PAGAN PORTALS: CANDLE MAGIC by Lucya Starza

From time to time I will be featuring reviews of books by other authors that are complimentary to traditional British Old Craft and the Khemetic Mysteries, and which I feel are recommended or essential reading material.  For example:

PAGAN PORTALS: CANDLE MAGIC by Lucya Starza

It would be easy to say this is a delightful little book for beginners – but Lucya Starza packs so much information into 25,000 words that it qualifies as a ‘must-have’ introduction to the fascinating subject of candle magic. I particularly like the down-to- earth, chatty approach that reads like a casual conversation around the kitchen table – by candle light, of course. Candle magic is one of the simplest, yet one of the oldest, most powerful forms of spell-casting and an essential addition to any witch’s toolbox of tricks – so if you want to discover more about the glittering, shimmering, flickering, dancing world of candle magic then this is the book for you.

Since its publication I’ve also added it to the list of recommended reading in the Coven of the Scales Arcanum course, and often refer to it in my own books as the best treatment of the subject since the late Michael Howard’s Practical Candle Magic, which is now out of print. Lucya Starza often hosts candle magic sessions in London and if you want to find out more about this fascinating aspect of witchcraft go to her Bad Witch blog … see cover picture above.
