Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In her sequel to To Ride a Silver Broomstick, Silver RavenWolf leads us to the next step in craft practice, focusing on intermediate-level magical practices, such as the proper mechanics of circle casting and 10 ways to raise power. However, To Stir a Magick Cauldron is not just a rule book, it is also a candid companion on the road to discovery. Sure, RavenWolf delves into the nitty-gritty of conjuration, but she also encourages us to see the craft as more than a dusty curiosity and reveals how to incorporate our newfound power into our 20th-century lifestyles. --Brian Patterson

From the Publisher

Publisher's Comment:

I am so very enthused about what Silver RavenWolf writes because what she is presenting in To Stir a Magic Cauldron is new generation Witchcraft -- meaning the ability to select any Wiccan tradition you wish to follow, and incorporate aspects of others into your practice. Her presentation of this inclusive, non-dogmatic approach to Wicca has made Silver one of the most popular writers today.
Another reason for her popularity is her writing style. She doesn't tell you what to do, but instead shares her knowledge and experiences, making her books some of the most entertaining around. Who but Silver would describe the altars used by followers of the Caledonii tradition as not "brimming with too many goodies?" Her folksy style is more like that of a friend sitting next to you than a teacher on a pedestal. She's great!
Even though this book is fun to read, it isn't just fluff. In fact, I can't think of any book that has so much information about various ways to cast a circle. There's even more about different styles of magic. And if you want to check your knowledge of Wicca, there is a 158-question test. If you can answer all of the questions you really are an expert on the Craft!
For years, Silver has been involved in networking. She uses this knowledge to discuss various national organizations such as the Witches Anti-Discrimination Lobby, the International Wiccan/Pagan Press, and a raft of Pagan newsletter, publishers and services. She also lists some occult suppliers and internet listings.
When you get this book, browse through it first. Grab what you like, and use it right away. Then take some time to read through the entire book and savor her personable style and delightful humor. This is a book that will be on your "must have" list!

Customer Reviews

It's not your personal journal, meant to boost your own ego.
Jo
I find it strange that all these people who keep bashing Silver keep reading all her books just so they can tell us how bad they are.
Sparkle
I would recommend this book for the novice or the experienced practitioner.

Upon reading this book I finally figured out exactly why so many Wiccans don't like Silver Ravenwolf. It's clear to me now. When I read To Ride A Silver Broomstick I thought it was about average. It turns out the fact that she actually discussed the religion in that book kind of blurred out some of the stuff that's so offensive.

By reading To Stir a Magic Cauldron a learned that Silver's philosophy seems to be "If it looks pretty, do it." This first became obvious when she discribed a ritual that used glitter. Glitter? Those little cloured metal fleks that you get at craft stores? I had no idea that attuning yourself with nature was so commercial.

I think the most amazingly hypocritical thing in the book was a little rant she had about people sending her letters about how they want to study wicca, but have no money, and would like her help. She goes off on a tagent about how money can't buy faith and can't make you a witch. Yeah, ok. This is true. She doesn't address the reasons why someone might believe that money is necessary. Ok, fine, allow her her little rant. She finishes her rant and on the NEXT PAGE she is talking about doing magic using the colours red, white, and black. She suggests going to a florist and buying roses of these colours. Whoa! back up! Why would anyone who reads her books think you need money to be a witch? She constantly suggests BUYING stuff.

If doing the rose thing were really a good idea, wouldn't it be better to plant rose bushes of the appropriate colours? Admittedly, this is also not cheap, but it's more cost effective AND has that whole being closer to nature thing that some wiccans are into... While discussing ritual, Silver believes that the ritual itself is all that's really important.

A necessary book for every Wiccan. I wasn't expecting to learn much because I've read hundreds of books and have been practicing for years. Was I WRONG. This book gave me more encite to sharpened my 'spiritual' tools in the first 30 pages. Her explanations are clear, her techniques simply spoken. (The personal stories only add to the feeling of being taught with consideration and patience) The 'Work' sections are, I feel, necessary to truly living this life. Its a book to take you levels deeper, to teach the things you can't learn without being an apprentice of a skilled teacher.(Like Silver) Or in a coven. I suggest anyone who wants to begin learning the ways of Wicca,(Since we never stop learning) to start with Scott Cunninghams; Wicca, A guide for the Solitary practioner & Living Wicca, A further Guide to the Solitary Practioner and Silver's 'To Ride a Silver Broomstick,To Stir... and To Light...' Silver's books are a foundation I wish I'd had 8 years ago.

If you just started in Wicca/Witchcraft there is six books that are a must for your Library: 1. Wicca a Guide For The Solitary Practitioner (Scott Cunningham) 2. Living Wicca A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Scott Cunningham) 3. To Ride A Silver Broomstick (Silver RavenWolf) 4. To Stir A Magick Cauldron (Silver RavenWolf) 5. To Light A Sacred Flame (Silver RavenWolf) and 6. Bucklans's Complete Book Of Witchcraft (Raymond Buckland) These six books are a most for any Wiccan/Witch. Just read them and take what you need and forget the rest. I have bought all of Scott Cunningham books that are out at this time and I just bought Slver RavenWolf three books that I have mention and She is great she is a compliment to Scott work! When I grew in the Craft I needed books to help me and RavenWolf books has help me to do just that GROW in the CRAFT. Thanks MS. RavenWolfP.S. It does not matter what name she used to write her books SHE is GREAT!

This book is the very best so far ! I read "To Ride a Silver Broomstick! To Ride...was my very first book on Wicca and it helped me tremendously. Now after 2 years in the Craft I am ready to move on to intermediate study, and "To Stir a Magick Cauldron is by far the best book for intermediate study of the Craft. Silver is obviously a talented Writer and Wiccan Witch. Make sure you pay attention to her "unique" perspective on the Elementals in this book ! And make sure to buy Llewellyn's Yearly Almanacs because Silver is regular contributor to it and always writes excellent articles on everything Wiccan. Some people complain that she writes like a MOM, or she writes like she is talking to children. Please understand that Silver IS A MOM ! and obviously dedicated to her family, and once a mom, always a mom no matter who you are talking to. In short, buy the book ! You won't regret it!
P.S. Its too bad Christians have nothing better to do with their time than to come in here, and pretend they are Pagans and give bad book reviews to our most celebrated authors. Its so easy to tell when a christian is "Pretending". If you want an idea of what I am talking about, check out the two reviews titled , "stir, stir," Blessed Be Silver !
