Discover the History, Magick & Myths of the Horned One
Explore the deep spiritual roots of the Horned God and discover rituals and activities designed to help you get closer to him.Throughout history, horned deities have been honored as gods of nature, sex, fertility, passion, sacrifice, death, and rebirth. The Horned God of the Witches reveals the origins and features of their most common guises—Pan, Cernunnos, Herne, Elen of the Ways, the Green Man, and even the Devil.
Whether you are interested in the Wiccan Horned God—a more contemporary composite of several deities—or in one of his many other forms, these rituals for meeting the powerful deity will help you achieve your magical goals. With hands-on techniques for divination, creating an altar, working magick, spiritual lovemaking, and receiving the gifts of the Witchfather, this book supports a transformative deepening of your relationship to the divine.
“As a practitioner who works solely with one deity I was inspired by Jason to explore the potential to incorporate the Horned God into my own workings. The practices in this book are well thought out and elaborate while maintaining the ability for the perfect level of adaptability. This is a book I will revisit time and again in order to explore the magick and many aspects of The Horned God of the Witches.”—Vincent Higginbotham, author of How Witchcraft Saved My Life
“The Horned God of the Witches takes us on a tour through ancient times and up to the present, casting a fresh light upon many antlered and horned deities that have remained shrouded in mystery through the ages. Mankey offers simple yet meaningful rituals along the way while sharing valuable personal anecdotes from his own practice.”—Kate Freuler, author of Of Blood and Bones
“As a modern devotee of Cernunnos myself, I particularly appreciate the space carved in this book for the ongoing transformation of the Horned God’s agency in the modern world. For Mankey, Old Hornie’s legacy is an invitation to participate in the next chapter of the Horned God’s story, right here, right now. I, for one, am all aboard.”—Meg Rosenbriar author of Healing Power of Witchcraft
“Jason Mankey has given the craft a thorough, in-depth, and enjoyable analysis of the horned god of the witches!”— Christopher Orapello, coauthor of Besom, Stang & Sword
