It is packed with very interesting information.

What I like about this almanac is the calendar for the lunar cycles, astrology and the suggestions for each day.

Format: Paperback
I am pleased to say that this is exactly what I was looking for in an Almanac -- something that simply tells me the phases of the moon, important dates, etc. with other charming articles, poems, and artwork for my reading and viewing pleasure. No irritating fluff thrown in there like in the Llewellyn Almanacs, just straight to the point information and articles worth your time. The reason this almanac is a dollar more expensive is because it's the better almanac. Whether you're an experienced witch or you've only been one for a day, this almanac will help you keep track of things!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By NYC Webwitch on September 5, 2001
Format: Paperback
If you are a beginner, I would certainly get a hold of this book, if for no other reason than to make yourself familiar with what is and is not contained within, just for knowledge’s sake. This slight booklet consists of a small number of brief poems, recipes, tips, and articles from witches around the world, all concerning historical and practical points of interest relating to the craft. While I, personally, find some of this information interesting, on the whole, I would not consider this work a stimulating read, nor an excessively useful reference. Though the three to four page explanation of the lunar cycles is quite useful to the beginner, this is something that is contained every year, so, for this, it need not be purchased annually. I have found the horoscope to be moderately accurate every year, however. I guess what I’m saying is that, by the time you buy this book, and possibly pay shipping for it, if you may not find more than four or five pages of particular use and interest, it may not be worth it. On the other hand, it is not excessively expensive, and some people with different interests than I might find this work fascinating. Decide for yourselves. Pick up this year’s! Please note, that if you are looking for an actual “daily almanac”, you are much better going for Llewellyn’s Magical Almanac, which actually provides day to day report of moon cycle, planetary alignment, suggested incenses, colors, etc.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely adore this little "book" and look forward to it every spring for the new year. It is chock full of little tidbits and lore that is an absolute delight to peruse with its "woodcut" graphics that are detailed and lovely.
First of all, there is always a section on what's been happening in the news and the news always has to do with something metaphysical or spiritual. For instance, one passage had new information on "Nessie" the Lock Ness and the second had interesting speculation that an armor dealer in Italy had possibly found Joan of Arc's suit of armor because it literally fit his 13-year-old girl. I love these little news clips because they are interesting and informative.
There is always a republishing of a fairy tale of some sort and is usually the original form with an explanation of the moral. Otherwise, there are always various articles and information. For instance, one passage had to do with the mystical origin of "Scarborough Fair," by Simon and Garfunkel, one had information on the Egyptian God Set and his origin in Egyptian lore, one had recipes for "moon cookies" for a summer feast, another had information on the different moons and what they represent, another had information on the superstition of the black cat throughout history and how the U.S. is the only one that regards it as bad luck, the list is various and endless... but one thing is for sure: it's an almanac and it reads like one; informative, advising and entertaining.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Christy on October 5, 2000
Format: Paperback
I really found this book helpful as a fairly new Witch. I find that you still have to do more research to find out what the moon phases mean and but the basic helpful information is clearly laid out for you. You can use the information how you want to. There is alot of other information in the book including horoscope, recipies, folklore and AMERICAN (not Canadian) weather predictions. - I found it well worth the price. I have not read "Llewellyn's Magical Almanac" but plan to compare the 2 books.

This is the first time I have read The Witches' Almanac - in previous years I have had the Llewelyn Magical Almanc -- This one is so much better! It has none of the sugar and fluff so common to Llewelyn and provides a great compilation of stories and lore. The calendars are in an easy-to-understand format and I particularly enjoyed the in-dept "year ahead" horoscopes. If you usually buy the Llewlyn Magical Almanac I strongly suggest you take a look at this one also - you may change your purchase habits !

Also, there is always a detailed two-page spread on each horoscope for the year as well as a weather almanac (which I find disturbingly accurate, I must confess,) as well as moon phases and a calendar for the entire year with advice for certain days, famous people's birthdays and moon phases.
This is a wonderful little book.
