Craft: How to be a Modern Witch is a lifestyle guide for modern women who want to empower themselves as witches. Covering everything from different traditions of witchcraft, working with crystals, tarot, astrology, rituals and spellcraft, Craft is a practical guide to contemporary witchcraft practice. Bright and irreverent, the author shows how contemporary women such as Patti Smith, Stevie Nicks, Beyonce and Dita Von Teese can be thought of as Witch archetypes, and she also devotes a chapter to “Fashion Magic” – the intersection of style, beauty and glamour. With useful advice on creating your own goddess-based practice, developing your own grimoires and individual witchy style, Craft is a wonderful fusion of traditional practice, updated for the modern woman, showing how to bring magic into one’s everyday life.
