Explore the secrets of Janarra (lunar) witches, Tanarra (star) witches and Fanarra (ley line) witches. Their ancient wisdoms come together here for both theoretical understanding and everyday practice. Readers will learn the gospel of Aradia and the powerful practice of "casting shadows", an ancient tradition only now available to the public.
