Traditional Witchcraft for the Seashore

Author: Melusine Draco

Publisher: Moon Books - John Hunt Publishing

Category: Traditional Witchcraft   Level: Beginner


It was Andy Lloyd Book Reviews that first put the Traditional Witchcraft series into its proper perspective: “The ‘Traditional Witchcraft’ series provides varied information about what it means to be a practising witch in modern times. In places, it feels like a guide, or self-help book. But there is much more to it than that. What strikes me is the amount of science running through the book. To understand nature is to live as a part of nature, and ultimately to become one with its changing patterns and cycles, to synchronise one’s own psychic or magical energy with natural tidal forces and the elements. So a witch, like no other religious practitioner that I’m aware of, must study her environment carefully, and attune her life to it … The learning is multi-disciplinary, and feels almost as if one was studying a textbook written by a poet … it has that sense of quiet wonder about it, supported by education, knowledge and, above all, wisdom.”
In fact, the whole series was structured along the lines of a distance learning course, so that any would-be traditional witch had a step by step guide to follow. Traditional Witchcraft for Urban Living (originally published as Mean Streets Witchcraft) is the first in the series and as the title suggests, aimed at the majority of pagans who live in an urban environment rather than insisting that a witch must live in the country before they can learn about traditional British Old Craft. The second step is revealed in Traditional Witchcraft for the Seashore that teaches us how to understand and work with those natural tides within our own environment, even if we don’t live by the sea. Step three, Traditional Witchcraft for Fields and Hedgerows, covers what most of us would think of in terms of traditional Craft, and brings us back into the comfort zone where we feel safe and secure – before step four casts us back out into the more hostile world of Traditional Witchcraft for the Woods and Forests: the magical energies differing quite considerably between these four environments.

TRADITIONAL WITCHCRAFT FOR URBAN LIVING and TRADITIONAL WITCHCRAFT FOR THE SEASHORE, Mélusine Draco (Moon Books/John Hunt Publishing Ltd www.moon-books.net £9.99/US 16.95 each. l43pp and 149pp) . The author of these books was an initiate of the late Bob Clay-Egerton’s traditional Coven of the Scales and has been a practising occultist, magical teacher and writer on esoteric subjects for over twenty years. These two books are the first in a series on modern traditional witchcraft for absolute beginners. Traditional Witchcraft for Urban Living, as the title suggests, is a guide to being a witch in a town or city environment while still connecting with the natural world, elemental forces and the land. The second book is for those who live near or often visit the coast and wish to commune with the sea and its energies. You will not find any invocations to Cemnunos and Ceridwen or the ‘Wiccan Rede’ here. Also, although the books are written in a pagan context, all the charms used are Christianised ones as found in historical witchcraft and folk magic. Both books are written in a down-to-earth style with a commonsensical approach firmly rooted in the folk traditions and seasonal lore of the British Isles. They are very much like the basic beginner’s primers written by Marian Green of Quest magazine and are recommended.

The ‘Traditional Witchcraft’ series provides varied information about what it means to be a practising witch in modern times. In places, it feels like a guide, or self-help book. But there is much more to it than that. What strikes me is the amount of science running through the book. To understand nature is to live as a part of nature, and ultimately to become one with its changing patterns and cycles, to synchronise one’s own psychic or magical energy with natural tidal forces and the elements. So a witch, like no other religious practitioner that I’m aware of, must study her environment carefully, and attune her life to it. For a witch devoted to the sea and seashore, that involves learning much about the tides, weather, flora and fauna of the coastline, lunar cycles, as well as the folklore and myths of the sea ...The learning is multi-disciplinary, and feels almost as if one was studying a textbook written by a poet ... But it has that sense of quiet wonder about it, supported by education, knowledge and, above all, wisdom.
Andy Lloyd Book Reviews

Few are fortunate to live near enough to the sea to use the shoreline as a regular magical working area. And yet for the natural witch, born and bred by the sea, the beach and rocky shore are equally as magical as the inland woods and hills of more traditional approaches to witchcraft. The author takes us on a magical journey along the seashore and reveals how to work with the natural oceanic tides and energies. Learn how to harness the powers of the Deep, and collect flotsam and jetsam for use as ritual tools.

Author's Notes: Melusine Draco originally trained in the magical arts of traditional British Old Craft with Bob and Meriem Clay-Egerton and is the author of numerous popular books on magic and traditional British Old Craft..
