My Witchy Bookshelf- Beginning Wicca & Witchcraft Books
Welcome to the newest Inked Grimoire series- My Witchy Bookshelf. These segments feature books found on my personal witchy bookshelf (Morgan- owner of Inked Goddess Creations), that personally resonate with me, that I can honestly recommend to those interested in the subjects. The video series will be split up into subjects, with this first post about Beginning Wicca & Witchcraft Books.
I recently told the story of how I found my spiritual path in the post, Finding Myself in the Darkness. I was a teenager in a small, rural Virginia town in the 90s, and turned to a bookstore to gain the answers I needed.
I started out with Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. It's a great transition book, if you are looking into wicca for the first time. It gives the basics of wicca and witchcraft, and teaches you how to practice your faith without a coven or group.
From there, I read To Ride a Silver Broomstick by Silver RavenWolf. This is the first book in a series that includes To Stir a Magick Cauldron and To Light a Sacred Flame. Silver RavenWolf is personally one of my favorite authors, and I love the thoroughness and voice of her books. These books, from start to finish, cover the basics of witchcraft and how to practice the magick deep inside of you.
Teen Witch by Silver RavenWolf is also another book I recommend for those starting out. I purchased a copy of this book for my daughter, but ended up reading it myself. Great overview of witchcraft with some cute beginner spells added in.
The last book in this series that I recommend is Grimoire for the Green Witch by Ann Moura. This book is overflowing with amazing information, spells, rituals and more. I use this book constantly for quick references, and highly recommend it as an addition to anyone's witchy bookshelf.
These are the books I personally recommend for those starting out or wanting more information on wicca or witchcraft. I do mention in the video (which is the full informational segment for this series) that I haven't purchased a beginning book in about 10 or 15 years, so this list is nowhere near an 'ultimate' list or anything. These are just books I personally recommend, that have helped me on my path over the last 20 years!
