You know I originally had a very long angry review posted for this book however I deleted it I tossed and turned at night because of this book I woke up in a cold sweat my nightmares filled with images of Killstar esue Tumblr witches sporting Ray Bans and purple lipstick and shirts that say Fuck the patriarchy I took some chill pills waited a few weeks and have since decided to re write my reviewI don't like this book Why1 It's deceptive If your book is called Basic Witches How to Summon Success Banish Drama and Raise Hell with Your Coven then yes I'm than likely going to assume that your book's main focus is on witchcraft It is notThis is a self help book conjured up from the deepest depths of Tumblr hell that uses witchcraft as its main marketing point As both a Millennial and a witch myself I have a deep long standing problem with spiritual books with deceptive claims and covers 2 Simply Ineffective Magic There's two types of magic magic that works and magic that doesn't and this is the latter The spells if you can call them that are what I like to call Dandelion Magic Dandelions have an extremely long taproot that has the amazing ability to regenerate If the smallest piece of this root is left behind an entire new dandelion will sprout back therefore the entire root must be removedIssues such as self esteem self confidence and body image are deep seated issues that reuire an aggressive approach to heal If you started hating your body at age 7 then its going to take a hell of a lot than a simple 6 word spell to fully heal A combination of therapy magic journalism mindfulness and ritual will than likely be your best bet3 Edgy The entire tone of this book smacks of edge To the author witchcraft isn't about power or manifesting one's will on Earth or forming relationships with spirits or any of that complicated sht Its about being sticking it to the MAN Its about like not giving into to mainstream media and culture You don't actually have to learn or practice anything or read books about witchcraft and the occult All you have to have is a middle finger and no fucks to give and you too can be a witch4 Lazy If you're going to using the tarot in a spell maybe you should at least have a basic understanding of the tarot as a system Or maybe go into descriptive detail about what each card means as opposed to a few hastily scribbled words If you're going to include information on reading tea leaves maybe you should devote than a paragraph to explaining it Seriously the information on reading tea leaves was literally a paragraph long but explaining it would have meant less room for the pretty pictures so its fine 5 Trendy I am so adverse to spirituality becoming yet another Instagram and Tumblr trend for several reasons The first is because it causes that person harm The dummy who reads a Tumblr post on Lilith and tries to summon her a s some sort of eDDDDGY feminist goddess is putting herself in danger by approaching a powerful spirit in a completely rude and disrespectful manner I dislike this book

THIS BOOK IS NOT FORWITCHESIt is definitely for those not well versed in anything wiccan or occult It is a self help book for the millenialgen z er that needs a little spirituality in their life It goes over ways to empower yourself through day to day life and with little charms While it is inclusive of non binary and masculine genders you can tell that this book was written by two women Most anecdotes and problems are femme centered which I don't think is a bad thing just something to be aware of I loved it I have just started tarot and I was curious to get a spell book so I picked this up I kind of consider it a palatable entry to witchy things for me I have heard that some practicing witches don't find it cute and funny but offensive And to that I say that this is a starting point for people like me who are curious but overwhelmed by the amount of books and material on the internet about witchesOne of my favorite parts were the uick history lessons interspersed within the chapters They seemed relatively well researched and focused on the Western European definition of witches so it didn't feel appropriative or problematic Overall fun uick self help read for the magically inclined


Basic WitchesD pop culture sidebars that situate the new witchcraft trend within a broader context With humor heart and a hip modern sensibility journalists Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman dispense witchy wisdom for the curious the cynical and anyone who could use a magical boost to get through the day This ain’t your grandma’s grimoi. Could not finishAbout 60 pages in I was asking myself “is this offensive or just stupid”Everything about the book description is misleading and the cuddly bunny authors thought it best to lead into a discussion about reclaiming your feminine power with I kid you not a lipstick spell Wtf is this I am a makeup junkie and no I still have no urge to perform a lipstick spell This is dabbling plain and simple and the authors were right to reference The Craft in this book as a way to discuss the ‘trendiness’ of modern day witchcraft I’m sorry but I don’t know any practicing witch who would say that The Craft was a positive influence It taught magical irresponsibility by making it look fun and cool to fuck with peopleYeah No Like The Craft this is not going to teach you anything Not even solid makeup tips
