Here, on sumptuously illustrated, colorful pages of traditional art and hieroglyphs, appear the spells, rites, fortune-telling systems, and talismans of the goddess Isis, narrated as if in her own voice. All these techniques are based on authentic sources, and they cover topics close to everyone's heart: health and good fortune; scarab amulets for protection against poisons; incantations to end feuding; and recipes for elixirs of seduction. Even predict the future through the Omen of the Flame, the Egyptian zodiac, and the Cairo Calendar of Auspicious Days. Fact panels and myths provide additional information on the background of each enchantment, and on ancient Egyptian life. A Selection of the One Spirit Book Club.
