Eight Sabbats for Witches
'The best book on practical and theoretical wicca published in years ... well written, well illustrated, crystal clear and at the same time so informative, entertaining and thought provoking.' Black Mirror
'The most genuine and informative book on witchcraft to be published this century.' Ignews
'The book is written in an informative and dignified manner,dispelling many of the myths surrounding witchcraft and its practices and detailing the actual meanings behind the beliefs and practices of witchcraft.' Foresight
In this book, now in paperback, practicing witches Janet and Stewart Farrar publish detailed and dramatic rituals for each of the eight Sabbats: the seasonal festivals of the waxing and waning year, of seed-time, harvest, and Samhain or Halloween, and , of the Sun at his midsummer glory and his midwinter rebirth. Using the cryptic hints of the Book of Shadows, they have amplified them with a wealth of mythological and folklore material, much of it gathered personally at a grass-roots level, which will fascinate witches and non-witches alike.
They also give the rituals for Casting and Banishing the Magic Circle, and the often misunderstood Great Rite of male/female polarity. In doing so they are able to reveal previously unknown information about the sources of the Book of Shadows.
Finally, they meet a long-felt need by offering moving rituals for Wiccaning (witch christening), Hand-fasting (witch wedding), and Requiem - none of which is given by the Book of Shadows. "
Eight Sabbats for Witches is one of the most important contributions to the ritual literature of Gardnerian Witchcraft since Gerald Gardner's writings first inspired the modem movement.
Why are spells effective? How can scientists investigate psychic phenomena? Can psychic power be put to practical use?
Janet and Stewart Farrar, practising witches for twenty years, maintain from their own experience and that of others that spells do work. In this authoritative study, the Farrars discuss the principles underlying all spells. They explain why a successful spell is usually composed of three elements: intent, visualization and will-power.
Careful at all times to observe basic rules of responsibility - that a spell should never intend anyone harm, or manipulate anyone against their will or nature - this is a comprehensive guide to ways of effective working.The Farrars argue that the success of the magic is more than merely psychological it must operate on body, mind and spirit in an exercise of multi-level reality. Stewart Farrar's line drawings illustrate the underlying theories in a uniquely visual way.
The book covers all aspects of spellmaking including psychic self-defence, sex magic, cabalistic magic and talismans. There is a generous anthology of actual spells worldwide, past and present,drawn from history, from literature, from old grimoires, from folklore, and from the experience of the authors and their witch friends. Spells of love, healing, weather and binding combine in this unique addition to the literature on magical working.
Janet Farrar and Virginia Russell
This has been published by: Capall Bann Publishing, Freshfields, Chieveley, Berks, UK. RG20 8TF.
This book traces the magical history of the horse throughout the centuries and explores it's connections with paganism and mythology, Biblical and Christian Lore, folklore and fairytale, healing and superstition. Loved, feared or venerated, the horse has become integrated with human work, warfare, history and sport. It has become the living symbol of many god and goddesses, the
proto-type of many mythical beasts. Janet Farrar, established writer on magic and mythology and Virginia Russell, a lifelong
horsewoman, combine their talents in this exploration of the horse's magical history. A veritable harvest of the legends, magical concepts and folk beliefs that have surrounded the horse from the dawn of history to the present day.
By Janet & Stewart Farrar and Gavin Bone

"The Pagan Path is aimed at a widely diverse audience and will be easily understood by a novice as well as the more highly initiated student of the occult. Is the newest logical extension of the long list of very impressive books on Paganism which the Farrars have to their credit. Loretta Hoback, New Age Retailer
---It's nice to see a book that presents Paganism in terms of larger, international cultural and social issues instead of staying within 'occult ghetto' walls. Chas Clifton.
The Life and Times of a Modern Witch
Witches were once so feared they were ducked in the village pond, tortured and, burned at the stake. But today there is an ever-growing mass of converts to the Wicca religion, and from all walks of life, surrounded more often by computer and electric cooker than cauldron and broomstick. The authors, themselves well-known witches, conducted a worldwide survey to answer the many questions concerning their beliefs and rituals that intrigue the uninitiated.
What kind of people become witches?
What powers do they possess
and what spells do they weave?
Are their Intentions good or evil?
Do they worship Satan?
Are they In touch with the dead,
and do they believe In reincarnation?
Are nakedness and sex an important part of their rituals?
Now, read the truth of the life and times of a modern witch.
What Witches Do
"At last, a really intelligent, well-written and informative book on present-day witchcraft." The Australian
''an engrossing portrayal of the modern coven at work." Yorkshire Morning Telegraph
"What do witches really do?''
"What is it like to be a witch?"
Experience the process through the eyes of Stewart Farrar, author, journalist and witch, as he describes in detail the activities and practices of modern day witches. Principles of healing and clairvoyance as well as rituals, invocations and initiation rites are covered in depth as Farrar accompanies the reader into the personal life of his own coven ... ''an excellent book about a subject which is too often distorted by sensationalism." The Book Exchange
The Witches' God
Lord of the Dance
Companion volume to their highly acclaimed The Witches'Goddess, this is an exhaustive work of research which sets about re-establishing the ancient balance between God and Goddess.
The book has three parts. Faces of the God examines the many concepts of the male god throughout history, including the Son/Lover God, the Vegetation God, and such negative aspects as the War God and the Anti-God. Invoking the God examines twelve individual gods of history, and also suggests an appropriate ritual for each. Gods of the World is a remarkably comprehensive directory of over a thousand gods from many world cultures past and present.
The Farrars are among the best-known authors on the Craft, and in The Witches' God have written what is likely to become the standard work on the masculine god aspect.
A Witches Bible Compleat
This collection includes two books in one large volume, Eight Sabbats for Witches and The Witches Way. You won't lose anything! This is the complete system of Wicca used by the Farrars. This book discusses every aspect of Witchcraft, including traditions, rituals, magic, training and more. A "must" for all Witches. About the authors:
Janet and Stewart Farrar have appeared frequently as known
Witches on television and radio in Britain, Ireland, and Continental
countries. Stewart Farrar, a reporter, was assigned to cover Alex
Sanders, a famous British Witch. He ended up studying with Sanders, and
eventually moved on to found his own tradition. He is also a well-known
author of occult novels, and radio and ,television plays. The Farrars live
in Ireland where the 'veil between Seen and Unseen is very thin.'
The Witches' Goddess
The Feminine Principle of Divinity
Janet and Stewart Farrar's important new work provides a unique, single~ volume reference to more than a thousand goddesses of the world. Practising witches themselves, the authors also ensure that the book is of enormous practical value in discovering and celebrating the transforming love of the Goddess.
The book falls into three main sections. Part I reveals the many, faces of the Goddess: her presence throughout history, her Earth and Moon symbolism, her Madonna and Magdalene disguises, her revelation in Woman and her influence today. In Part II, the Farrars share detailed Craft rituals for invoking the Goddess in thirteen of her many aspects from Ishtar to Isis, from dark Hecate to Aphrodite. Part III is an alphabetical listing of more than a thousand goddesses of the world, giving a brief history and the main correspondances for each. All three sections have helpful line drawings and diagrams in addition to the photographic illustrations accompanying the text.
The Witches' Goddess is an invaluable contribution to the literature on the Goddess principle, written at a time when that principle is inspiring or disturbing Western thought more than it has for many centuries.
The Witches' Way
Principles, rituals and beliefs of modern witchcraft
Janet and Stewart Farrar
'An absolute must for all those interested or active in the Wicca.' Wiccan Rede
Comprehensive, extraordinary and deeply magical, The Witches' Way has been influential throughout the New Age movement and among those dissatisfied with conventional religion. janet and Stewart Farrar ('Two of the most articulate voices of modern witchcraft', Metropolitan) have written an essential text for any student of the Craft.
A companion volume to Eight Sabbats for Witches, it reveals the text of Gerald Gardner's legendary but unpublished 'Book of Shadows' which triggered the revival of Wicca in the 1950s. Writing with the co-operation of the distinguished authority Doreen Valiente, who herself helped Gardner compile the definitive version of his seminal work, the Farrars explain what Gardner's text actually was, how he used it and - as far as can be known - what his sources were.
The Witches' Way gives in full the first, second and third degree initiation rites, the consecration rites, and the many non-ritual passages of the 'Book of Shadows', with detailed notes and comments. The authors also contribute interesting rituals of their own.
Here is a full guide to the Wiccan Path covering everything from the rationale of the Craft to reincarnation, from ethics to sex, from astral projection to psychic healing. An appendix by Doreen Valiente on Dorothy Clutterbuck, the legendary witch who initiated Gardner, completes this excellent book on the practice and theory of witchcraft.
These books are almost all out of print. You can find them in second hand shops and sometimes Amazon.com can get them through their network of dealers. Stewart was a good writer.
