A Note About Spells:
If you are here looking for spells to affect the will
of other people, i.e., make someone love you, harm someone, attain personal
gain at the cost of others, etc... you are in the wrong place. Spells, simply
put, are a way of directing energy to bring about change in YOUR life, not
elses. Change can happen in many ways and that may or may not be in the way
that you expect. Wiccans never perform spells or rituals to harm or affect
will of others, only to affect their own lives in positive ways by drawing
their own energies. Please do not contact us asking for spells to control the
will of others; we cannot and will not help you. There is no
here, it takes many years of practice and attuning to channel your inner
and it is not to be taken lightly. That said, if you are still interested in
learning more about Wicca and/or Paganism, please visit these web links:

Full Moon Scrying Ritual
The upcoming summer months are the perfect time for Full Moon Scrying and I'd like to pass on an old, time honored scrying ritual originally written by D.J. Conway that I have used many times during the long summer nights:
Perform this ritual outside where the rays of the Moon can fall directly onto the water in the cauldron. If you cannot go outside, stay in a darkened room near a window that the Moon shines through. Place the coin in the water and take the cauldron in both hands. Gaze up at the Moon and say:
"Lovely Lady of the night,
Look down at the coin shimmering in the cauldrons water.
With your eyes half closed, adjust your vision as if you were looking into
through the coin. Don't try to analuze anything you might see or that might
come into your mind. Just accept it. Some people, rathar than seeing actual
pictures within the cauldron, will have mental impressions, feelings or
When you have finished, bow to the Moon and say thank you. Pour the water out
on the ground. You're done!

you until the Full Moon goes through her phases and returns to Full.

Purification Ritual for
New Magical Tools
Whenever you buy a new tool for magical workings it is important that the tool is purified. This is a simple purification ritual that I use to cleanse my new magical tools:
Ignite the herbs and let them smolder awhile. As the smoke curls about you pass your tool through the smoke and say:
The item is now ready to use!

Winter Ritual Bath
During the Winter Solstice/Christmas Season we often place too much emphasis on celebrating and sharing this joyous holiday. It is often helpful amongst all the stress to atune to a quiet, internal spirituality. To begin to do so, prepare a ritual bath with oils of rosemary, pine and orange. Add a touch of patchouli for grounding. Light gold and green candles and immerse yourself in the watery solitude to refresh your weary holiday spirit. Meditate on the Winter Goddess and her lesson of stillness. Find the cool and clean space she offers, free of clutter and activity. It is the season for centering and grounding and for defining who we really are. After the bath, take your journal and write down your goals by candlelight. Contemplate the coming re-birth and identify which direction you wish to channel your energies and focus your intentions.
-This bath was adapted by one written by Karri Allrich

Springs of Kupala Love
Kupala is the Slavic Goddess of springs and rivers. Her name means "to bathe"; and if you need a new love in the new year; perhaps Kupala can help you. Gather some fragrant flowers, either red or pink in color, and "love" scented bath salts. Fill the bathtub with water and bath salts as directed. Sprinkle some flower petals into the bath water. While you relax in the bath, recite to yourself:
"Kupala, goddess fragrant, dear,
Mountain streams bring fresh and free
Scatter the rest of the flower petals into a moving body of water, and the spell is done!

Bury Your Old Self Spell
If you are bothered by an aspect of your personality that you would like to let go of, then take a new potato and a knife (or your athame) and carve the potato into an image that represents the aspect to you. At midnight, take the carved potato our into a field (or wherever you can find relatively undisturbed dirt) and bury it in the ground. As you do, repeat these words:
"With this image, I
You're done. As the image under the earth dissolves, so will the quality you want to be rid of!

Vision from the Goddess
If you seek divine inspiration of guidance on this
day, scatter candles liberally but safely, around a room. Half-fill a small
cauldron or large bowl with water and add some floating candles. Light all
candles, leaving the floating ones for last. Ground and center yourself,
on a particular deity if you wish. When you feel ready, gaze into the bottom
of the cauldron, focusing, yet not focusing, on the flames and motion of the
water. Spend some time afterward meditating upon the vision that you
You may want to write down what you saw as well as what you think it meant,
for future use.

Relationship Charm Spell
On the night of a waxing Moon gather a pink candle, two rose petals, lavender oil and a small china plate. Cast a circle and light the candle. Contemplate the flame as a symbol of love's light. Place the rose petals on the plate and add three drops of oil while saying:
"Love's truth burns bright,
Tip the candle to drip wax onto the petals, enough to form a coin sized token. Mold the wax and the petals together. Keep this token safe for six Moons then bury it beneath a rose bush.

Ring of Fire Spell
This spell is based on a little-known solar ritual from the Aegean islands. Long ago on the night before the Summer Solstice, hoops were set ablaze, and the villagers woudl guide the Sun's return by jumping though rings of fire. You can create your own ring of fire with this spell. At dusk, outdoors if possible, light four candles of appropriate color, one for each season, in a circle. In the center place a gold or yellow candle for the Sun. Light the seasonal candles and say:
"Seasons must turn,
Light the Sun candle and say:
Jump over your lit candles if you dare. Meditate on each Season and Thank the Sun for it's return as you put out the candles.

A Vacation Spell
For a change of pace you may want to try using some magic to decide the best destination for a quick get away. You will need a pendulum and a map. Narrow down your choices to between three and five destinations and spread the map in front of you. First, as the pendulum to show you a "no" answer and a "yes" answer. When you have determined which way it swings for yes and no, hold it over each sight. Ask aloud if this would be a good place for your vacation. The pendulum will swing giving you a yes or no answer. If the pendulum swings in circles or vibrates wildy, avoid that location. When the pendulum answers yes to one or more locations you have your destinations!

The divine is all around us. To tap into the spirit of the divine in your daily life, gather together two pink candles, some jasmine or gardenia oil, some rosemary herb, a mirror and a pink cloth large enough to cover the mirror. Sit before the mirror, eyes closed, and breathe in the energy of the earth and sky. Fill yourself with light. Open your eyes and see yourself filled with light. Anoint the outline of your face with the oil and speak the following verse three times:
"I am the Goddess (or God) Incarnate.
I am beautiful. I am loved."
Cover the mirror with the pink cloth. Repeat the verse any time you are feeling lonely, down on yourself or unloved.

At this time of the year, the balance between dark and light it's great to try and find your own balance using an Autumnal Blessing. It can easily be adapted for a group or solitary:
Use a White and Black candle, placed side by side, for this ritual. Breathe in the glow that comes from the equal balance of day and night. Decorate your sacred space with fruits and grain and harvest leaves as you slowly speak this verse:
"Protection covers me and mine,
Mabone comes with balance dear,
Second Harvest abudance flows,
We fill our stores though Harvest Moon,
Harvest brings both hope and fear,
Bless this house with abundance clear,
Strength of the cycles for all to see,
Red, Yellow, Brown and Amber,
My spirit embrace the dwindling light,
Protection and safety there will be,
The balance now is perfect and right.
Searching she goes and searching she will be,
Mabon's magic dances in me,

Solitary Samhain Ritual
Invoke deities by saying:
Light the God Candle and say:
Face Altar Saying:
Light Goddess candle and say:
Cycling of the year:
Take the blade, and grapes [or apple]. Cut into fruit
(apples or grapes); place on a plate, and offer it upwards & then hold it
in front of you.
Eat, and pause to think about the end of summer.
Place knife on altar. Say: "Summer ends. Winter begins. The fields lie fallow, and the beast sleep in their homes. The Lord passes the mantle of guidance to the Lady as the nights grow cold and long."
Take blade & pomegranate. Cut into it, place on plate; offer it upwards, then hold it in front of you. "I eat this first fruit of winter. May I feel the chill that ripened this fruit in the rind. May I taste the richness of life hidden away."
Eat, and pause to think of what winter will bring.
Say: "Hekate Apotropaios, averter of evil--control the wrath of the dead, whose spirits cry out for vengeance, and who may lash out at anyone they can reach. Protect the living from their rage. Hekate Chthonia, lady of the underworld--you have dominion over the hostile spirits who wander; guide them to their resting places, and seal the gates between the worlds. Hekate Phosphoros, light-bringer--bring us light and guidance as we stand in this doorway, this transition between peace and war. Let your torches show us the truths hidden in the shadows; lead us out of this darkness."
Remembrance & contemplation:
"I now remember and honor those who have died this past year."
Face altar, and mention someone who has passed in the last year that you will miss. This does not need to be someone you know personally. If you have incense, light a stick and wave it in a circle, or put another pinch on the charcoal for each person you mention. (Or light a candle.) If you have a token of the person (an item of theirs, or a photo), place it on the altar.
Continue until you've had the chance to remember as many people as you care to. Pause.
Simple Feast--cakes & wine, or whatever you want
Thank and release the Gods and Goddesses
"Pan, lord of the fields in summer, thank you for your presence, for sharing your joy in life. Before you depart to your winter realms, I drink deep in your honor" [raise cup, drink, spill some in libation bowl, set it down & raise hands over head]... "Hail Pan! Hail & farewell!"
"Hekate, lady of night & magic, thank you for your presence, for extending your protection. Before you depart to take up your winter duties, I drink deep in your honor" [raise cup, drink, spill some in libation bowl, set it down & raise hands over head] "Hail Hekate! Hail & farewell!"

Celtic Tree of Rowan

Peace and Love Stone Spell
Love and peace are powers greater than we can know, but we can tap into the energies that surround these concepts and bring them into the new day by annointing a rose quartz with gardenia today. As you anoint the stone, whisper "peace" and "love" to yourself, magnifying the energy in the stone. Carry the stone with you today and any day you desire peace and love. A few times each day, take a moment to slow and deepen your breathing. Holding the stone in your hand, inhale and say the work "peace" to yourself. Feel a peaceful sensation fill your body. As you exhale, think of the word "love" and see a loving pink light flow through you into the world. Repeat two or three more times and any time you need to feel the spell.

Release Bad Habits Spell
Springtime is the perfect time to release yourself from unwanted habits and negative energy. To release bad habits, cook with an onion. Before beginning breathe the energy of the earth into the knife. As you cut the onion, say to yourself:

"Heat of fire, heat of life; Transform these habits before my sight."

This is a gift of good mental health, or perhaps a gift of the stars. People who don't get enthusiastic miss a lot. This feeling makes you glow, it makes your blood run faster, it is the fuel that carries you to your goals. Motivation is another form of this feeling. If you want to become more enthusiastic about your life, do this ritual every morning just after you get up and every evening just before you fall asleep.
Get a piece of green stone. It can be jasper, malachite, emerald, or jade. Rub it with your hands over the smoke from a little incense (your favorite) and say three times:

Calm Warring Siblings
Had the nine Muses fought the way most sisters do, humanity's arts would be much the poorer. To help establish sibling harmony among your children, bind objects symbolic of each child with a six-foot-long brown ribbon. As you do so, repeat: "Binah brought you unto me. Mother goddess, hear this plea. Let my children happy be; bound in soulful harmony." If the Moon is waxing, you should contemplate a growth of love among the siblings; if waning, meditate on diminishing hostility. Pull the ribbon tight, and knot. Every time they fight, think of their goddess-blessed unity. It will not take long for the spell to take practical effect.
