Cunningham's Book of Shadows
Scott Cunningham's long lost Book of Shadows. Recently discovered in a battered manila envelope, this previously unpublished manuscript was penned by Scott in the early 1980s. This rare book includes original spells, rituals, and invocations and an herbal grimoire. Featured in the design are Scottﾒs actual hand-drawn signs, symbols, and runes.
More than twenty years after his passing, Scott Cunningham is still an iconic and highly regarded figure in the magical community. His books on wicca are considered classics, and his writings continue to inspire and inform those new to the craft.
Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs
Do you work magic with herbs? Do you use them in spells, for talismans or simply use their innate powers? If you don't have Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, you need to get it right away. This book has become a classic in its field. Paul Beyerl, a respected author on herbs calls it "ﾅan essential reference book by students of herbalism and magick alike ﾅ Scott's personable charm touches every pageﾅ I highly recommend this book." And Jeanne Rose, famous author of books on herbs and developer of an herbal course says "I love books like this ﾅ It is accessible, easy to read, and with its encompassing index (all too often neglected), simple to use as well." Over 200,000 people already have this book and use it frequently.
In this edition of the book (it's expanded and revised on the 15th anniversary of original publication) you will find the magical properties and folklore of over 400 herbs! You'll also find lists of herbs based on their magical powers, their genders, their planetary rulers, and more. Perhaps the most important list is the folk name cross-reference. With that information, when a recipe calls for "bramble," you'll know it needs blackberry. Or if the magic calls for "enebro," you'll know you that is juniper.
The main part of this book is the listings of the herbs. Each one includes names, associations, and magical attributions. Violets can be used for protection, luck, love, and more. Primrose is for protection and love. Garlic is for protection, healing, exorcism, lust, and prevention of theft.
This book is considered a classic. It is probably consulted more than any other book on this subject. If you want to learn the secrets of magical herbs, this book is a must!
The Complete Book of Incense,
Oils and Brews
One of the secrets of real magic is that it is controlled by the mind. The more things in your ritual to help your mind associate with your goal, the more powerful your ritual may be. Colored candles, scented oils, natural incenses, and more all add to the impact of the magic you wish to do. But how do you know which incense to burn? Is it possible to add scented oils together to get a more powerful oil? And how do you make your own appropriately-scented tools?
The answers to questions like these and hundreds more can be found in The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews by world-famous author Scott Cunningham. This is a greatly expanded and rewritten version of The Magic of Incenses, Oils and Brews. It includes over 100 new formulas, proportions for each element of the recipes (the most requested feature from his previous book), how to substitute ingredients, and much more. Besides the formulas, it also includes the exact methods of making all of these scented tools, including how to extract the essences from the herbs.
Each one of the formulas in this magic book is precise and easy to make. Do you need luck? Take 2 parts vetivert, 2 parts allspice, 1 part nutmeg, and 1 part calamus, grind them together as finely as possible, then sprinkle the powder in a circle around you, beginning and ending in the East and moving clockwise. Sit within this circle and absorb the powder's energies. Also included are other ways to use magical powders that will have you coming up with your own ideas for them, too.
There is a legion of recipes for incenses. There are three for the sun and two for consecrating talismans. There are incenses for each of the astrological signs and ones to help you study better and gain success. You'll also find incenses for each of the planetary influences. There are four for Saturn alone!
This compendium of magical lore is a vital tool for every magical person on any magical path, whether you are a beginner or an expert.
Earth, Air, Fire and Water
More Techniques of Natural Magic
A leaf from an oak tree, a wildflower, water from a sparkling stream, dirt from a cool dark cave; these are the age-old tools of natural magic. Born of the earth, possessing inherent power, they await only our touch and intention to bring their magical qualities to life.
The four elements are powerful magical tools. Using their energies, we can transform ourselves, our lives, and our world. This much-loved, classic guide offers more than seventy-five spells, rites, and simple rituals you can perform using the marvelous powers of the natural world.
Techniques of Natural Magic
The ways of magic are revealed in nature. The secrets are written in meandering streams and drifting clouds, whispered by the roaring ocean and cooling breeze, echoed through caves and rocks and forests.
When you draw a heart in the sand, call on the four winds for assistance, or ask the rain to wash away a bad habit, you are practicing earth magic. By working in harmony with nature, we can transform ourselves, our lives, and our world. This tried-and-true guide offers more than one hundred spells, rites, and simple rituals you can perform using the powerful energy of the earth.
One of the things author Scott Cunningham realized was that if Wicca was going to continue to expand, it needed to reach people who could not find groups to join. Several of the books he wrote were aimed at solitary practitioners.
Is that you? Are you working on your own? For many solitary Wiccans, the Craft is something they do for magic or for celebrations. For Scott, it was something that filled his life. Now with the help of Living Wicca, one of the vital books for solitary Pagans Wicca can fill your life too.
In this book you'll learn about magical tools, how to cast a circle, and how to raise magical power. You'll learn the meanings of over 120 Wiccan symbols and how you can magically use them. You'll discover the power of Wiccan prayers throughout the day and how you can use them to make yourself aware that the God and Goddess are everywhere.
But what I really like about this book is that Scott doesn't tell you what to think as a Wiccan, but shows you how to think as a Wiccan. The book doesn't tell you what to learn, it shows you how to learn. He shows how experimentation is important. He gives you a design for considering what others say and what you think. The importance of independent thought is stressed throughout the book.
Scott also discusses self-initiation, whether to do rituals when you are ill, what the real Wiccan mysteries are, and even ways for you to decide on a magical name.
