Overview

Tap into the mythic power of the Celtic goddesses, gods, heroes, and heroines to aid your spiritual quests and magickal goals.

Human and divine energies complement each other; when joined, they become a potent catalyst for true magick and change. Celtic Myth & Magick describes the energies of over 300 cross-referenced Celtic deities and heroic figures so you can quickly determine which one can best help you in attaining specific goals through magick—such as greater prosperity (Cernunnos), glowing health (Airmid), or a soul partner (Aengus MacOg).

This guidebook explains how to use creative Pagan ritual and pathworking to align yourself with the energy of these powerful archetypes. Undertake three magickal quests to the inner plane—where you’ll join forces with Cuchulain, Queen Maeve, and Merlin the Magician to bring their energies directly into your life. This inspiring, well-researched book is written especially for solitary Pagans who seek to expand the boundaries of their practice to form working partnerships with the divine.

Meet the Author

Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983. Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism. Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition. Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.

An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.

This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree. In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.

Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.

Read an Excerpt

Have you ever noticed how some of the most useful things in the world are also the most common? You can get hammers and screwdrivers at convenience stores, yet they make taking care of your home easier and more efficient. You would think that such valuable devices would become expensive and rare, but just the opposite is true.

The same is true for dictionaries. They have become inexpensive and you can even get them in formats that are small enough to keep in a purse or pocket.

Perhaps we should have called Edain McCoy's Celtic Myth & Magick a dictionary. After all, it does list over 700 Celtic deities, heroes, and heroines in alphabetical order, sharing their myths, correspondences, and uses in magick. This is of incredible value to anyone using the Celtic pantheon of deities in his or her spiritual system.

Or perhaps we should have called it a complete guide. Besides the dictionary, it includes an introduction to Celtic tradition and lore, information about rituals, rites, festivals, ceremonies, and spells you can do. You'll also learn Celtic pathworking; invocation and evocation; and information on almost fifty popular Pagan traditions that draw upon the Celts as a source. The book also shares data on resources for supplies and even includes Celtic music and Celtic dress.

But there is no reason for Edain to brag in the title. The book speaks for itself. And what it says is that it is simply the most complete book on Celtic traditions ever published. For even more details you can check out the large bibliography of sources.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Paganism, Witchcraft, or the ancient Celts. If you really want to learn about the ancient Celts and how you can put their traditions, knowledge, and wisdom to use in your spiritual practices, get this book.

    Celtic Students Should Be Required To Read This Book

    As a HPS of a Celtic Coven, I require my students to spend time with my copy of this book or to purchase it on their own. Great book with a lot of wonderful stories.

    A Wonder Filled Doorway to all Pagan Paths

    This is one of the first books I read when I decided to look into other forms of religion. I finally landed on Druidism and this book helped me get there. It is a wonderful guide by an acclaimed writer. I thought the best touches was the lists of the religions and dictionary of the Gods\Goddesses and how it tried to cover all Paths, not just one in general. Over all, a very good book!

    not what I thought it would be

    This book was good at the begenning and the end but the middle was only astral projection type stuff and there was very little mytrh at all. The dictionarys were very good though.

    Getting in touch w/ your powers

    This book is a great doorway of opportunities in Celtic MAgik believers. To be able to harness the goddess' great powers is a wonderful feeling, and this book helps you along the pathway.
