Take Back Your Power and Unleash It on the World
Filled with transformative stories of powerful women from legend and history, this book explores themes that witches, heretics, and warriors confront in a patriarchal world. Join the fight against the status quo by learning how to invoke your own defiant female ancestors and the lessons they represent. Each chapter examines a topic like standing tall in your beliefs, finding your voice, embracing your sexuality, and loving your body.
This book will inspire you through the stories of Circe, Anne Boleyn, Marie Laveau, Mary Magdalene, Jeanne D'Arc, Salome, Boudicca, Moving Robe Woman, and Harriet Tubman. Phoenix LeFae also shares hands-on practices— including rituals, crafts, and meditations—designed to support you as you connect to your inner rebel. Learn how to create shrines, connect to your community, work with essential oils, and more as you find and embrace your own personal power.
"This book is not just for those who identify as women, it is for anyone who is tired of hiding in the shadows, living small, or letting others control their lives.

Read this book, and you'll be inspired, motivated, and activated in all the best ways."—Madame Pamita, author of Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft and The Book of Candle Magic
"Once again Pheonix Le Fae's unique and beautiful view of the world around her has brought forth great wisdom. Never would I have ever thought to find Marie Laveau, Mary Magdalene and Boudicca all in the same book, yet here they all are, power houses of femininity, teaching us that it's OK to be rebellious, nonconformist and absolutely magical; showing us how we can own our witchdom and encouraging us to stick a finger up to the mundane. Witches, Heretics and Wild Women is empowering, insightful, honest, and it encourages us to be the same."—Tara Sanchez author of Urban Faery Magick
