While the best way to learn about witchcraft is through a community of witches. Mentors with the knowledge to pass down. From the information given to you by your spirit guides should you be blessed to communicate with them books are a valuable tool for learning about witchcraft. In my early years, I did not know witchcraft existed. I merely knew what I could do and the knowledge given to me by the spirit through Claircognizance (clear knowing) that drives my husband insane. You know the jokes about women being right and men being wrong… imagine being married to a psychic… Eventually, I met other amazing witches and found great books.
I am forever growing on my journey. Forever twisting and turning along my path. Heck, I have flat out tumbled off my path quite a few times. Even with a couple of decades of experience, I love to find new books about witchcraft to learn new things. These books on witchcraft are some of my favorites.
Books about witchcraft.
The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells
The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells is by far my favorite. This book is probably why I went a more Eclectic Witch direction in my path despite having more Wiccan Influences in my formative years. Packed with spells and in-depth knowledge of everything from gods to ancient civilizations this book is so much more than a spellbook and a must for any witchy bookshelf.

Witchery: Embrace the Witch Within
Witchery: Embrace the Witch Within is a great book I grabbed for my husband when he started asking for some guidance to follow a peek in his interest. I fell in love with this book because of its similarities to how I work my magic. The Auther tells it like it is and doesn’t fear to tell you that your magic will only work if you make it work and you can’t just do a spell and forget about it expecting something to happen.
Earth, Air, Fire & Water: More Techniques of Natural Magic
Earth, Air, Fire & Water: More Techniques of Natural Magic is a very practical guide to the world of magic. This book shows you the truth of magic and how it comes from within and that spells don’t need to be elaborate to serve their purpose. I recommend this cook for beginners and advanced witches looking to get back down to the bare roots of magic.
The Green Witch: Your Complete Guide to the Natural Magic of Herbs, Flowers, Essential Oils, and More
The Green Witch: Your Complete Guide to the Natural Magic of Herbs, Flowers, Essential Oils, and More makes a great option for modern-day witches looking for a guide a green living, nature-based magical path.
Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft
A Witches’ Bible: The Complete Witches’ Handbook
Another great book for beginner witches is A Witches’ Bible: The Complete Witches’ Handbook. This book is not a bible in the sense you are accustomed to but a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know to get started on the beginning of your journey.
