From the authors of The Book of Faery Magic comes an enchanting new adventure into the power and beauty of water and the oceanic realm. Brimming with sea magic, inner journeys, fun recipes and rich research, Mermaid Magic will help you develop your own deep connection to the element of water. Work with the ocean and its creatures, learn about tides and lunar phases, divine your future with sea oracles, absorb the healing energies of sacred wells and springs, become an eco warrior, and discover the beauty of mermaid lore and legends - and how to call on the mermaids for love and transformation. Whether you believe mermaids are living beings or a beautiful myth, they have long reflected our greatest hopes and embodied our deepest fears. They have been cast as helpful sea beings, innocents prepared to sacrifice all for a human soul, and sirens intent on luring men into temptation. Today they are stronger, kinder and more powerful than ever - and are inspiring a new wave of ocean guardians to care for our fragile planet and its sacred bodies of water.

- Invoke mermaids and sea goddesses for health and happiness.
- Dive in with dolphins, whales, dugongs and sea turtles.
