Traditional Witchcraft

Following on from

We present to you here The Art – A Grimoire of Traditional Witchcraft


“I Call the serpent of the land,
Awake, arise from your stead,
By dragons red and white,
By crow, by toad, by leaping hare,
Awake in me O serpent’s breath!”

Witchcraft and magic have been with humanity from our beginning.  Beyond all that we as a species are, these have remained because they work.  And because they work, Traditional Witchcraft remains vital today.

This is the third in the Geassa series of books, a compendium of techniques rooted in Traditional Witchcraft that combine ancient pagan, Hermetic and cunning folk teachings into a powerful system of practical magic.  Detailed rituals, spells, and formulae are presented including:

  • Summoning the Serpent’s Breath in preparation for ritual.
  • House spirits & protective magic.
  • A detailed list of planetary and zodiacal sigils, seals and the spirits involved.
  • Traditional talismans & amulets for a variety of uses.
  • Mirror magic – including mirrors of revealing, enchanting & repelling.
  • Scrying & Crystal Gazing.
  • The Art of Fascination & the Glamour.
  • Candle & Cord magic in Traditional Witchcraft.
  • Necromancy – the art of summoning the dead.
  • Prosperity magic.
  • Seasonal and Full Moon Rituals.
  • A listing of different incantations, Words of Power and much more.

Fully documented, including over ninety illustrations, this book gives in depth instruction into the techniques of practical Traditional Witchcraft.
