatise, nor a modern wishy washy book. It adjusts perfectly what has been passed on since generations to what we are and need today without destroying its core messages and "prayers", the heart of ancient wisdom.
