Additionally, it's a book which acknowledges the stakes are higher in the world we're currently navigating, and it addresses the possibilities of failure in doing anything worth doing, as well as how to deal with it. This is not a book about ephemeral ideas and looking pretty; she respects that you're at the very least an experienced magickal practitioner and you're here to get stuff done. This is a book about personal responsibility and owning the outcomes of your life and your Great Work. As she states much more eloquently right from the get-go, glamour is about finding and using what you do have in order to fully actualize your life.
Also, Its fun and funny and easy to read. Take notes, do the experiments, and learn to operate in the world we actually have as the person you actually want to be.
The exercises (rites) presented are well-organized, and go from self exploration, to practical applications, support, and maintenance. I approached these as meditations with a bit of ritual, since that’s more in my background than witchcraft is. I found it refreshing that Castellano was not afraid to address the dark side of how someone may perceive/identify themselves and even helps to explore glamour in qualities not typically considered glamourous, such as melancholy and shyness. She also addresses drawbacks such as anxiety and failure. Much of her tone is influenced by feminism as well, and I enjoyed how she used historical examples where women were able to use glamour to influence, seize, and protect political power and personal gain.
This book weaves together history, pop culture, experience, and sage advice. Speaking to the reader as a fellow “other” is heavy-handed and off-putting at times, but Castellano’s voice is familiar, relatable, and light-hearted. Her overall message rings true: Glamour is in you, no matter who you are! Now go out and use it.
This book is a must read for novices just coming to the world of glamour magic as well as experienced practitioners looking to broaden their skill and knowledge base.
