The Fortune-Tellers Bible is a book I picked up on a whim when I first started revitalizing my practice as a witch. I’m constantly trying to find books that are as free as possible of cultural appropriation, racism, gender binaries and sexism. Let me tell you, it is NOT easy! However, from what I have read of this book, all the information is presented in a respectful and educational manner along with lovely color photographs that illustrate topics and steps. I also really enjoyed just the writing itself, it is very easy to read and easy to follow.
The book is chock full of great information that any diviner or oracle would love. Runes, Tarot, Scrying, Palmistry, Numerology, Face Reading, and both Western and Chinese astrology are some of the main topics of this book. This is actually my favorite book to consult on matters of palmistry and runes, which I used to really struggle with before I read this.
I highly recommend that any witch, beginner or seasoned, should acquire this book. You can find it pretty cheap on ebay, amazon and barnes and noble if you buy it used. It is such an invaluable resource and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve used it. It sits on my shelf along with only four other books that I use regularly in my craft. I’m such a picky reader when it comes to witchy books, because the vast majority of witchcraft authors are just so grossly prejudice and either sexist, racist, anti-lgbtqa, pro gender binaries, pro-cultural theft, etc. That’s why I started reviewing witchy books, really, is so that I can provide, you, my lovely readers, with good suggestions (or warnings!) in regards to the subject.
