Here’s my thoughts on this weekend’s challenge! This excerpt is from the Solitary Witch “The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation” by Silver RavenWolf
“The essence of witchcraft is transformation. The idea us to take the “you” currently present and accounted for and change into something better, greater, stronger and incredibly dynamic. Being a witch means to want to work everyday to be a better person. When you change yourself, then the world around you cannot help but change. There’s no getting around it.”
I absolutely loved that. Obviously I couldn’t read the whole 500+ page book, but I did spend time browsing the pages and reading through some parts I found interesting. There is just so much information here, and I’m happy I was gifted this book. There are parts that seem rather juvenile/immature, but I think it’s due to trying to include a younger audience.
I read blurbs about tarot, scrying, the sabbats, elemental correspondences and a variety of random spells. They range from super simple sigil spells to pages-long more complicated spells.
I paid close attention to the Samhain pages, as it’s coming soon this was the most interesting piece of information I found!

I definitely enjoyed this challenge, and it pushed me to read a few of my favorite thriller murder mystery novels as well! Thanks again for always giving us the right challenge at the right time!
