About the Author
Kathy Cybele was raised in an Irish household where her mother filled her days with fairytales, Brownies (both the chocolate and the small mischievous kind) and magick. Thus, when Kathy found the path of Witchcraft in 1988, she knew she had come home. In 1992 Kathy joined a Celtic/Gardnerian coven, received her degrees, and was elevated to the rank of elder and High Priestess. Kathy founded and led The Circle of the Sacred Meadow from 1998 – 2010. Kathy still enjoys teaching in local venues and has taught over 200 classes.

Cybele's writing style is very easy to read. The print and design of the book flows from one paragraph to the next making it easy to follow and absorb the information she presents. She clearly explains the process and meanings of terms either in the chapter - or in the appendices at the end of the book. There she also includes many great charts and tables with explanations of magical references used in the work.
She presents the material in a clear and logical progression. The steps to successful magic were presented through chapters related to tending a crop. Each step includes tools and practices to help the querant develop meditation and other practices to work the magic.
She includes moon phase, color, candle, oil, incense, number charts, herbs, and resins. She provides basic recipes, explanations, meditation scripts, and the steps to start magical working for prosperity and other well intentioned wishes.
This isn't a "chant a poem and light a candle then your wishes come true" book. Cybele provides exercises, suggests meditation, and journaling for several months to establish the mindset and spirititual habits to prepare for effective metaphysical workings. It takes time to gain the confidence, habits and familiarity with how to direct and clarify your intent for specific and successful results.
The text is written in a style that makes you think you are sitting with her and she is speaking directly to you. You can "hear" encouragement in the words she writes and feel as if you have a teacher along side you through the entire process. "Sometimes a spell can be as simple as focusing our will and intent and then writing what you want onto a colored piece of paper to be carried with you," she writes in part III: Sowing the Seeds of your Prosperity.
This is an excellent book for any who wish to have effective and empowering experiences with manifesting their intent. Great for those just starting out on the path of magic work and a great source to remember the basics.
