Some book by Fiona Horne, I can't even remember the name. I looked through it once, and was pretty horrified. lol Needless to say I never touched that book again. :rolleyes_witch:

what it was once needful for the wise to know.”

OMG there are so many. A real bady was WITCH by Fiona Horne


Before I get to my actual post, I just want to say that I do understand why people find her to be fluffy or insincere and now I do think she has become a Celebriwiccan and not what she originally claimed to be and YES she is quite fake (given she preached natural mind/natural body and she has 2 rather large unnatural adornments on her chest) I did want to say something in her defense (I can hear the shocked gasps now).

Her book "Witch: A Personal Journey" was one of the first books on Witchcraft I bought when I decided to reconnect with my interest in witchcraft. It is an easy read and for someone in the Southern Hemisphere where books on southern witchcraft can be quite rare, I found it interesting. It was nice to read about some one's path, how they got there, what they learned on the way and just the personal perspective.

Her later works are not something I would recommend to others since she is some one who changes her mind every other day now and is more concerned with celebrity status than actually practising her craft but her first book was quite helpful a few years ago to me. It lead me to other paths, others areas of interest and to traditional witchcraft.
