Solve A Problem Spells
As we travel we are all faced with choices. Hecate is the goddess of the crossroads. Go to her if you need to make a decision in matters having to do with travel or life opportunities.
Take three apples and go to a three-way crossroads that is not busy with traffic, ideally at night. Cut each in half so the pentacle formed of the seeds is showing. Thinking of your choices, place one-half of an apple at each intersection. Then make your wish and place the last three halves in the center, where the roads join. Ask for Hecate’s help in making your decision.
Go home and eat an apple or drink an apple beverage before bed. Dream of possibilities. Save apple seeds to plant in the crossroads area next spring, and ask again for Hecate’s blessings.

The chant below brings swift justice to those who treat you unfairly. Take caution in using it, though, especially if you have also behaved inappropriately. Hecate’s justice knows no bounds. She sees to it that all involved get precisely what they deserve.
Hecate, Dark One, hear my plea.
Bring justice now, I ask of thee!
Right the wrongs that have been done,
Avenge me now, Oh mighty one.
Turn misfortune back to those
Who cause my problems and my woes.
And heap upon them karmic debt
Lest they all too soon forget
Their wrongful actions, words and deeds
Don’t let them get away scot free.
Bring them forth from where they hide
Bring swift justice-wield your knife.
Hasten, Dark One, hear my plea,
do what it is I ask of thee.

For this spell to find a lost cat or other small pet, you’ll need the assistance of a tree, rock, or other outdoor entity—preferably one in your yard or very near your home. Take one of your pet’s favorite toys and some pet food to the tree. Tell the tree about your pet and that you are concerned because of how long he or she has been missing. Ask the tree if it will help you by providing a beacon for your pet to follow to get home. Leave the pet food near the tree. If a small rock gets your attention, bring it and the pet toy into the house. Keep them near the door. Every time you pass the toy, thank the tree for its help in providing a beacon for your pet.

A difficult person is someone who throws their emotional energy at you , causing you upset and shock, making you feel defenseless. A difficult person is someone who persecutes you or obstructs your path in life. A difficult person is someone who tries to cause you emotional or physical harm or damage your reputation. A difficult person is someone who tries to steal your belongings, wealth, or creativity.
Such people can be dealt with, but the golden rule is that you should not at any juncture wish them harm. What you must wish them is self- knowledge. You can direct the thought energy of self-knowledge to them in such a way that they will lose their sting toward you.
Do this exercise twice a day, in the morning and evening. Continue it for 3 or 9 days. Longer, if necessary.
Sit quietly, focusing upon the individual and picturing them in your mind. Then direct this thought toward them, speaking it out loud either three or nine times.
“May all blessings flow to you. May self-knowledge flow to you. I reclaim the power you have taken from me, it is mine to take back, it is my right. May love and good fortune come to you now. As I speak now you are no longer a problem for me! Your difficult energy dissolves into wisdom. You regard me with respect.”
At the end of this clap your hands three times very loudly to seal your invocation.
This exercise works with great effect. Think of this as a spiritual kick in the backside that leaves no bruise, creates no harm, and gives you a compassionate view of the situation and the difficult person or people concerned.
Here’s a magickal Feng Shui exercise designed to bring helpful people into your life. First you must determine where the Helpful People and Travel area is located in your home. Each room has it’s own Helpful People and Travel area as well, so if you need to limit this to one room, that will be fine too. Just treat the door to the room as the front entrance. Here’s a diagram:
First clear the area of clutter, and clean it. Once that is complete, you can further clear the energy by burning sage, or using an essential oil such as lavender to purify the space.
Now, set up three silver containers for three different tasks of attracting helpful people:
- One small silver box with a lid (real silver, silver-plated, or even a paper box painted silver).
- One silver envelope large enough to hold documents (can be painted, covered with a silver wrapping paper, or even made of aluminum foil).
- One larger container, like a large vase, paper grocery bag, purse, or box (spray-paint it silver if you like, or cover it with silver fabric, sequins, beads, etc…)
The small silver box is used for events that need help now (3 days to 3 weeks). Those little jewelry boxes with red velvet inside work great, as the red is an activating color. This box can hold up to three requests at any one time.
The silver envelope is used for things that last months (scripts, contracts, invitations). Remove the item when you’ve been adequately helped.
The large container is for things that stay around for a LONG time (your doctor, your business clients, your family). You can place the name of everyone you meet in this container if you wish. Because this container is for the long term, I would recommend that you invest time and/or money to make it beautiful.
On paper, write the names of people or projects you need help with, phrased in a positive way. For example:
- The insurance adjuster is helpful to me.
- I always have help when I need it.
- Thanks to my helpful doctor, I am now completely healthy and pain free.
- I have plenty of good help with my remodeling project.
- My neighbors are helpful and kind.
From Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life
by Karen Rauch Carter
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.
You will need:
- A tarot deck and the following cards:
Justice – The World – Nine of Cups
- Six candles of the following colors:
Gray – Orange – Indigo – Purple – Black – Gold
First, you must recite the opening chant:
“I move outside the limits of time to work my spell
The dragons help me weave the universal energy
The things that now exist become what I desire
The tides of Magick answer unto me”
Arrange the cards in order, left to right: Justice, The World, and then Nine of Cups. Arrange the candles below the cards in this order: gray, orange, indigo, purple, black, and gold. Light the candles and after clearing your mind, say:
“Gray mists to hide what I must do.
Orange light to change my luck and give me power.
Indigo strength to stop gossip and lies.
Purple power to break bad luck and drive away evil.
Great black walls to protect me from my enemies.
Sun-gold beams to give me fortune and success.
I stand surrounded by these powerful lights.
I ask the dragon’s help to succeed in my case.”
Concentrate a few moments on the cards and your objective. After this say the closing chant:
“My thanks to the dragons, great and small, who came to answer my call,
We wove the Magick, wild and free, And as I will, so shall it be.”
Place the candles in a safe place so they will not catch anything on fire, such as in a sink or even in the bath tub, and allow them to burn themselves out.
From: The Spell Cabinet
- 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!
Petition the Goddess Hecate to break your block through the use of her sacred emblems. Hecate’s attributes include:
Collect charms representing these images to place on a charm bracelet. This is a spell in progress. Each time you locate a charm, consecrate it to Hecate and request that she unblock your roads. Wear the bracelet or carry it in a conjure bag, especially when free access is needed.
Other symbols associated with Hecate, and which could be included are:
Crossroads, New Moon, Number 3, Dagger, Serpent, Polecat, Owl, Willow, Star
source: Coven Of Hecate
Here is a simple ritual to invoke the power of Hekate to unlock doors which until now have been closed to you, to create openings in the impenetrable areas of your life, or to open and unblock areas in your self that have been locked away:
You will need the following:
- A three way crossroads in your area that offers some privacy.
- Bake or buy a small cheesecake – this will be left as an offering
- 13 small black candles
- A black candle large enough to burn through the night.
- Wine, honey, or milk (or a mixture of the three) to offer as a libation at the crossroads.
- Three keys – also to be left at the crossroads.
Spend some time thinking about what it is that you would like Hekate to unlock for you in your life while gathering your supplies. When you have everything gathered together, light the larger black candle and begin chanting:
You walk with me
Like no other
Continue chanting as you leave your house and go to the crossroads. Once there, spend a few moments in silence allowing the Dark Mother, Hekate to make herself known. You might hear dogs barking, you might see shadows in the trees, you might hear horses, or the wind might speak.
When you feel that She is there, explain that you are leaving the cake as an offering, ask for Her help in unlocking whatever it is that you need help with. Use your own words, speak out loud and with confidence.
Place the cheesecake on the ground, light the candles, and then pour a libation. If it is inappropriate or a fire hazard to leave the candles burning, pour the libation over the lit candles and the cake, if not, pour the libation in a circle around the cake.
Now, explain that you are leaving three keys as a demonstration of your willingness to allow the Goddess to work in your life. Place one key at each corner of the crossroads. As you place the key, make a statement of thanks.
As soon as that is done immediately leave the area without looking back. When you get back to your home, spend some time in silence sitting with the candle you lit before leaving the house. Allow it to burn completely down.
The following items can be substituted in a pinch:
If you do not have access to a crossroads, an image of a crossroads, such as a photograph, or drawing will be fine. If you have a private place outdoors, take the image with you and complete the ritual as if the image is the crossroads, leaving everything behind just as you would if you had gone to a crossroads. The next day (if the items cannot remain as is) you can collect everything that was left outside – these items should then be buried nearby or burned.
If you don’t have a place outdoors, the ritual can be done indoors. When it is complete, take the cake, the wine, and the keys outside where they should stay overnight. You can then collect what’s left of them in the morning and bury them nearby or burn them.
Red, white, and yellow are colors sacred to Hekate and can be substituted for the black candles.
If you don’t have keys, you can make them either by forming aluminum foil into “key” shapes, cutting key shapes from cardstock, or finding a pictures of keys in a magazine or newspaper and cutting those out. Alternatively, an old credit card can be cut into 3 pieces.
