Publisher's 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!

Critic Reviews

“Hilariously conversational, deceptively deep, and phenomenally illustrated, 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. Wouldn’t that be the greatest? Thankfully, Mya Spalter has written Enchantments, a book infused with jokes, real talk, occult know-how, stylish lingo, and serious best-friendliness. Enchantments has totally jump-started my own practice, and I am feeling the results daily. 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. In a spirit of collaboration and community and with limber humor and wit, Mya Spalter empowers all of us to be the best magical practitioners we can be. A future classic for both new and experienced witches, or anyone in the mood for a little divination.” (Dorothea Lasky, author of Milk and co-creator of Astro Poets)

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

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.

absolutely fantastic!

I've gone through audibles entire collection of wicca/witchcraft books. this one is by and large my absolute favorite! so much great information, delivered in a hilarious conversational tone. never taking herself too seriously, while also being properly respectful to the craft.
if you're considering buying this one or a different witchy book - CHOOSE THIS ONE! you will not regret it! ofc, the more reading and learning the better :). I'd recommend this over any Scott Cunningham any day.

fun read

This is a fun read with a wide overview. It is not for everyone. It's like a friend talking with you about something she's passionate about. My only concern is that there seems to be a bit of cultural appropriation type of stuff, that may lead newbies to try to pick up practices from closed religions.

I listened to it twice....

I really enjoyed this audio book. So much so that I listened to it twice on one long road trip.

Mya obviously respects the Craft without taking it too seriously - or maybe that's the wrong way to say it. She encourages each of us to follow our own path, even if that path isn't rigorously structured. Her performance is great, too, like having a conversation with a friend who wants to tell you about her cool job. She also has a way of mentioning Enchantments often without it feeling like an infomercial (though I will definitely stop by next time I'm in NYC).

THE BEST

I love this book! I found it to be the perfect blend of informative and entertaining. I also appreciated the author’s undogmatic (non-dogmatic?)(meh, you get it) attitude toward magic. The author is also the best performer I’ve ever listened to for an audible book, and I’ve been at this a while.

loved it.

its strange when I first started to listen I was not sure if this was something I could get into. I waited and listened and let it unfold. the more I listened the more I loved it. Its so informative and easy to understand. Mya is not only funny but a great teacher. I would recommend to all on the spiritual path.

Loved this so much!!

I rarely write, if ever, write reviews. But I feel compelled to for this audiobook. I do a lot of driving so audiobooks and podcasts are important in my life! I could listen to Mya Spalter read the newspaper. The poetry in her voice and her dulcet tones fully support her writing. The content is informative and makes 'the craft' accessible for anyone who gets hung up on detail (ie obtaining ingredients not easy to get on the other side of the world!). She particularly supports catering rituals to support what you already have, and what you can find in your own home and supermarket. So much fun to listen to, and her stories about the shop are very entertaining. LOVED THIS!! I hope Mya reads this review!!
