Overview

When you dream of dragons, what is your unconscious trying to tell you?

- Why is the number 4 a sign of good luck in some cultures, bad luck in others?

- What symbolizes both the Greek goddess Diana and the Virgin Mary?

The answers to these and hundreds of other fascinating questions can be found in The Modern Witch's Book of Symbols.

Organized alphabetically by subject and lavishly illustrated with line drawings throughout, the book covers a broad range of topics culled from antique and modern sources.

Replete with detail about the profound (the association of mistletoe with the immortal human soul) and the mundane (in English alehouses, the presence of a goose could determine how a gambler placed a bet), this book is a treasure trove, not only for adepts and budding Modern Witches who want to bone up on the magical arts, but for trivia buffs and general readers as well.

I would like to quote the auther here, to make my point. Morrison writes, 'Satan: Dreaming of a being that identifies himself as Satan means you're in grave danger and should wake immediately. This kind of devil has the power to steal your soul while you're asleep and you will be found dead in the morning.' First point, witches (Not the Hollywood Hag, or Satanist) follow a Goddess based religion that does not believe there is a satan. Point two, if a dream of satan means we are dead, then this book comes a wee bit late. Third point, in her book she tells you to visit church and talk to a priest to get devil-like beings out of your dreams... Our religion has High Priests and High Priestesses (if a member of a coven), but very few churches. What I want to know is did anyone bother to edit this book for any type of relation to 'Witch' before slapping the word on the title, or was that simply for shock value. This book is about the worst book I have ever read that had the gall to put witch on its title. Shame on you Sarah Lyddon Morrison. You should read some good Scott Cunningham, the Ferrars, Starhawk, Margot Alder, Yasmine Galenorn, or Silver RavenWolf, then you would have had at least a clue what Witches are about.

i still love sarah as a writer. she is one of my favorates and every book so far that i have read by her is terrific! i still want to read this book even though it had a poor rating. sometimes, befor you buy a book, its good to read a little about it, that way you know what to expect. Sarah Lyddon Mirrison is a fantastic writer, but it all depends on what book you buy of hers that will tap your interest ^_^
