Meet the Author

Scott Cunningham practiced magic actively for over twenty years.

Scott's books reflect a broad range of interests within the New Age sphere, where he was very highly regarded. He passed from this life on March 28, 1993, after a long illness.

David Harrington lives in Chula Vista, California and has a long-term interest in the mysteries of household magic.

Read an Excerpt

Frankly, I'm surprised nobody wrote this book sooner. There are many books about the magic in places all over the world, but leave it to Scott Cunningham and David Harrington to write a book about the magic in the place where you spend the most time: your home. The Magical Household is so rich with information about everything from purification to protection that I hardly know where to begin.

Every part of your home, inside and outside, is covered in this book. Outside are the garage and garden, windows and doorways. This book gives you ways to bring in the good — health, love, peace, wealth, friends — and keep out the bad — disease, accidents, poverty, unwanted intruders.

Magical tips are given for each room inside the house, too. Rituals, incenses, and techniques to provide you with what is needed in your life are described. Whether it is the kitchen or living room, bedroom or den, you will find magical advice and folklore that can bring magic into your life.

Sometimes the magic is as easy as moving furniture and hanging an herb above a door. Other times it might be a brief rite combined with candles of a particular color. It's all described here.

The information comes from all over the world. Some comes from Europe, other pieces come from Asia, Hawaii, and even ancient Egypt. The book is serious, but it is also fun. Scott and David write so well that it seems more like they are talking to you than writing a book.

The Magical Household is for anybody who lives anywhere. That means me. That means you. So right now I'm going to lean back in my oak chair, get up from my teak desk, go over to an oak bookcase and go through this book again. That's where you'll find what these different types of wood can magically provide. This book is a gem!

    Interesting Read

    I enjoyed reading about all the superstitions and lore surrounding the home. There is not much in the way of rituals or spells in the book. I did find a lot of useful information like what type of wood to burn in the home, what kind of rugs should you use and in which direction you should sleep in.
