Jason Miller defines “sorcery” as somewhere between witchcraft and ceremonial magick with a focus on getting real results. That’s exactly what you will get with The Sorcerer’s Secrets: Strategies in Practical Magick. The book is also somewhere halfway between a grimoire and a training course, but it is completely filled with some amazing insight, ideas and tips that come from experience. His ideas are some that I’ve never seen in other books. This book alone completely changed how I approach giving offerings to spirits and deities, including when I don’t have anything physical to offer in the moment. Since I started taking his approach, I have yielded much stronger alliances with my spirits.
Jason approaches magick as a strategy, uniting the magickal with the practical – addressing your desired result from various angles. Best of all, he presents methods to discern whether or not your magick is working and how to troubleshoot your strategy so that it does work. If you’re interesting in assuring that you obtain real tangible results with your spells and are willing to put the work into doing so, this is definitely the book for you. There’s absolutely no fluff nor pretense in Jason’s writings. While there’s only one chapter on the issue of protection, it’s enough to get by on for the purposes of the book. But he does have a full book dedicated to the issue of Protection and Reversal Magick which is also fantastic. I also must mention that the sigils that Jason presents in the book are some of the most beautiful that I’ve come across.
