Walking the Tides

Seasonal Magical Rhythms and Lore

Nigel G. Pearson

First published as ‘Walking the Tides – Seasonal Rhythms and Traditional Lore’, this new edition of Nigel G. Pearson’s popular book is presented with revised text and is complimented with photography from the author. Included is a new introduction for this edition alongside the original introduction.

Behind the seasonal calendar celebrated by most modern pagans is an ebb and flow of natural energies that is seldom mentioned and whose meaning is very little understood. Those that take their practice from a direct experience of the Land and its natural rhythms and tides have always understood and worked with these energies, which gives them a direct connection to the reality behind the modern festivals.

This book aims to give the reader an insight into the great rhythmic tides and flows of energy that animate the Land throughout the year and the natural happenings that occur along the way, thereby giving their practice a validity that it may currently lack.

Walking the Tides describes holy days, celebrations, saints’ days, animals, birds, herbs, trees, weather and starlore that are featured in the natural calendar of the British Isles, and the uses to which many of these things are put in traditional practice.

Divided into four sections describing the Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn Tides (and monthly within these), the author gives the reader a feeling of connection to what is actually going on around them in the natural world, at any given point in the year……..

The Gnome Grimoire

The Gnome Manuscript – Part Two:
Magical Workings with Nature Spirits

Wilmar Taal

The Gnome Manuscript by J.H.W. Eldermans has been a mystery for many years. The drawings and sketches of pentacles, talismans and amulets, ritual garments and tools and methods of magic, all graced by his graceful handwriting, have been a magnet to students of the occult, but the many texts in Dutch made it difficult to understand these writings. Wilmar Taal has taken on the task of categorizing, translating and commenting on this manuscript and the second instalment of The Gnome Manuscript will take you into the world of working magic with the little people…

Being the largest part of the trilogy, The Gnome Grimoire will not only bring you the well known Solomonic magic concerning gnomes, but also open the doors to the grey circuit, the circles of unknown witches and magisters who share their knowledge of gnome magic, and for the first time translated into English. It will enable the practitioner to prepare foods that gnomes are attracted to, to build contraptions that enables you to see gnomes roaming free in the fields or to gain the aid of a gnome during the search for hidden treasure. The Gnome Grimoire is your go-to book concerning the magic with gnomes, at least Dutch gnomes………
