Each month you are affected by the power of the Moon. Your energy levels wax and wane just as the Moon does, sometimes urging you to start new projects and other times to sit back and plan. But if you don't know the Moon's effect on you, you may be fighting it instead of using it to your advantage. Whether the moon is making you feel adventurous and productive or tense and ...more

This book is a very strange mix of rituals, spells, myths, etc. and recipes and crafts. Like there's a spell to make warts disappear and then next there's a recipe for deviled egg sandwich spread. This might not be the best way to organize a book, but I was totally feeling it anyway. Inspired by the "German Witch Potpourri," I'm probably going to stuff some plants in a jar and call it potpourri. Also, "Russian Tea" is basically hot water, a cinnamon stick, and vodka. Isn't that great? Guess what ...more
Gimmicky is the best word I can come up with here. It's fun for beginners, but honestly, why waste your time with something that's not as valuable as many other authors out there? I'd say borrow this from the library and read it if you can... don't buy it and spend your money on something else.

I think I need to make the Dragon Smoke Bath Salts - for prosperity. This book has quite a few recipes and craft ideas, ie Tibetan cologne.

Ancient religions prior to the advent of male dominated solar religions based their calendar and lifestyle on the moon. It made sense the moon has a profound affect on our lives. Observe human behavior during a full moon. Crime rates tend to go up people seem to have more energy to use either from positive or negative purposes. People tend to get more emotional during full moons. Tides also rise with the moon phases and our bodies are 75% water.

That being said it is obvious that ancient Goddess

First off, in answer to your question, the reason I read this is principally for research for a book project of mine (though in that process, I've developed an interest in the subject in general, as I've a number of friends who are of earth religions). This book was a bit of a disappointment, since it didn't tell me much that I hadn't already seen elsewhere. In general, I've found that books whose title includes a "K" at the end of Magic tend to be on the side of ritualism and lighter on spiritu ...more

I loved reading this book. The monthly information is wonderful and very detailed.

The monthly sections, which give information on each month of the year, was very interesting. They were full of facts about each month, including corresponding: colors, flowers, scents and much more.

The lore included in the book about each month made for very good reading. And the recipes, spells, rituals, & crafts were interesting as well, and some of the crafts sounded fun to try.

I found the whole book to be

Although I'm really not into spells and rituals and paganism, I liked the book for it's recipes and insights into the uses of various herbs and essential oils. It was a nice book during a four hour flight.
i just retrieved this from my parent's bookshelf. this was a well-loved and used book that i got recipes from, cast spells from, etc. it describes each lunar month of the year (corresponding with the Gregorian calendar to make it easier...) and it has tons of myths and stories, recipes, crafts, spells, and info about each month. i'm excited about reading it again.

I bought this when I was about 13 and going through my 'witch' phase. It had some fascinating stuff in it, but mostly it just helped me realized that I am, indeed, Christian, though I do believe there are preturnatural forces in the natural world that are beyond human understanding. For that, I highly recommend this book.

This book has three rituals, many craft projects and much more. The moon is important to many pagan religions. Changes in the moon helps us know when to cast certain spells and do certain rituals.
Deities of the moon are usually goddesses. To learn more about the goddess go on
Useful for each phase of the moon for goddess/god lore. Lots of historical info of different cultures who celebrate something related to the moon at that time. Overall a decent reference book. Not my favorite, but it's decent.

This is a book that I regularly come back to. It has some wonderful crafts and recipes and is a joy to read.
