No, it’s about lies, deceit and manipulation mostly.

Not mostly. Magic also involves channeling powers from elements, other planes of existence, creating illusions, altering chemical composition, opening portals, altering physical laws, transformation of states, enchanting, symbols of power, creation of items, creation of relics, spell recording, glyphs, golem construction, and so on.

No. It is mostly about causing change in accordance with the will. One way to change is to converse with other intelligences, spirits, divines, elementals among them. Read “Practical Occultism” by Dion Fortune, and “The Art & Practice of Creative Visualisation” by Ophiel for a good start to the Practice of Magick.

No! The vast majority of magic has nothing to do with either of those things. Most magic involves minor spells and charms for things like luck, love, prosperity, protection, and success.
