'Signs, Symbols, and Omens: An Illustrated Guide to Magical and Spiritual Symbolism' is an excellent source for those who are in the occult and need to make a quick referance check. Unfortunately, though, this book lacks the depths of a well written occult piece due to the fact that its symbols are widely varied. Instead of giving a look of each culture and its history, it simply details the symbol as main stream or pre-mainstream occultists have viewed it. This book is a good quick and clean referance manual and nothing more.

I don't know if it was just me or what, but I was expecting this book to be about seeing signs, symbols and omens in and around you. Not actual regular signs. Like the street signs of the pagan world. Obviously I jumped the gun with this one by simply going by the title. Its a very quick once over of the dull content it has.Was this review helpful?
