BRIGID'S LIGHT:
 

Tending the Ancestral Flame 

of the Beloved Celtic Goddess 

by Cairelle Crow  (Editor), Laura Louella (Editor), Judika Illes (Foreword)

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Weiser Books (March 1, 2022)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 256 pages

List Price: $19.95 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Welcome to Brigid’s Light, an anthology dedicated to the Celtic goddess Brigid, edited by Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella. Foreword by Judika Illes. With contributions from Amy Blackthorn, Annwyn Avalon, H. Byron Ballard, Laura Tempest Zakroff, Mary-Grace Fahrun, Raven Morgaine, Courtney Weber and many other leading figures of the Pagan community.


Who is the Goddess Brigid?


Brigid is a shapeshifter.

As a goddess, she takes many forms: as a woman of various ages from girl to crone, as a serpent, as a pillar of fire, and as a woman with flames emanating from her head. Sometimes she appears as a single being, but she may also take the form of a triplicity, or as three sisters. Brigid seems able to take on the spiritual characteristics most needed and most accessible to her devotees.


Brigid's Cross:







A Goddess by Any Other Name . . .

A variety of cultural, religious, and historical influences have created many different spellings of Brigid’s name including Brigit, Brighde, Bridget, Brighid, Brigida, Brijit, Brig, Bride, Ffraid, Breet, Brigdu, Bhrida, Brigitte, Brid, Birgitta, Breeshey, and others. She is also known as Mary of the Gael. All are correct.


Since the revelation of our own mutual devotion to Brigid, we’ve had many conversations about her history, her mysteries, and her presence in our lives. Unsurprisingly, we are quite aligned in our beliefs and practices. Within our own personal gnosis, Brigid is a triad of sisters—the Sacred Three—with hints of Saint Brigid’s legends and miracles threading through the tapestry of our experiences. Brigid is Goddess of the Flame, liminal, born on a threshold at the moment of dawn with fire bursting forth from her head like a halo. She stands with us at the in-between points of our lives, calling us to her so we can learn how to face the moment. She encourages us to look deeply into who we are as women, mothers, friends, and priestesses. She enables us to take stock of where we are and where we are going. By her light, we find our way.

For us, Brigid is a mother goddess embodied in the land and rivers through which she flows, offering her sacred milk as sustenance for our souls. As Lady of the Well, she blesses us with her healing grace throughout our lives, from birth to death. She inspires us and causes our ideas to flow and manifest into beautiful works. She teaches us to speak our truths, and with our words we are empowered. We look to her as a warrior goddess as well—one who stands when it would be easier to sit, who embodies strength and defends the weak and downtrodden, who faces authority and claims the sovereignty that has always been hers.


FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK: 

Stories, spells, rituals, and recipes celebrating the worldwide influence of this beloved Celtic goddess, with contributions from Amy Blackthorn, Laura Tempest Zakroff, Courtney Weber, and many others


This anthology celebrates Brigid, an ancient and mysterious Celtic spirit who ranks among today’s most popular modern goddesses. Venerated in many forms including as a saint and a goddess, Brigid has traveled the globe alongside the Celtic diaspora. Once a goddess with a narrow territory, she is now an internationally beloved presence. While acknowledging her origins, this book also explores Brigid from the perspective of those outside her original Celtic homeland.


Editors Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella have gathered art, poetry, stories, spells, rituals, recipes, and traditions as an homage to the worldwide influence of Brigid’s magic and lore, especially among the descendants of immigrants to the Americas. In compiling these individual works, Cairelle and Laura have given voice to those traveling ancestors by showcasing a rich and beautiful heritage manifested through embodiments of devotion by their descendants, as well as others touched by Brigid.


REVIEWS: 

“This is the book all Brigid devotees and enthusiasts have been dreaming about. Brigid's Light is a bubbling cauldron of wisdom and inspiration, and it absolutely belongs on your shelf. I'm sure I'll be coming back to this one for decades to come.”  -- Tess Whitehurst, author of You Are Magical and Holistic Energy Magic


 “Introducing us to the beloved goddess Brigid in her different guises, Brigid’s Light is a truly special, appropriately illuminating and richly diverse collection of writings from some of the most respected figures in contemporary witchcraft and spirituality. Trusted hands - including those of Judika Illes and Byron Ballard - shine a light on the many facets of this ever-inspirational Celtic deity, guiding us into her realm through the medium of spells, poetry, recipes, crafting, personal reflections, rituals, and much more besides. This sparkling anthology is a gift, both to Brigid, and to the reader. Nurture your inner fire with this book, and tune in to Brigid’s bright energy, not only at Imbolc, but all the year round.”  -- Zoë Howe, author of Witchful Thinking: The Wise Woman’s Handbook To Creating A Charmed Life


“Brigid was the first goddess that had a direct impact on how my life unfolded. I can also see her light and her hand at work throughout the world in many individuals and communities today.  Brigid’s Light: Tending the Ancestral Flame of the Beloved Celtic Goddess is more than an excellent anthology; it is an act of healing and the creation of a community of practice. Divine beings are vast and beyond the comprehension of any single human being. However, when you bring together the thoughts, experiences, and insight of many people, such as is present in this book, you begin to get a glimmer of Brigid’s majesty and her nature. If you are called by her, you will find both confirmation and challenges in this book, and that is her way.”  -- Ivo Dominguez Jr., author of The Four Elements of the Wise

MISSING WITCHES:

Recovering True Histories of Feminist Magic 

by Risa Dickens, Amy Torok Dickens 

List Price: $17.95 

Publisher ‏ : ‎ North Atlantic Books (March 23, 2021)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 312 pages


FROM THE PUBLISHER :

A guide to invocations, rituals, and histories at the intersection of magic and feminism, as informed by history's witches--and the sociopolitical culture that gave rise to them.


When you start looking for witches, you find them everywhere. As seekers and practitioners reclaim and restore magic to its rightful place among powerful forces for social, personal, and political transformation, more people than ever are claiming the identity of "Witch." But our knowledge of witchcraft and magic has been marred by erasure, sensationalism, and sterilization, the true stories of history's witches left untold.


Through meditations, stories, and practices, authors Risa Dickens and Amy Torok offer an intersectional, contemporary lens for uncovering and reconnecting with feminist witch history. Sharing traditions from all over the world--from Harlem to Haiti, Oaxaca to Mesopotamia--Missing Witches introduces readers to figures like Monica Sjoo, HP Blavatsky, Maria Sabina, and Enheduanna, shedding light on their work and the cultural and sociopolitical contexts that shaped it. Structured around the 8 sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, each chapter includes illustrations by Amy Torok, as well as invocations, rituals, and offerings that incorporate the authors' own wisdom, histories, and journeys of trauma, loss, and empowerment. Missing Witches offers an inside look at the vital stories of women who have practiced--and lived--magic.

BLACKTHORN'S PROTECTION MAGIC:

A Witch’s Guide to Mental and Physical Self-Defense 

by Amy Blackthorn

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Weiser Books (March 1, 2022)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 208 pages

List Price: $16.95 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

A hands-on guide to protection magic using essential oils, incense, spells, and tarot from a beloved and trusted authority.


Blackthorn's Protection Magic guides readers through the realm of the green witch to a glade filled with options for your protection. Amy Blackthorn discusses spiritual, emotional, and physical security in an easy-to-understand way. The book provides an overview of what protection means to witches and then explores practices in more depth, including:

Essential oils for protection magic

The role plant allies play in both protecting and healing

What tarot can teach us about our strengths and weaknesses

Oracle spell work as a potent source of protection


As a witch who has worked in executive security for nearly fifteen years, Amy possesses the botanical spirit of an animist witch, able to see the inherent spirit in plants, as well as a keen eye on ways to make a home feel safer and more secure, on the magical and the mundane levels. For example, holly trees provide magical protection from lightning, but also make a prickly barrier outside the home to keep burglars from lurking in the shadows.


EXCERPT: 

Psychic Protection and Purification

Amethyst—This gorgeous purple stone is aligned with psychic protec­tion as it incorporates the energy of the third eye (the theoretical seat of psychic power) as well as beneficial shielding properties.


Sage (Salvia officinalis), a.k.a. garden sage, may be related to the white sage grown in the desert, but this grow-it-yourself replacement doesn’t take away from Indigenous peoples’ practice. The Salvia family has nearly a thousand genera (the plural of genus) including Salvia ros­marinus (rosemary, formerly Rosmarinus officinalis).


Tarot Spells for Protection

These cards can be used by themselves, or in combination with other materials to achieve a personalized protection visualization. The images described are from the Smith-Rider-Waite and are commonly used as the Tarot deck in the majority of Tarot learning books and websites, so they will apply to traditionally styled Tarot decks, but feel free to sub­stitute your favorite Tarot deck in your visualization. Remember, when you’re using the imagery of the Tarot in your magic, you are not just holding a card. You are holding the magical lineage of every person who has looked to these cards for answers, control of their lives, and a better circumstance.


Essential Oils for Protection

Creating protection perfumes, diffuser blends, and more from essential oils is a great way to utilize active protective qualities of plants and also reinforce the qualities of your own personal witchcraft aims. First, we need to break down what you want to protect, and why you want to protect it. Clarity in your purpose is also help­ful. Protecting your income stream is going to look differ­ently than protecting your child as they go off to school. There are so many plants that are associated with general protection and that it can be intimidating. That’s okay, you don’t need to use all of them, or even that many. One or two will give your working the flavor of protection that you need for it to be effective.


Each day of the week has particular attributes. Here are Monday's:

Monday (Moon)—Protection magic involving the moon is the nur­turing protection of a mother’s love. It protects your inner self who is vulnerable to the slings and arrows of people who don’t know the harm in their words. The moon can protect your psyche and your intuitive traits, so if you have been plagued by doubt regarding your intuitive abilities or feel that your psychic senses are vulnerable to attack, do a working on the Moon’s day, Monday. To protect your health, work pre­ventative magic on a Monday, as healing is associated with Artemis/ Diana.

by Lilith Dorsey, Sen Elias (Foreword)

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Warlock Press (May 20, 2021)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 230 pages

List Price: $21.99 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Reclaim the Ancestral Traditions of African Religion!

In these times of intense turmoil, people of African descent are facing serious threats to their well-being. The ability of Black communities to call on the spirits and ways of their ancestors is crucial to their continued strength. Nearly 20 years have passed since the first printing of this landmark book and there is still a great need for more accurate and respectful information about ancestral beliefs that have been misrepresented, misunderstood, and maligned by popular media and the public.


This revised and expanded edition provides a helpful introduction to the religions of the African diaspora, a guide beyond the basic tenets to the vibrant, living spirit world of their peoples, and a much-needed key to protocol and proper etiquette, while clearing up common myths about Haitian Vodou, New Orleans Voodoo, Santería (Lucumí), and other practices that stem from misconceptions about possession and sacrifice. New material includes guidance for activists to empower their work for social change with the fierceness, tenacity, and wisdom of their ancestors, as well as never-before-published recipes handed down through the generations, personal spells and charms including root magick for protection and protest, and devotional rituals you can perform yourself.


“I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn the sacred stories and practices associated with the religions of our Ancestors.” —Denise Alvarado, author, The Magic of Marie Laveau and Witch Queens, Voodoo Spirits, and Hoodoo Saints


“Addresses the current turn to ancient spiritual wisdom to confront some of our most pressing societal needs.” —Yvonne Chireau, Professor of Religion; author, Black Magic: Religion and the African American Conjuring Tradition

“Lilith writes knowledgeably from the perspective of both long-term scholar and lived experience as a priestess.” —Manbo Asogwe Sallie Ann Glassman, co-creator, The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot; author, Vodou Visions; co-founder, The New Orleans Healing Center


“As a practitioner and anthropologist, Lilith communicates the sacred teachings of African traditional religions with one foot in the social sciences and one foot in sacred space.” —Tony Kail, Anthropologist; Author, A Secret History of Memphis Hoodoo: Rootwork, Conjure and Spirituals


“One of the few books on African spiritual and magical practices written by a woman of color with years of experience and recognition.” —Elhoim Leafar, Author of The Magical Art of Crafting Charm Bags and Manifestation Magic


“An enlightening and immersive guide full of helpful information for beginners and longtime practitioners.” —Fatima Mbodj, author, The New Orleans Oracle Deck; proprietor, Path of Awakenings in New Orleans


“Provocative, feminist, and revolutionary, retains the recipe book innocence of the original but is now less Betty Crocker and more Anarchist Cookbook.” —Baba Teddy, Oso of Iyami Osoronga; BabaL’awo Osun I’L’ode; Oluwo of Odu/Ifa; Konchante of Gineh Yoruba VoDou


“An honor to all those who came before who maintained and preserved the religions of the Diaspora.” —Witchdoctor Utu, founder, Dragon Ritual Drummers; author, Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad


“An immersion course in the rich history, culture, and spiritual offerings of traditional African religions.” —Mecca Woods, Astrologer; author, Astrology for Happiness and Success

HOODOO FOR BEGINNERS

An Introduction to African American Folk Magic 

by Clara Robinson

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Creek Ridge Publishing (May 12, 2021)

Language ‏ : ‎ English

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 78 pages

List Price: $9.99 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

There are many benefits to the practice of hoodoo and how it is used to influence the human condition

As much as it has been used in popular culture as a horror aesthetic, it has also in recent years become a light, illuminating the living practice of African American folk religion. Hoodoo itself developed as a combination of beliefs from different African cultures. African slaves united their beliefs and cultures after being brought to America in an attempt to go back to their own roots, to rekindle the flame of their home cultures, and thus hoodoo was born. Hoodoo was used as both a spiritual and physical tool for survival. African slaves were very unlikely to get proper medical attention, and so they had to look after their own with the use of the botanical knowledge that they had at their disposal in order to keep themselves balanced and healthy. Traditional hoodoo practices were preserved orally by those enslaved in order to ensure that practices were not lost, as many of those enslaved did not always have many earthly possessions. These practices have survived to the present day, despite the belief that it is used only in late seventeenth-century midnight seances.

Inside this book you will discover!

  • Where to Begin: Crossroads, Ancestors, Graveyards, and Spiritual Cleansing

  • Rootwork

  • Candle Magic and Oils

  • The First Steps to Your Own Mojo Bags

And Much More!!

NEW FROM ABRAXAS HOUSE

  THE KEMETIC TAROT   Deck and Book Set ~ companion book and design of the deck  by Michael Coles, with art by Anna Dorzhieva , published by Abracax House, Introductory price: $35.99 FROM THE PUBLISHER: For centuries, tarot card designers have claimed their tarot decks are based on ancient Egyptian magic. The Kemetic Tarot is based on the most powerful Egyptian magic discovered: The Book of Coming Forth by Day (also called The Book of the Dead). Written over 3,200 years ago, it is a book of spells and magic that allows a soul to invoke the gods and subdue evil adversaries during its travels from the mundane physical world through the spiritual world of the Duat (the afterlife), and finally on to eternal life in Aaru (the Egyptian Paradise). The rich, vibrant art of The Kemetic Tarot cards infuses the traditional tarot archetypes with the ancient Egyptian magic of The Book of Coming Forth by Day, as it tells the story of the Fool, the scribe Ani, on his journey through the physical and
