Pure Magic



A Complete Course in Spellcasting

Author: Judika Illes

Pure Magic is one of those rare works of modern-day witchcraft that has already become a classic.  First published twenty years ago, the book has become an essential resource for beginners and experienced devotees of the magical arts.  Written by one of today’s most trusted and beloved teachewrs and writers on magic and witchcraft, Pure Magic provides

  • a basic introduction to magic,
  • a complete glossary of psychic and magical terminology,
  • a primer on the four elements,
  • a survey of magical supplies (including minerals and botanicals),
  • and a compendium of spells for any situation.

Also included is guidance on how and where to practice magic; how to rightly use words of power; and how to cleanse, protect, and enhance your magical self.

Pure Magic explores the ins and outs of magic in a manner that is approachable for the beginner, but there’s also a rare depth of practical wisdom for successful magic and spiritual partnership which may not be obvious on the first reading.  This is a book that I’ve returned to periodically over the years and each time I’m struck by insight and perspective that continue to enhance and level-up by own magic and relationship with spirits.”

-from the foreword by Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch: A Metaphysical Guide to Meditation, Magick, and Manifestation

This book was previously published as The Big Book of Practical Spells.  This new Weiser Classics edition includes a foreword by Mat Auryn and a new preface by the author.
