Written by the best-selling author of The Wicca Handbook, Spells for the Solitary Witch is a book of 87 spells for beginning and intermediate witches who practice the Craft alone.
Solitary witches, writes Holland, are those who practice the Craft without a coven or other group. Some witches are solitary because of circumstances, but the rest of us are solitary by choice... we feel no need to join a formal group. We like our independence and prefer the freedom to do things our own way. This book's spells are all designed to be cast by a single witch, working alone. Coveners can also use them when they work by themselves or by adapting the spells for group use.
Clear and easy to follow, Spells for the Solitary Witch explains how to prepare and cast spells, lists the materials needed for each spell, and provides the incantations to say that will ensure the best results. Tailored to the needs of solitary Witches, Holland suggests alternatives to hard-to-find ingredients as well as directions about where to find specific ingredients crucial to a spell's success. Also included is an index of spells to make it easy to find the spell you need.
The book offers spells for every need, including love, money, wishes, uncrossing, protection, and problem-solving.
A wide variety of techniques are used in the spells:
And a variety of rituals
And there are all kinds of spells, including: smudging, asperging, invocation, incantation, and visualization.
Holland also offers blessings and ways to use incense in rituals as well as a section that shows how to create a talisman suited to a Witch's astrological sign.
Spells for the Solitary Witch offers everything a Witch needs to practice the Craft.
