Trying to regain a little of my spirituality back, I got to the wiccan wheel of the year, trying to get a little more in touch with my inner power and in tune with the earth, I did discover a few beautiful books if you´re beginning in this path.
From the Modern Witchcraft series comes a complete guide to all of the sacred days and holidays of the Wiccan calendar—with spells, rituals, and other tips to celebrate.
In The Modern Witchcraft Guide to the Wheel of the Year , you’ll learn about the most celebrated days in the Wheel of the Year—Samhain, the end of the harvest season; Yule, the celebration of the New Year; Imbolc, the celebration of rebirth; Ostara, the arrival of Spring; Beltane, the celebration of Earth’s fertility; Litha, the song of the summer; Lughnasad, the halfway point between Summer and Autumn; and Mabon, the festival of home and harvest.
For each of these special days, there will be information about the history and its meaning, and the ways you can fully celebrate. Each chapter describes the celestial events associated with the sabbat, astrological influences during that time, meditation rituals, and charms to perform. It also includes a practical craft, such as candle making, that you can create to celebrate each day.
The Modern Witchcraft Guide to the Wheel of the Year is your complete guide to everything you need to know to celebrate the Wheel of the Year and the Wiccan sabbats, from Yule to Samhain, as part of your own spiritual practice.
This one i can recommended as a beginner guide to the wheel of the year, or if you’re looking for inspiration if you haven’t practiced in a while for any reason.
It does have some helpful rituals and guidance on how you can decorate and celebrate the sabbaths so if you’re looking for a first guidance book totally worth it.
The Celts saw time as a great wheel that was continually turning. The sun and the moon served as their calendar, dividing time’s circle and marking the changing seasons as they circled around. Each day, each season, each moon was sacred in its own way. The Celts celebrated each turning of wheel of time with feasting and fire, ritual and prayer. Through these celebrations, the Celts experienced their harmony with a larger, deeper world. Fertility, birth, growth, and death were repeating patterns that waxed and waned—and prayer and ritual allowed the Celts to weave these patterns into their consciousness, finding hope and comfort in their repetition.
This book gives modern readers their own prayers and seasonal rituals to celebrate the turning year. The prayers included are both ancient and modern, both Pagan and Christian, for Celtic spirituality serves as a flexible bridge that can connect faith traditions, as well as past and present.
May the turning wheel of the year help you to find a sense of rest and peace,
even amid the chaos and catastrophe of our modern world.
I liked this one a lot, the way you have different prayers so you can actually include more people from other religions too it’s awesome, and very cool really, I like to think of myself as Anglican Wicca and this book is perfect to celebrate with both traditions without me feeling I have to leave one of them behind.
And the prayers are absolutely beautiful and full of meaning, recommended for anyone who likes spirituality in any levels.

Everything You Need to Know About Wicca, from Best-Selling Wicca Author Lisa Chamberlain
It is estimated that there are over one-million practicing Wiccans around the world today. But what is it that has made these people turn their back on the formal, structured religions that encompass the majority of the Western world?
In our modern, high-pressured world, many of us fail to take notice the sheer beauty of the natural world surrounding us. In many ways, this is a travesty: the world we live in today seems so completely distant from the one our ancestors lived in, a world where humans and nature were at one, their existence intertwined in the natural cycles of life.
Wicca is a new way of life, a religion that takes you back to a more simple time, before the invention of the high-tech gadgetry we see all around us. You will learn to live and appreciate the natural world that surrounds you, celebrating the intricate changes in the seasons and everything they bring — from the bounties of the Summer harvest, to the cold and darkness of the Winter months, as Mother Nature rests in preparation for the next explosive cycle of life that Spring brings.
This one it’s exactly as the title suggest a guide if you’re wanting to do an altar in your house and what tools are going to be needing in spells and other rituals, it’s perfect for beginners to introduce themselves into this specific part of the Wiccan religion.
