Meet the Author

The Campanellis have been practicing Wiccans since 1968. Because of their deep religious beliefs they have evolved a lifestyle based on natural magick. In their 18th century home in western New Jersey, magick is a part of their everyday life.

Pauline and Dan have written and illustrated several books and many articles on Witchcraft. They have also recounted their personal experiences with the Spirit World for Circle Network News and Fate magazine. Other paranormal experiences shared by Pauline and Dan have been included in Haunted Houses: U.S.A., and More Haunted Houses, and in Alan Vaughn's Incredible Coincidence.

Both Dan and Pauline are professional artists. Dan works in watercolor, Pauline in oils. They are each listed in thirteen reference books, including Who's Who in American Art and The International Dictionary of Biographies. Their home and artwork were featured in Colonial Homes, March/April 1981 and Country Living Magazine, April 1985 and October 1992. New Jersey Network produced a program on their artwork and lifestyle for PBS in 1985. Their paintings have been published as fine art prints and are available throughout the United States and Europe.

Read an Excerpt

Have you ever used a Ouija board? It's a variation on an older technique where you placed small cards, each with a letter of the alphabet, in a circle on top of a smooth, polished table. Then, you inverted a stemmed wineglass in the center of the circle. People around the table placed their fingertips on the base of the glass and it would start moving to the letters, spelling out words. It was quite the rage during the middle 1800s.

You will discover further information on how to use the wineglass for divination and spirit contact, within the chapter on the month of October, in Wheel of the Year by Pauline Campanelli. You'll also learn about apple traditions, hazel symbolism, the Samhain circle and feast of the dead, a Wassailing ritual, the "Witching Hour," and much more.

That's only for October. Each of the other months is covered, sharing magical techniques, spiritual wisdom, rituals, lore, and Pagan traditions that will help make every day special.

Wheel of the Year is filled with the kind of ideas that are traditional and even ancient, but can make your life more fulfilling today and tomorrow. Get Wheel of the Year and enjoy life more.

    Excellent and Practical

    An excellent how-to book for celebrating the turning of the wheel. Probably a little too intense for the neophyte. Read in conjuction with Scott Cunningham's works, it is the perfect book.
