The Witch's Herbal Apothecary: Rituals & Recipes for a Year of Earth Magick and Sacred Medicine Making
This book teaches you to ride the regenerative currents of Nature in your own living, creative process, medicine making, and healing work, and in deepening your relationships with the Earth, Spirit, and yourself.
I recommend you read this book in order. Part I explains the cosmology we use, the Wheel of the Year, and the various access points for magickal connection.
Although Part II is divided into the four portals associated with the seasons, we don’t only travel the Wheel of the Year over the course of 365 days. We connect to all points of the wheel with each lunar cycle (every 28 to 31 days), as well as traveling it each day.
Therefore, you may want to begin reading the chapter of the season in which you find yourself, but ultimately, all the portals are accessible in certain moments of each day, month, and season, and in the archetypes we
embody on the larger wheel of our life.
You will notice that many of the practices and rituals are simple. A Witch truly only needs their body, breath, and connection to Spirit to perform rituals of healing, magick, and transformation. Furthermore, a Green Witch draws on their attunement with Nature.
Thus, the most important invitation of this work is for you to find your place of union with the Earth. Wherever it is, however it occurs, it is when you feel plugged into the source of chi, the energy of life, the Great Mystery and the magick and love in your heart—it is from that place that magick flows.
