(copy and pasted from my blog)


If you are looking for the perfect book to introduce you to the importance of colour in your wardrobe, home, mind, and your life in general, then I highly recommend Color Magic for Beginners by Richard Webster. He is not only a great writer, but he is so wise about this topic and delves into countless subtopics, that I found myself wanting to take notes on the entire book so that I can memorize it all. It was all so fascinating; he delves into numerology, feng shui, meditation, crystals and stones, and a bunch of other topics. One of the greatest features, I think, is how often he talks about the meanings of each colour, which is important when doing any Magick that uses colour, even if you’re simply choosing a candle or making your own altar cloth. I will say, though, that the title is slightly misleading, because there is only one chapter on actual colour magick, the rest is about colour psychology. So if you are looking strictly for a book on actual colour Magick, I suggest you find another read. But other than that, this is the perfect little book to keep in your spiritual reading stash.

I almost picked this book up a couple weeks ago, but for some reason I didn't. It didn't really "want" me if that makes sense.
