Fresh, fierce, and unapologetically feminist, this is both guidebook and rallying cry: an intersectional and inclusive magical praxis that resists, disrupts, and opens the door to nourishment, abundance, and transformation—for readers of Psychic Witch and The Spell Book for New Witches
In New Moon Magic, Missing Witches authors Risa Dickens and Amy Torok offer Witchy practices to change your life and reshape the world, without falling prey to the commercialization that belies the true heart—and power—of magic.
Witchcraft is praxis: how we do what we believe, and how we make those beliefs manifest. New Moon Magic is an offering to all witches, honoring the Craft’s roots in centuries of empowerment, survival, and resistance—despite capitalism’s attempts to co-opt and dilute its practice.
Here, Dickens and Torok reclaim tools of witchcraft as the ways and means of enchantment, imbued with magic that resists commodification and capitalism. The authors introduce 13 New Moon practices, each paired with a Witch who embodies the Craft:
- Potions with Cerridwen and St. Hildegard von Bingen
- Divination with Lozen and Harriet Tubman
- The Garden with Mayumi Oda
- Ritual & Ceremony with Genesis P-Orridge
- The Circle with Audre Lorde

“With their first book, Amy and Risa invited us all on a journey of story and magic that followed the rhythm of the Sun. Now we are invited to make another journey; to see ourselves, others, and our tools through the ever-changing and potent phases of the Moon. Come join us, join Risa and Amy, and let us all make magic together!”
—Jinkx Monsoon, Queen of All Queens
“Missing Witches weave together magical history, the potent present, and futurism to offer us inspiration and resources. This is a beautiful guide to healing that emphasizes that healing comes in many forms and that reminds us that we are not alone.”
—Sarah Faith Gottessdiener, creator of Moonbeaming, the Many Moons workbooks, and author of The Moon Book
“This book is more than a book. It is an ecosystem teeming with modern witches, ancestral agitators, anarchic seeds, and embodied practices. This book channels the moon’s medicine of mutability and movement. There is a medicine available for every type of weather and every type of body.”
—Sophie Strand, author of The Flowering Wand
“Imagine, for a moment, entering a portal where you are encircled and empowered with the words, the magic, and the wisdom of historical and modern Witches.

Open the portal of the pages of New Moon Magic to embrace ritual, to unlock the stories of spellcasting, to rejoice in rising up together to create change. Amy and Risa’s book contains the juicy secrets and stories of personal Witchcraft to cultivate your own practice in a way that is authentic to you. In New Moon Magic, you are the spell!”
—Veronica Varlow, author of Bohemian Magick
“This book is a welcome reminder that we need neither products nor permissions to make meaning, to build community, to exercise our power to shape our spiritual and physical lives. From celebrating our connection with nature to reaffirming our fundamental right to occupy space in the world, New Moon Magic is a timely message of empowerment and resistance.”
—Jarod K. Anderson, creator of The CryptoNaturalist
"I can’t wait for you to experience this book for yourself and to learn and grow in your practice and join the cause of resistance from capitalism.”
