If you’re looking to get in touch with your witchy side this year (or maybe you already did a long time ago), we’ve got audiobooks for you!
This magical audiobook guide for 2024 will help you learn how to channel energy to manifest and achieve your goals, provide some tarot tips and tricks, and supply you with spells for all sorts of occasions.
Magical Tarot: Your Essential Guide to Reading the Cards
Written and narrated by Madame Pamita
Tarot was invented in the 15th century in Italy as a card game and only recently became a tool for divination (cartomancy) in the 18th century. The deck is divided into 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana cards.
Suitable for beginners, this master class on tarot offers fresh insights and discussions of the imagery, symbolism, meanings, and motifs of each of the 78 cards. Seasoned adepts and long-time tarot lovers will also find much that is new and insightful.
Madame Pamita is a Ukrainian-American witch who picked up her first Tarot deck at the age of 10. In this audiobook, she demonstrates how to use tarot as a spiritual and magical roadmap and how it may be used to attract positive people, open up opportunity, achieve success, and realize a life of fulfillment and pure happiness.
“[Tarot] helps us navigate our lives in the most efficient way to get to our goals and destinations with the minimum of traffic jams and accidents,” said Madame Pamita in an interview with Theresa Reed (who wrote a book on tarot we included below).
For an aspiring tarot reader, Madame Pamita says to practice reading for other people. Tarot reading is an art that combines your knowledge of the cards, your intuition, and your ability to create a narrative and provide guidance based on the question asked. The more readings you do, the better you’ll get!
The Cards You’re Dealt
Written by Theresa Reed, narrated by Veronica Wylie
We are not always dealt the gentlest cards in life. Sometimes we’re dealt a very difficult hand. Rather than educating you on how to use Tarot for divination, Reed shows you how to use it as a spiritual tool to help you find peace in a world that often feels chaotic.
When you’re going through a rough time, Tarot can be a source of comfort, catharsis, healing, and connection to a power greater than yourself. Doing a Tarot reading can help you tune into your instincts and make better choices. It can help you think clearly during those moments when nothing feels simple or clear. And when you realize, “I have three options and frankly, all of them are lousy and this whole situation is just really sad,” Tarot can help you find acceptance and bear the pain with a little more grace.
Tarot can be a helpful tool for sorting out emotions and finding better, healthier ways to deal with life’s ups and downs.
Reed also notes that while Tarot can be used to support therapy or counseling, they are not replacements for these services.
The Little Book of Rootwork
Written by Paris Ajana, narrated by Ella Turenne
Rootwork, also known as hoodoo or conjure, is an African-American folk magic influenced by a blend of African beliefs, traditions, and cultures.
In an article for Medium, Megan Goodwin defines rootwork or root doctoring as
a Conjure technique that involves using plants for magical work… often for security and protection against violence.
While commonly confused and used interchangeably, hoodoo is not the same as Voodoo; Voodoo is a religion while hoodoo is a broader spiritual practice.
Ajana, a descendant of a hoodoo candlemaker, helps you explore rootwork in this friendly, accessible guide to rituals, spells, and other traditional folk magic.
Bear in mind, hoodoo is a closed practice, or a spiritual path enclosed within a certain ethnic or racial background. If you do not hold African roots, you cannot partake in hoodoo. Always be mindful when looking into spiritual practices outside of your culture.
Pure Magic: A Complete Course in Spellcasting
Written and narrated by Judika Illes
A strong foundation is an important first step in witchcraft. Illes, an author of several books on magic, divination, and diverse spiritual practices, provides a practical, comprehensive guide to spellcasting for both beginners and experienced practitioners of the magical arts.
You’ll find a basic introduction to magic, a psychic glossary, a compendium of spells for any situation you may face, and a primer on the four elements, colors, and magical supplies (including minerals and botanicals), all in one place to reference as needed.

Got a baby on the way? Or want to know more about how to care for a little one in your life? This guide gives tailored advice based on the timeless wisdom of the zodiac.
Beginning with your baby’s sun sign, then diving into their whole birth chart, here’s how to use astrology to decode your little one’s personality, character traits, communication style, likes and dislikes, inspiration for happiness, and triggers for fussiness.

My most heartfelt wish is that this book leaves parents – as well as aunts, uncles, grandparents, caregivers, anyone in a child’s life – feeling more confident and equipped with knowledge that will make raising a little one more inspiring than challenging.
Written by Sophie Saint Thomas, narrated by Tanya Eby
Sex magic. Yes, you read that right. And before you shy away from the thought of combining sex and witchcraft, just know that your sexual energy can be used to channel any desired outcome, whether that’s winning the bid on the house you wanted, furthering your spiritual development, or of course, drawing a new partner into your life.
This guide to sex magic from a practicing sex-positive witch provides spells for each stage of a relationship, demonstrating how to stay balanced during love’s ups and downs. Self-love, seduction, sex, love, protection, revenge, and healing are all covered.
The Witch’s Way to Wealth
Written and narrated by Jessie DaSilva
Are you tired of hearing the same old financial success mantras and money management advice with no results and a lot of added stress? So was DaSilva.
“For years, I scoured book stores looking for a financial and spiritual tome that would give me better advice than ‘save 10% of every paycheck’ or a passive, ‘think positive’ approach that failed to acknowledge real-world obstacles like unequal pay and systemic oppression,” said DaSilva. So she decided to write her own book.
Dubbed “The Millennial Money Witch” by Forbes, DaSilva combines magic and business savvy techniques to create a how-to guide for living more abundant financial realities and give listeners a new way to think about money:
In addition to all the magical advice you could dream of, you’ll also learn some tried-and-true financial advice like how to budget in a way that doesn’t make you want to puke, how to get a higher-paying job, and how to start a profitable online business.
