Books

I have a number of writing projects currently underway: upcoming witchcraft-related titles, a witchy young adult novel, and more. I’m also a regular contributor to several Llewellyn annuals, including the Witches’ Companion, Llewellyn’s Magical Almanac, the Witches’ Calendar, and Llewellyn’s Spell-A-Day Almanac. I also enjoy creating zines and chapbooks, which I periodically make available through my Etsy shop.

The Witch’s Path: Advancing Your Craft at Every Level

My forthcoming The Witch’s Path will be available in fall of 2021. The Witch’s Path is a guide for advancing witches of all types, focusing on how to move beyond plateaus, out of ruts, and to conquer burnout and overwhelm. Whether you’re a relative beginner feeling bogged down by confusion, an established practitioner wondering if there’s anything more out there, or a community leader who just needs a breather, The Witch’s Path has something to offer. Its ideas and techniques are applicable for traditional witches, Wiccans, secular witches, and eclectic practitioners, regardless of what your particular hurdles are in this moment.

Traditional Wicca: A Seeker’s Guide

My first book, Traditional Wicca: A Seeker’s Guide, is designed to function as both an introduction to the structure and culture of initiatory Wicca, and as a guidebook for those who are interested in pursuing training in those systems. It is not a Wicca 101.

Traditional Wicca: A Seeker’s Guide is available wherever books are sold! Snag your copy from Amazon or directly from Llewellyn Worldwide.

“A masterful gem of insight and wisdom, Traditional Wicca: A Seeker’s Guide reveals the time-honored practices of initiatory Wicca, thought all but lost by many, but hidden like so many occult secrets in plain sight. Drawing a clear and respectful distinction between eclectic Wicca and its older more traditional sibling, Thorn Mooney takes us on a personal journey exploring the powers and the pitfalls of the initiatory inner court, revealing the persistence of a thriving and dynamic Craft.”―Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt and Between

“Traditional Wicca is a unique and important book. It’s amazing to me that in over 70 years of publishing on the subject of Wicca, nothing like this book has ever been written! . . . The chapter on initiation is, by itself, worth the cover price. If you want to understand what people mean by ‘traditional Wicca,’ whether or not you’re seeking it, this is the one book you must read.”―Deborah Lipp, Wiccan high priestess and author of Tarot Interactions

“Thorn writes with obvious sincerity, with feeling, and from experience. Her book covers everything from defining Witchcraft, through the workings of a coven, to actual initiation and beyond. She warns that Wicca is not for everyone and–I am personally delighted to see–includes a chapter on recognizing ‘red flags’ when first contacting others . . . especially those who might claim to be more than they actually are. This book is the quintessential guide for the true, sincere seeker.”―Raymond Buckland, author of Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft
