5. Moon Spells - Diane Ahlquist

This book is not about astrology in the strictest sense of the term, but rather about the lunar cycle, the different phases of the moon and the role of these influences on our daily life. We could define it as a "book of magic" that explains how to use the phases of the moon to fulfill one's desires through a series of rituals. Candles, crystals and incense are just a few items you'll need, and the book will walk you through how to use them. In addition, the last chapters also discuss the importance of the role of the Moon in astrology and its meaning.
