What a fascinating title! I can already tell I'll be coming back to this one often, to look things up or just to reread and enjoy. I had a vague knowledge of some of this information, but the depth of it is wonderful and it's laid out very clearly. Sadly it's been raining the last few days so I can't try anything out, but I certainly plan to! A great read, perfect for novices right up to experienced energy workers.
"This is my first experience with the writings of Rachel Patterson, but after reading PAGAN PORTALS - SUN MAGIC, I can confidently tell you that this book is only the first of many of her books that I will be eagerly purchasing and devouring. What an incredibly written, beautifully magical book! I read this book in record time, reached out to the author to let her know how incredibly healing her writing was for me, then read the book again! SUN MAGIC was extremely informative, yet written in such an intimate, friendly way. Being new to this path, I am so grateful for Rachel Patterson, for the kindness that comes through in her writing, and for her immense wisdom that she generously chooses to share with the rest of us. A definite recommend! Rating: 5 out of 5 stars"
"Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. As a fascinated of titles that help you get in touch with the ancient ways through the ancestors, I found this title from Rachel, more than a little interesting. It contains exercises to allow you to get in touch with the sun aspects, tells you about the various pantheon sun aligned god/desse/s to whom if you're a theological witch to whom to appeal to alongside which animals are aligned to the sun if you're more druidic or shamanistically focused.
Throw into the mix some kitchen witch recipes, ways to help charge your crystals and stones alongside various ways to cast your spells or organize yourself via the time of day and its a book you can't do without. Finally add to this, a friendly and at times humorous voice that allows you to dip in and enjoy the various chapters, all round make this a wonderful title to spend time with."
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed how this book was devoted to looking towards the sun for spiritual guidance. So many books are focused on moon rituals, this is a refreshing change to your spiritual enlightenment. I love the different topics the author includes in this book to perform sun magic. Incense, teas and my favorite crystals and their properties are wonderfully explained and categorized as a go to reference guide for a variety of sun rituals. The author even includes a section on Sun Animals and Solar Deities and their influences on these rituals. If you are looking to be more in tune with sun magic, "Pagan Portals-Sun Magic" by Rachel Patterson, should be in your witchy library.
