Summary

A wise, witchy, and welcoming guide to living life magically.

Mya Spalter has spent years among candles, herbs, cats, and spells as an employee at New York City’s oldest occult shop, Enchantments. Since it would get crowded in there if all of you visited, this audiobook will be your guide to its secrets and stories; in the process, Mya will introduce you to some mystical concepts you can use to build spells and rituals that resonate with your own personal style, including:

  • Create and maintain altars: Even people who aren’t spiritually inclined seem to be able to get down with the beneficial function of an altar as a place to model beauty and balance in their lives. It’s aspirational. 
  • Save your love magic for yourself: Because casting a love spell on someone else is pushy and far too easy to mess up. 
  • Clean your filthy apartment: Fine, maybe you make your bed every day, but Mya’s talking about the kind of grime you can’t necessarily see. 
  • Money magic for need, not greed: Hint: It starts with tipping well; it doesn’t pay to be miserly when asking the universe for abundance.

Mya reveals the power of colors (Louboutins wouldn’t have the same status if their soles were lavender), the keys to banishing unfriendly spirits (with cleansing rituals or even a dance party), and invaluable instructions in the timeless arts of astrology, tarot, and finding a parking spot downtown.

Immerse yourself in audiobook and enchant your own life!

Advance praise for Enchantments:

“Hilariously conversational, deceptively deep... Enchantments will blow your mind and make you laugh while imparting expert knowledge of witchcraft and why it’s so needed today.” (Natasha Lyonne, actress and producer)

“Imagine that your best friend, a supremely cool, funny, and irreverent person, is also a witch willing to educate and inspire you toward your own witchy practice with humor, sass, and intelligence. This book is magic - literally!” (Michelle Tea, author of Modern Tarot)

“Part memoir, part recipe book, and part poetry collection, Enchantments lets readers in on the great secret of all witchcraft - that being a witch is about being free to be yourself.” (Dorothea Lasky, author of Milk and cocreator of Astro Poets)

“We can all use more magic in our lives in these trying times, and Enchantments will help us get started.” (Kimya Dawson, singer/songwriter, The Moldy Peaches)

soooooo great

I've read lots of similar books - this one is written with a spirit that I could relate with so well. I almost want my husband to read it, so he'd better understand what's going on in the house, haha.

A delight

Heard of this on episode 33 of the WitchWave podcast, in which the author is interviewed (which gives a good picture of what you’re in for, if you want more than the 5 minute sample on audible). The author/narrator sounds like a cross between Scarlett Johansson and Suzy Jackson reading Dory Fantasmagory, which is probably such a specific intersection as to only be meaningful to me, but I mean it as praise. Lots of swears (just a heads up). The only thing that would make this audiobook better is if they labeled the chapters (please do this). Loosely, they are as follows: 1 Alters, 2 Colors, 3 Candles, 4 Plants, 5 Stars, 6 Wheel of the Year, 7 Collaborative Magic, 8 Housekeeping, 9 Attraction Magic, 10 Money, 11 Divination, 12 Astrology
