Enchantments: A Modern Witch's Guide to Self-Possession Reviews
Netgalley provided me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Enchantments is a really refreshing take on witchcraft. Mya Spalter uses approachable, modern language and symbolism to explain things. It makes it so much easier to absorb the information and relate it to my own life, rather than trying to parse meaning from the many Neopagan/witchy books that rely on old-fashioned language and iconography in an attempt to sound more "spiritual" or "occulty," but just end up ...more
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. This book is about recognizing and making the most of the magic in your life. The author works at a magic store, not the trick kind, in New York. Mya, gives you everyday ways to make magic happen in your life and to recognize it and make it more powerful. This is an interesting read and if you are into magic, a good read.
Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review. Once upon a time I was into crystals and spells, so I was quite interested in this book, which covers how modern witches practice. This book has a very conversational tone to it and not only did I learn, I laughed.
This is a wonderful guide to everything pagan. It shows you how to set up altars and cast spells. It is great for the beginner and those more experienced.
I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a review copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of it.
For beginners, but I love her writing style... I hope she writes more in depth type books.
This book also prompted a visit to Enchantments :)
I'm not wiccan or currently practicing witchcraft, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the hell out of this book! The author is irreverent, funny, blunt, and honest - in short, everything I love in a non-fiction author. Divided into two sections, Enchantments covers witchy implements (alters, herbs, colors, stars, calendars, etc) and magical intentions (astrology, money drawing, attraction, etc.). Threaded in amongst all this fun knowledge are wonderful drawings and keen insight on modern witc ...more
A beginner’s guide to everything you need to start noticing and using magic that is all around you, from crystals and colors to intention candles and tarot. Mya Spalter’s voice is honest, never holier-than-thou, and approachable. Though she reminds the reader constantly that she doesn’t know everything, I did learn quite a bit from her in this book. The best part about this book is that Spalter doesn’t lay down rules and regulations; instead she offers ideas, options, and advice. She reminds the ...more
