This week's featured book is Inspiring Creativity Through Magick by Astrea Taylor! Astrea is a frequent guest on my podcast Pagan's Witchy Corner.
Art is inherently magickal and you, as an artist, are a magician who can ritualize any creative endeavor. Sharing an impressive collection of spells, rituals, deities, and lore, Astrea Taylor helps you bring to life the story, painting, sculpture, or music you’ve been dreaming about.
This book is designed to guide you through the entire creative process. You’ll draw inspiration from spirits and the four elements to complete your rough draft, and then use the principles of alchemy to transform it into a masterpiece. Astrea also provides deep insight on releasing your art into the world, resting between projects, and persevering through hard times. From handling criticism to awakening the guiding spirit of your art, this book shares numerous exercises to get your creativity flowing and keep it going.

“In Inspiring Creativity Through Magick, Astrea Taylor displays a deep working knowledge of metaphysical guides and the spirits of creativity. It’s a wonderful exploration of inspiration and divine assistance within the creative act and a goldmine for breaking through creative blocks!”―Laova and Eric Lingen, hosts of The Spirit World Center podcast
“From the airy head space where creative endeavors begin to…the grounding effects that earth provide, there is a magical, elemental approach presented in creating an artist’s rough draft in the first half of the book. In the latter half, Astrea explores art as an egregore that takes on a life of its own, allowing the creator to refine, release, and recharge once the work is complete. With rituals and exercises throughout, this is a true work of art that all practitioners of any craft would benefit from exploring.”―Vincent Higginbotham author of How Witchcraft Saved my Life and Thrifty Witchery
