Magic For Beginners
by Richard Webster
Published by Llewellyn Worldwide
The author of this book says "Candle Magic can be as simple or
involved as you wish." And although he calls this a beginner's
guide, it's not. Beginners will most certainly understand its clear
style and easy tone, but it's jammed with the most incredible volume of
information. Far more than most "beginner" guides this
reviewer has read.
From Element and Sign tables
from the past to the future, to magical alphabets, candle rituals for all
end, divinations, how to make your own candles and everything in between,
this book fills the practitioner with a sense of having learned much.
Webster talks about timing,
color, how to prepare and what to include. His rituals flow and are simple
to absorb and work with. He includes a section on how to achieve
goals, which in my mind was a thoughtful inclusion. Many forget that
we can spell to help us see our path to our goals clearly. We forget
to include this in our rituals.
"People have always
been fascinated with fire, and it still plays a major role in ceremonies
of all sorts. There is comforting, uplifting and hypnotic about a
flickering, dancing flame, which makes it easy to see how candles came to
be used for magic." Webster

Make your wishes come true

candle magic. It's entertaining beat and move-forward attitude will help
the new practitioner to stay focused and in control. Bringing in
color, fragrance, numerology, Webster explains the impact of these and
other factors on spells and ritual.
