Overall, I thought that this book was a great introduction to magic! Practical Magic for Beginners covers a wide range of subjects:
- Sigils and talismans
- Dream interpretation
- Spirit guides
- Plant magic
- Herbal remedies
This wide range of subjects is both a good thing and a bad thing, in my opinion. It’s good because you get an introduction to many subjects, which is great for a beginner. But it can be a bad thing because you don’t learn in-depth about any of them. Plus, maybe not every topic is something that you’re particularly interested in. It is an introductory book for beginners, though. So reading about these topics allows you to figure out what you want to eventually learn more about. After the lesson for each topic, there are exercises to do to help you practice what you learned. I thought this was a good idea. I also thought that the charts were helpful. Also, at the end of the book, the author’s list of references is a good list of other helpful magic books to read! The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish that there had been some more history to it. It would’ve been nice to learn a little bit about the history of magic, especially in a book for beginners. I feel like that’s important to someone who wants to get into a subject like this. But overall, this book is definitely a helpful tool to keep handy as you embark on your magical journey!
