Overview

While the art of witchcraft is uniquely personal, an underlying code of ethics and principles binds its serious practitioners together. For the first time, this code is defined in terms everyone can understand. In A Witch's 10 Commandments, renowned Wiccan author Marian Singer uses the ubiquitous biblical rules to frame the 10 tenets witches should live by. These tenets incorporate aphorisms common to the New Age, Neo-Pagan movement, such as:

  • Thou art God/Goddess
  • As Above, so Below; as Within, so Without
  • Spirit abides in all things; Names have power
  • Maintain an attitude of gratitude
  • Honor the ancestors, your elders, teachers, and leaders
  • All life is sacred
  • All acts of love and pleasure are sacred
  • Whatever you send out, returns three fold
  • Love is the law; Love under will
  • Work for the greatest good, and harm none
Accompanying each commandment are practical spiritual exercises for everyday issues, such as controlling an over-heated temper, supporting elders and teachers, giving back to the earth, and more. With A Witch's 10 Commandments in their libraries, readers have a solid blueprint for ethical practice, allowing them to walk the ancient path of the witch in today's world.

I found this book ok to read, contradicts itself in some places.

I think that this was a great book to add to my collection. The only conflict I had with the book is that the author gives personal opinions a lot, but that gives you insight into that author. So it's not altogether a bad thing. I love the activities that are provided throughout the book. Things to holp you better understand each commandment, rather than just giving you what it means and leaving you to fend for yourself.

I loved this book. As a Wiccan and very committed to my faith, it helped build a strong foundation for a spiritual foundation of this brand of Witchcraft. It is a feel good book and doesn't give spells or anything Witch 101, but what it does do is give a primer for those coming to the path and especially those who are coming from Christianity or who have family and friends who are Christian and they need a common starting point for dialog.
