The Essential Golden Dawn

For such a small book, it’s jam packed with information that is necessary for you to decide whether or not you really want in on the Golden Dawn. After reading this, I found that maybe, just maybe, ceremonial “high” magic isn’t right for me. I’ve read four books on high magic, and all of them… Continue reading The Essential Golden Dawn

The Magic of Tarot

by Sasha Graham. I wrote my review of this book in Goodreads before reading the other reviews. I gave it 4 stars and did not finish it because the last third was card meanings. I also found myself skimming through the first half of the book. It was so choppy, meant for someone to work… Continue reading The Magic of Tarot

Holistic Tarot Review (part 1)

by Benebell Wen. When I first saw this book, I was like, “$21.00 for the Kindle edition? Screw that.” Little did I know that the entire book is over 800 pages! I bought the physical copy and was indeed surprised at the size of it. The size didn’t scare me. I read through the first… Continue reading Holistic Tarot Review (part 1)

Llewellyn Sale!

Some books were 50% off, so, of course, I jumped at the chance to get them. I compared them to the Kindle books, and purchased the physical books if they were cheaper. Crystal Talismans which consisted of four crystals for Love, Success, Fortune or Well-being. I chose Fortune. Adventurine, Hemataite, White Moonstone and Clear Quartz… Continue reading Llewellyn Sale!

Llewellyn’s books

Read so far a book on Dreams, which was worthless. Just finished Complete Book of Divination, which is a really good overview of different kinds of divination, from Augury to Tarot. Four stars on Goodreads. Complete Book of Ceremonial Magick is next in the pile.

Llewellyn books

The great thing about Llewellyn is that they publish so much in the magickal realm that it’s easy to get lost among the really good books and the crappy books. I went on a buying spree and bought a bunch of Llewellyn’s complete book of ____ series. The first one I perused is about dreaming.… Continue reading Llewellyn books

Golden Lenormand Oracle

When I did RI Comicon a few years ago, I read Tarot cards for $10. I made more money doing that than selling books. (I’ll never forget the disgusted look another author gave me when I told him that.) Mind you, I had only one book out at the time. Two years later, I moved… Continue reading Golden Lenormand Oracle

Motherpeace Tarot

Not sure what to think of this deck yet. I like it for its diversity, and to see women in such powerful positions (mostly nude. Why are they always nude? Is it a pride thing?). I bought this deck years back (I think, though it was black and white). I didn’t care much for it,… Continue reading Motherpeace Tarot

The Woman Magician

What a stupid fucking book. I wanted rituals for women–yeah, I got that. After reading through bullshit of “What constitutes woman?” and “How do you handle the patriarchy of the different Orders?” I’m like, for fuck’s sake. I didn’t want a feminist treatise. But I got one, just the same. By the time the author… Continue reading The Woman Magician
