On a waning moon, on any day of the week except Saturday, place an ice cube into a bowl next to a white candle. Place lavender in a natural vessel (such as a shell) and white carnations in a vase with water.
With the help of the guardians,
Goddess and God,
I ask that my fear gently be lifted from me.
As the ice melts
so does my resistance,
and as the water turns to air
my fear opens to spaciousness.
I ask that this be done with ease
and for the greater good.
And I release this with love and trust
so be it.
And so it is.
Let the bowl remain in place until all the water has evaporated. Allow the candle to burn as long as you like.
When using fire and ice together, you are calling for a natural balance to take place. It can be a balance of the self, a balance of a situation, or even a balance of the checkbook. This is a great spell to do during an Eclipse.
You will need:
- A large clear glass bowl
- Equal amounts of water and ice
- 3 floating candles (these can be multicolored, white, gray, or brown)
- Handful of salt
Place the ice in the bowl. Add the salt and say, ” I cast off any negativity and purify this ice. It is blessed by the Goddess and the God.” Add enough water to make the surface smooth, and bless it in the same manner.
Place the candles in the bowl and say:
“I call upon my higher self
to bring my being into harmony.
I will myself to be balanced in all situations.
So mote it be!”
Clap your hands three times and light the candles. This is a good time to reflect on which areas of your life need balance the most. It also is a beautiful sight to sit and watch the ice melt while the flames dance. Spend an appropriate amount of time in reflection before you close your circle or leave the area.
From: Elemental Witch
Calling a situation into balance can be a bit tricky. For example, suppose you are upside down in your finances – more going out than you can bring in. You can use fire and ice to call for a balance. Here is a spell that can be used to bring balance to any situation.
You will need the following:
- An empty paper milk carton (quart size)
- Water, to fill the milk carton
- A gray or brown taper candle as tall as the milk carton
- A pencil
- Piece of string
- Cooking spray
- Large bowl or cauldron (gallon size)
- Sand or soil
Spray the inside of the carton with cooking spray. Tie the string to the wick of the candle. Wrap the other end of the string around the pencil. Place the candle in the milk carton and use the pencil to hold it upright by placing the pencil across the top of the carton. (You may cut small notches in the top of the carton if needed.)
Carefully fill the carton with water, leaving about an inch of the candle above the water line. Place it in the freezer. When the water is frozen solid, tear the carton away. Place the candle in your cauldron, or other large ceremonial bowl, to which a thick layer of sand or soil has been added.
Note: The bowl or cauldron must be deep enough that the layer of sand or soil will easily absorb all the melting ice without covering (and thus putting out) the lighted candle.
Say, “I call upon the universal forces of my Lord and Lady to bring balance to my life. I will that my current financial situation become balanced in the most beneficial way for me and my loved ones. As I will it, so it shall be.” (This can be reworded to fit your specific situation exactly.)
As you light the candle, visualize yourself happily spending and receiving money in perfect balance, always having enough for what is needed. Allow the candle to burn completely down, and then pour the water and sand out under a tree.
Another Note: This spell can be modified to fit any situation in which balance is needed. Simply change the wording of the spell, and visualize the desired balance.

Take a horse shoe and put it around a red candle. Put the candle in a darkened room in the middle of a table. Write what it is you want on a piece of paper with a quill pen dipped in black ink.
Chant the following as you write:
What I want I write here
Please take my dream and bring it near
What I want Is What I should get
Let all my dreams Now be met
Now take the paper and fold it in a square of four creases. Hold it over the candle with a pair of tweezers and let it burn. Picture yourself with your wish fulfilled as you burn the paper send waves of love at the image you conjure of your self.
“O cheerful yellow, Penetrate my mind Improve my memory

Sit quietly for a time, thinking about the fairy folk, be aware of their featherlight touches your body. Listen for their musical voices in your mind. Talk to them if you wish. When communication is finished, stand in the center of the circle. Raise your arms high, saying:
” All thanks and blessings be, To those of air, earth, sky, and sea. Go in peace. And all shall be well.”
Blow out the candles starting in the south and go counterclockwiseor widdershins.
- Purple (votive) candle
- Pen and paper
- Vegetable oil
- Fireproof dish
- Cayenne pepper
Inscribe the candle with your name, then draw the infinity symbol (a horizontal figure 8), both above and below your name. Anoint the candle with vegetable oil and roll it in cayenne pepper. (If you hold the candle by the wick, you can avoid getting oil and cayenne pepper all over your fingers.)
Write a brief description of the situation on the paper and place it under the candle holder. Light the candle and say:
“Wax and herb, now bring me power
That grows with every passing hour.
Bring control back unto me.
As I will, so mote it be!
This is a easy spell for peace, it helps relax and calm your soul.
Items you will need
- White candle
- Full moon
- Take your needle and write peace in the side of the candle.
- Take the needle again and prick your finger.
- Rub your blood all over the candle.
Absorb energy into your breath and breathe it into the candle.
Then light your candle and stick it in the ground, being sure that the area around the candle is free of anything that may catch fire. Leave the candle overnight allowing it to burn completely down. As you sleep think of the peace coming to you in the night. Then it shall be.
This is a very simple spell. You will need two candles, a white one for you and a blue one for friends and family. As the full moon is rising, light the candles and say:
“I light these candles for luck for me,
and for my friends and family,
So they will burn by day and night,
and bring us joy by their bright light.”
Allow the candles burn until they are done. If something happens and you must put them out, pinch each flame out and say the following:
Little flame wait for me
I’ll be back and bright you’ll be.
Don’t blow them out it will stop the spell. Be sure to relight the candles later when you can allow them to burn completely down.
- Three small candles
- A plate
Put the candles on the plate and spread sugar all around them. Light the candles. Call for assistance from these three angels. Rafael, Michael, and Gabriel. Ask that three wishes be granted.
- A wish for business or money.
- A wish for love.
- Something impossible.
Place the plate with the burning candles on your altar, next to a window, or on a high shelf. Allow the candles to burn completely.
Publish this spell on the 3rd day after you requested the wishes by mailing it to another person, posting it to a Internet news group or announcing your thanks to the saints in a newspaper classified ad. See what happens on the 4th day.
