In southern Germany, the eisbeilige – the iceman days – is the brief cooling trend in May. The “ice saints,” Mamertius, Pancratius, and Servatus, were celebrated on May 11. Along with Cold Sophie, these “strong lords” are pagan figures who were turned into Christian saints were said to bring cold weather during planting season. They’d kill a budding tree or a field of sprouting wheat the minute they touched it with their frosty fingers or blew on it with their freezing breath. Farmers learned early on not to set plants out until after the ice saints had come and gone.
Sometimes we find ice saints in our lives, people whose presence chills our blood and infects our happiness with frostbite. They’re self-righteous, hypocritical, and extremely annoying. They’re bigger control freaks than we are and insist that a household chore or a ritual has to be performed “their way or the highway.” Sometimes they threaten physical harm. Sometimes they’re psychic vampires who steal our energy. Sometimes they’re thieves who steal our stuff or our work.
They’re all toxic people. We need to get them out of our lives. One banishing technique I like – but which must be done with finely focused aim and a strong intention to harm none – is to put the ice saint right where he or she belongs: in the freezer.
Write the person’s name and behavior on a piece of paper and bind it with black thread and thirteen knots. Say out loud exactly what the ice saint does that is toxic. Say out loud that you want to bind the behavior. You’re not out to injure the person, just to protect yourself and get him or her out of your life.
Put the piece of paper in a little jar, fill it with water, and put it in your freezer. Then take real-life action to get the ice saint out of your life.
This spell is for freezing out a witness or legal opponent, but it can be used for any situation where you wish to exclude someone from meddling in your affairs. For this spell to work, you must know the person’s name.
How to do it:
Write the name on a piece of paper (parchment is good) in pencil or India ink (preferably). Fold the paper in half, then in half again until you can’t fold it any more. As you do this, imagine that person’s influence freezing / stopping, that they cannot do anything until the thaw.
Then soak the paper in liquid (vodka works well but water is fine) and put it into a corner of your freezer. Leave it there for 30 days.
Note: If more than one person is involved, do each name on a separate piece of paper, and work each spell separately.
This spell works best if started on the day after a full moon so that the moon is waning for the first 15 days. It should stop the person or persons from influencing people or things about your business. It freezes them out.

Here is a spell for “freezing out” and getting rid of people, situations, and whatever else you don’t want to have in your life anymore. Just be sure that you really don’t want whatever it is that you put into this spell because it really does work.
You will need:
- Black Candle
- Aluminum Foil
- Picture of whatever (whoever) it is you want to get rid of – or you can just write it (names, situation, circumstances, etc) on a sheet of paper. Be as specific as possible.
Now, light the candle, lay the picture and/or the paper on a sheet of aluminum foil. Fold the foil with the paper/picture on it seven times. Seal the package with wax from the burning candle.
While you are sealing it say:
“No longer can you enter my life,
no longer can you cause me strife,
on ice you go. on ice you stay,
go you now away this day.”
Then place the package in the back of your freezer knowing it is done. Leave the package there until you are sure that the spell has worked. You can then remove it and drop it into a dumpster far from your home.

The primary purpose of ice magic is transformation. Ice is a combination of water and air. Once frozen, if fire is added, the ice melts.
Floating candles in a bowl of water and ice may seem like a simple type of spell, but it calls for a natural balance to take place. Moreover, writing your problems on paper and freezing them may also seem like a simple spell, but it is highly effective.
One of my favorite magical uses for ice is the “stop something in its tracks” type. In other words, after an argument, I am not above writing my aggravation down on paper and freezing the paper until such a time as I can comfortably deal with the problem. Once I’m ready, I simply thaw out the paper and deal with it. You can perform this type of magic for any sort of negative trait within yourself that you wish to be rid of.
Likewise, you can also manifest with snow and/or ice. Place magnets or symbols into a large ball of snow, or freeze them into a block of ice. Then allow the snow to melt as it removes any obstacles between you and your goal and releases the energy to bring you your wish.

Bury a piece of paper in the snow with a wish for something you want to hold or freeze in place. This is a great spell for anyone wishing to maintain a title or honor. It will stop your competition from achieving success. If snow is not available, bury the paper in crushed ice and place in the freezer.
Undines are female derivatives of water spirits. Like the other elements, the undines contribute to the universal life force through purification, movement and sound.
This spell uses the properties of water turned to ice. Pour spring water into a small, new paper or plastic cup. Freeze.
When you are ready to perform the spell, take the cup out of the freezer. Place upside-down in a bowl. Hold your hands over the ice and name what has frozen in your financial affairs. Blow on the ice three times. And chant:
Warmth of love.
Allow the ice to thaw, visualizing the financial difficulty flowing away from you. When it is thawed, pour the water on a house plant – our outside around a tree or shrub. As you pour the water out, think about how the energy of spirit and the warmth of love can now freely flow through you to nourish and heal those around you.
