Founded in 1971, The Witches' Almanac is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to general readers as well as hard-core Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology, and culture; at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for the mystic enthusiast. Modeled after the Old Farmers' Almanac, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, its subject matter is timeless--only about 15 percent of the content is specific to the date range of each issue. The theme of Issue 37 (Spring 2018-Spring 2019) is the magic of plants. Also included are the following articles: -Sigil Witchery, - -The Witch of Hadley, - -SeerStones, - -Astrological Plant Remedies, - -Pomba Gira, - -Coffin Ring, - and -Coefficient of Weirdness, Part 2.-

The study of popular weather prognostics has been considered of such interest that meteorologists have given this subject much attention.The attempt to foretell the weather is not of recent date; the ancients carefully studied the sky and clouds, and endeavored to predict the kind of weather that was likely to ensue; and a number of the popular prognostics of the weather of his time are recorded by Aristotle in his work on meteors. In later times our forefathers studied the weather, and as they had no instruments to guide them they observed natural objects and noticed the appearances of the sky and clouds, and also the movements of animals, birds, plants, etc. Shepherds and sailors especially being exposed to all kinds of weather, would naturally be on the lookout for any signs of a coming change, and after a time would begin to associate certain appearances with certain kinds of weather. A good deal of weather wisdom of the above character has been thrown into proverbs, trite sayings, and popular verse; and we propose in the present book to examine and explain some of these by the aid of the most recent discoveries of meteorological science.This book includes Popular Weather Prognostics by Ralph Abercromby & William Marriott and Proverbs Relating to Animals by Dr. C. C. Abbott. Proverbs are arranged as relating to birds, clouds, dew, fish, fog, frost, insects, the moon, plants, rain, rainbows, reptiles, stars, snow, sun, thunder and lightning, trees, wind, years, seasons, months, weeks and days, and general prognostics.
