The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power, by Sable Aradia

Reviewed by Nornoriel Lokason

This is one of the very best Pagan books I have ever read. It is the sort of thing I wish I could send back in time to myself when I started off in Paganism back in 1995 (identifying then as Wiccan).

The thing that I liked the most about the book was that it shows, not just tells. There are many exercises in the book, explained in a very clear manner, so even if you are brand new to witchcraft and don’t know what you’re doing, this book will show you how to get started in magick… not merely casting spells, but learning the theory behind magick, how it works, and how to develop your senses and psychic abilities and the ability to push energy and thought around, to make yourself a better magician. The book is practical. The exercises in the book do not require a lot of expensive and arcane preparation to do. There are also useful correspondence tables, recipes for incense, ritual drinks, instructions on sacred dance, and energy work. The book also has some very well-reasoned advice on intent (the foundation of magick), without being preachy or sounding sanctimonious in any way (which is a trap that some authors fall into), including drawing from the author’s experience (as opposed to “do as I say” without explaining why).
