Embracing the Moon: A Witch's Guide to Rituals, Spellcrafts and Shadow Work ~ Usually ships in 2-3 days
by Yasmine Galenorn / Paperback / Published 1998

From traditional notions such as the idea that a mirror facing a door is a magical portal to contemporary ideas like the construction of a magical collage from magazine clippings, Galenorn successfully combines the old with the new in this accessible guide to witchcraft. Emphasis on witchcraft, because from the start, Galenorn firmly states that she is a witch, not Wiccan, and while she has nothing against Wicca, she strongly feels the two are not the same. While this viewpoint may consternate some readers, she has a point. Compared to the methods of most covens, her work is much less formal, which many beginners or solitary practitioners will find attractive and which also makes this a good book to read if you find yourself in a magical rut.

by Valerie Worth / Paperback / Published 1998

The posthumous publication of "The Crones Book of Charms & Spells" gives us one more chance to experience the melodic rhythm of Worth's prose and to feel the emotion stamped in her poetic inscriptions and incantations. Evoking images of the wise old woman in an isolated cottage, these carefully crafted potions, spells, charms, and amulets reflect the importance she places on taking delight in the process of one's work, as well as in the final product. "The Crone's Book of Charms & Spells" makes for entertaining reading, and with a little common sense and caution, will make a powerful addition to your own library.

Magical Needlework: 35 Original Projects & Patterns ~ Usually ships in 24 hours
by Dorothy Morrison / Paperback / Published 1998

In this lighthearted look at the magical potential of a craft that many might overlook, Morrison's fascination with puns ("what's sew magical") and rhymes ("counted cross- stitches in a row make the magic really grow") not only add a touch of her good humor, but help with understanding the importance of rhyme when it comes to holding power. The 35 projects Morrison presents cover all kinds of needlecraft including: sewing, quilting, embroidery, crochet, knitting, and even the ancient arts of dyeing, spinning, and weaving. If you've never threaded a needle, this book is the perfect primer covering all the basics, both mundane and magical. If you're a pro with the thread, this book will give you a new appreciation of the magic in your own hands.

Shapeshifter Tarot ~ Usually ships in 2-3 days
by D. J. Conway and Sirona Knight, illustrated by Lisa Hunt / Calendar / Published 1998

A pleasure to behold! Hunt has imbued this deck with a tangible energy. Her images of humans discovering the power of the animal world evoke emotions ranging the spectrum from loneliness to joy. The expressiveness of the illustrations makes this one of the most powerful decks commercially available, well suited for use in spellcraft. Conway and Knight pool their considerable talents in the companion book, giving their lucid and vivid interpretations of the cards' literal and figurative meanings. The cards and book work together as a synergistic whole, a testament to the prowess of the authors and the illustrator. The "Shapeshifter Tarot" is analogous to the traditional tarot, save for the addition of three cards, "The Double," "The Journey," and "The Dreamer," which reflect the Celtic shamanic tradition on which this deck is based, a tradition that will teach you to access and direct animal energies to fulfill your own needs and at the same time bridge the chasm between humankind and nature.

Pagan Rites of Passage ~ Usually ships in 24 hours
by Pauline Campanelli / Paperback / Published 1998

Being brought up in a time when old ways are often forgotten, 20th-century pagans can find themselves at a loss for traditional ceremonies to celebrate the times in life that should be marked with great care. "Pagan Rites of Passage" fills this void with a collection of celebratory rites from varying cultures as far apart in time and space as the ancient Egyptians are from the Bulgarians. The breadth of coverage makes this a suitable book for most any tradition, group, or solitary practitioner. The rites discussed commemorate important moments on the wheel of life from birth through death and include ceremonies for important events such as initiation into a coven or the handfasting of two people embarking on a life together. Pagans who want to proudly mark their lives in accordance with their ancient heritages will find that "Pagan Rites of Passage" furnishes the vital traditional framework on which to construct the perfect celebration.
