Osiris, Lord of the Dead, presides over the Western Lands, the ancient Egyptian after-life. He may be petitioned to guard the soul of a loved one. Burn frankincense and gum arabica in Osiris’s honor; light black and green candles. Osiris accepts offerings of spring water, flowers, and grain.
In this manner the letter must be written: first, the ink prepared from soot mixed with pale wine; next, the pen made, shaped from a quill never before cut; then, the paper arranged on a table between two black candles. At the top of the paper this inscription should be set:
See now, thou who are mourned, the nature of this mourning: as thou knowest even now my sorrow, so on this paper do I doubly affirm it. I write thee my heart here, for thy sight and mine only – that we may be bound by such silent words even better than when our words were spoken. Receive, then, this document as sign and token of my commitment: not to forget thee, nor to cease mourning for thee, until my own life shall be ended.
Write down then the essence of your grief, the substance of your devotion, and such aspects of memory as you would fix forever. When this has been accomplished, fold the paper thrice and seal it, along with sweet herbs, in a small box which should then be buried in the ground, or burned in a fire of fragrant wood. The letter shall thus be received.

If you are feeling uneasy, nervous or threatened, try repeating this chant quietly to yourself.
“Divine Goddess, Goddess Divine,
Divine God, God Divine,
If evil dwells within this place,
Please make it leave my space”

You may wish this only three times in between the New Moons. While gazing at the moon, repeat the following:
“Moon, Moon, beautiful Moon,
brighter than any star
Goddess of light and love,
Diana if it might be,
Pray bring fortune unto me”
A sign that the spell worked would be coins doubling in the purse or pocket. Or seeing a hare before dawn.

Find an empty acorn cup still attached to an oak leaf or twig. Gather ash seeds (the keys). Murmur over them:
“Acorn cup and ashen key
bring my true love back to me.”
Place them under your pillow on three consecutive Friday nights, repeating the incantation each time. If your beloved has not returned by then, it’s time to consider the possibility that this is not your true love.
Use this invocation to ask the archangel of Venus, Anael, to bless and bring harmony to a romantic relationship. Light a candle at Anael’s hour (between 9 and 10am) and burn some rose incense. Scatter a few pink rose petals on your altar, and then say the invocation.
Archangel Anael, angel of the mystic planet Venus,
as I light this candle,
my consciousness opens to receive your divine influence
and the blessing of your wisdom and loveliness.
I envision you descending to meet me
as I rise in thought and in spirit to reach your exalted realms.
I am aware of the exquisite roselight within
which you enclose me as in an aura.
It is as if we come together to meet in a temple of the rose.
I ask that you hear my prayer
and that I may receive the benison of your assistance.
Please clear the way
so that the love between [your lover’s name] and myself
might blossom and flourish.
Please help us to draw light from our hearts
so that it may be perfectly expressed
in body, mind, soul and spirit.
you have the romantic affairs of humankind under your divine rulership,
I watch this candle flame burn
and behold the strength and the power of the bond of love
to overcome all resentment and disharmony.
I ask that you cleanse our vision of all illusion
so that we may see the truth and the beauty in one another
and transcend all earthly barriers and limitations.
If this petition is for all good in its conception,
may it succeed.
I see the archangel Anael
pouring out blessings upon us as if from a horn of plenty;
and these blessings merge into one brilliant shaft of light,
which penetrates the heart of our love
so that it may be healed and be whole.
Finding an angel is not too hard. There is only one requirement – you can’t be kidding around when you call an angel. First, I’d like you to sit back and think seriously about why you want to contact the angelic realms. Be honest with yourself. Is there something you want to improve within yourself or your lifestyle, or is there a rough spot in your life that you would like to smooth out? Are you merely curious?
Take your time.
Good. Now, get a piece of paper or an index card and write a want ad for your angel. I kid you not. Sit down and compose an ad as if you were looking for a teacher, a friend, someone who has a service you would like to contact, etc. Here are two sample want ads:
WANTED: Angel from the celestial realms. Seeking an angel who can help me improve my self-image. Need one who can get through my stubborn streak.
SEEKING: Angel who is willing to help me with my money problems. Seeking loving assistance to help me create peace and prosperity in my life.
When you’ve finished the ad, hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and concentrate on bringing a being of light toward yourself. Read your ad out loud if you think it will help. Don’t worry about not doing it right – there is no wrong way to ask an angel to help as long as you use good manners. If you would like to say a little prayer, be my guest. Here’s a good one:
Angelic hosts please hear my call
Bright blessings I extend to all.
East and south, west and north
I circle round and call the forth.
Invisible friend, messenger of love
Send me aid from the realms above.
When you are finished, tuck the card in a pocket or pin it someplace on your clothing where no one can see it. Don’t announce to everyone you know that you’ve just placed a want ad for an angel. We don’t want anyone’s negative thoughts interfering with your project.
After help has arrived and you feel the need to share the information with someone who can use it, then by all means do so. If you have friends or family you know will scoff at you, don’t bother. An old magickal adage is: “Teach not the mysteries to fools.” Others will find their way on their own time without using you as a stepping stone.
Don’t expect your angel to appear to you with trumpets of glory and lights of gold and silver. Angels are often subtle in their work. You may receive a job offer from an unexpected source. A friend may call to pull you out of your doldrums. You may pick up a book and find the answer you were looking for there. When angels are around, there is no such thing as coincidence. It is your job to heighten your sensitivity.
If you open your mental eyes, you will see angels everywhere.
One of my favorite things to do is to plan an “angel day.” It doesn’t cost any money, and I’m never disappointed in what I find or the experiences I have. You can choose to spend a day with nature (pack a picnic lunch), visit friends, or go to a busy shopping mall. It doesn’t matter.
There is only one requirement:
Before you start out, say to yourself, “I’m going to have an angel day today. That means I’m open to whatever the universe has to show me about angels, and how I can help others.” then off you go.
You can tweak the purpose of your angel day to achieve a number of goals. For example, if you are wanting to know more about your guardian angel, you can say,
“I’m going to have an angel day today. That means I’m open to whatever my guardian angel wants to show me about his/herself, and how we can establish a deeper bond and better communication.”
Keep in mind that every occurrence and everyone you meet is orchestrated by the angels to educate or entertain you. You are on an adventure, a treasure hunt. Be nice to every person you meet. Look people straight in the eyes if they speak to you. Pay attention and listen to what is happening around you.
If you are a “shopper,” might yourself that you will only look for angel things today. You will find that you spend less money and ferret out items you’ve really been looking for, not the junk you usually collect through impulse buying. You might ask the angels to help guide you to the right store, or library, if you are looking for a particular book or reference material.
When you return home, jot down the significant events of your day. Spend time meditating and clearing out your body. During meditation, envision your angel as a tour guide to help you work out any unanswered questions about your experiences.
In essence, there are many ways you can have an “angel day.” You can begin every day as an “angel day.” You just might be surprised by how much more in tune with the universe you will be, and it is a great feeling to have with you every single day.
O you glorious and benevolent angels,Urzla, Zlar, Larzod, Arzal, who are the four angels of the East, I invocate you, adjure and call you forth to visible apparition in and through the great prevalent and divine name of the Most Holy God Erzla, and by the ineffable and efficacious virtues and power thereof, whereby you are governed and called forth, it being therefore absolutely necessary, pre-ordained, appointed and decreed.
Now therefore do I most earnestly entreat and powerfully adjure you, O you benign angels Urzla, Zlar, Larzod, Arzal, in this potent name of your God Erzla to move and appear visibly, and show yourself to me in this crystal stone (or mirror) here before me.
And in and through the same, to transmit your ray to my sight and your voice to my ears that I may audibly hear you and plainly see you and include me in your mysteries wherefore I do most earnestly adjure you, O benevolent and amicable angels, Azla, in the most excellent name of your God, Erzla, and I as a servant of the highest do efficaciously invoke you to appear now perfectly visible to me, O you servants of mercy, come and show yourselves firmly unto me and let me partake of the secret wisdom of your creator.
From the Clavicula Salomonis
This spell is said to help one let go of painful feelings of grief. It is for those times in life when it seems impossible to feel joy again, such as after losing someone close to you.
- A smoky quartz gemstone
- Bowl of water
- Three tablespoons of sea salt
Begin by holding the stone in your power hand. See your grief in your mind’s eye. Visualize the grief moving from within yourself and through your hand to the stone. As you do this, say:
Fill yourself with my grief,
so that I may feel joy again,
So be it, blessed be!
Stirring counterclockwise, mix the sea salt into the bowl of water, then add the smoky quartz stone. Swish the stone around three times in a counterclockwise motion. Leave the stone in the water for a few minutes, then take the stone outside and safely throw it as far as you can away from yourself.
