Are You a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?
Or perhaps you are a witch who simply wants to make some dramatic, positive changes. The next time you are downsized, dumped on, or jilted, or feel like a drudge, turn to this light-hearted but learned primer on the art of spellcraft. This witty combination of traditional rituals for finding health, wealth, and happiness will also show you clever ways to use magic for exacting just retribution, balancing karmic bank accounts, chastising a wayward lover, improving your personal image, or effectively dealing with a meddlesome mother. With incantations drawn from a variety of magickal traditions (as well as suggestions on how to customize them) and simple rituals that require nothing more than willpower and ingredients found in any household, Patricia Telesco explains transformational methods for handling both the big crises and the little annoyances of everyday life, including how to:
Increase sexual potency and passion · Improve your luck · Lure a lover · Resolve a family feud · Increase personal charisma · Attract prosperity
Filled with sane advice and sassy examples, How to Be a Wicked Witch will help you release the witch within.

Despite its ominous title, How to Be a Wicked Witch is more like a bad girls' guide to being a good witch. Considering the primary tenet of witchcraft--"Harm no one, including yourself"--there's really not much leeway to be wicked, according to author Patricia Telesco. The trick, then, is not to attack your enemies, notes Telesco (author of Magick Made Easy). Rather, stay well defended and sharp in skills. This way, you can ward off attackers and remain wickedly happy with your dazzling strength and confident attitude. Telesco offers specific suggestions for boosting witch esteem and magical powers, such as "Living well is the best revenge" and "Own a decent broom" (to sweep out the dirt in life and sweep in good luck). She refuses to offer guidelines for enacting revenge or casting evil curses, since black magic will come back to "bite you in the butt." Other tips include casting spells for self-protection, learning fortunetelling skills, and creating magic potions. --Gail Hudson
