Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Melissa Cynova, author of Kitchen Table Tarot, Tarot Elements, and the new Kitchen Table Magic.

“I’ve always wanted to study magic, but I never had time to sign up for classes or go through training,” said my friend, Karen, causing me to nearly spit out my gum.

Magic just IS, I insisted. It just is. It’s in you. You don’t need anyone to tell you anything, really. YOU don’t need a wand; you can just point your finger.

Honestly, you can just toss some salt at some things.

This is why I wrote Kitchen Table Magic. To bring a comfort and an ease to learning magic. There aren’t any “have to’s” and there is no religion or god attached. Just you, your intuition, and your gift. It’s time to put down the idea of gate-keeping and that there is a certain way to learn magic. It’s just you and your needs and your intention. Everything else is gravy.

This book is for the little witches out there who are certain they can make things happen. It’s for the older witches who have felt dismissed or pushed aside by structures and ideals that don’t appeal to them. It’s for the weirdos and the outcasts, the nerds and the bookworms. This is magic that you can tap into right away, and take with you wherever you go.
