Witches' Almanac, Issue 39
Modeled after the Old Farmers’ Almanac, The Witches' Almanac includes information related to the annual Moon Calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, much of the content is both current and timeless - not specific to the date range of each issue. The theme of Issue 39 (Spring 2020 – Spring 2021) is Stones – the Foundation of Earth. Also included are articles on: Celestial Powers: Lightning Gods, Bolts from the Blue; Gargoyles; How to work with the Spirits of the Land; The Art of Embodying Godforms in Ritual; Holey Stones; Borges Beasts and much more. Founded in 1971 by Elizabeth Pepper, The Witches’ Almanac is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to general reads as well as hard-core Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology and culture, but at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for the mystic enthusiast.
