BLOOD SEX MAGIC: EVERYDAY MAGIC FOR THE MODERN DAY MYSTIC is an invitation and an awakening—a guide toward a life of connection to self and spirit, to the seen and unseen realms, and to magical traditions past and future. Born with both Mexican/Indigenous and African roots, Bri Luna honors the traditions of tarot, nature, and root working, and celebrates magic that is “from dirt and blood, jewels and bones, moon and sun.”
An intimate, illustrated collection of spells and stories to infuse our lives with ritual, history, and magic from the visionary artist and infamous witch Bri Luna, founder and creative director of “The Hoodwitch.”
Full of stunning photography and color illustrations, and brimming with incantations, spells, stories, vignettes, and warnings, BLOOD SEX MAGIC is divided into three powerful sections:
· BLOOD uncovers Bri’s roots, with passages for setting boundaries, protection, and honoring the dead
· SEX reveals the art of love magic, a celebration of the goddess, lust, and femininity, with spells for seduction and revenge
· MAGIC offers meaningful daily rituals, including those for self-love, peace, beauty, and prosperity
An instant classic and timeless resource for both new and experienced witches alike, this beautiful collection shows us how to access the untapped magic within and encourages us to see and channel that same magic in the world around us.
“The witch, bruja, healer, mother, sister, daughter, lover, artist, creative, bitch, wild woman, visionary, goddess. Transcendent of time and space.
Reclaiming power and ancestral bloodlines of magic from the heavens and the earth. I come from dirt and blood, jewels and bones, moon and sun.
I am my grandmother’s secrets, hopes, and dreams. I adorn myself in light and shadows. But do not mistake my flesh nor my worldly appearance for vanity, for everything I do is deliberate. I walk in gratitude for the ones who’ve come before me. My vessel is ancient. This skin remembers being birthed through the cosmos and rising out of the depths of the sea. Do not mistake her softness, vulnerability, sensitivity, compassion, love, resilience, or silence for weakness.
I am birthed of fire and lava of death and decay.
A huntress, a warrior, not a worrier.
I am my sister’s keeper.”

Dr. Vanessa Sinclair and Carl Abrahamsson curate the Psychoanalysis, Art & the Occult series of events, dedicated to exploring the intersections and integration of psychoanalytic theory, the creative arts, occult practices, and folk magic traditions. By inviting psychoanalysts, philosophers, artists, writers, and occult practitioners from a variety of theoretical orientations and worldviews to discuss their work, personal experiences, and areas of research interest with one another, dialogue is opened up between practitioners in fields of study that traditionally rarely engage with one another though often operate in similar and complementary ways.
