Summary

Death welcomes everyone. This is the foundation for the veneration of Santa Muerte, or “Holy Death.” Considered to be the female personification of death, she is associated with protection and safe passage to the afterlife. She is also the patron saint of people who live on the fringes of society and often face violence and death. In recent years her constituency has expanded to include the LGBT community and people who are marginalized or whose jobs put them at significant risk of death such as military and police personnel. Santa Muerte is hailed as their potent and powerful protector, capable of delivering them from harm and even granting miracles.Santa Muerte is a complete ritual guide to working with this famous―and infamous!―Mexican folk saint. It takes us beyond the sensational headlines to reveal the truth about why Santa Muerte is so beloved by so many. Author Tracey Rollin presents simple, straightforward methods for working with Holy Death that may be used alone or easily incorporated into your own magical practice.

    Friendship is such an important part of our lives but how much do we really know about it? Do we understand how it works, what it is and what it means? 
     
    In her last book, Caroline Millington introduced us to the concept of kindfulness – blending mindfulness with being kind to yourself. Simply, remembering to treat yourself with kindness in all instances. That means setting boundaries to get the best out of your relationships and making your emotional wellbeing a priority. The Friendship Formula shows readers how to apply this concept to create and maintain longlasting, nurturing and functioning friendships. 
     
    Friendship is a beautiful thing but there are lots of difficult times in life where it can be tricky to navigate: when friendship becomes toxic; how to break up with a friend; what to do if a friend 'ghosts' you and surviving friendship betrayal; how motherhood can impact on female friendships; friendship grief and how to cope with losing a friend. This book shows you how applying kindfulness to the difficult side of friendship can help you mend your heart, move on and get the best out of those friendships that really matter.

    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Virgo the Virgin, the zodiac’s uber nitpicker. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. You will deny it all, being Virgo, and back up your denial with a truckload of incontrovertible data; but secretly you know it’s true and will be forced to scourge your soul with metaphorical clorox. Bliss.  
    What can you expect in this short, yet vitriol-packed e-volume? Prepare to break bad. Here’s the checklist  (partial - you think we give this stuff away?) 
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.
