Year of the Witch: Connecting with Nature's Seasons through Intuitive Magick (PDF)

 Year of the Witch: Connecting with Nature's Seasons through Intuitive MagickI love this book so much I ve been feeling stuck in my practice for a while and this is xactly what I needed to break me out of my lull Whether your a beginner or a xperienced practitioner this book will shed a whole new light on multiple topics Definitely worth the read Beautifully written book This book covers so much than just creating a wheel of the year that is inline with your own personal geographical locations weather and harvests Alden teaches us some of the history and origins of the 8 traditional wheel of the year celebrations as well as other natural cycles of the year and much much I pop a page marker in books I m reading when I want to look back at something and this book is now filled with page markers For me that s a sign of a really great book There are so many problems with this book The first is that it is not as it is marketed The wheel of the year isn t discussed until over halfway through the book and then only includes the most basic of info you could do a Google search to find Only the last few pages say anything about trying to customize your holidays and that s not much The only thing I learned is that there s an orange season in FloridaThe second problem is the writing is very poor The author rambles and talks about things that have nothing to the writing is very poor The author rambles and talks about things that have nothing to with the main subject She contradicts her own personal story several times which makes me uestion her claim that she is a hereditary witch I m not saying whether or not this true only that she comes across as a very unreliable source Apparently she has a large Instagram following so was approached to write a book A pretty Instagram feed does not translate into being able to write a book but I m sure the publisher thought the name alone would sell copiesThe third and biggest issue is the author makes some disturbing claims She denies climate change in a book that s supposedly about honouring the arth Then she shames women who take birth control and says that the medication dulls your natural magick This alone makes me dismiss anything she has to sayIn short save your money There s so many better books out there that discuss the wheel of the year that don t deny science or shame women This Book Provides Some Potentially book provides some potentially information in supporting climate change denial using a theory that does not account for the rate of current climate change without mentioning the counter argument with L'extraction de la dent de sagesse evidence and backed byven scientists that climate change is real and is caused by humans In describing the natural changes of climate it discusses Milankovitch cycles suggesting a number of scientists believe that due to this cycle humans have little influence over global warming and the current cycle the Orthopédie et orthodontie à l'usage du chirurgien-dentiste : Tome 1, La création des dysmorphies earth is going throughDid notxpect to read this in a book that is largely about reconnecting with and loving the world I was really impressed with how much science was used throughout the book until this Point I Now Uestion The Validity Off I now uestion the validity off cited although there were no citations references for the scientists who support the Milankovitch theory This book is a mixture about learning not only about Paganism Witchcraft but you also learn about the author herself In a way you have that feeling as if she wrote the book ju. In her much needed and brilliantYear of the WitchTemperance Alden guides readers to observe their own land celestial cycles seasonal cycles and ven their own biological cycles to inform their magickal year Mat Auryn author of Psychic Witch A Metaphysical Guide to Meditation Magick and Manifestation When we think of the wheel of the year the Wiccan wheel with its celebrations of the Yule Beltane Mabon and Samhain come to mind But what about a wheel of.


Nstead of yet another beginner level book If you don t know already the author Temperance Alden in a growing Instagram and YouTube content creator 90% of the reviews on the book are NOT reviewing the content of the book you are buying they are reviews of fans support for herNow I follow Temperance on her platforms I like the content she creates and the perspective and opinion that makes her uniue but this book is not a Must Read or a Perfect Book for Beginners In ssence from a book content standpoint this is not a good book to add to your collection If you want to support Temperance go for it but if you re buying a book to learn about the Wheel of the Year don t buy itAll advertisement for this book is about the Wheel of the Year and creating your own Wheel based off of your path This is not true Completely false advertisement Out of 183 pages of LEGITAMTE content only 75 pages are dedicated to the Wheel of the Year that is about 41% of the book Out of 183 pages only 16 pages are dedicated to creating your personal Wheel that is about 87% of the book In total only 497% of the book is dedicated to what was totally advertisedOverall the book is poorly written There are grammar and spelling mistakes throughout the book It was very hard to get through Some topics have little information given some topics are purely the authors opinion and some topics have way too much information that is not factual based off of previous readings research and books that it turned me off completely I constantly was saying to myself this has nothing to do with the Wheel of the Year or This information will never impact anyone s personal Wheel This was not advertised as a cookie cutter beginner book Even if it was a book for beginners it is so badly written that there are multiple other beginner books that are better worth your money and time The hardest thing about reading this book was the author s tangents that came out of no where She would write maybe two or three really good sentences then drastically shift the narrative to but you don t need to think this way Which completely ruined the paragraph and made me think why would you La photographie dentaire : Etape par étape even write about it then This happened almostvery page after page 15Out of the 497% of the actual advertised segment of the book the author goes into the different spokes of the Wheel She goes over Les dyschromies dentaires: Un diagnostic précis pour un traitement esthétique réussi each of the 8 sabbats individually talking about their history and traditions She then talks about her opinion of the celebration and gives a spell or food recipe Some spokes of the Wheel are talked about in depth than others you can tell which are her favorite She thenxplains how you can create your own Wheel of the Witch based off of your personal situation This
chapter could be 
could be if the first 50% of the book didn t ruin the book for me this chapter was only 11 pages and poorly writtenThe first 50% of the book which has NOTHING to do with the Wheel of the Year was a waste of my time If I wanted to learn intuition spirits gardening or cooking then I waste of my time If I wanted to learn about intuition gardening or cooking then I research and buy a book about that subject As I said above this is NOT a cookie cutter beginner book If you want a beginner book this is NOT one that has good well written informative knowledge for you The author s tangen.

St to you This is a perfect witchcraft 101 book I myself am an Eclectic Witch and found a handful of rituals that will be added to my Book of Shadows From the first page you know you re in the right place The you read the better it gets This book is jam packed full of La SEL de chirurgiens-dentistes everything a basic witch needs and wants It feels like a coven sister wrote you a nice long letter with love and care And plenty of sass but that s just Temperance who is a rockstar by the way Must have book for witches of any level or those just curious I wasxcited about supporting a small business and solo Fluor Erreur médicale majeure entrepreneur in the witch community but this let me down as did the author I really wanted to dive into creating my own wheel of the year as I don t follow Wicca since it s just full of cultural appropriation from other practices But that section is fewer than ten pages including two and a half pages that outline basiclements of things like making ornaments and bread Most of the rest is kind of rudimentaryI was further disappointed at the author s statements on social media around how Tarot is open for anyone to practice without any nuance or inclusion of I cannot give Chirurgie esthétique mucogingivale enough praise for this book There is so much useful information for beginner and advanced witches alike Temperance Alden has made the wheel of the yearasy to make your own without making it overwhelming I also love the budget witchcraft section as I haven t seen that in a book before I have shared this book with all of my friends and cannot wait to see what this author does next This author is a poor writer and has A Superficial Grasp On Witchcraft superficial grasp on witchcraft uses a lot of personal stories hyperbole and personal interpretation to present the very basics of witchcraft It sounds like her Occlusodontie pratique experience with the craft is very immature and based on what she has seen on social media And I m not sure it wasdited as there are a bunch of Complexité du système masticateur : Manifeste pour un nouveau paradigme de l'occlusion dentaire examples of words used incorrectly I think she s trying to sound much sophisticated than she isThere are so manyxamples in La gestion globale du cabinet dentaire Volume 1: l'organisation technique each chapter that could illustrate my above pointsIf you want a GOOD introduction to witchcraft and the wheel of the year look up Skye Alexander or Amy Cesari Pretty sure I just read that our current climate crisis is in no way caused by human influence and is due to thearths wobble A blatant misuse of science I stopped reading there Not going to take any type of advice from a climate change denier The description of this one makes it sound like it s about personalizing your practice but the chunk about creating your own wheel of the year is less than ten pages including two and a half pages that describe basic Relation humaine et communication au cabinet dentaire: Aspects particuliers en parodontie. examples of home grown traditions like baking bread or making ornaments Most of the rest isither 101 level info or standard descriptions of the usual sabbats dumb suppers for Samhain spring cleaning for Ostara La fonction occlusale: Implications cliniques - 3eme édition etcThe author does have a valuable perspective and I was happy to see that the introduction to the overall history of the sabbats while short was honest about the roots of wiccan tradition I think this would be a great option for a new witch s first book about the sabbats I was just hoping based on the way it was presented that this would be a thorough resource about creating your own calendar The year for the rest of us pagans and witches As a witch living in sunny South Florida longtime hereditary witch Temperance Alden has often felt at odds gearing up to celebrate Yule forxample when it is 76 degrees and sunny outsideYear of the Witch will help readers create their own intuitive practices in harmony with the climate culture and local spirits where they live Its of interest to witches coming off the Wiccan path and looking for a persona. ,
