In the Druid tradition, many plants, herbs, flowers, and mushrooms are considered sacred and to have special meanings, and are prominent features of mythology and legend. The Druid Plant Oracle presents these stories and the virtues and qualities that have been traditionally ascribed to these plants, through an oracle that is able to offer unique guidance and inspiration. The thirty-six cards each show a plant within its natural habitat and offers details within this 'miniature landscape' that are also described in the text. The book gives detailed descriptions of the meaning of each card, with keywords for upright and reversed positions, and information on the mythology and lore associated with each plant. Six ways of conducting a reading are offered, ranging from The Pentagram, a simple spread useful when exploring blockages to personal and spiritual development, to Ceridwen's Cauldron, recommended for issues concerning creative projects, and for those times when life seems to be in a state of flux.

The first and only Druidic book of spells, rituals, and practice. The Druid Magic Handbook is the first manual of magical practice in Druidry, one of the fastest growing branches of the Pagan movement. The book breaks new ground, teaching Druids how to practice ritual magic for practical and spiritual goals within their own tradition. What sets The Druid Magic Handbook apart is that it does not require the reader to use a particular pantheon or set of symbols. Although it presents one drawn from Welsh Druid tradition, it also shows the reader how to adapt rites and other practices to fit the deities and symbols most meaningful to them. This cutting edge system of ritual magic can be used by Druids, Pagans, Christians, and Thelemites alike! This is the first manual of Druidic magical practice ever, replete with spell work and rituals.
