Synopsis: Pretty much what the title says. This book is full of spells and rituals for the home. It includes spells of protection, for luck, for good health, and many more.
Opinion: I adore this book. If you want to have magic in every aspect of your life, this is the book for you. It even has protection talismans/spells for your car. There are sections on housework, gardens, cooking, dreaming, bathing, pets, garages, moving, household purification, omens and portents, and household altars. All this is written in Scott Cunningham’s usual style, which I think is wonderful. I love reading his work. His are the only books, on this subject, that I have ever read cover to cover. There are others that I use as much, but, in my opinion, his is such a warm and welcoming style it always draws me in. This book is not as Wicca-y as some of his others, which I also like. And it’s full of information on how to live a magical life and historical information pertaining to customs we see in our everyday life.
Scott Cunningham wrote more than thirty books, both fiction and nonfiction.
David Harrington is a folklorist and student of the magical arts.
