Learning Wicca

One witch's way down the pagan path.

Library

These are the current books in my Wiccan library. Over time it will grow. I’d like to share them with you as well as my thoughts about reading it.

Current Read :
Witchcraft Today
A rather old book by Gerald Gardner, who many say is the Father of Modern Witchcraft. Definitely seem like an interesting read. Can’t wait to get into some of his history lessons. Book is a little controversial in the Wiccan/Pagan community. Feel free to check out some reviews. I hope do be diving into here shortly.

Next up :
Wicca: Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham

Cunningham’s classic introduction to Wicca is about how to live life magically, spiritually, and wholly attuned with nature. It is a book of sense and common sense, not only about magick, but about religion and one of the most critical issues of today: how to achieve the much needed and wholesome relationship with our Earth. Cunningham presents Wicca as it is today: a gentle, Earth-oriented religion dedicated to the Goddess and God. Wicca also includes Scott Cunningham’s own Book of Shadows and updated appendices of periodicals and occult suppliers.  – Amazon.com

Previous Books and Reviews :

Wicca for Beginners: Fundamentals of Philosophy & Practice (For Beginners (Llewellyn’s))
This was somewhat an accidental read, but definitely worth it. Sabin has a very clean and impartial view. She hits the highlights and basics that you would find in any Wiccan book but does, but keeps her own personal practices tamed down. It was quiet enjoyable to read. I also liked since is stated as a beginner book, that it really does stay very simple and easy to read. One book I would most definitely recommend, especially to one starting out or looking for some general guidance in what Wicca is and isn’t.

Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation
Quite a bit of content to be sorted through in this one. Silver Ravenwolf seems to cover quite a bit of topics with a good amount of detail. The only complaint I have with this book is it seems to be overly geared to teen witches yet with mixed adult witch type content, which is some what a disappointment seeing as she already specifically has a Teen Witch book.  I as a young adult don’t see it that to much to read past, but I’m sure older witches might be a little more disheartened by the perceived target audience.
