The Magick Toolbox:The Ultimate Compendium for Choosing and Using Ritual Implements & Magickal Tools
Author: Carl Neal [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Category: Magick Level: Beginner
The Magick Toolbox is the first consumers’ guide to over 20 categories of magickal tools that Wiccans and pagans use for magick and ritual. And who better than to write this book than Carl Neal who has been making and selling magickal tools for nearly 10 years? Here he reveals his own trade secrets for creating, selecting (buying) , caring for, and using magickal implements. Full of down-to-earth advice, such as why you should you buy a cast-iron cauldron—or build your own stone cauldron—and how to use woodworking tools to create intricate pentacles, Neal also helps readers first understand how they plan to use each tool. Understanding a tool’s use helps to determine what kind of material is best suited for the intended task, where to find the tool or how to make it, and, finally, how to use it and care for it.
The Magick Toolbox includes most of the implements a practicing ritualist might need:
• Altar tools and athames
• Bells and besoms (brooms)
• Candle holders and censers
• Cauldrons and chalices
• Pentacles and pipes
• Wands and staffs
Neal also looks at other tools used in the practice of the magickal arts, including musical instruments, swords, scrying tools, tarot cards, and statuary.
The Magick Toolbox offers lessons on how to consecrate and care for magickal tools, rituals for the tools themselves, and uses for the tools in incantations, prayers, and magickal workings.
Author's Notes: I spent many years selling altar tools and have assembled complete altar sets for hundreds of people over the years. This book is an attempt to explain not only the basics of using most of the commonly used magick tools, it also teaches how to find the tools, cleanse them, mark them, or even make them yourself.
This book is written as a reference book more than a book you would read end-to-end. Organized in encyclopedic format, it is a fast reference that includes rituals and other detailed information about the use of a tool, even if it is totally unfamilar to you.
Where To Buy: Available from many on-line retailers (including Amazon and BN) as well as many smaller retailers. Available for order at most bookstores, but not found on shelves very often these days. Signed copies are available at cover price on the author's web site.
