Financial concerns are a great place to start because, while it's true that money won't buy happiness, the lack of it sure can spark and aggravate any other emergency! Read the first page

This book is all that is expected from Judika Illes, it has everything you would want to know when you have to perform a spell in a hurry. I can honestly recommend all Judika Illes books in confidence.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good spellbook 27 Jun 2014
This is an enjoyable read,offering spells for many occasions (such as get cash fast,increase business,pass an exam,make yourself irresistible,make someone love you,heal a broken heart,find your soul mate,fit into your wedding dress,stop a bully,protect your home,fulfill a wish etc ).
It starts with a basic introduction into magic and gives a collection of condition oil recipes (Banishing oil,command and compel,crown of success,fiery wall of protection,van van oil and florida water,other recipes are given as well but they are with the spell to use them with rather than given a separate section).
Much of the magic is very hoodoo style-using roots,mojos,oils and candles.
A good one to add to your spellbook collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Collection 15 Feb 2008
By Brother MOLOCH 969 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I disagree with the reviewer's comment that "Witches don't need a book of spells" because that is precisely what Witches DO need! The mass majority of so-called Witches & especially Wiccans could not enchant their way out of a wet paper sack with a razor sharp dagger in hand! The reason for this is because the average practitioner is about as ignorant as the author of the book-of-the-month-pagans are when it comes to spells and spellcasting.

Personally, I understand how spells are made as I spent years dissecting many of the old charms and spells found in folklore. This is what a Novice SHOULD be doing but does not instead choosing to waste time trying to reinvent the wheel.

This is a useful collection of spells (even though I found some to be odd such as "Surviving Natural Disasters" or "Make Your Children Behave In Public" but overall quite useful for what is offered. I also enjoyed the way she utilizes natural things to aim and direct a spell's energy toward a particular purpose.

Case-in-point with the "Increase Business Now" where she suggests using sand (she calls it dust) from an anthill with a lodestone and the other two ingredients. The ants is a PERFECT sympathetic item to use beause who in the world work harder and are more dedicated than ants? They're the perfect analogy of a big corporation. Most of the so-called Occult books out there neglect the materials from nature other than herbs, roots, resins & essential oils.

Overall I found the materials and the way they're used in this manual to be well balanced and as well thought out.

The ONE thing I dislike is her 'ethics' discussion. Cannot understand WHY McWiccans must be forewarned in every book they may touch. Gods this is such rhetorical nonsense and smacks of the same indoctrination on Wiccabes as Xianity does with their young. This is the one thing that kept me from giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. Since she caved in to the pressure of the McWiccans, I have to give her only 4 out of 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Wicca 101 7 Feb 2003
By Lilith Ravenwood - Published on
The reviewer who complained that Emergency Magic reads like a manual is unfamiliar with the format. This book is more like an old-fashioned grimoire than a new age primer.
Emergency Magic is a lean, lucid, easy-to-read collection of spells. Instructions are clear and direct. The book includes a small oil formulary, sources for ordering supplies on-line, Latin names for plants: using this book couldn't be easier.
This is an ideal book for those who aren't looking for alot of philosophy and explanation, just an excellent selection of unusual spells. It is also ideal for the more experienced witch: adepts with a good grasp of the subject looking to expand their magical repertoire. Those interested in the "how's" and "why's" of magic might do better to look at the author's previous book, Earth Mother Magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Most Timely Guide 18 Nov 2002
By Carole V. Murray - Published on
In our post 9/11 world we have never been more aware of the true meaning of emergency. Whether enormous global crisis or minor personal dilemma, Judika Illes once again manages to calm us down and set us on the correct magical path. Her articulate intelligent approach will convert even the most hardened skeptic.
These are result-driven spells and I only wish I had this book years ago. As in her previous book, Earth Mother Magic, Judika mixes an original blend of old and new techniques to come up with a potent brew that is perfect for today's lifestyle. These rituals require neither an exorbitant amount of financial expense nor a prohibitive amount of time. They are thoroughly modern yet grounded in history. And best of all.... they work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emergency Magic - It is about time. 4 Nov 2002
By A Customer - Published on
While I adore to do full rituals, I do not always have the time to spend an evening doing them. And then there is the time, energy and money spent looking for all the items needed!
Judika has taken the hard work out of magic, showing us that our mind is our most powerful tool. She has once again taken what is different and alien to some, and had made it easy and simple for everyday life. Looking forward to many more books from her!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super handy book! 8 May 2008
By Marion S. Wilhelm - Published on
This a great spell book for those in need of fast magick spells. If your need is dire,there is a spell here to fit the bill and you can get to it quick. Judith Illes is one of my favorite authors and her book,The Element Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells : The Ultimate Reference Book for the Magical Arts, is a must-have, as well. This a must-have on every practicioner's shelf!
