Mountain Conjure and Southern Root Work
Folk magic conjurer and root worker Orion Foxwood invites you to take a walk through his native Appalachia, through moonlit orchards and rural farms, to the dark of the crossroads. From the oral tradition of his ancestors to the voices of the spirits themselves, Foxwood brings readers the secrets of Southern magic: •
Working by the signs (the ability to synchronize work such as farming, fertility, and orcharding)
•Settling the light (candle magic)
•Doctoring the root (the ability to use herbs, roots, stones, or animal parts for magic or for clearing, cleansing, and blessing a person)
•Praying or dreaming true (blessings of spirit/God to a person, place, or thing as well as prophetic or predictive dreaming)
•Blessing or cursing
Mountain Conjure and Southern Root Work shows how to create magic in today’s world with the old ways and traditions of Appalachia.
