This year's Almanac goes green - and every other gorgeous color Nature provides for the delight of mortals. We offer a particularly fascinating line-up of articles honoring the plant kingdom: Osanyin, Yoruba Lord of Plants; Papyrus reed, source of civilization; the Lotus, Sacred Lily of the Ages; Aphrodisiac Spices, since erotic hope springs eternal; the Mandrake Root and how to banish its imp; Floriography, the language of flowers; Roses and more roses, favorite of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love. An astrological profile of Dr. Nicholas Culpepper, the superb 17th-century herbalist. More green in the form of Absinthe, the "Green Fairy," a high-spirited elixir newly restored to the U.S.

We offer Cross Quarter Day memories from Old New England; thank Quetzalcoatl for Chocolate, today's hot topic for foodies; discover the secrets of Hex Signs; examine the daunting baggage of the Left Handed. As for every year you will enjoy the excellent art, accurate horoscopes, astrological information, weather predictions, holiday-date list, entertaining folk stories, myths and significant fairy tales. And this year, a new travel feature by Armand Taber, Sites of Awe. Be sure to check out this exceptional issue.

To err is divine? ...We hope so.
Mars may have been frowning on us when we set up this year's Aries horoscope. Last year's Aries Presage crept into the current Witches Almanac pages due to a printer's error. We are most apologetic for the inconvenience. Please click to print out the correct Aries version.
