Aphrodite's Priestess

Aphrodite’s Priestess

by Laurelei Black

Laurelei Black, a contemporary priestess of Aphrodite, found a desperate lack of resources available to the women and men who are called to work with any of the Goddesses of Love from the Mediterranean or Middle Eastern precincts. Writing from her own experience and training, she makes this first guidepost available to those who would walk the Path of Love.

Cult of Aphrodite

Cult of Aphrodite: Festivals and Rites of the Golden One

by Laurelei Black

This liturgical compilation is the first of its kind -- offering a wealth of well-researched rituals and religious festivals in honor of a single Hellenic deity. Drawing on resources that span the ancient world, Black and the Cult of Aphrodite Asteria present immediately usable tools for worshiping the Goddess of Love and Beauty.

Witches Key to the Legion

The Witches' Key to the Legion

by Laurelei Black

This book is the first to address Witches in regard to the Legion, and it is unique in its admonition of the spirit torture that has been the hallmark of previous editions. On these pages, you will not find tedious conjurations designed to threaten and bully spirits into cooperation. Instead, you will find a reasonable, direct approach to working with the 72 spirits of the Legion.

Temple of Love

Temple of Love

by Laurelei Black

She was the ancient world's most famous female poet, writing lyrical verse for the men and women she loved. In this historical fiction offering by Laurelei Black, see the life of Sappho through the lens of Aphrodite's priestesshood.

Liber Qayin

Liber Qayin

by Laurelei & Natalie Black

This prophetic work is channeled from the Witch Father, Tubal-Qayin, and the Witch Mother, who is both Lilith and Ishtar. Hear now the Gospel of Qayin, the wisdom he brings to all Witches in this New Aeon.

Book of Shadows

Blade & Broom's Book of Shadows

by Laurelei Black

These BOS pages (available as PDF printables from Etsy) are like no others that are available anywhere -- on or offline. These leaves from the Book of Shadows are pulled directly from the American Folkloric Witchcraft Tradition and are published exclusively by Asteria Books. You can find them in the Blade & Broom Etsy shop

Asteria OWLS

Occult & Witchcraft Learning Series (OWLS)

by Laurelei (& Natalie) Black

Asteria Books is proud to offer what will be an extensive digital and print library of curriculum guides for students of the Craft and occult airts. We understand that novice practitioners are yearning for material in comprehensible portions over a potentially wide range of topics, which is precisely what we provide. As an OWLS reader, you can choose from lesson titles in any course to create a comprehensive Book of Shadows or Grimoire. Furthermore, each OWL book comes with its own 10-question quiz and answer-key, allowing you to check your knowledge when you finish. OWLS are a great way to build a reference library, begin (or end) a Book of Shadows, or plan a Craft 101 class for your coven.
