Simple Spells

This simple spell is best performed at the beginning of the New Year or just after Yule, the first day of Spring, on your birthday, or any other date that represents a new beginning for you.

Gather together a long tinsel garland and some small candles. Using the garland, create a large spiral on the floor and surround it with the candles.

Walk the spiral as you would a labyrinth. Pause at the entrance to visualize what you wish for the New Year. Begin your walk at a pace that feels right, repeating the incantation:

“With each step I take,
with each breath I create,
let my spirit awake
for this wish I make.”

Once you reach the center, verbalize your wish. Retrace your steps out of the spiral, repeating the incantation again.

Notes:

  • Your spiral can be made from any materials you wish to use, such as flowers, shells, stones, leaves… etc.
  • If this is included in a group ritual, create a grouping of three spirals like those found at Newgrange in Ireland.

The Dragon King of the Sea can be called upon for help and assistance. Here’s how:

  • Whisper your message, needs, or desires over a loaf of bread.
  • Feed this bread to river or ocean fish.
  • Tell the fish to please deliver your message to the Dragon King of the Sea.

When help arrives, be sure to return with offerings of gratitude.

Here is a really simple spell to remove obstacles by tapping in to the power of the setting sun.

You will need:

  • A handful of sand or dry dirt

Holding the sand in your hand, face the setting Sun and ask His assistance by saying something like:

Ancient Sun, with Your last breath
Send obstacles now to their death
Destroy all fences, break all locks,
Rid me of all stumbling blocks
Bring them all to swift demise
So they can no longer rise
And hold me back from what I need
Or my ability to succeed
Crumble them just as this dust
So I move onward as I must.

Turn in a counterclockwise circle three times, while seeing obstacles being reduced to nothingness. Then, facing the Sun again, blow the sand from your hand. Know that the Sun will handle the problem.

Materials needed:

  • Small glass of orange juice

Take the juice outside at daybreak, and, facing east, offer it to the Infant Sun by saying something like:

O Infant born into the sky
I offer this to You on high
And offer thanks for Your arrival
And for the role You play in our survival

Turning clockwise, pour the juice on the ground in a circle around you. Then ask the Sun for a fresh start by saying something like:

Oh Infant Sun, I call to You
Who starts each day with life anew
Whose birth brings warmth and gives us joy
Whose light the darkness does destroy
Who separates the night from day
Who guides us with His gentle rays
Who gives us hope and makes us smile
Who makes each step we take worthwhile
Who inspires and cultivates
Fresh ideas and captivates
All who feel His golden light
I ask You, Infant Sun, so bright
To bring to me a new beginning
That puts me on the path to winning
What I desire most in my life ~
Free of needless stress and strife ~
Oh, bring to me a fresh new start
And I ask You, too, impart
Your courage as I tread anew
The path that I now ask of You
Bring this at once now, Infant Sun
As I will, so it be done.

Kiss your hand to the Sun and step over the juice circle. Go indoors and know that a brand new beginning is on its way.

Runes are an ancient alphabet that has been dated as far back as 8000 BCE. Although the Latin alphabet may be more efficient and practical for writing, the Runes convey much more than simple sounds and vowels; they are powerful symbols which carry great magical properties. According to Norse Mythology, Runes were gifts from the gods themselves. They radiate mana, magickal power, and can be used to deliver a blessing or a curse.

Here’s how:

Choose the Rune that best represents – and transmits – your desire.  Write that Rune onto a slip of paper. The qualities and powers of each Rune can be explored in the following posts:

Maneuver it so that the target of your spell thinks that he or she dropped this paper, or else place it within other papers that the target then picks up. The target has to accept the Rune willingly, even if they are unaware of it.

When the target takes up the Rune paper, especially if it is then placed in his or her pocket, he or she is effectively accepting the Rune – curse or blessing – whatever the case may be.

This is an especially nice way to gift someone with magick on special occasions, such as birthdays, graduations, weddings, or anniversaries.

Fairies and clovers are connected in lore and legend. For this spell, you will first need to find a four leafed clover. This is not always simple to do, and part of the reason the fairies will bless you with their presence is that you put forth quite a bit of effort in the search.

Once you have found the four leafed clover, lay seven grains of wheat over it. Concentrate on your desire to see or communicate with the fairy realm. If luck is with you, the fairies will appear or speak to you.

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.)

Here is a simple spell using the cleansing, purifying power of rain:

With water colors or chalk, draw or write the bad habit on a piece of paper. Immediately take it out into the rain. Let the rain dissolve and disperse the water colors or chalk. So shall your habit dissolve, cleansed by the sanctifying rain.

If you have ever been in a situation where personal items disappear from your desk, your room, or your bathroom, then this spell for protection against mysterious disappearance or theft is for you.

When you are away from the place you wish to protect, shield it with an often-used sign of protection:

  • The eye.

On a piece of cardboard, either draw two eyes or paste two eyes cut out from a magazine. Draw the shape of a masquerade-ball mask around the eyes with a thick felt marker and cut it out. Make as many as necessary to place in drawers, in bags, or on your desk.

This spell uses that feeling of being watched that occurs when we are in a room or gallery with photographs or paintings that feature people with prominent eyes.

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.
