Buy Now with Best Price
The Appalachian Mountain range is more than 2,400 miles long, stretching from Quebec to Alabama. Now, the rich folklore of southern Appalachia, with all of its unique magicks, is revealed in Mountain Magick (previously titled In a Graveyard at Midnight) by Edain McCoy. As a descendent of the famous feuding McCoy family (of the Kentucky-based Hatfield-McCoy rivalry), she is the ideal person to share the folk wisdom of these people.
The Appalachian folk used omens, portents, curses, cures, and protections. Mountain Magick focuses on some of these magickal techniques, including ones for family and home, romance and children, health and healing. In this book you will learn the traditional Appalachian way to:
- Do remote healings
- Cast spells for love and romance
- Cure warts with beans and a potato
- Break a curse
- End a headache with a cool vinegar compress
- Wash away dandruff with an after-shampoo rinse of hops and sage
- Stir up a windstorm by whistling
- Use an old shoe to increase your good fortune
In today's magickal community, Anglo-Celtic religions seem to be the most popular. Even if you are following a British or Irish tradition, you should not overlook the rich folk magick as revealed in Mountain Magick. Many of the people (and their traditions) in this area come from the Scottish and English immigrants who settled there as long ago as the mid-1700s. That is why you will find information on how to integrate the Appalachian folkways with your magickal lifestyle.
The folk wisdom of the Appalachian people described in Mountain Magick is sure to intrigue you with its power and usability. Get your copy today.
