Quick Take The Spell Book for New Witches is an excellent introduction into witchcraft that debunks the myths surrounding this spiritual practice.
Like all books on this subject, the information presented should be taken with a grain of salt as everybody's practice is different. Tell Me More I have been a spiritual practitioner of witchcraft for some time, and I am extremely passionate about sharing the beauty of this spiritual practice with others. Witchcraft the spellbook often been seen as a "bad word" Quick Take The Spell Book for New Witches is an excellent introduction into witchcraft that debunks the myths surrounding this spiritual practice. Witchcraft has often been seen as a "bad word" because some religions have defined it as evil; but in reality, witchcraft is the practice of connecting with the natural world and acknowledging and utilizing the energies that all living things bring into existence.
The Spell Book for New Witches is a beautiful first reader on the subject because Ambrosia The spellbook explains some of the histories of this practice while providing a plethora of example spells that one can use to become acquainted with the practice.
She also explains many of the different objects that witches use, and why they are important, without telling the reader exactly what they must do to be considered a "witch". I wish that I had found this book when I was first exploring witchcraft because it makes the reader feel well informed and welcomed. So many other texts make the reader feel as though they have to earn the right to be considered a "witch", but Hawthorn presents love and acceptance through her writing that creates a lovely learning and reading experience. Whether you are interested in learning about witchcraft or are a seasoned practitioner, The Spell Book for New Witches will bring you new insight while debunking the myths surrounding this beautiful spiritual practice.
I have increased my knowledge base of spells while learning new things about witchcraft through reading this book.
I passionately recommend The Spell Book for New Witches to help you begin or expand your spiritual practice. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the beauty of witchcraft!

The Spell Book for New Witches is another Wiccan-based even though the author doesn't like to label her practice, some of it was pretty obvious spell book with a bunch of woo-woo intention setting that doesn't really jive with tradcraft or more historical-based witchcraft.
Most of the "spells" in this a 2. Most of the "spells" in the spellbook are throwing some herbs in a baggie and really believing in something. She recommends using herbs, but without the spellbook list of correspondences for why she chose those herbs; admittedly, this is meant to be more of a practical book of shadows rather than a grimoire, so that may be excused, except she says they're the same thing at one point.
This is especially annoying as she mentions hoodoo earlier, and even has - what I believe to have originated in hoodoo - a recipe for Come to Me Oil though it uses Wiccan-correspondence herbs, rather than traditional hoodoo ones that you would typically see in a Come to Me Oil. The judgey-judgey and "all witches believe The list of resources is pretty thin and definitely not historical or even traditionally-based, as far as I can see, and there's a lot of emphasis on crystals, which is a little too New Agey for my cold dead heart.
The illustrations and layout, however, are beautiful, and the book is well-organized and well-written, with no editorial mistakes that I could see, which isn't something I take for granted with small publications like these, so kudos to that. And, as I said, it has a pretty cover.
All in all, if you're Wiccan or more into New Agey magic, this might be a good book for you, especially for beginners. For those who are more practiced in their craft or prefer some documentation along with their magic, then look elsewhere.
In more traditional magic, there are very strict correspondences, and messing it up can have dire consequences. Historical witchcraft, likewise, does a lot of research into what meant what so that they can have an accurate rendition of ancient potions and spells, because they believe that it does matter, and substituting any old herb because you want to is Not Done.

I received a free copy of this book, but that did not influence my review. This book was a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the the spellbook and content were great, but much was a bit underwhelming. The background presented was cursory, which may be fitting for a beginner book. That said, given the depth of spells then shown, more background might have been useful. As a very basic introduction, it does the job, This book was a bit of a mixed bag. As a very basic introduction, it does the job, though readers may be better served by reading the references listed then coming back to this material.
The spells themselves were pretty good. Each section has many spells that do the same thing, but I liked how the reader had options to find the rituals that best suited their needs and style. The spells did require, as a general rule, items and supplies that are easily obtained making the book accessible for anyone just starting out.

If meditative ritual is your thing, this would be a handy reference. Power is the practical art of channeling magic for your use. When you begin bending and channeling magic, you are, in a sense, building up your personal power. But Spellcasting is just one of the many ways to manipulate energy. This book was also very scan-able and beautiful, which made it an easy read. Aug 10, Brenda Hasse rated it it was amazing.
I was reading this book for research. Well written. Feb 06, Aleksandra rated it liked it.
Thank you NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! I thought this book was cute. It was a quick read and it was pretty informative. I really enjoyed and will be trying some of these spells. The only thing that really rubbed me the wrong way was how the beginning was pretty repetitive, other than that I really liked it. The spells seem easy enough and this author seems well informed on this topic.
