I absolutely love books. In particular, witchy books. Anything that talks about witchcraft, the moon, the seasons, the elements and how it all works together and how you can use it. There are so many books out there and it can be really hard to choose which is best or tempting to buy them all, guilty!
Over the years I have gone through a lot of books and now have a fair idea of which are useful and which aren’t. I want to share with you four books form my personal collection that I highly recommend. These four books, I will not part with.
NB: The links shared in this blog are affiliated Amazon links. However, these books are my own, purchased over the last few years. I have not been paid to review them.
This fabulous book details each month of the year. For each month there are moon phase tables and details of that months moon significant events and tips on how to make the most of these times. Sunrise and sunsets for the month are also detailed along with phases of the sun throughout the month, same goes for the sea and tides. For each month, seasonal vegetables and plants are listed, along with a couple of recipes incorporating some of them. Animals and flowers are also listed as well as details of a ‘charm of the month’. It is a valuable tool for anyone practicing magick, meditation and/or energy healing. Note: the link for this book is the 2021 almanac as the 2020 version looks no longer available.
This book is full of rituals and self care. It covers topics from crystals, tarot and astrology to understanding magick, solstices and full moons. It takes the theme of teaching about witchcraft but with a modern edge and how it works with the type of lifestyle we might have today. Not only is it a great book, information wise, but it is beautiful inside and out.
Another beautifully bound book, it’s a pleasure to hold and read and is eye catching on the shelf. This book is great for beginners and experienced alike. The book includes spells, charms and spells and it details practices that can be adapted to your own situation. A very interesting read that contains the history of witchcraft too.
This book focuses on the necessity of selfcare with a little help from witchcraft. It contains advice on looking after your body, mind and spirit with spells, meditations, mantras and powerful activities to help you relax, release guilt, embrace your strength and make your own beauty products to name a few. A beautifully written and illustrated book.
I hope you have found this blog useful and may even have found a book or two to add to your collection. I will follow this blog up soon with some of my favourite crystal books and maybe one of my favourite oracle decks too.
