Doreen Valiente was a pioneer of modern Wicca and this book is one of our most often-recommended titles. Natural Magic exemplifies, in an easy style, the way a serious practitioner approaches spells and spell-working. Valiente was lifelong practitioner, initiated as a witch in 1953, a writer and folklore lover whose outlook was grounded in folk magic as well as Gardnerian Craft. Her warmth comes throgh the pages and her advice is always good. She also covers specific types of natural magic: herbs and flowers; amulets and talismans; four elements; card reading; numbers and colours; weather predicting; love relationships; dreams; birds and animals.
