The days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing colour and falling which means Samhain/Halloween is fast approaching. It is a time for pumpkins, candy for Trick or Treat, ghoulish delicacies as well as vampires, ghosts and of course, witches. This book is loosely connected to October’s theme but it steps away from fiction into non-fiction.
I have always been intrigued in wicca, witchcraft and magic so I am grateful to NetGalley and Llewellyn Publications for the chance to read the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
The Witching Hour: Spells, Powders, Formulas, and Witchy Techniques That Work
Author Silver RavenWolf
Publisher Llewellyn Publications
The Witching Hour—that moment when every fiber of your beings says, “This is the time to do the magick, the ritual, the enchantment for what I need.” It could be dawn, a misty twilight, or the deepest, darkest inky night. It’s a time when all of your being urges you to get up, get moving, and get working! Confidence that you can easily step from the problem at hand to the success that you desire seething around you. And you know, to the depths of your soul, it is time for magick! The moment of your own power has matured!
This is a book of magic—formulas and techniques for working with herbal blends and powders, techniques for connecting to the ultimate oneness of universe, inspiration for deepening your magical work and seeing your intentions become real changes in the world.
I am new to exploring magick so my knowledge is very basic. At the beginning I felt slightly overwhelmed by the wealth of information. I returned to the book after reading around the subject. This time the experience was different. This book is not one to be rushed, it requires a clear mind and read away from distractions. It requires focus like the Magick it is teaching. Silver RavenWolf provides in-depth information which can not be faulted, with tips about the little things which is perfect for novices like me.
Personally, I think this is a book where a physical copy would work better than an electronic one for its ease of use, tactile nature and formatting. I am looking forward to adding one to my bookshelf.
