I've included every good book I know about how to cast spells for love, money, protection, health, fame and fortune. Every one has an honored place in my magical library. Many are ideal for the new witch.
If you would like more information on each book just click the picture. The link will take you to Llewellyn Publishers, the single best source for sound magical information now and for over 100 years! And without whom most of the knowledge we have today would have been lost.
I've tried to scan the covers but my scanner leaves something to be desired. In addition, these may not be the current covers.
I'll try to OCR (or cut & paste) an excerpt or review to give you an idea what the book is about. You can't judge a book by its cover.
"Magic doesn't have to be just for holy days and Sabbats, says Dugan, a self-described 'garden witch' who has practiced witchcraft for fifteen years. Magic can also bring energy to everyday life, and can punctuate the rhythm of days and weeks. . . This book will be useful to novice practitioners, who may find it a winsome invitation to incorporating magic into daily life, and to women who are interested in Wicca. The book's layout is attractive and Dugan's writing style is hip and on-target for her audience (Lilith, for instance, is described as 'the original bad-ass chick')." Publishers Weekly
You need no magickal tools, elaborate robes, or witchy jewelry to make this trip. Just bring along your passion and self-discipline, your humility and your courage, your determination and your faith. Unlike the road of the mainstream religions where the flock must play Follow the Leader into the realms of higher learning, we Witches must find that path ourselves and walk it alone. This requires the courage of our convictions, faith in our deities, trust in ourselves, and a balance in all areas of our life that allows us to walk the path of self-responsibility to bravely face the wonders of 'that which can never be told.'
Saint Christopher medals, ankhs, birthstones, four-leaf clovers-all
are examples of magical objects used for protection or to attract good luck.

One need not go up to the mountaintop to commune with Divinity: its temple is the body,
its sacrament the communion between lovers. Ecstasy Through Tantra traces the ancient
practices of sex magick through the Egyptian, Greek and Hebrew forms, where the sexual
act is viewed as symbolic of the highest union, to the highest expression of Western sex magick.
"This is a good beginner's text for those wanting to introduce an element of ritual
into their practice. It is especially handy for those who want to
experience temple ceremonies but do not have access to suitable groups
or temples in their area. It also provides a handy overview
of the main deities in the Egyptian pantheon." - Prediction Magazine

magic, secret Tantric symbols, Tantric massage, the Tantric mass, and Tantric terminology are
all explored in this comprehensive guide to sexual Tantra.
"Malachi suggests the need for a 'new gospel, a gospel of the Cosmic Christ'--a Christ inherent in
every person, not the crucified-risen Christ revered by the church--and proceeds to give three-
to-five page 'meditations' on each of the 114 sayings in Thomas, weaving in teachings from the
Kabbalah and other mystical traditions." Washington Post
