Witchy Pre-Orders You Don't Want to Miss
I have a confession: I've been on a book-buying spree lately. But there are so many good ones coming out soon!
September is both Self-Care Awareness Month and Self Improvement Month, which makes sense, as September contains the seasons of Virgo and Libra. In keeping with this theme, I wanted to share some awesome pre-orders that would be great additions to your toolbox.
To sweeten the deal (and entice us readers out of our money ASAP), some of the authors have nifty pre-order gifts available! So get your wallets at the ready, witches!
One of the best things to come from COVID-19 (aside from so many great books) is the way it forced us to get to know our local communities better, at least if only by taking more walks. If you're interested in taking this practice further and learning how you can work with the magic of your city, then Lisa Marie Basile's latest book City Witchery is for you.
With writing prompts, accessible rituals, ideas for utilizing even the smallest of spaces, and more, this book is sure to make you feel more deeply connected to the land you call home. Pre-order your copy before September 14!
TAROT FOR KIDS
Theresa Reed (@thetarotlady) has teamed up with artist Kailey Whitman to create a beautiful, inclusive deck inspired by the Smith-Rider-Waite––featuring children! While it's been toned down from the original by removing the sexual overtones and changing a few names, it certainly hasn't been dumbed down.
This deck and 96-page color guidebook is perfect for kids and kids at heart (raising my hand here!). If you pre-order and submit your proof of purchase here before September 21, you'll be sent a free e-book companion guide with exercises and journaling prompts for each card. Everyone who pre-orders will also be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 14 free copies! So what are you waiting for? Get on it!
THIS IS YOUR DESTINY
On September 28, Aliza Kelly's book This Is Your Destiny: Using Astrology to Manifest Your Best Life will release. In this book, Kelly explains how to take your astrology knowledge to the next level by using it as a tool for creating your best life. If you're like me and cringe when people talk about manifesting, you'll like Aliza––she has fresh takes, but without being too New Age-y (read: problematic). So get your copy here!
TAROT FOR CHANGE: USING THE CARDS FOR SELF-CARE, ACCEPTANCE, AND GROWTH
Over the last year, I've fallen in love with the way Jessica Dore associates the tarot with legends, mythology, and psychology. Her posts and newsletter offerings are always deep and thought-provoking. She's helped me see several cards in a new light and lit the way for me to find my own meanings in others. If you love tarot and are interested in using it as a tool for growth, Tarot for Change is definitely one you should order before its release on October 26.
WHILE YOU WAIT ON YOUR PREORDERS, CHECK OUT...
THE MAGICAL WRITING GRIMOIRE & LIGHT MAGIC FOR DARK TIMES BY LISA MARIE BASILE
Whether you're looking to amp up your writing practice or simply cultivate a more holistic and ritualized self-care practice, Lisa Marie Basile has got you covered!
I can assure you that reading either (or both!) will bring you so much empowerment and strength. Both are incredibly valuable to have on your shelf.
ASTROLOGY FOR REAL LIFE & TAROT: NO QUESTIONS ASKED BY THERESA REED
The Tarot Lady wasn't kidding when she called this thing A No B.S. Guide. No matter what stage you're at in learning astrology, this workbook is sure to help you feel way more comfortable tackling the subject.
Same goes for this beauty! With 78 cards in a tarot deck, it can be intimidating trying to memorize each and every one. Luckily, Reed breaks them down into sections and guides you through each card in an easy-to-understand manner. She also gives tips on how to intuit your own meanings for the cards.
STARRING YOU BY ALIZA KELLY
If The Tarot Lady's guide still feels a bit intimidating for you, then this short, sweet book by Aliza Kelly might be more up your alley. It gives a brief history of astrology, a quick overview of each of the planets, houses, and more!
YOU WERE BORN FOR THIS BY CHANI NICHOLAS
Last but certainly not least, we have Chani's book You Were Born For This, which helps readers learn about their Big Three (Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs) and how you can utilize these placements to cultivate self-acceptance and meet your potential. I am not joking when I say every astrology nerd needs this book.
That's all for now, y'all! I'll stop yapping so you can start spending! Let me know in the comments (or bookstagram or Twitter) which books you've read and pre-ordered. See you next week with a fresh book review!
