Romantic Spells

A Spell to Envoke a Romantic Response
If you are attracted to someone but there is no response, this spell may do the trick. It won’t make them fall for you, but it will make sure that nothing stands in the way. The spell works best if it is cast on a Friday.

What You Need:

  • A wine glass
  • A plain gold ring
  • 80 cm of red ribbon
  • A crystal of rose quartz
  • A bowl of red flowers
  • A picture of the person you wish to attract, if available

Stand the wine glass on your altar. Thread the ribbon through the ring
to make a pendulum and, holding the ribbon between your thumb and
forefinger, let the ring hang in the rim of the glass, without letting it
touch the sides .
Say aloud your name and the name of the person you are attracted to.
Pause for a moment then repeat both names again and then once more.
Look at the picture (if you don’t have one, bring one into your mind’s
eye) and spell their name out loud. As you say each letter, let the ring tap
against the glass.
Tie the ribbon round your neck, the ring resting on your heart and bring
the magic making to an end. Wear it for three weeks, taking it off only
to repeat the spell on the next three Fridays.
If after the end of the third week there has been no sign that your
interest is being reciprocated, then perhaps it’s time to realize that some
things are never meant to be

A Spell to Make Love Grow
Whirlwind romances may be the stuff of romantic novels, but in real life flames that are the quickest to take, burn out and are the first to die. This spell takes time to work but it is very effective. It should be done on a clear night during a waxing moon.

What You Need:

  • A packet of seeds
  • A new flowerpot
  • Potting compost
  • A small copper coin

Before you open your circle take the coin outside and hold it up to the
moon, focusing your mind on the one whose thoughts you are trying to
direct towards you.
Now go to your sacred space and, the opening rituals completed, bury
the coin in the flowerpot. Sprinkle the seeds on top to form the initials
of the other person’s first and last name. As the seeds germinate and start
to shoot, so love should take root and blossom in your life.

A Spell to Revive Passion
If passion is cooling between you and your lover this simple spell may help revive it. Ideally it demands there be a fire in your sacred space. If this is not practical, when you consecrate the laurel leaves, consecrate some coal and when you have opened your circle, leave the circle and take the leaves and the coal to your fireplace. Or if you live in a centrally heated home, you could build a bonfire or use your barbecue.

What You Need:

  • Lots of laurel leaves
  • A fire in embers (see above)

Gaze at the embers, a picture of your love in
your mind’s eye, for a moment or two before
throwing some of the laurel leaves onto the embers.

As they smoulder say:
Sacred leaves glow in the fire
Warm the heart of my true love’s desire.

When the leaves have burned away, repeat the ritual twice, adding, ‘And
let it be done, that it harm no one,’ the last time you say the words.
If the fire was in your sacred space, bring the magic making to an end in
your usual fashion. If you had to leave the circle to cast the spell, return
to it through the same ‘door’ you made in it when you left, and then
perform your closing rituals

A Spell For New Love
Use the power of the new moon to cast this spell to add spice to your life by bringing a new love into it.

What You Need:

  • A salt shaker
  • A pepper shaker
  • Three feet of pink ribbon

As you consecrate the ingredients, think of one of the spices as masculine
and the other as feminine. Then tie the female object to one end of the
ribbon and the male one to the other end.

As you are doing this say:
Ribbon of love, as I bind thee,
Please let true love find me.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

Next morning, untie the two shakers, then retie them a little closer to
each other, repeating the incantation. Do this each day for a week, timing
it so that by the seventh day the two are touching. Now bind them
together, repeating the incantation and leave them until the night of the
full moon by which time either someone should have entered your life,
or someone you already know will have you in their thoughts. They may
not declare themselves right away, but they will eventually.

A Spell for When Love is Shaky
If a love affair is getting a little shaky, try this spell to shore up the foundations.

What You Need:

  • A fresh apple
  • A clean sheet of white writing paper
  • An unused pen
  • A knife
  • Two pins

Slice the apple in half without cutting through the seeds. If you are
casting the spell for yourself, write your own name and the name of the
other person on the paper. If you are casting it on behalf of another
couple, write their names on the paper. In either case, make sure that the
names take up less than the width of the apple.
Now cut out the names and put the paper bearing them between the two
halves of the apple. Bring them together and visualize harmonious
relations restored.
Fix the two halves together with the two pins, inserting the first pin
diagonally right to left and the second one diagonally left to right. Focus
your thoughts on the skewered apple, trying to picture your love taking
wing, flying to the person or people concerned and watching it being

A Spell with No One Particular in Mind
This spell is cast by those looking for true love, but who have no particular person in mind. It should be cast out of doors beside a stream or river.

What You Need:

  • Rose petals from a living, wild rose

Wiccans will approach the rose with reverence and ask its permission
before removing the petals. Then they will thank it for its generosity.
As you are plucking the petals, visualize someone who has all the
qualities you think are necessary in the ideal partner – humour,
generosity, compassion, whatever. Take the petals to a stream or river,
hold them in cupped hands and, again visualizing the qualities you are
looking for, let them drop into the flowing water, saying:

As this bloom is taken downstream
May I find the love of which I dream.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

The spell is cast.

A Spell to Have Love Returned
Horseshoes were once easy to get hold of and were commonly hung over doors to bring good luck into the house. If there is not one at hand, and these days there probably will not be, cut one from a piece of card or paper, or maybe you can lay your hands on a miniature one that has been used as a good luck charm on a wedding cake. The spell is cast to have the love you hold in your heart for someone reciprocated. Cast on a Friday when the moon is waning.

What You Need:

  • A pink candle (representing the female)
  • A blue candle (representing the male)
  • A gold candle
  • A horseshoe
  • A key
  • Two roses (preferably, but not necessarily, red)
  • An article of the other person’s clothing
  • A large bowl
  • Pot pourri

Female spell casters should light the pink candle first then the blue one.
Men should light the blue one first then the pink. When these two
candles have been lit, light the gold one and put it between the other two.
Now place a rose alongside the two outer candles and put the horseshoe
at the far side of one of the roses and the key at the far side of the other
As the candles burn, focus on your heart’s desire until the flames flicker
and die or you have to bring the ritual to an end, in which case
extinguish the flames in the usual way.

Wrap the key and the horseshoe in the article of clothing and put it in a
drawer. Leave it there for two weeks, by which time the roses will have
lost their bloom. Do not throw them away. When the fourteen days have
passed, take the package from the drawer and put the horseshoe, key and
rose petals in the bowl. Fill it with the pot pourri and put it on the
window ledge closest to where your loved one lives. Now wait and your
love will come to you

A Miscellany of Spells

A Spell to Counter Another’s Magic
If, for some reason you believe that another person is using their powers adversely to affect you in some way, remove their negative influences with this simple spell.

What You Need:

  • Two teaspoons of almond oil (or any suitable carrier oil)
  • Rosemary essential oil
  • A mixing bottle
  • A sheet of white paper
  • A black ink pen
  • A white altar candle
  • A purple taper candle
  • A fireproof bowl

Add three drops of the rosemary essential oil to the carrier oil and charge
it by rolling the mixing bottle between the palms of your hands, focusing
your thoughts on the purpose of your spell weaving. Now light the
white candle and, focusing on its flame, see whoever you think is being
negative towards you becoming smaller and smaller.

Anoint the purple candle with the charged oil, drawing the oil away from
you as you are banishing something that has been directed towards you.
Before lighting the candle, write on the paper ‘All blocks are gone’ and
fold it three times. Now light the candle and use its flame to set fire to
the paper. Focusing on the flames, say the following three times, at the
last adding, ‘And let it be done, that it harm no one’:
As this paper burns away,
Elements please hear me pray.
Turn back the ill will sent to me,
And send it on its way.

As the flames dim, see the ill will dissolving with them, then bring the
session to an end in the usual way.

A Spell to Encourage Self-Esteem
Lacking that happy knack of making friends easily? If you are asked to a party, do you stand around like the proverbial wallflower while everyone else is engaged in happy conversations and the sound of everybody’s laughter fills the room? Or maybe your career is stuck in a rut that’s deeper than a jumbo jet’s tire mark on a muddy runway? If you think, ‘That’s me!’ about any of these suggestions, then maybe the answer lies in a lack of self-esteem. The following may, no will, help.

What You Need:

  • A bath!
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Jasmine essential oil
  • An essential oil burner
  • Seven green oak leaves (or basil, if oak is out of season)
  • One purple candle
  • One yellow candle
  • Purple thread
  • An envelope

Light the candles, run a warm (not hot) bath, and drizzle some of the
lavender oil into the water. Float the leaves in the bath and climb in.
Breathe in through your nose and hold your breath for a count of seven.
Breathe out through your mouth for a count of seven, and then seven
more. When you breathe in, visualize your lungs filling up with warm,
golden light. As you breathe out, see your frustrations in your breath
and watch your anger, pain and any other barriers between you and the
rest of the world leave you.
Now, totally relaxed and at ease with yourself, visualize a spot of golden
light above you. Watch it get bigger and bigger before it floats down and
your body is enveloped in its warm glow. At this point, say the words
that follow or ones suggested by them:
I have a contribution to make.
I have words to say.
Let others hear the words I speak.
And take self-doubt away.
And let it be done, that it harm no one

Repeat the words six more times and when you feel ready, leave the bath
and snuff out the candles in the usual way. Thread the oak (or basil)
leaves on to the thread, hold them up to the light and repeat the words
one more time. Now fold the leaves into the envelope and put them in
your handbag or wallet. Whenever you have a bad day, first thing the
following morning, heat the jasmine oil in the burner, re-light the
candles and hold the leaves up to the flames, repeating the words seven
times in all and face the new day with confidence.
When the leaves die, repeat the original spell and it won’t be long before
you are brimming with self-confidence and no longer have need of it.

A Spell to Ask for Courage
Tuesdays are best for this spell that brings boldness to the faint-hearted. Cast this spell on a Tuesday in Aries, when the moon is waxing or full. Dress in red clothes and cover your altar with a red cloth to add potency to your magic.

What You Need:

  • One white altar candle
  • One red taper candle
  • Some sprigs of holly or honeysuckle
  • An essential oil burner
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Black pepper

When the fumes of the lavender oil are
filling the air, sprinkle the pepper onto the
burner. Now light the white candle and kneel
down, focusing on the flame while silently asking for the courage to face
whatever challenges lie ahead. Visualize yourself triumphant in any
situation and then light the red candle. Now stand to your full height in
front of the altar and, with hands held high above your head, say aloud:

Strength and courage may I possess,
That what I fear, I may face.
In winning through to the other side,
On to victory I will ride.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

The spell is cast. You can face the future with boldness

A Spell to Inspire You
This spell uses candles anointed with peppermint essential oil to lift you when you need inspiration to meet an oncoming challenge.

What You Need:

  • Two teaspoons of almond oil (or any suitable carrier oil)
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • A mixing bottle
  • An indigo candle
  • A white candle

Pour the almond oil into the mixing bottle and add three drops of the
peppermint oil. Light the white candle and meditate on the purpose of
the spell for a minute or two. Now roll the bottle between hands held
prayer-style and when you feel it has been charged with gratitude,
return it to the altar. Inscribe the indigo candle with the number ‘1’
before anointing it with the charged oil. Return it to its holder and light
it. Hold your hands towards the flame and say:

I ask of you, Oh Powers that be,
To send inspiration down to me.
To fill my mind with ideas clear,
And remove from me all trace of fear.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

Visualize the candle flame filling you with inspiration until it burns
down and you leave your sacred space bathed in inspiration that will
remain with you.
