    Book Review – The Last Priestess of Malia by Laura Perry

    Book Review The Last Priestess of Malia by Laura Perry 520 pages     I’ve read some of Laura’s other works before, such as her fascinating work on Minoan spirituality. I’d also very much enjoyed her ghost-love story, The Bed, which is a fantastic example of “Witch Lit”, an exciting genre of magical writing. The Last Priestess of Malia is on a completely different level. I feel like Laura has emerged as an incredible world-builder. She’s created a fascinating insight into what the Minoan culture may have been like, allowing the reader to fully immerse themselves in that world. Aria is a dedicated child of the temple, a priestess whose…

    Book Review – Revolutionary Witchcraft: A Guide To Magical Activism by Sarah Lyons

    Book Review Revolutionary Witchcraft: A Guide To Magical Activism by Sarah Lyons 158 Pages     “This is a book about magic, politics, and how we can change the world when we blend the two together,” activist and practicing witch Sarah Lyons writes in the introduction to her book, “Revolutionary Witchcraft: A Guide To Magical Activism.” What many refer to as energy, prana or the Force, Lyons likes to call power, noting “politics is about power.” Magic has always been used to channel the power of desperation, pain and rage by people with no other means to achieve justice. And because “[w]itches get their power from a connection with the…

    Oracle Deck Review – Arcane Bullshit Fortune-Telling Deck by Evan Doherty

    Oracle Deck ReviewArcane Bullshit Fortune-Telling Deck by Evan Doherty Arriving in time to save us from the disappearance of Mad Magazine, the Arcane Bullshit Fortune-Telling Deck is a self-published fortune-telling deck, created by Evan Doherty and funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign. Doherty feels that the tarot world takes itself way to seriously, and that the occult should be less about rules and formalities and way more about creativity and dick jokes. After getting my hands on this beautifully crafted deck and working with the cards, I tend to agree with him. The deck consists of 105 cards, and yes, there are no suits and no Major and Minor Arcana…

It begins with a very basic herbal primer – how to know if your herbs are of good quality, how to make salves, tinctures, poultices and more, all things that herbalists know. Part I is “Herbs of the Spirits and the Dead and…

    Book Review – Herbal Magick: A Guide to Herbal Enchantments, Folklore, and Divination by Gerina Dunwich

    Book Review Herbal Magick: A Guide to Herbal Enchantments, Folklore, and Divination By Gerina Dunwich 240 pp. Red Wheel/Weiser     “Herbal Magick: A Guide to Herbal Enchantments, Folklore, and Divination” is a wonderful collection of mythology, superstitions, traditions, and lore surrounding herbal medicine and magic. While there are many herbal books which include some of this type of content while dwelling primarily on medicine, foraging, gardening, or just repackaging information, “Herbal Magick” really focuses on easily-digestible tidbits of lore. Some of this lore is quite well-known to herbalists and students of the craft — like the lore of the mandrake’s shriek — but there are also some more obscure…
