curandero/a of Latin America, who is an herbal healer or the like. The English version of the Latin magus (magician), which came from the Greek magos (learned, priestly class). Another virtual synonym for wizard, and definitely a magic user. Little used in current speech, and normally only found in fantasy novels. The term may be used to denote a specific rank in ceremonial magic societies, however. My comments about the derivations of these words come from the Online Etymological Dictionary, which normally references the OED, which is the default standard for definition and roots of the English language. For usage, I quote my own experience of meeting Pagans and students of the esoteric from all across the USA over a period of more than 40 years.
