The difference between the witch and the layperson is that witches already know they are powerful. The layperson may only suspect.
Edgy and often deeply personal, the twenty-one essays collected here come from a wide variety of writers. Some identify as witches, others identify as writers, musicians, game developers, or artists. What they have in common is that they've created personal rituals to summon their own power in a world that would prefer them powerless. Here, they share the rituals they use to resist self-doubt, grief, and depression in the face of sexism, slut shaming, racism, patriarchy, and other systems of oppression.

Drawing on the knowledge found in traditional folklore, Lori Reid invites readers to connect with the Moon in order to invite happiness and prosperity into their lives. When do people prefer to make love? When do incidences of violence soar? When in the month are births more common? The answer to all these questions is: around the time of the full Moon. Moon Power investigates this phenomenon, from early beliefs to the present day, and parallels ancient wisdom with the latest scientific findings—which now prove that many of the beliefs held by our ancestors have a strong basis in fact. The Moon’s mystique has touched our souls and inspired our spirituality for millennia. And it is because of this continuing romance with the Moon that generations have interwoven a tapestry of folklore and astrology rich in Moon myth and symbolism that still underpin many modern customs. Lori Reid explores everything from lunar rhythms, tides, and eclipses, to the night goddess, moon lore, and fertility. Her combination of practical tips and expert commentary will help you bring a little Moon magic into all aspects of your everyday life—from your bedroom to the boardroom—and special phase charts let you plot the Moon’s exact course on your own key dates.

Water Witchcraft: Magic and Lore from the Celtic Tradition
An accessible in-depth guide to Celtic water lore, including spells, rituals, water spirits, and merfolk
Let Annwyn Avalon, a practicing water witch herself, take you into the world of water magic. The water magic and lore in this book focuses on the Celtic tradition, but draws on other water magic traditions as well, and features rainwater, as well as lakes, rivers, oceans, canals, swamps, and other watery locations, together with the folk and magical customs that have been and are still practiced at these places. The book teaches the reader how to set up a water altar at home, how to connect with water spirits, and how to gather or create water witch tools. Readers are encouraged to visit local water sites but will also find an abundance of material to perform at home. Included are practical examples, visualizations, and exercises so any reader can start to take up spell work and establish their spiritual connection to water.
Reclaims witchcraft, putting it into the hands of those who need it most: queer and marginalized people and their fiercest allies.
Witchcraft has always belonged to the outsiders and outcasts in society, yet so much of the practice enforces and adheres to the same hierarchy we face in the world at large--a hierarchy that isolates and hurts those living beyond society's binaries and boundaries. While there are books that address magick for resistance and queer myth, until now there has not been one that specifically addresses the practice of queer magick from an LGBTQ+ standpoint.
Queering the Craft combines queer aesthetic and culture (like DIY culture and an emphasis on chosen family over formal covens) with pagan and metaphysical spiritual practice in a way that is commonplace but has not been written about until now. This book covers the personal, the collective, and the political, and how deeply intertwined all three are in a magickal practice for those who are LGBTQ+.
In this introduction to witchcraft, Snow presents why/how each concept is important to a queer craft, or how to approach it from a queer mindset. For example, conventional prayer, words, and symbols have always been problematic in a queer universe: How to make them work and still be true to yourself? The bulk of the book is about learning the craft. The latter portion is a grimoire of spells.
While accessible to beginning witches, Queering the Craft provides new and inspiring information for longtime practitioners interested in a pure and personal approach that avoids the baggage of history and stereotype.
