Learn About the Power of Magic with the Spell-Binding Ellen Dugan
For those who are interested in reading an informative Pagan book without the “love and light” approach that has been in vogue since Silver Ravenwolf burst onto the scene, why not take a walk down the garden path with Ellen Dugan?
Dugan is the author of titles such as Practical Protection Magick, Garden Witch’s Herbal, and Natural Witchery. She even teamed up with award-winning artist Mark Evens to create her own tarot deck too. The Witch’s Tarot uses the traditional Rider-Waite format but adds a more modern Pagan twist that muggles and witches alike will swoon for.
Known for her psychic talents and skills at gardening, Dugan has been a practicing witch for more than 30 years and is currently the reigning High Priestess of her St. Louis-based coven. In terms of writing, aside from her books on witchcraft, Dugan has also been a contributing writer for Llewellyn’s Magical Almanac, Sabbat Almanac, Witches Calender and Datebook as well.
Unlike other popular Pagan authors, Dugan has a no-nonsense approach to her books. For example, in Practical Protection Magick she teaches common sense solutions before using magic. Most of her suggestions will not only help her readers stay calm in the face of toxic, manipulative people but will also aid them in learning how to avoid them all together as well. Each section is divided into one of the four elements–earth, air, fire, and water–and teaches readers how to incorporate the qualities of each into their own personal wards and shields. If you have ever felt that you were sensitive to people’s energy, this is a fantastic addition to your bookshelf.
Whether you’re looking to protect yourself from negative energy or to improve your green thumb, Dugan’s books are helpful, funny, and entertaining reads!
