    He is a figure shrouded in mystery, the Christians call him the devil, but to witches he has a variety of names Known he is as the man in black, auld horny, the goat food god etc He come to ritual when properly bidden The man in black is the central deity in traditional witchcraft The devil is the one who initiates you into the mysteries, he stands in the great in between in fact he is the in between.Gemma Gary has produced another small masterpiece that contains thirteen ritual dedicated to the old one Mind you these are not Wiccan rituals these are based on traditional witchcraft The directions are different and the tools have a slightly different use One tool that Wicca does not have is that of the stang The stang represents the horned god but it also represent the male and female aspects of deity and the approach is unity and love.The first rite is a calling the man in black like the rest of the rituals this one should occur far away from human habitation, like out in nature or in some abandoned building This first ritual pulls you away from the strictures of civilized man and pulls you back into the carnal forces of nature When you summon the man in black he can appear at any times and in several different forms Sometimes he comes in the form of a hound, a hare , a cat, a crow or a man in a black hat and jacket Keep your eyes open.The next ritual is a self initiation This one dedicates you to the path of the man in black This ritual is done in an abandoned churchyard on a full moon light Churches have holy power and are connected with divine energy and energy of those who have invested in that religion Plus there is an aspect of rebellion against oppressive authority here.The third ritual empowers the witch s nowl The witch s nowl is an Iron nail that is magically empowered with divine energy The divine energy comes from the red serpent who lives in the ground of the earth Once the nail is empowered it is nailed into the ground t empower the working place.The third ritual leads to the fourth ritual where in the practitioner obtains a stang and empowers it with magic or energy An iron nail is nailed in the bottom to seal the energy in It has horns on the top It represents the horned god but also the masculine and feminine It could have magical uses like that of the wand or it could be used as an object of devotion and veneration.Now that was a sampling o the rituals that are offered The book is small but the directions are full, complete and easy to follow I read through the book in one day, it was that good This is a book that any level of practitioner can use.

    The Devil s Dozen is one of those texts that one may be in danger of taking for granted the value of this book.I initially took this book up first because I looked at the page count and saw 160 pages and simply thought, this will do for some light reading over the weekend Little did I appreciate that author, Gemma Gary, would find a truly approachable method for aspiring students of Traditional Witchcraft to approach this often enigmatic if not often misrepresented branch of modern witchcraft Approaching the Devil figure of Man In Black as a sort of engrained psychopomp the book takes on echoes of the ancient initiatic traditions of old As with all initiations this is only the beginning and where I feared this book may have gone the way of so many Wicca101 style books offering pseudo initiatory experience this book DID NOT in fact lead the student reader through a series of initiatory rites promising false illusions of divine knowledge Instead, Gary brings the reader through the key tools of a traditional witch.Where else Gary could have run down a well trodden rabbit hole in modern pagan authorship is that she did not hand deliver the reader to a surface layer reading of an experience At every opportunity the reader is invited to make use of the suggested rituals and adaptions as needed and they are also invited to experience the Craft first hand How deeply one reads into the ritual experience text is very much up to the reader, but there is definitely a wealth of information and experience backing up this work.

    Excelente livro que traz alguns rituais da bruxaria tradicional Al m disso, antes de apresentar o ritual em si, traz um breve relato da contextualiza o dos elementos e significados, que o ritual conter Os rituais apresentados s o relatos das tradi es que por algumas pr ticas atuais s o desconsideradas, portanto, considero, como um resgate de alguns elementos que representam a bruxaria antiga Os utens lios e materiais que s o citados nos rituais n o s o t o exc ntricos e imposs veis de se conseguir, apesar de que alguns s o bem caracter sticos da regi o de onde o livro surge Boscastle The Old One apresentado pela autora como Bucca, e ao longo do livro diversas pr ticas s o dadas no entendimento do mesmo, trabalhando a inicia o, o empoderamento, a uni o, a prote o e a devo o.

    This book and its rituals and lore made me live deliciously every moment I was reading it These aren t rites for no Wiccan, light worker, Harm None, positively witch These rituals are rooted in sources folklore and are concerned with the powers that are activated when you step out into a dark night alone in the middle of the woods, and speak the names of a being we ve been raised to fear And then it challenges you to do call it to you, and to be vulnerable, and to find the power the comes from sitting through the fear.
