Glinda had a groovy frock, but we’d still rather be Wicked Witches. The Wicked Witch flies with a chevron of monkeys. She sees faraway faces in a crystal ball. And when she trips up that prissy little Dorothy, she gets to laugh and laugh and laugh. It just goes to show you: Wicked Witchery is cool. And according to Trish Telesco, there’s no need to feel guilty about witchiness. “The philosophy that How to Be a Wicked Witch advocates is one of preparedness...being ready for the fires when they come so you don’t get burned, and knowing how to put them out afterward!” Noted pagan author Telesco shows us all the smart, self-protective tricks of the witching trade, from protective amulets to curses to love potions. With her help, we can get what we want with a sting of dark magic.
Telesco’s primer begins with a guide to magical ingredients and accessories. She then explains how to handle the basics of Wicked Witching: fortune telling, curses, amulets, and potions. And once you learn the tricks of the trade, you’re ready to take control. “When you’re sad, depressed or downright irate, there really is a magical answer to your situation,” the author promises. “The metaphysical techniques presented throughout this book use imaginative, meaningful components that allow you to take back the reigns of control in your life.” With Telesco’s help, we can all find weird new ways of focusing our powers. We just have to stay away from water buckets. (Jesse Gale)
