Did you know that when you eat or drink anything, whatever you are eating or drinking will become a part of your structure – this cannot be undone. With this in mind, here is a great way to incorporate Rune Magick into your actual physical being.

Runes are a magickal alphabet invented long ago, and these days are most often used for divination. With this spell, they can also be used to give yourself a huge boost of energy and power as well. To familiarize yourself with Runes and what they mean you can visit the following posts on the Divination website:

The way this works, is that we are going to make some amazing and delicious Rune Cookies. And then, using an “If…Then” magickal technique, we are going to incorporate the Living Energy of your chosen Rune (or Runes) into your physical being.

  • Note:

This is a great idea for a coven or group. The cookies can be made in advance and then shared with the group in a ritual setting. Alternatively, you can have a group of friends over for a Rune Cookie party.

First, make the cookies:

I found this recipe at benebelle wen. She has a great tutorial and lots of fun pictures to go with it. These black sesame shortbread rune cookies look like beautiful stone runes but are also absolutely delicious to eat.  The recipe is just for straightforward black sesame shortbread cookies. She took it a step further and turned the cookies into runes.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of toasted black sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk

First, cream together the wet ingredients: the softened butter with the sugar, and then beat in the egg, and then add the whole milk.

Next, grind the toasted black sesame into a fine powder. You can use a mortar and pestle and while grinding, add some happy vibes by chanting mantras, or magickal rhymes.  I Am the Mother is a nice one, or you can use one of your own that you like.

Then sift in the all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder in with the grounded black sesame flour. This is the “dry” mix. Combine the dry and wet mix together to form a dough.

The recipe says to refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. You can let it chill while you explore the various Runes and their meanings. Maybe you’ll get an idea for what you might want to incorporate into your consciousness and your life.

Roll the dough into about 3/4-inch balls, just a bit under 1 inch. You’ll want your hands floured while you work with this dough. Then use the bottom of a glass to stamp the balls down into flat discs. Make sure the bottom of the whiskey glass is evenly floured or else your dough balls with stick to the glass.

Use a dull knife to carve the rune symbols into the discs. A cheese knife or butter knife will work just fine. You can carve just the Rune symbols that you have decided to incorporate into your life, or you can make a full set of Runes. It’s up to you.

Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F for 12 – 15 minutes.

These cookies are not just for looks. They’re tasty. Light, buttery, sweet but not over-the-top sweet, and rich with that black sesame flavor and aroma. Yum!

Now for the If… Then Technique

Because we are planning to purposely incorporate the energy of the Runes into our physical selves, it will be important to decide which Rune (or Runes) you would like to use. I would suggest no more than three. Any left over cookies can be frozen and used at a later time.

Ok, so now that you’ve selected the Rune cookie of choice. Pick it up, and realize that once you take a bite and swallow, this cannot be undone.

Say out aloud:

  • “If I eat this, that will mean I will have instant access to ….
    …. state the key qualities of the Rune that you wish to incorporate.”

Take a bite! Take your time and savor the flavor as you chew and swallow the cookie. Repeat three times. You can either take three bites of the same cookie, or eat three separate cookies.

Variations can include:

  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will become…”
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I’m going to enjoy…”
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will have…”
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will be able to…”
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will experience…”

For example, if you choose the Uruz Rune, it might sound like this:

  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will have instant access to…
    …Limitless potential, infinite possibilities, sustained strength, renewal, and untamed power.
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I’m going to enjoy…
    …Physical strength and speed, and untamed potential.
  • If I eat this, then it will mean that I will experience…
    …A time of great energy and health.

This is a spell for when a toxic person, or unhappy relationship has left you feeling frozen and unable to move on. This spell calls for a “Ghost Apple.” You can read about the magickal qualities of Ghost Apples over at Magickal Ingredients. That post also includes a simple “how to” if you’d like to make a Ghost Apple for use in the following spell.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • A Ghost Apple“This is my problem”
  • A plate “It is on my plate”
  • Incense or sage – “I purify with smoke”
  • A feather“I purify with air”
  • A small candle – “I purify with fire”
  • Salt“I purify with salt”
  • Paper towels“I wipe the slate clean”

If you do the spellwork indoors, the Ghost Apple will melt quickly, so have everything ready in advance. Place the Ghost Apple on your plate and set them on your altar, saying” This is my problem. It is on my plate.”

Light the incense and hold the Ghost Apple over the top of it so that it fills with the smoke. As you do this, say, “I purify with smoke.” Place the Ghost Apple on your plate, and with the feather, “smudge” or brush the smoke from the incense around the outside of the apple. As you do this say, ” I purify with air.”

Sprinkle salt in a circle around the Ghost Apple, and then over the top of it. Say, “I purify with salt.” Wait and watch as the salt begins to melt the Ghost Apple. Imagine and feel  your own walls melting and purifying.

Now, light the candle saying “I purify with fire.” Place the candle close to the Ghost Apple and feel your heart warming and expanding in love. Continue to meditate on this feeling until the Ghost Apple is completely melted and the candle has burned down. If water from the melting ice puts the candle out, that’s fine.

When the ice is completely gone, wipe up the water and salt with the paper towels, and clean the plate. As you do this, say, “I wipe the slate clean.”

Dispose of the paper towels and whatever is left of the incense, and the candle by dropping it into a trash bin far from your home.

You will need:

  • White or pink candle
  • A length of morning glory vine – long enough to weave into a circle
  • Small mirror – preferably round
  • A morning glory leaf
  • A morning glory flower
  • Small magnet or lodestone

Light the candle. Take the piece of morning glory vine and weave it into a circle. As you weave the vine, chant the following:

Mighty Cosmic Guardians of Love and Goodness
I call upon thee.

When the circle is complete, place in the center of it a small mirror. If your mirror is larger than the circle you made with the vine, place it on top of the mirror. Put the flower in the center of the circle, on top of the mirror. As you do, say the following:

My Magic Circle of Love is complete.
I now create the New Self-Image
of charm and charisma
that I wish to Project to the Whole world.

I now Overcome and feelings of self-consciousness
or inferiority
and I condition my Inner Mind
to thoughts of Self-Confidence,
Poise and Charm.

I send out thoughts of Love to All People and I Know
that people will Love Me in return.

I Know there is that within me which
all people recognize as Worth-While and Desirable,
and everyone whom I meet
Loves this self of Mine recognizes its worth.

Next to the flower place a leaf from the morning glory vine, and as you do say the following 3 times:

I know there is a Perfect Lover
waiting to Love and Cherish me.

Place a magnet, or lodestone on the mirror next to or on top of the leaf and flower. Say the following:

My Circle of Love is Complete
and I now Invoke the law of Magnetic Attraction and
Draw this Perfect lover onto me.
As I have said, so shall it be.

Allow the candle to burn down completely. The mirror, botanicals, and magnet can be wrapped in velvet and placed under your pillow, or carried with you.

Note:

Thrift stores often have wonderful little compact make-up cases complete with mirror. Something like that would be great for this little spell, and will allow you to keep it intact and to carry it with you as well and also simple to slip under your pillow at night. Be sure to clean a used make-up case thoroughly and give it a dip in salt water to purify the energies. Also, if you do use a compact make-up case, press and dry the flower and leaf before the spellwork.

Not sure your magnet will fit inside? Lightweight craft magnets come in many different thicknesses and sizes – some are 1/16″ thick and should fit nicely into any case.

Spell by Madame Fortuna

Murmur your desires while threading a brand new needle, which has never been used, with unbleached thread. This must be passed through the clothing of the woman or man you love near the heart three times.

(He/she does not have to be in the clothing at the time, although no doubt that would enhance the strength of the spell.)

The type of lamp recommended is a hurricane or kerosene lamp.The basic fuel mixture is a blend of castor oil, olive oil, and kerosene. Use 2/3 kerosene to 1/3 oil mixture. A simple terracotta oil lamp may also be used – the basic fuel mixture would then be olive oil, or palm oil.

Start with a clean lamp – a new one is best – but a used one is fine as long as it has been thoroughly cleansed.

At the bottom of the lamp place a magnet. If this spell is to attract a specific person, put in a personal object from the person or their name written on parchment paper cut in the form of a heart. Or you can write a description of the type of person you wish to attract on a piece of paper cut in the form of a heart.

Add a small piece of Orris Root. Pour in two ounces of virgin olive oil that has been infused with two tablespoons of rose petals and cinnamon (2 parts rose petals to 1 part cinnamon) or two tablespoons of any one of the following essential oils:

  • Jasmine,  Rose, Lavender

Now select five of the healing herbs from the following list and add 1/2 teaspoon of each:

  • Spikenard – Violets – Vanilla Bean – Vervain – Cubeb Berries – Adam and Eve Root – Laurel – Horse Chestnut – Lavender – Lotus – Lovage – Magnolia – Mistletoe – Passion flower – Patchouli Leaves – Rose Buds – Yerba mate – Sweet Bugle – Scullcap – Rose Hips – Orange Blossoms – Five-finger Grass – Linden Flowers – Gentian Root – Couch Grass – Heart ease Herb

Fill the rest of the way with your basic fuel mixture. Light the lamp and recite a prayer to Saint Anne, or whatever deity you wish to invoke for bringing love and romance into your life.

Once it is lit, the flame must not be extinguished until the goal is accomplished. Each day at the same time, your desire should be restated and the prayer recited while turning the lamp in a clockwise direction (to get the ingredients moving), and the lamp should be refueled if necessary.

Note:

If some of the ingredients seem difficult to acquire, feel free to use any herbs and oils that are useful in spells for love and romance. For example, a small rose quartz can be substituted for the orris root.

Apollo is a spirit of omnivorous sexuality. His romantic desires for men and women are equally strong; what seems to be the bottom line of attraction for him is beauty, intelligence, and talent, rather than gender. His is a complex myth.

Classical Greek mythology paints him as the handsomest, most talented, most clever spirit of all, yet the women he pursues inevitably run from his embrace. Apollo had better luck with male lovers, with whom he had happy, successful relationships. Request his assistance, especially with someone who’s hard to get.

Here’s how:

Carve and dress a large yellow or gold candle and dedicate it to Apollo. You can use any love drawing oil. Roll the candle in powdered Saint John’s Wort. Burn it and make your appeal.

Apollo’s sacred creatures include crows and mice. Significant or surprising appearances may signal your response.

This spell calls out to your long-lost love to come and find you. The idea of the message in the bottle is used to call for help from afar. You are summoning your love to come help complete your heart. The Lady of the Lake will bestow this message only upon the most worthy. Arthurian legend states the Lady of the Lake bestowed Excalibur upon the worthiest of men; think of your heart as Excalibur!

Ingredients:

  • piece of parchment paper
  • red pen
  • rose petals
  • assorted red, pink, and white beads
  • glitter
  • 1 small bottle with cork
  • 1 water lily bloom

These ingredients encompass all aspects of love with the colors red, pink, and white. Red speaks of passion and romance. Pink speaks to pure love and happiness. White is the power of spirit to guide the bottle into the hands of your true mate. It also signifies a spiritual connection between the two of you. The water lily bloom is used as an offering.

Construct your love letter. This letter should contain your love needs, wants, and expectations. It should be written from your heart. Tell your soon-to-be lover you are waiting with so much love to give and share. While writing, feel the energy you are charging flow through you, to your pen, and onto the paper, where the ink will empower your desire.

Decorate your bottle with the rest of the ingredients to add more potency for beauty, love, and romance.

Walk to the water’s edge. While holding your bottle over the water, recite the following incantation:

“Lady of the Lake, I summon thee,
Reach up and engulf, take this message from me.
Empower and send this message of light
To only the worthiest of suitors, armor shining and bright.”

Fill the bottle with water. See the Lady of the Lake rise up out of the water and transmute your message into energy. See the energy drain from the bottle, leaving only your ingredients. She will now take your message and present it only to the one worthy of your love.

Set your offering, a water lily bloom, atop the water to thank the Lady of the Lake.

The origins of this love spell are obscure, but there is a litany in archaic Italian of which I have provided an English translation. It is a ritual that requires a bit of effort and a lot of herbal materials as well as a profound belief in its success. Otherwise, its nothing more than empty words. The materials can be obtained readily in any food store, herb market or metaphysical supply store.

Herbal Mixture:

  • 3 parts lavender
  • 3 parts damiana
  • 3 parts patchouly
  • 1 part Dragon’s blood resin
  • 13 gardenia petals
  • 4 parts red clover
  • 3 Saw Palmetto Berries
  • 3 parts peppermint
  • 3 parts Rue
  • 13 drops of your favorite perfume

Other Materials Needed:

  • Frankincense incense (stick or resin)
  • Mortar and Pestle (for grinding herbs)
  • Small red drawstring bag or square of red fabric with red thread or cord

THE SPELL

Prepare space to work in by making sure the area is clean and the floors swept. Meditate on power, success and love, and begin by slowly grinding the herbs in a clockwise movement in the mortar and pestle. Do not add the oils at this time. Stirring the herbs in a clockwise direction with your finger, slowly add the oil mixture until it is well blended. Hold the bowl in your hand and enchant with the words:

Diana, bella Diana!
Che tanto bella e buona siei,
E tanto ti e piacere
Ti ho fatto,
Anche a te di fare al amore,
Dunque spero che anche in questa cosa
Tu mi voglia aiutare,
E se tu vorrai
Tutto tu portrai,
Se questa grazia mi vorrai fare:
Chiamerai tua figlia Aradia,
Al letto della bella fanciulla
La mandera Aradia,
La fanciulla in una canina cinertira,
Alla camera mia la mandera,
Ma entrate in camera mia,
Non sara piu una canina,
Ma tornera una bella fanciulla,
Bella cane era prima,
E cosi potro fare al amore
A mio piacimento,
Come a me piacera.
Quando mi saro divertito
A mi piacere diro.

“Per volere della Fata Diana,
E di sua figlia Aradia,
Torna una canina
Come tu ere prima!”

TRANSLATION:

Diana, beautiful Diana
Who art indeed as good as beautiful
By all the worship I have given thee
and all the joy of love which thou hast known
I do implore thee aid me in my love!
What thou wilt is true
Thou canst ever do
And if the grace I seek thou’ll grant to me,
Then call, I pray, thy daughter Aradia,
and send her to the bedside of the man/woman
And give that man/woman the likeness of a dog
and make him/her then come to me in my room
but when he/she once has entered it, I pray
that he/she may re-assume her human form
as beautiful as ever he/she was before
and may I then make love to him/her until
our souls with joy are fully satisfied
Then by the aid of the great Faery Queen
and of her daughter, fair Aradia
may he/she be turned into a dog again
and then to human form as once before

Draw a bath, and light fresh incense. Place the herbal/oil mixture into the red bag, or tie it up in the red cloth spuare. Submerge it into the bath water, and let it steep while you inhale the incense and focus on your desire. Enter the bath slowly, feeling the tingling of the bath on your entire body as you do. Take a deep breath, filling your lungs to capacity, and submerge yourself completely under the water.

While underwater, exhale all of the air completely out of your lungs, and visualize any obstacles in the way of your success with this spell leaving your body with the air. Do this three times. Let the water run out of the tub while you are lying in it, and do not get out until all of the water has drained. Let your body dry naturally; do not use a towel. When your body is completely dry, dress yourself and apply your favorite fragrance that was used in the herbal mixture. Leave your home and go out for the evening.

Within 28 days, you will have attracted attract the perfect lover.

It is never a good idea to work magic to make a particular person love you. First because it interferes with that person’s free will, and is thus against the Wiccan Rede. Secondly, because you will never know if they love you for yourself or because of your magic, which, in the long term, will be self-destructive. It is however, perfectly alright to work to bring love into your life.

This spell is most effective when worked on a Friday when the energies of Venus are strongest. Take a pink candle and carefully inscribe your initials into it about half way down. Surround the letters with 7 carefully engraved hearts.

Anoint this with 7 drops of Rose oil and place it in a secure holder surrounded by 7 small pieces of Rose Quartz. (Many rock and gemstone supplier sell bags of mixed stone chips, and if you know your stones, these are excellent for working spells.)

Before you light the candle, close your eyes and visualize the Goddess Venus standing before you, ask her to bring love to you and then light the candle. Keep it close to you whilst it burns. Ensure you have enough time to let it burn all the way down, without having to leave it unattended.

When your candle has burnt all the way down take the pieces of Rose Quartz and anoint each one with a drop of Rose oil and wrap them in a pink cloth. Tie this tightly with gold thread and carry it with you for a full cycle of the Moon, 29 days.

Prick a red apple full of holes with a needle, invoking the name and image of your beloved as you pierce. Sleep with this apple between your legs, as high as you like. The next day, dress the apple with honey and sprinkle it with cinnamon. Place it on an altar dedicated to Aphrodite and/or surround the apple with burning red candles.

When the candles have burned down, incorporate this apple into pie, cake, or pastry and serve to the one you love.

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
