Spell for Sunshine

helios-and-clytie-melinda-mccarthy

No need to cross your fingers and hope for good weather. According to the Romanies, you can make the sun shine whenever you want it to.

Here’s how:

  • Light a golden candle.
  • Draw a five-inch map of the area where you want the sun to shine.
    Moving the map clockwise, circle it three times around the candle flame, imagining the flame is the sun.
  • Burn the map in the flame while making your wish.

You could say:

Fair weather I ask you to shine,
On this special day of mine,
I’ve chased the clouds away,
So the sun will shine all day.

Your special day will be filled with sunshine.

Protection From Beyond

LuAnneB081108

Romany spiritual traditions combine a dislike of disturbing the dead with a desire for the protective capacities cemetery dirt offers. Although one might not want to disturb one’s own ancestors or someone one knows, there’s no actual fear of the cemetery, thus an anonymous, unknown grave is chosen.

This spell harnesses abstract, protective qualities inherent in graveyard dirt to protect a child embarking on a long journey. Here’s how:

The parent takes a little dirt from any grave, balancing it on the back of the left hand. When the departing child isn’t looking, this dirt is tossed over his or her head to provide protection.

Romany New Moon Ritual

new-moon-astrology-2

The following is a Romany ritual to greet the New Moon. Greet each new moon by chanting something like this:

Here is the New Moon.
The New Moon has arrived.
Be lucky for me now.
You’ve found me penniless.
Leave me rich and prosperous.

Leave us with money.
Leave us with good health.
Leave us with love.

The Key To Happiness

GoldKey

The Romanies believe that it is extremely lucky to find a key. It means that you will soon be opening a door to success in love, marriage, or work, or even something very specific, such as getting a new car. No matter the form, happiness is assured.

With a key at hand, light a white candle. Visualize the metaphorical door you wish to open with the key. On a piece of paper, draw a door that will open to your wish.

Pour some candle wax on the drawing of the door and place the key in the wax, to weld the two together. Let the wax cool. Fold the paper around the key to form a neat envelope or parcel. Generously seal all the edges with more wax from the candle. Blow out the candle.

At night, toss the parcel into a fire, imagining as vividly as possible the door you are passing through. Pour your passion into the flames and send your desires heavenward. The spell has been cast. Do not dwell on your wish, because such thoughts drag it back to earth and sap its energy. Have faith. Believe in the miracle, and it will happen.

Gypsy Spell To Make A Wish Come True

Memories Fairy

On the day of the new moon, write your wish on a sheet of clean paper, then light a new, white votive candle. At this point turn off any artificial lighting that may be on.

For ten minutes, enjoy the flame’s glow and think about the fulfillment of your wish. Then say:

“As I sleep tonight,
may the divine power of spiritual love and light grant my wish.”

While concentrating on your wish, burn the piece of paper in the flame. Leave the votive candle to burn out. Repeat the spell at the same time on twelve consecutive nights. If you miss a night, begin the spell from day one.

Gypsy Iron Protection Spell

5996637_orig

This spell can be used to improve the health of an elderly person as well as to keep harm away from someone who is housebound.

 

Take a horseshoe or an iron nail and bless it by immersing it in salty water. Bury it in the garden of the sick person or in a potted plant. Leave the tip poking out of the earth, to act as a conductor to disperse the energy.

When you bury it, say:

Ill health I do tell,
Run through this iron.
(name of person) is free and well.

Gypsy Justice Spell

Tarotcardjustice

If the law has treated you unfairly, invoke this spell and justice will be done.

Take the Justice card from a Tarot deck. Now light a blue candle and place the Justice card on the right-hand side. Write your name and address on an unused piece of white or green paper and place it to the left of the candle. Romanies sometimes use their thumb-print instead of their name and address.

Light thirteen votive candles, to represent the thirteen lunar cycles of a year, and place them in a circle around the candle and card.

Say a prayer in which you ask for protection to be placed around you and your family.

Write your wish regarding the legal matter on a piece of paper. Sprinkle it with rose oil and burn it on the blue candle’s flame. Place the burning paper on a saucer until it turns to ash. Leave the candles to burn out and your wish will be fulfilled.

Healing Old Wounds

Copy of ANCESTORS POSING FOR POSTERITY

This is magick used when there has been a rift in the family, be it between two individuals or between two whole groups within the family. It can be recognized as basic sympathetic magick.

Take a long white candle and break it into as many parts as there are factions. However, be careful not to break the wick – only the wax.

On each section of the candle carve the name of the individual or the initials of the major figures in the dispute (for example: should it be one whole branch of the family against another, with perphas as many persons in each group, then just mark the initials of the leaders, such as the father, mother, or grandmother, etc).

Lay the broken candle on a sheet of clean parchment (paper will do). Light a pink (best), red (second best) or white (third choice) candle and hold it over the broken candle so that the melting wax drops down onto the breaks, sealing them.

The broken candle should be slowly turned, keeping it on the parchment, so that all sides of the breaks become joined by the falling wax. As you do this, say: “Heal! Heal! Heal!” repeating it as necessary until the white candle is whole again.

When the engraved candle is once again whole, stand it upright in a holder and light it. It should then be left to burn down completely.

Gypsy Fetish for Successful Sales

mojo bag 2Teeth which have been buried for many years, serve to make a singular fetish. They are mingled with the bones of a tree-frog, and the whole then sewed up in a little bag. If a man has anything for sale, and will draw or rub this bag over it, he will have many offers or customers for the articles thus enchanted.

The bones are prepared by putting the frog into a glass or earthen receptacle full of small holes. This is buried in an anthill. The ants enter the holes and eat away all the flesh, leaving the bones which after a few weeks are removed.
