Jul 01, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This was a first for me! Having never read a book on Wicca I was pleasantly surprised by the scope and accessibility of this book. There are many exercises for the novice to enact to connect with themselves spiritually. To me, the gist of this book, while certainly providing "spells" and chants, was learning how to connect with one's self and realizing your full magic potential. I am definitely going to try some of the more simple meditations, if I learn I have some sort of powers than that will ...more

This is a book for those who feel a calling to magick and who are looking to enhance or learn about spell casting. I found myself taking notes as I read through this book and while it is a Witchy Techniques book it also has some very practical advice. This is one I would love to own and have on my shelf. It comes out October 8th

Ah, my old friend Silver RavenWolf. We meet again. My enjoyment of this particular author is hit and miss: some of her books I absolutely adore and take front and center stage on my shelf. Others, not so much. This one fell pretty safely into the middle for me.

The organization of this book is really, really disjointed. It's a bit all over the place, and makes it hard to read. The tone comes off as a bit one true way: that this is how you should do it, because I say so.

That said, there's a lot

Looking for simple spells, charms, chants, and powders? This book is for you! Not only does it contain these things and more but it also has ways to ground yourself, to cleanse yourself from negative energy. I love how to shows you to prepare for magic. The things to cleanse your mind and energy for ritual. There is quite a things that I can't wait to try after reading this book. So many herbal blends and powders and even a few meditations. I'm glad Silver RavenWolf has decided to write again. ...more

I really enjoyed this. It was a bit out of my comfort zone in terms of knowledge so a lot to take in personally but I think if this is an area of interest it is well worth the read.

Lots of illustrations to go with the recipes and all about owning and developing your own power. It's in depth and tells you everything you may need to buy.

Really enjoyable and great to try and learn something new to me.

A compendium for the modern day witch which includes spells, powders, and formulas for a variety of needs, wants, and wishes. What is unique about this book compared to other grimoires is that it contains plenty of information on how to prepare yourself for magic. This is the most important part of spellwork which Ms. RavenWolf makes obvious in this book as she spends a great deal of time providing tips on how to do this. Many tips on how to energetically prepare yourself are included such as ...more

I've never read one of Silver RavenWolf's books before, although she is a well-known new age writer. I really didn't know what to expect when reading "The Witching Hour", but I approached it with an open mind and I am glad I did.

First I enjoyed the little illustrations in the book. Sometimes just look at a pretty book can make your day better, well at least mine anyway. This book is about conjuring your own power, your own "Witching Hour" and using it as see fit. The introduction has some

It has been 9 years since Silver RavenWolf's last book "Hedge Witch" and i am very happy to say that she has returned on top form! This book is a great example of a writer who has put everything they preach into practice to make sure that what they are giving to the reader has truly been tried and tested. This book contains many recipes for spells and lots of useful information to make your magick work better for you. Silver's books are always a pleasure to read due to her very personal writing ...more

Silver Ravenwolf is back and better than ever! Her newest book, The Witching Hour: Spells, Powders, Formulas and Techniques That Work is hands down the best book she’s written in my opinion. When her first books were originally published, they were revolutionary for the world of witchcraft. She alone, set the bar and standard for witchcraft books for at least a decade. I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of Silver Ravenwolf’s published works, as she was my introduction into the world of witchcraft as ...more

Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for a review!

This book took me forever to read, and I ended up skimming most of it. There is so much information, that it's hard to take it all in, in one read but I'll go back and have a decent read of sections later when I need/want the information.

I love the fact that she uses citations and her ideas about combining magick and science!

The biggest fault I found with this book is that it was so unorganised. I felt like there was no

I love her books and always get a LOT of useful info from them. But this one I had trouble with. A lot of it was confusing to me, perhaps because I am a solitary pagan and have never had a mentor in the craft, whereas Silver is an experienced witch with many years of practice. I’m no good at calculus either, and some of the formulas in this book reminded me of being in college and not understanding my professor either. But the book had useful info and rituals, and I’m glad I stuck with it and ...more

I have a lot of complex feelings about this book. On the one hand, I am sooo grateful it isn't just another intro to Wicca book, on the other, it really isn't much more than a cleverly put together and published Grimoire. The one thing that does set this book apart from other Grimoires I have read is how heavily influenced it is by the Braucherei system. This makes a lot of sense since the author is Pennsylvanian themself, and I really enjoyed getting to know this system a bit better.

Thanks to NetGalley and Llewellyn for allowing me to read this book in advance. A nice overview of magic in the pagan world for someone of any practicing level, from beginner to advanced. Nearly every kind of topic is covered here with information and ritual suggestions. There are recipes for various items and information on all the different types of tools a practitioner may use. Many correspondences are explained as well throughout the book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Llewellyn for allowing me to read the ARC. This book offers quite a bit of information and the preparation for spellwork was a nice touch. Sometimes I did feel like I was getting bounced around a bit like there was so much info to impart that it felt like "this is important, but wait! this is too". I enjoyed the herb mix section the most.

If you are after simple spells or are starting your witchcraft journey this book is helpful. Although I really struggled with this book, it seemed really unorganised and muddled, it did have some really helpful ideas and information.

Thanks to netgalley for letting me read this.

This book is a work of art!

I'm a big fan of Silver Ravenwolf and this is one of my newest books of hers. Its not as crafty for the spells like she was in the Silvers Spells For series but quickly produces a small spell and ingredients essential.

Try to pay attention to the titles she is using. I was upset because I ran into spellwork being a part of a technique all because I failed to notice "Release Before a Working" as an introduction in the book. I went in looking to relax by performing the

Author does not disappoint in delivering a magickal book worth reading. It not only gives great information on doing magick but takes time to give Teachings on the person doing the magick. Conditions don't just have to be right but the person doing it has to be in the right mind set.
