Embracing the Moon

One of my favourite books is Embracing the Moon by Yasmine Galenorn – catch it while you can though as her website says it’s going out of print – eek!!

It is described on the cover as “A witch’s guide to ritual spellcraft and shadow work” and contains chapters on:

Faerie magic
Hex work
Goddess rituals
Earth healing rituals
Elements & Deities
Magical tools
Prosperity & abundance spells
Recipes for oils & powders
Love & beauty magic
Household magic
God rituals
Shapeshifting & animal magic
Candle & herb magic
Magical life mapping
Protection & healing spells
Rune charts and symbols

Pretty inclusive really LOL!

It’s all written in an easy to read and understand way, you can read from cover to cover or just dip in and out for reference (although I encourage you to read it from cover to cover as it is extremely good!).

Yasmine Galenorn has an impressive book catalogue having written many non fiction books as well as a huge list of fiction including the hugely popular Otherworld series.

Have a look at her website
