Wiccan Books for the New Witch
A number of great books have been written on witchcraft. You can find some of them listed below.
However, we also recommend that you take a look at the mass following of magic and spells across any of the major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You will quickly find that there are many authority names and social media influencers that are coming out with some really great content of their own.
It’s one thing to come out with a book, but it’s another to embrace the world of social media and making your content accessible to everyone everywhere. With all of that being said, be sure to check out the recommended books below.
WICCA. COMPLETE BOOK OF WITCHES by RAYMOND BUCKLAND
There is nothing perverse or destructive about the revival of the Wicca religion. On the contrary, the rituals of this ancient religion are beautiful and serve as an excellent aid to transforming the future. The practice of Wicca tends to raise the consciousness of the human being and is a strong defender of the rights of equality, of feminism, of ecology and the safeguarding of our planet. This book contains fifteen basic lessons that clearly describe the history and philosophy of White Magic, particularly in relation to its deities and beliefs, the magical tools and their clothing, the congregations and rituals, the meaning of the sabats (covens), meditation, divination, herbalism and the various methods of healing.
With a very accessible language, Raymond Buckland also presents the ceremonial rituals of birth, marriage, separation and death, and explains how to get initiated into this religion, either in a group or as a ‘solitary’ (individual). The work also includes a precise classification of the different branches of Wicca practice: Gardnerian, Alexandria, Celtic, Australian, Wicca Nova, Pecti-Wita of Scotland and others.
