PRAISE FOR PLANETARY SPELLS & RITUALS

"Masterful and compassionate . . . Planetary Spells & Rituals provides food for thought, spells and rituals for use, and is a welcome, much-needed addition to any spellcaster's bookshelf."-Judika Illes, author of The Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells 

"Planetary Spells & Rituals is an urban, modern, and cutting-edge manual for those willing to explore the layers of magickal possibility within. Raven expresses the essence of the Craft in a clear way, and balance is a great theme of this book. The framework of Planetary Spells is quite informative for those seeking some strong workings to bring forth realistic results." -Michael W. Ford, Author of Luciferian Witchcraft and The Bible of the Adversary

"Unlike most spellbooks, which focus on the moon, Planetary Spells & Rituals places major importance on zodiacal and planetary influences, with the power of the sun playing a pivotal role. Eclectic and unusual spells are accompanied by sensible explanations of how spells work and how to cast them well. As always, Raven takes an old standard and makes it new and fresh, with a magickal approach all his own." -Deborah Blake, author of The Everyday Witch A to Z Spellbook and The Goddess is in the Details

"With his usual depth, clarity, and highly readable style, Raven Digitalis reveals yet another layer we can add to our magic's efficacy and power - perfect timing! This, in addition to many creative and practical ideas for spellwork, renders Planetary Spells & Rituals a must-have for any Witchy library." -Thuri Calafia, author of Dedicant: A Witch's Circle of Fire

"With great understanding Raven takes his readers into previously uncharted territory as Planetary Spells dives deep into the nuances of astrology, dark and light magick, and weaves together a unique and much-needed volume explaining the connections between them." -Corvis Nocturnum, author of Embracing the Darkness; Understanding Dark Subcultures and Allure of the Vampire; Our Sexual Attraction to the Undead

I bought this thinking that I might have to struggle with putting the author's views to the side (due to my distaste for what most people call dark magic and my worry this book might have a bit of a pompous ceremonialist slant) but actually I found the author to be insightful, engaging, and even funny. I actually found myself to spend time contemplating his words. I was hoping for something that would provide more direct material for meditation on the planets and astrology, but the creative applications for the planetary energies is excellent. Yay for a spellbook that goes beyond simple love charms and money spells! I also think that reading between the lines and contemplating the various reasons the spells are where they are will still get me the fresh and in depth perspective on the planets I wished for.
