Yay! A review! Finally, and a 5 Triquetra one at that!
Today I am bringing you Every Day Magic published by Moon Books.
To the cover! This cover is beautiful and perfectly describes my type of Paganism and magic. It is a collection of natural little objects in a circle, which is just my style of things to gather for a good ritual or spell!
Now, I'll admit that I haven't tried EVERY daily prompt - I didn't want to wait a whole year to write this review ;) However, from the prompts that I have tried I can comfortably say that this is going to be a book I refer to over and over.
I adore the community feel (the reason why measurements and spelling varies so much) from having many different contributors and I love having everyone's different perspectives.
This book offers a wide variety of ideas based on many different paths that many folks wouldn't normally see. As the description of the books states there are journaling prompts, poems, recipes and crafts along with rituals. Let me tell you they put a LOT into 152 pages.
I adore how each daily prompt is something easy to do. I'll admit that the poetry and journaling/questions were easiest for me since (like everyone) things get a little busy over here especially around the holidays.
So, if you're looking for a book that will help you do a little something every day for your spirituality that has a deliciously magical feel to it this is the one for you! I mean, the opening prompt just makes you feel like a witch!
1. New Year’s Resolutions:
Resolve to enrich your spirit each and every day in many and varied ways. Aim to watch the way the seasons change; meditate a little; whisper prayers; light candles
for peace, hope, joy, love and good health; dance and sing; learn about the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient world and celebrate the forces of nature, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon and the stars. Breathe in love and breathe out love. Be open to inspiration
It seems like this is advice that we can use not only during the first of the year, but all year round. Let's all take a moment to be blessed. I wanted to take a quick moment to state that I was given a free ARC of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Nimue!
