Magickal Inspiration from the World’s Great Traditions

Join Melanie Marquis as she explores an amazing assortment of magickal techniques gathered from the annals of world folk magick. Discover traditional practices from Zulu herbal medicine to the enchanted ovens of Polynesia; from Germanic fertility dances to the love potions of Papua New Guinea; from Greco-Roman bloodletting ceremonies to Malay word charms . . . and many more!

Providing instructions on how to unite classic beliefs with modern practice, A Witch’s World of Magick uncovers the universal principles that underlie decoy magick, curse breaking, potion making, number magick, and an abundance of other techniques. With these new perspectives on the common threads that weave throughout our magickal world, you will achieve higher levels of insight and success.

“An invaluable resource for gleaning the many modes of magic that will be useful to the new and experienced witch alike.”—Orion Foxwood, author of The Tree of Enchantment

As humans, it's hard to not drown in the chaos that builds from accumulated stresses big and small. It's hard to not feel overwhelmed when faced with a million tasks, responsibilities, and expectations that don't exactly call to our highest potentials or truest desires. But how can a person make magick when feeling so mediocre? Melanie Marquis, co-author of the new Witchy Mama, provides tips to help us remain magickal in the midst of chaos.

As one of three annual harvest celebrations marked in the Witch's sabbat cycle, Lughnasadh doesn't seem like much of a stand-out. Unless you're tending crops on a daily basis, you're not very likely to be especially filled with excitement over the thought of the first harvest, as opposed to the second or third harvest.

Witches frustrated by mediocre results need not give up and toss their wands out with the trash. Using magical glyphs in new ways will give spellwork the boost it needs to succeed.

The mighty dead, divination, and portals to other worlds… there are so many places to celebrate Samhain in the northeastern United States… The cooler weather, the colorful leaves, and, as the memes say, "Pumpkin everything!"
