    A Solid Book of Spells, BUT…, July 22, 2017

    This book of spells is as good as any out there on the market. In fact, it is better than most for several reasons.

    First, it is inclusive. For example, there’s actually a spell to help a disabled child reach their fullest potential. Really, nothing has been forgotten in this book. Love, money, careers, health and healing, travel, fertility, protection, justice, peace… you name it, the topic is covered!

    Second, it advocates for a healthy lifestyle. Unlike spells of old (mix this with a little wine and drink) this book actually acknowledges that there are individuals that suffer from illnesses like alcoholism and provides a spell to aid in such healing. In fact, I cannot find a single spell that advocates practicing anything that could cause potential harm in any way, shape or form.

    Third, most of the supplies needed to work each spell are everyday household items. One that quickly jumped out at me was “Bubble Wishes for Urgent Needs.” All it required was some bubbles and edible seeds. With kids who are bubble crazy and trail mix for every day snacks, the spell was a cinch to create (not to mention effective).

    Now for the BUT…

    With all the good I have to write about this book, I still can’t give it five stars. Unfortunately, the author never once (from what I’ve read) shared the importance of opening or closing a circle before casting. For regular practitioners, this is nothing new and easy to overlook in a book since we’ve already established our routines. However, this can be counterproductive (and even potentially dangerous) for those who are new to the craft. If there are ever additional editions of this book, I would highly suggest that the author include a general knowledge chapter in the beginning of the book before providing the spells. Otherwise, I did enjoy reading this book and will surely use it as reference in future rituals.

    OMGoddess! I received my book and I can’t put it down as there are so many spells for the modern Alchemist to enjoy. Wow, I’ll be very busy planting good seeds this Springtime. Prompt delivery and all as a Prime Member. I’m so loving it!!

    This book had great reviews so I just got it but I was more, meh. I like that it has a great variety of spells for all sorts of things but it does not go into enough detail for me. It is set up by what you will need, timing, and the spell. The timing is very general for example it might just say Friday or before bed or whenever the issue arises. Some spells don’t tell you for how long they should be done. No info on proper disposal of left over spell materials once completed. One spell calls for a couple of items then doesn’t even say how to use the items in the spell! I haven’t read through them all yet. However, if you are new to the craft they are simple and basic to get you started. I actually used a few of them as a base to create my own spells which was actually quite helpful. I give it 3 stars for these reasons.
