I have to admit that I do like to look at books full of spells. They give me all sorts of ideas for my own magick. Books full of spells, however, are almost a dime a dozen. Few of them are really worth a spot on the average Pagan or magician's bookshelf.

Everyday Magic is one of those rare books full of spells that is well worth the money and the shelf space. Morrison has created over 300 spells and short rituals for modern life. They are grouped in categories which are arranged in alphabetical order. Here are some of categories of spells in this book: abuse, automobiles, communication, creativity, fear, fertility, friendship, habits, justice, lost items, money, nightmares, pets, protection, stress, traffic, and vision.

These spells all use easy-to-find ingredients. No mummy dust or expensive gemstones. Many spells use kitchen herbs, common stones you can find in almost any rock shop, and other items you probably have in your house. There's even a chapter on using modern tools like blenders and coffee makers to make incenses and oils.

While Everyday Magic does not require one to be an expert in magick to make use of it, it is not an introductory volume on magick. You will not find detailed chapters aimed at the complete beginner on what magick is or how to cast a spell. The author assumes that you already know these things.

Many people will look down their nose at this book because they believe that the best spells are the ones you create for yourself. While that is probably true, this book provides many ideas to base your own spells on. It also provides workable spells for those who cannot, will not, or simply do not wish to create their own. It's probably one of the best books of its type currently available. If you ever cast magick, Dorothy Morrison's Everyday Magic is a worthy addition to your library.
