The Satanic Witch (earlier titled The Compleat Witch) is a book by Anton LaVey. It is a how-to guide for the manipulation and seduction of men by women, collecting a body of advice on lesser magic. Although written for women, many male Satanists read it because it contains information about lesser magic and insight into the female mind.

It was first published by Dodd, Mead and Company, in 1971 as The Compleat Witch. It was republished by Feral House in 1989 with an introduction by Zeena LaVey; and again in 2003 with a new introduction by Peggy Nadramia and afterword by Blanche Barton.

One of the most important concepts LaVey introduced in The Satanic Witch was the LaVey Synthesizer Clock, an improved form of somatotyping incorporating a fourth basic type to the three already in common use (by addition of the "pure feminine" type, opposite to the "pure masculine" or mesomorphic type). The LaVey Synthesizer Clock postulates that all persons occupy a set body and personality type, placed along varying degrees of the four types proposed ("clock position"), and that ideal friends and lovers will represent the opposite personality/body type by position on the LaVey Synthesizer Clock.
