Exploring the magical pagan traditions of the people now called celtic, germanic, scandinavian, slavonic, and baltic, nigel pennick examines the underlying principle of the northern tradition--the concept of wyrd--and how it empowers the arts of operative magic, such as direct natural magic and talismanic or sigil magicThrough direct natural magic, individuals can shape shift, journey out of the body, or send one of their three souls (fylgia or fetch) ahead of themSigil magic involves the powers contained in objects, which can be channeled after the appropriate ritualRunes are the most powerful sigils in the northern tradition and were used to ward off illness, danger, hostile magic, and malevolent spiritsEmphasizing the importance of the cycles of nature to the tradition, pennick explores the eightfold sun dials and the four ways the solar year is definedHe looks at the days of the week and their symbolic association with different deities as well as why particular acts are performed on certain days and what the customary lucky and unlucky days areHe also examines sacred spaces, household magic, protection spells, and the role of music in the northern tradition
