Just re-read "Embracing the Moon". I've owned it for years and read it before, but I am currently re-reading all my books.

Over all it is an ok starter book. It does deal with Shadow work and so is a bit darker at times then your normal "everything is rainbows" beginner book, but I think that we all need to be aware of deeper mysteries.

Not to mention that while not everyone may be into spell work and banishings etc, its good to have an idea of how they work.
I received this book from a friend back in like third grade. Neither she nor I considered ourselves to be Pagans and we didn't want to be Witches either, whatever that meant to us back then. We just enjoyed fantastical things, but we were kids and what kid doesn't? It was such a strange gift and my mother made it even stranger by taking it away promptly and hiding it. Why? Because the author speaks of "sex magick" and using your own blood in rituals. Yeah, not exactly something you'd want your y ...more
This is a great book if you are into Wicca and Paganism~ the author's very out of the box and not just your typical "by the books" practitioner of Magick. You can also tell she has been practicing for a good long time. Her writing style is super enjoyable,with lots of stories about her experience. She also incorporates lots of stuff for each of the elements which helps you get to know each one better. Also included are spells, charms, and rituals are included as well as recipes for food, powders ...more

This is the second book i have read from Yasmine Galenorn. The first that caught my attention was Totem Magic: Dance of the Shapeshifter. An excellent read if you were intrigued by the section in this book "Shapeshifting and animal magick". Totem Magic was published several years later and goes much more into detail with Animal spirits, guides and energies. Galenorn recommends this book herself in Totem Magic to help clarify and enhance the productivity of the craft by teaching fundamental basic ...more

This is a good one for beginners, and though I don't consider myself a "beginner", it is not beneath me to read books of this kind, as everyone seems to have a different perspective of how to approach these topics. Most of what I read in this book are things I already knew, so I will likely pass this one along to someone who will get better use from it. Lots of basic information, but it should be stated that this is not a book about Wicca. The author makes it very clear she is "Witch, not Wiccan ...more
This book was not quite what I had expected. Reading the title I had expected something focused on esbats or moon worship. She covers many topics never going into too much depth. She seems very practice heavy not explaining theory very well.
The book goes over some of her personal experiences and does have a few good recipes (for oils, spells, etc.) and a few details I had not thought of or heard about. But overall, nothing earth-shattering or mind-blowing.

Recommends it for: anyone interested in magic and Wicca
I'm working on a fiction novel about a witch and this book was well written and had a lot of useful information.
Very good, basic information, chants, and recipes.
