Back in October, I picked up an informative little book, The Good Witch’s Perpetual Planner by Shawn Robbins and Charity Bedell. I enjoyed the book so much, I knew I needed more from this series of books. Immediately, I ordered The Good Witch’s Guide by Shawn Robbins and Charity Bedell, and Wiccapedia, The Witch’s Way and The Crystal Witch by Shawn Robbins and Leanna Greenaway.
I decided to read The Crystal Witch first because I’m kind of having a crystal moment right now. I’ve been pretty much obsessed with building my own crystal palace. So, it was only natural that I gravitated to this book in particular.
Now, if you’ve read my book, or some of my social media posts, you know I really don’t consider myself Wiccan. This is despite the fact that exactly half of my bloodline is from the Welsh/English/Irish Wiccan tradition. And, the coven I was a member of was Wiccan. But lately, I’ve found myself drawn to my Wiccan roots like never before. So, these books have been a wonderful way for me to reconnect my Wiccan ties.
The Crystal Witch is a skillfully written, illuminating tome, it’s pages filled with enlightening information. It’s truly amazing the amount of data contained within this little book.
In Part 1, you’ll learn everything from how to build your crystal toolkit, crystal correspondences, cleansing and charging your stones, to crystal spells for everyday issues.
Part 2 explores utilizing crystals with moon phases, divination, reiki, astrology and the Wiccan Wheel of the Year.
Although I consider myself pretty knowledgeable on the subject of crystals, I was able to learn many new ways to use my stones in all of my works of magick, be it spells or meditation. I thoroughly appreciated the A-Z Crystal Guide. Since I have the tendency to use the same crystals over and over again, it was nice to discover new ones I could introduce into my craft. I’ve often felt overwhelmed after reading a book on crystals. There is so much to learn and remember about each particular stone. I didn’t feel that way after reading The Crystal Witch. All of the information was concise and relevant.
My favorite chapter was Crystals through the Year. Each Sabbat has a beautifully written description with elements and traditions, along with a special spell.
I believe every witch can learn something reading The Crystal Witch. Even if, like me, you don’t consider yourself Wiccan, I think you’ll glean a better understanding of working with crystals in your craft.
