The Magic Circular is the official magazine of the Magic Circle. It is the longest continuous running magic periodical in Magic’s history with well over one thousand issue.

In 1906, Nevil Maskelyne edited the first issue of The Magic Circular, and on its cover were the signs of the zodiac which, together with the words "Indocilis Privata Loqui", which would become the emblem of The Magic Circle. The Latin motto, roughly translated, means "not apt to disclose secrets."

The Magic Circular has been published continuously on a monthly basis since that time.

The Cecil Lyle Award is given for the best trick or illusion printed in The Magic Circular each year.

Current editor is Will Houstoun.
