Are you on a spiritual path? These paths are as unique as the people who walk them.
Part grimoire, part handbook, and part spiritual travelogue, A Mystical Practical Guide to Magic is a personal and practical compendium for creating your own magical life.
The author writes from real life experience, as practitioner and teacher, sharing field notes and anecdotes from the magical practices that inspired her, and so many others, over the decades: astrology, tarot, witchery, writing, meditation, improving intuition, mediumship, and more, including her own system for emotional regeneration, Moon Pluto Magic. The book has stories to tell and homework to give and city streets to take you down.
The topics and practices traversed herein will help you, too, if you let them. They will help you find you as the book fundamentally explores this question: how to make life more meaningful, each day. Astrology can help. Tarot can help. Magic will definitely help! And so will your Spirit Guides.
Are you a witch? Should you learn about your birth chart? Why keep a journal? How can Tarot make you psychic? Why meditate when you can't sit still? Can your spiritual life keep you grounded during hard times? These questions and many more are offered, as well as simple exercises and ideas, including spells and tarot spreads and recommended reading, that you can use to chart your own unique spiritual quest.
