Going Back to My Roots

I’ve been a witch for as long as I can recall…

This summer I wanted to re-dedicate myself to myself and create my own kind of witchcraft, but I got a little swept up in Hellenism (not a bad thing!) and making my own magic book, which wasn’t my original intention.

I still want to do my daily devotionals to Hestia and Hecate and celebrate the Greek festivals though, but I’d like to go back and re-read my old books on witchcraft. I want to begin again and rediscover what witchcraft means to me and others.

Before the house fire, I had tons of books. After the house fire, I just got a few back including:

  1. Outer Temple of Witchcraft by Christopher Penczak
  2. Temple of Shamanistic Witchcraft by Christopher Penczak
  3. Evolutionary Witchcraft by T. Thorn Coyle
  4. The Earth Path by Starhawk
  5. Tree of Life by Israel Regardie
  6. Kissing the Limitless by T. Thorn Coyle

Books that I didn’t have until after the house fire:

  1. The Fourth Way by P.D. Ouspensky
  2. Philosophy: The Quest for Truth by Louis P. Pojman and Lewis Vaughn
  3. Celebrating Wiccan Spirituality by Lady Sabrina
  4. Key to the Mysteries by Eliphas Levi
  5. The Study of Witchcraft by Deborah Lipp
  6. Myth and Knowing by Scott Leonard and Micheal McClure
  7. Theogony by Hesiod
  8. The Iliad and The Odyssey by Homer
  9. Metamorphoses by Ovid
  10. 54 Devils by Cory Thomas Hutcheson
  11. Traditional Witchcraft series by Melusine Draco
  12. Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells by Judika Illes
  13. A Wiccan Bible by A.J. Drew

I feel like my path is more messy than I would like it to be. While Hellenism has given me plenty of foundation to work with, I feel like my witchcraft has lost its spark so I’m going to attempt to rediscover my witch-y path.

      1. Have read several Llewellyn in the past. Will have a look for Coyle. Reading some Vedic stuff. Always following the moon.
        Watching Underworld right now.


  1. I always recommend the Introductions from the Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells for beginner witches/people wanting to build a witchcraft practice from the ground up. It’s possibly the best resource I’ve found!
