Enchantments: A Modern Witch's Guide to Self-Possession
This illustrated guide to altars, candles, tarot, and spell-building will teach you to protect your energy, honor your intuition, raise your vibration—and tap into your inner-witch.
“Enchantments will blow your mind and make you laugh while imparting expert knowledge of witchcraft and why it’s so needed today.”—NATASHA LYONNE
Mya Spalter spent years among candles, herbs, cats, witchy gifts, and spells as an employee at New York City’s oldest occult shop, Enchantments. In this beautifully illustrated book, Spalter sets out to share ways that she’s found to live life magically and maintain spiritual connection with the elements and the universe.
Spalter, a practicing witch herself, explores Wiccan history and offers an approachable compendium of witchcraft and magical knowledge that will equip you to construct your own original spells, build rituals around your intuition, harness the power of crystals, and create spell candles that can be used by witches everywhere. With Enchantments, Spalter creates a supportive and nonjudgmental space for you to become your own unique kind of witch.
Black and queer, Spalter has written this friendly, inclusive guide to witchcraft that will teach anyone how to:
• Build an altar: Find the right tools to model the grace and beauty you aspire to find in your life.
• Cast a self-love spell on yourself: Recognize your own strength and power to inspire happiness and fulfillment.
• Clear out negative energies: Identify and rid yourself of the things holding you back.
• Set meaningful intentions: Create daily practices that positively affect yourself and the world—and witches—around you.
You will learn why certain colors can help raise your vibrations, how to mix herbs for witchcraft, the keys to banishing unfriendly spirits (with cleansing rituals or even a dance party), and invaluable instructions in the timeless arts of astrology, tarot, crystals, and finding a parking spot downtown.
