Flowers from Good Friday church services may be used to protect cattle. Good Friday is indicated because of the connection to the resurrection. Because of cattle’s intrinsic connection with human fertility, any sacred day with fertility overtones, such as Beltane or Midsummer’s Eve, may be substituted, or a day with personal resonance for you if more appropriate.

  • Collect some of the flowers following the conclusion of the service or ceremony.
  • Burn the flowers, together with seven teaspoons of flour and three teaspoons of salt.
  • Gather up the ashes and sew them into a sachet. Reserve until needed.

Should a cow fall ill from natural or suspicious causes, break the sachet open and rub the ashes over the cow’s belly three times, always in the same direction.

Alternatively, place the unbroken sachet on the ground. Lead the cow over it three times, always walking in the same direction.

Did you ever meet someone, an elder perhaps, someone wise and calm, joyful and seemingly ageless, who seems to possess a deep inner peace? Someone who seems to have lived forever, seen everything and has the answers and advice to help us with all our problems?

If we don’t know someone like this, we wish we did, or we long for these qualities in ourselves—the patience and understanding to overcome any obstacle and the ability to learn from our challenges, while keeping a youthful glow and enjoying each day, and finding beauty in everything and everyone around us. Sounds impossible, right? We often attribute these characteristics to fantasy figures. But there truly are people who live this way, yet if we don’t personally know any of them, it seems like fantasy.

So, let’s use fantasy as a bridge to reality, through the magic of the unicorn. Legends of the unicorn speak of them as wise and immortal creatures. This spell is for the unicorn to help us age gracefully with a youthful carefree spirit. This is for people of any age, to ensure the lively and energetic qualities of vitality and joy and, in addition, to help us learn patience and gain wisdom.

You will need:

  • A unicorn statue of any size or color
  • A piece of white ribbon
  • Essential oil or other fragrance blend of your choice

Use your intuition when selecting the oil or blend of oils. Choose a scent that uplifts you and makes you feel cheerful or one you associate with happy memories. Sprinkle a few drops of the oil on the ribbon.

Visualize the unicorn, a wise and experienced sage. She has lived forever and endured many challenges with grace, and now she is bestowing her magic upon you. Make this visualization as detailed as you desire.

If this proves difficult, suspend your disbelief; pretend you are a child again. You meet a unicorn in the wild. Because you carry the white ribbon, the unicorn knows you are a kindred spirit. This ribbon is your link to the unicorn. You drape it around the unicorn’s neck and the two of you walk as companions through the forest. The unicorn confers wisdom upon you. This special wisdom contains the secrets for a happy life, whatever that may be for you.

Tie the ribbon around the statue. This is symbolic of your meeting with the unicorn and your initiation into her mysteries. The secrets will unfold throughout your life as you need them. One of the ways your higher spirit can help you discover what you need is through the use of symbols; the symbol of the unicorn can be a gentle and inspiring teacher and guide.

Speak this chant as you tie the ribbon:

Unicorn of legend, Unicorn of myth,
May your youthfulness and spirit stay with me.
Unicorn of mystery, Unicorn of magic,
May your endurance always offer possibility.
Unicorn of purity, Unicorn of power,
May your strength be at my side in every way.
Unicorn of inspiration, Unicorn of peace,
May your gentleness and grace bless all my days.

With a magical horn positioned precisely at the intuitive center (also known as the brow or third eye chakra), unicorns are strong symbols of psychic power.

To enlist a unicorn’s help in activating your intuitive abilities, relax, close your eyes, and envision yourself in a fairy forest. Journey deeper and deeper into the heart of the forest, knowing that you are approaching a unicorn spirit guide. In time, you will make contact.

When you do, get to know your guide:

  • What does he or she look like?
  • Where in the fairy forest does he or she like to hang out?
  • What is his or her name?
  • And what messages does he or she have for you about how to activate your intuitive gifts?

When your communion with this magical, inter-dimensional creature feels complete, thank him or her with an offering or a gift. Whatever feels right to you will do, but keep in mind that unicorns have been known to enjoy apples, crystals, shiny objects, and bubbly drinks.

In the future, you can consult with this guide to receive intuitive messages and learn how to further activate and calibrate your psychic and intuitive gifts.

Where there is an apple tree, a unicorn is never far. For this wish granting spell, visit an apple tree with a bottle of cold champagne and a moonstone.

Take a moment to relax and connect with the spirit of the tree, as well as its unicorn ally who is likely dwelling nearby, just beyond the veil. When you feel grounded and connected to the magical realm, safely open the champagne and pour it around the roots of the tree.

Then, speak from your heart. Explain that you have come in the hopes of enlisting the unicorn’s help in granting your wish. If you feel a rush of positivity and love, that is an affirmative: the unicorn desires to grant your wish. So speak your wish aloud. Then feel and express gratitude, and place the moonstone by the base of the tree.

This spell employs the unicorn’s potent power of purification to clear, and balance your energy field. First, place an attractive unicorn image on your altar or another flat surface. This could be a framed unicorn greeting card, a crystal unicorn statue, or any other unicorn imagery that speaks to you.

Close to the image, place a white rose and light a white votive candle. Sit comfortably in front of the image. Take some deep breaths and center yourself.

When you feel ready, silently summon a unicorn spirit guide and ask this guide to purify your energy. Then generously mist your entire body and the area around your body with rose water. Feel and express gratitude to your unicorn guide, and know that you can call on this guide regularly for help with energetic purification.

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.

Stand before your altar. Relax, and begin.

Feel the earth below you, the firm ground. Experience the earth as upholding you, as maintaining your weight. Feel the earth holding you, rather than you pushing against the earth.

Earth Mother, I stand upon you today and recognize that we begin with you and we will end with you. Uphold me now as I give praise, and support me as I receive blessing.

A child of the earth, I come before the Gods, the Spirits of Nature, and the Ancestors to offer praise. I seek to establish ties, to offer to them and open to them in return.

The waters support and surround me.
The land extends about me.
The sky stretches out above me.
At the center burns a living flame.  
I call out to the Keeper of the Gates.
Though I walk on uncertain paths,
Though I travel on unmapped ground,
Guide me, ward me, and relay my voice
As I offer prayers and praise.

In your mind’s eye, see the sacred center open before you: watch the mists part, see the door to the Otherworld open, or watch the spiral of the magic from between the worlds reveal the Otherworld. The Gates are now open, and the true work can begin.

I call out to my ancestors, those who came before me, you of my blood and you of my heart. I seek to give you praise, to remember you now, and to honour you.

Think on your ancestors: see their faces, smile with joy at their presence. If you have praise to give them, do so now.

I call out to the spirits of this place, the spirits of nature who are the soul of this land. I seek to give you praise, to call out to you now, and to honour you.

Think on the nature spirits: the faeries of the wood, the spirits of the land. If you have praise to give them, do so now.

I call out to the deities, first children, eldest and wisest. It is you to whom we look for guidance, and you who grant the greatest blessings. I seek to give you praise, to honour you now, to give you due worship.

Think on the deities: the great ones who bless our lives, who watch over us and show us that unconditional love. If you have praise to give them, do so now.

Optional: If you have a patron deity, one that you might wish to offer to specifically, now is the time to do that. If not, simply move to the next portion.

Today, I have given of my praise and myself.
With love in my heart and devotion on my tongue
I call out now, with all my soul:
Accept these offerings!

Take a moment to visualize, as you shout this last statement, all of your blessings, praise, and intent flowing up to the gods, out to the spirits of nature, and down to the ancestors. Hold yourself in that moment, watching your praises flow from you, and prepare yourself for what may be offered in return.

Now, take your divination tool up. If you don’t have one, you can use an athame, feather, wand, or even your hand.

As I have given to the Powers, I open to them. If there are blessings to be had, what might the nature of those blessings be?

Draw three symbols: one for the Ancestors, one for the Nature Spirits, and one for the Deities. Examine each one, think about the omen offered, and consider how it might translate into blessings.

Now, take these omens and concentrate on them, holding forth a cup of water or other beverage, saying:

Indeed, the Powers offer me blessings. Now I seek the manifestation of those blessings, the outpouring from the Powers that offer them. To those who enter this exchange, pour forth your blessings into my cup!

Envision the blessings before you, either as a mist, or a vortex of energy, or as pictographic representations of individual blessings. Watch them pour into the cup, mixing and infusing with the liquid already inside.

This in my hands is a holy cup of magic, the great blessings offered to me as joyful return of my praises to the Kindreds. Here are the deep waters that flow within the earth and that rain from the sky. These are the waters of life!

I accept this blessing, and I drink it with love and knowledge of the Powers!

(drink)

Now, with joy in my heart, I give thanks: To the Deities, thank you for your blessings. To the Nature Spirits, thank you for your blessings. To the Ancestors, thank you for your blessings. To all those Powers who have aided me, thank you for your blessings.

[If you made an offering to a patron above, make sure you thank him or her first: thank in the reverse order from invitation.]

To the Keeper of the Gates
For guiding me and warding me
Thank you for your protection.

In your mind’s eye, see the sacred center close before you: watch the mists gather, see the door to the Otherworld close, or watch the spiral of the magic from between the worlds close in on the Otherworld. The Gates are now closed, and this rite is ending.

Mother of all, to you I will return all things I have left unused. For supporting and upholding me in this rite, I thank you!

This rite is ended!

I came across a very ancient galdor spell. (A galdor spell is one which uses the sound of certain Viking Runes as an incantation.) Traces of its use can be found in many cultures. It is generally used against one who has wronged the wizard who pronounces the curse. Make sure you read the whole thing before you try it. Be aware that use by novices is not recommended.

  • Note: The runes used in the curse are shown next to the curse itself.

Here it is:

This spell requireth ye hand gesture to be made in ye following way. Extend thy power hand outward toward thy intended target with thy palm facing thy face. Fold thy thumb, first, third, and small fingers into thy palm. If this be done properly, then ye finger of death and damnation shall be extended towards the heavens.

Whilst making the sign of malediction indicated above, intone the following incantation in a great and wrathful voice:

YYYYYUUUUUUUUU

 

EEEEEESSSSSSSS

 

OOOOOHHHHHHHH

 

BBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEE

 

This being done, the wrongdoer’s fate is sealed. Great care must be taken with this most potent curse. It has been known in some instances for angry howling demons to take control of the intended target, causing great bodily harm to the unfortunate wizard.

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.
