Color, Form and Magic
Bring the magic of color and form into your everyday life.
Color and form are powerful—and not just for creative work. When used purposefully, color and shape are tools we can use to help us manifest, attract the energy we want, and become our best selves. In this accessible guide, designer and intuitive Nicole Pivirotto breaks down properties of shapes and colors, the basics of getting started with magic, and spell ideas that use color and form, like color meditation and altar building. Whether you have an existing magic practice, want to develop one, or want to use the power of color and form in your creative work, this book is an essential companion to the magic of aesthetics. With gorgeous holographic foil on the cover and book page edges, it is also a beautiful gift for any contemporary seeker with a love of bold color and design.
ACCESSIBLE APPROACH TO MAGIC: This book approaches magic as a flexible and empowering practice for manifestation, healing, and self-care. And there's no need to have any special tools to get started. This book shows how visual elements we interact with every day—color, shapes, and symbols—can help you to manifest and become your best self. It's a perfect entry to magic practice for creative types and a unique guide for those looking to infuse an existing practice with more color and creativity.
SPELL IDEAS: In addition to overviews of the properties of colors, a library of magical symbols, and an introduction to magic practice, this book offers spell ideas to help you achieve a desired energy or state. All the spells are simple and most are easy to perform with everyday materials. Etch a candle with a symbol and burn to release its energy around you; or, create a custom symbol personalized to your unique intention. This book encourages getting creative, and offers plenty of practical examples to illustrate how you can tailor these spells to your interests and intentions.
DISPLAY-WORTHY OBJECT: With shining foil-stamped accents, vibrant illustrations and photography, and a prismatic design, this book is a stunning addition to the coffee table or nightstand, and it makes a gorgeous gift.
