Coauthor of the bestselling How to Turn Your Ex-Boyfriend into a Toad, Deborah Gray shares an array of hexes, spells, and incantations for revenge, power, and protection.

Life is beautiful but crossing paths with awful people can make your life a misery. It is a fact. Some people are beasts.

This is a little book of 101 humorous hexes, protection spells, and banishing incantations. Gray helps readers to get back at errant boyfriends, dream-sabotaging scoundrels, and back-stabbing bitchy gossips. Spell titles include Dragon Slayer, Nanny No Go, Dirty Rotten Scoundrel, Troll Stalker, and Jinx Off.

This is a high-spirited, fun, magical romp. The goal here is not only to have a good time but also to “get your mojo back,” re-learn the importance of laughing out loud, and regain your personal power.

“Let’s face it: some people are just horrible beasts. Why not live your life free from the 

In my mailbox: Lost Teachings of the Runes

An earth-honoring approach to rune divination using the northern Spirit Wheel as a guide and rune-casting sheet.

Lost Teachings of the Runes invites the reader to journey to the realms of past and future that exist hidden beyond the horizon and beneath our feet. Using an engaging blend of stories, meditations, and ancestral knowing, author Ingrid Kincaid explores Northern Mysteries from the center of the Wheel of Life. Kincaid demonstrates ways the Wheel can be used to connect ancient wisdom with modern life, and offers tools and teachings that may be used on a daily basis to enable readers to reclaim their personal power. Lost Teachings of the Runes presents a life-affirming, death-honoring approach that returns the runes to a place of balance, to light and dark, to order and chaos, and to the roots and branches of the world tree.

Known as the Rune Woman, Ingrid Kincaid is an author, educator and workshop facilitator with over 45 years of experience. She is a staff-carrying wise woman in the Old Norse tradition and her connection with the runes is ancestral. Ingrid teaches throughout the United States and Europe.

In my mailbox: Living Runes

Living Runes
Theory and Practice of Norse Divination
Galina Krasskova

Look at what landed in my mailbox today! I love those people at Weiser Books! You should see this book in your favorite bookstore June 1st. Living Runes http://redwheelweiser.com/detail.html?id=9781578636662

Living Runes provides a thorough examination of the Norse runes that will challenge the experienced rune worker to deepen his or her understanding of these mysteries.

The book begins with an explication of the story of Odin, the Norse god who won the runes by sacrificing himself on the World Tree. It continues by examining each of the individual runes in turn, both the Elder Futhark and the lesser-known Anglo-Saxon Futhorc. Each rune is studied not only from a historical viewpoint but also from the perspective of a modern practitioner. You will be introduced to the practice of galdr as well as the magical use of the runes and the proper way to sacrifice to them and read them for divination.

Most importantly, the book specifically addresses the runes as living spirits and provides guidance on developing a working relationship with these otherworldly allies.

Galina Krasskova ( https://krasskova.wordpress.com/ ) is a free-range

RIP Raven Grimassi

I have just learned that Raven Grimassi, has passed away. His wife, Stephanie Ann Zarrabi (pen-name Stephanie Taylor), announced that Grimassi died on March 10, 2019, following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

“The soul is drawn into a lineage that anchors it in a specific current within the Material Plane. There are many lessons to be gained and many challenges to temper the soul. There is also a flowing river of consciousness from the past that empowers us with knowledge and wisdom.”

Reading Water Witchcraft: Magic and Lore from the Celtic Tradition

I think that I may be a merfolk.

An accessible in-depth guide to Celtic water lore, including spells, rituals, water spirits, and merfolk

Let Annwyn Avalon, a practicing water witch herself, take you into the world of water magic. The water magic and lore in this book focuses on the Celtic tradition, but draws on other water magic traditions as well, and features rainwater, as well as lakes, rivers, oceans, canals, swamps, and other watery locations, together with the folk and magical customs that have been and are still practiced at these places. The book teaches the reader how to set up a water altar at home, how to connect with water spirits, and how to gather or create water witch tools. Readers are encouraged to visit local water sites but will also find an abundance of material to perform at home. Included are practical examples, visualizations, and exercises so any reader can start to take up spell work and establish their spiritual connection to water.

In my mailbox: Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman

I want to thank Weiser Books for the free review copy of Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad by Witchdoctor Utu.

The spirits of Harriet Tubman, John Brown, and other heroes of the Underground Railroad guide readers on a magical path to healing, empowerment, and liberation.

The historical role that magic and soothsaying played in the Underground Railroad has long been ignored out of fear it might diminish the legacy of Harriet Tubman and other heroes of that time. However, Harriet Tubman was a Conjure woman who relied on her dreams and visionary experiences to lead her followers to freedom. Revered as “Mama Moses,” she, along with John Brown, Mary Ellen Pleasant, and others have been venerated since their deaths. They now have emerged in the 21st century as the pantheon of a new and increasingly popular African-Diaspora tradition.

Written by Witchdoctor Utu, founder of the Niagara Voodoo Shrine, this is the first book devoted to the spiritual and magical tradition of the Underground Railroad. In it, the author conjures the spirits of the Underground Railroad, their continued connection to each other, and their “tracks” still leading to freedom from obstacles, bondage, and trouble and tribulations of all kinds. It is a spiritual tradition that is broadly accessible and inclusive, much like the historical Underground Railroad itself, whose participants were black, white, and Native American, male and female, Christians, Jews, Quakers, animists, secret devotees of forbidden African religions, and free thinkers of all kinds.

This revelatory book teaches readers how to invoke the blessings of Mama Moses and her followers, access their healing inspiration and magic powers, and seek their own path to freedom.
