Hot Stone Diagnostic Spell

A Scottish diagnostic method attempts to determine from which part of the body an illness derives.
  1. Designate individual stones to represent parts of the body. Traditionally three are used, one for the head, one for the heart, and one for the body but you can designate any number or system that suits your situation, provideing the stones are distinctive and identifiable.
  2. Place them overnight to rest in the hot ashes of the hearth. (No hearth? Burn incense in a cauldron and use that instead.)
  3. In the morning, drop the stones one at a time into a basin of cold water.
The one making the loudest sound on contact with the water provides the diagnosis.

The Witches' Almanac goes Greener
You already know that The Witches' Almanac, Ltd. is a small, privately-held publishing company dedicated to bringing you quality titles that will become treasured keepsakes. So it's no secret that we love books. Books are made of pages, pages are made of paper, and paper is made from wood pulp (yup, that's trees). Our Green Campaign isn't about abandoning tradition and moving entirely to an electronic format. It's about the respect that grows naturally from our love of books. It's about turning that respect into an action plan and doing our utmost to be good stewards. So we will continue to bring you the printed publications you've grown to love, but we'll make every effort to eliminate unnecessary paper in other areas of our company.

You can become a part of that effort by agreeing to join our email list. Instead of sending you flyers, announcements, catalogs and the like, we'd prefer to send you emails. We promise not to fill your inbox with a barrage of advertisements. And we solemnly swear to keep your private information private. Rest assured that any information you share with The Witches' Almanac, Ltd. will never be sold or shared with anyone else, for any reason, period.

Our Green Campaign goes beyond saving paper. There are computers, phones, fax machines and all manner of electricity-consuming devices that keep the staff connected and the company operating. As good stewards of the earth we will do whatever we can to reduce our carbon footprint. Please help us achieve this goal by clicking the logo below to sign up for paperless communication.
