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!

This was a slender little volume that I enjoyed reading. It is filled with"everyday magic" that has been passed down through the generations from atime when pagan beliefs were widely held and commonly practiced, even bypeople who embraced other faiths and beliefs. I was amazed to see smallsuperstitions and rituals and ways of life that I remember my grandmothers(on both sides) believed in and practiced, very likely completely unawarethat they have their roots in witchcraft or pagan rituals. It doesn't gointo anything in any great depths, but it did serve to remind me of a lot ofthings I took for granted from my childhood. When you come right down to it,all religions and beliefs have common threads and this little volume was anice little read. It was well written with wit and humor and I enjoyed it.It gets a 5.

Very nice little book. A quick read and easy things that you can incoroporate into your home and every day life. Nothing ground-breaking here, but it is a comfortable return to Scott Cunningham for those who haven't read him in a while.

More of a book to read to feel comfort in the faith than anything, this book does well to remind Wiccans that their faith doesn't end when the circle is opened. Another good book for kitchen witches.

I've not quite finished the book yet, but so far I've found it to be very helpful and a joy to read. There is a large amount of information provided in the book with useful chapter organization. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in straightforward, easy to do house magic in addition to house magic related lore.

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.
