WELCOME, INTREPID SEEKER, TO THE FOREST OF RITES

Here you will discover the secrets of Celtic magic and myth, at the tutelage of some of the most respected and knowledgeable minds in our realm.

WHAT IS CELTIC MAGIC?

The Celts practiced various forms of divination, from the ogham to druid sticks, to scrying, to astrology, and quite a bit more in between.

BEGIN YOUR TRAINING
Each kind of divination technique is taught in a separate part of the forest from the other. Before you make your way to your training of choice, let's recite this warding from harm, together:

"May I be an island in the sea,
may I be a hill on the land,
may I be a star when the moon wanes,
may I be a staff for the weak one:
I shall wound every man,
no man shall wound me."
