5 Books for Your Witchy Side

I love books, and I especially enjoy books on witchcraft and divination. I am gathering quite the collection of new books now that I get free books from the publisher for unbiased reviews (in fact, they say I don’t have to review them at all, and I still get them for free — that’s a great deal).

518h0PPcnBL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_This week I decided to focus on some of my favorite I’ve gotten in the past few months, beginning with Palm Reading for Beginners by Kenneth Lagerstrom.

I already have a few palm reading books and a friend who does palm reading — but there are some books you can never have too many of. Lagerstrom’s book is colorful, and I love the artwork. Instead of your basic line drawing graphs with all the life lines and such, this book opted for a more creative look.

This is an excellent beginner’s guide, and it’s incredibly affordable ($11.99 cover price USD). I love that it’s an easy-to-read guide, and the colorful insides keep your eyes happy!

51YsKIWy39L._SY498_BO1,204,203,200_If you’re a crystal lover (like me), you’ll love Karen Frazier’s An Introduction to Crystal Grids. Crystal grids are a new concept to me, so I was excited to get my hands on a book from an author I like.

I love that this book touches base on the importance of crystal shapes, not just colors and meanings. Frazier breaks the grids down into categories of what you might need them for, from public speaking engagements to increasing your creativity.

This is a must-have guide for all witches and healers if you’re working with crystals regularly!41xw4VYCisL._SX404_BO1,204,203,200_

The Complete Guide to Astrology by Louise Edington will surely help you better understand your birth chart and makes a great companion to Modern Astrology. I’ve had a passion for astrology and horoscopes since I was a kid, and both of these books from Edington have renewed my love of the subject and brought me into the world of birth charts. Birth charts are essential to really understand your astrological makeup — sun signs are just one small part of it!

No list of witchy books would be complete without some spells and rituals. Two amazing witchy books I recently got my hands on are The Spell Book for New Witches by Ambrosia Hawthorn and The Witch’s Guide to Ritual by Cerridwen Greenleaf. Both books are full of useful info for new witches and experienced folks in the craft.

The spell book is filled spells for everyday life, to help you deal with anything that comes at you. I love the spell descriptions, the creativity behind each spell, and that the instructions are easy to follow.

The ritual book is also excellent for novices and experts. It covers how to get started with a ritual, and many of the basic rituals you may want to do (from sabbats to moon phases). It’s a very descriptive book and has all you need to start practicing as a witch or Pagan!

Crystals for Beginners by Karen Frazier

51o8JEGCYtL._SX351_BO1,204,203,200_I am no “beginner” when it comes to using crystals for healing. I am also one of those wonderful people who believe you can never have too many crystals, nor too many crystal books. Crystals for Beginners is a welcome addition to my collection.

Not a comprehensive guide to crystals and their attributes like the many volumes of The Crystal Bible, Crystals for Beginners is an introduction to using crystals which looks at some of the most commonly used stones you’ll find in people’s collection.

With vivid colors, this book is pleasing to the eyes. From keeping your crystals cleansed and charged to using crystal grids, the basics are covered. There is a section on colors, helping you understand how crystal color works with healing and magic workings.

The ‘Crystal prescriptions’ section is what really makes this book stand out, and is the reason it’s staying in my collection. This section breaks down your issue (stress, abuse, illness) and gives you a mantra, meditation tips, and/or a crystal grid to help you use your healing crystals to their full advantage.

Beginner or not, I highly recommend this book!

I got it for free from the publisher, but this review contains my honest feelings.

Everyday Crystal Rituals By Naha Armady

41MaKAEGDvLThis book… If you already use crystals or you’ve only been thinking about using them to better your life, this book will be a much-loved addition to your collection. I love it, and I have been through it twice so far.

Everyday Crystals Rituals is put together in a way that makes it easy to follow. It has the colorful stone photos you’d expect from a book about crystals. This helps you with identifying the crystals in your collection (because we all know after the first dozen you start to forget the names of some of them).

This book will help you with your love life, self-love, wealth, your career, and it will even help you enjoy your home life more. The book is detailed when it comes to each and every ritual. You won’t be confused, even if you’re a beginner in the fine art of crystal healing. You don’t have to be witchy, you just have to want to live a better life.

 

I received this book for free from the publisher for this honest and unbiased review.
