hey guys! i've already read mastering witchcraft by paul husan & the book of shadows by scott cunningham. but i'm not impressed by these. are there no well-known books which can teach spells. in 1 word, i want a spell book. any suggestions?!
-Any Christopher Penczak book. He has many. They are awesome!
- Advanced Witchcraft: Go Deeper, Reach Further, Fly Higher by Edain McCoy
Green Witchcraft Books:
-Green Witchcraft by Ann Moura
-Green Witchcraft II by Ann Moura
-Green Witchcraft III by Ann Moura
-Grimoire for the Green Witch by Ann Moura
If you haven't figured it out Ann Moura is my favorite green witch author as she goes into it beyond the basics.
-Ritualcraft by Amber K
-Creating Circles and Ceremonies by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart
Herbs, Gemstones, Candles, etc
-Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs by Scott Cunningham
-Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic by Scott Cunningham
-Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall
-Practical Candleburning Rituals: Spells & Rituals for Every Purpose by Raymond Buckland
-Advanced Candle Magick by Raymond Buckland
-Practical Sigil Magic: Creating Personal Symbols for Success by Frater U.D.
-A Practical Guide to the Runes: Their Uses in Divination and Magic by Lisa Peschel (Personally my favorite rune book)
Modern Magick would be a great starting place and will keep you occupied for months if not years alone. The first few lessons are meant to be learned over the course of a month and therefore you will have plenty of time to save up and buy the other two.
I would get the farrar one before Ille's book. (Both are great).
Kraig's book would also be useful in a physical copy.
I've tried it Lark, several times. But every site suggests it to buy! None of the sites have their pdf files available for free downloading!! But I've seen their review and read their demo version. By introspecting those two, I found out that "Spells and how they work" book is better than the Illes' book. Illes' book is too much descriptive in potions!! Have ya any other recommendations Lark??
Anything by Christopher Penczak is pure gold, but I especially like his three books of a sort of "trio," if you will:
#1: The Witch's Shield: Protection Magick and Psychic Self-Defense
#2: The Witch's Heart: The Magick of Perfect Love and Perfect Trust
#3: The Witch's Coin: Prosperity and Money Magick
I, too, read The Outer Temple of Witchcraft: Circles, Spells, and Rituals, and as a matter of fact, because it's so big, I'm actually still reading it. haha But I really treasure it for how much information and knowledge is packed into it.
I also read and loved his book Instant Magick: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Spellcraft. Just as the subtitle suggests, it takes the ancient wisdom and practice of traditional Witchcraft and applies those respective lessons and then some to a modern way of thinking about casting spells and working Magick in our daily lives and on the go. It's truly a must-have staple for every dedicated Witch's bookshelf. I plan to reread it soon, of course after I finish OTOW first. lol
