Celebrate the changing of the seasons and the beauty and power of the Moon, the Stars, and the Sun. Written by a Witch who has spent many years teaching the Craft of Wicca to newcomers, this introductory guide presents everything you need to know for successful witchery, including:

An essential set of instructions and guidelines for beginning the practice of the Ancient arts An overview of Wiccan beliefs, laws, rules, and principles Directions for creating and using basic tools of the Craft―athame, wand, cup, pentacle, cauldron, broom, black mirror, and meditation Easy-to-follow instructions for altar setup, circle-casting, building power, Deity invocation, and more An assortment of miscellaneous spells, chants, and invocations for a variety of purposes

Walk the path of the Witch-live in harmony and balance, and discover the sacred within the natural world with The Craft.

The first thing Dorothy Morrison hopes to establish in The Craft is what the Craft is not. “It has nothing to do with canned magic, or flying through the air, or snapping lightning from your fingertips,” she explains. And no matter how practiced you are, Morrison assures readers it won’t give you the power to “turn your enemies into toads so you can set them on the highway.” Explaining what the Craft actually is takes more time and thought–both of which Morrison offers in her typically warm, humorous, and concise style throughout this all-inclusive handbook.

Wiccans, who are the main practitioners of the Craft, have one overriding commandment, according to Morrison: if it harms no one, do what you will. It is a reminder that every action, thought, and spell has a ripple effect, so be sure that all your work is for the good. This responsible attitude seeps into every page of this practical magic handbook. Expect a highly detailed account of spells, wand skills, sample blessings, altar setups, invocations, and examples of how to use a cup, pentacle, cauldron, and athame (a double-edge knife that should never be used to draw blood). Morrison closes with a Craft calendar, listing celebrations and rituals for every month and season of the year. –Gail Hudson

Makes erroneous “factual” historical and scientific claims, does’t care that it’s wrong. I purchased this book because it was recommended, and had overwhelmingly positive reviews. I was however, sorely disappointed. There are some nice things about this book, and it could make an almost halfway decent reference book but some of the things it says/claims really rub me the wrong way to the point where it’s unforgivable. I’ll list some of those below:-It’s feels so fluffy to me. It’s overly chipper, to the point of being cheesy. It is way too positive and lovey, to the point of…

The Craft – A Witch’s Book of Shadows I’ve been looking for a book like this for awhile. I have found some nice ones but this one covers more than I expected and everything that I have wanted. Tools of the craft are explained, exercises to do weekly with those tools and explanations of the Sabbats. Different appendixes that go over “Deity Associations” and “The Magical Uses of Herbs, Plants, Flowers, and Trees” just to name two of them. This is a one stop shop, you can get what you need to learn about “The…

A good first book for Wicca This was the first book on witchcraft I read. I’ve since read several more but this book was by far the easiest, lightest read and perfectly suits being a good first book to Wicca. And yes, it’s definitely about Wicca, not general witchcraft, so be prepared for sugar-coated ritual and philosophies not shared by general witches. Still, I do go back and refer to this book regularly as it is a good, clear reference for things like tools/dates/etc.
