Witchy Mama

From Publishers Weekly: “Filled with positive affirmations and practical tips, this reference book covers a variety of topics related to motherhood, from setting positive intentions prior to conception to keeping one’s personal and creative life alive while raising children. In casual, accessible language (“The boob fairy has come to visit, and youch!”), Marquis and Francis draw on their experiences as practitioners of magick and yoga, respectively, to share meditations to combat stressful situations, tips for setting loving boundaries, rituals to manifest desired outcomes, and stretches to relieve pregnancy aches and pains, as well as catalogs of goddesses and angels, stones, scents and oils, and colors that they deem beneficial to pregnancy and parenting. The authors honor many family situations, a variety of belief systems (“Connect to whatever entities or spirits you believe in”), and differences in personal taste (“If such imagery is a bit too fluffy and flowery for your tastes, envision something different”). The book can be read from cover to cover, but some information (such as the importance of diluting essential oils) is repeated for the benefit of readers who flip from section to section. Other important warnings include which oils and pressure points to avoid while pregnant—useful for pregnant women, soon-to-be-pregnant women, and partners to know. What makes this book magical is its wealth of sensible advice on preparing and caring for children, and its emphasis on mothers taking care of themselves and honoring their own spirits.”

Navigate the ups and downs of motherhood with a little magic! Written for mothers, by mothers, Witchy Mama offers practical and magical ideas, inspiration, and information to help mothers successfully overcome stress and exhaustion, banish bad dreams, soothe boo-boos, create a magical home, increase passion, achieve personal goals, and more.

Discover stones, scents, and colors to increase energy, reduce stress, and attract good fortune to yourself and to your family. Learn how to use simple charms and rituals to ease conflicts, banish fears, protect children, and increase happiness. Master stretching exercises, breathing techniques, and easy to learn yoga moves that will help you feel healthy, beautiful, and comfortable throughout pregnancy and beyond.

Witchy Mama contains a wealth of insight gathered from centuries of mother’s wisdom as well as from the authors’ own personal experiences. This book won’t tell you how to parent, but it will help you be happier and more successful as a parent, while still being your own person, too! Releasing May 2016 from Llewellyn Publications.

I’m also accepting pre-orders for signed copies of Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot! Just send $35 via paypal to to reserve yours today. This includes both the deck and the book, and shipping is free. These signed copies are very limited and already I only have just a few left to reserve, so act quick if you want one!
