Top citazioni

  • Open your circle; you can envision the walls of your circle drop-ping or the light fading away as you rejoin the mundane world—if using an outline of yarn or salt, simply make an opening in the circle itself.

  • I suggest keeping a supply of candles in various colors on hand, as well as a few commonly used herbs and stones, so you have what you require if there is a sudden need.

  • So if you look for items that match the goal you have set, you will be adding another layer of intent to the energy you put out into the universe with your words.

  • So make sure that before you sit down to do the spell you have given some thought to how you are going to change your existing spending habits and work to reduce your debt.

  • Call the quarters—face the east, south, west, and north in turn and ask the powers of air, fire, water, and earth to join you in your circle and keep you safe.

Introduction

Why write another spellbook? After all, aren’t there already enough books out there with spells for love, prosperity, and protection? Well, yes, there probably are. And some of them are even quite good; if you look, you’ll find quite a few on my own bookshelves.

But the modern Witch is concerned with a lot more than love and prosperity. Today’s Witch deals with everything from family drama to weight issues to concerns with fertility. You’re not going to find spells for those in your average spellbook—but you will find them here.

This is a spellbook for the everyday Witch: the one who lives their Pagan beliefs all day, every day, 24
