Bird Magic: Wisdom of the Ancient Goddess for Pagans & Wiccans by Sandra Kynes

Connect to the Great Goddess through the Magic of Birds

Birds have been symbolic of the Great Goddess for millennia, representing her power and connection to the mysteries of life, death, and spirit. Bird Magic teaches you how to commune with the Goddess, incorporating her into your magical life through exercises, crafts, meditations, and more.

Working with bird magic helps awaken your intuition, tap into subtle energies around you, and strengthen your bond with the natural world. Providing an encyclopedic listing of more than sixty bird species—highlighting each one's history, folklore, location, appearance, and magical wisdom—Bird Magic shows how they can enhance your spiritual and personal life. With in-depth information, helpful illustrations, and hands-on guidance, this book will be your go-to reference for years to come.
