Sorcery implies some sort of

supernatural power over people and their affairs.

People who wield such magickal charm or influence are called Sorcerers (or Sorceresses in the case

of women). This term has a generally negative connotation, implying evil or “black” magick. The most

famous Sorceress of legend was Circe (SUR-see).

In Homer’s Odyssey, she turned Odysseus’s men

into pigs.
