Prick a red apple full of holes with a needle, invoking the name and image of your beloved as you pierce. Sleep with this apple between your legs, as high as you like. The next day, dress the apple with honey and sprinkle it with cinnamon. Place it on an altar dedicated to Aphrodite and/or surround the apple with burning red candles.
When the candles have burned down, incorporate this apple into pie, cake, or pastry and serve to the one you love.
If you suffer from a real sense of defilement, petition the spirits of the sea to provide healing and cleansing. Although there are many such spirits, Aphrodite and Yemaya are particularly powerful and benevolent. Petition either spirit or both. They are compatible with each other.
Journey to the beach with a bouquet of roses. (Six yellow roses for Aphrodite and/or seven white roses for Yemaya.)
Stand in the shallow water. Dip each rose in sea water and then massage it, gently, one at a time, over your body, stroking downwards: down your legs, down your arms, as if you are removing something. Use a light touch. Toss each rose into the sea after you’ve used it to cleanse yourself.
When all the roses have been given to the ocean, enter deeper water and allow significant waves to pass over you, seven for Yemaya, six for Aphrodite. If you’re afraid of the deep water, or if you are not a strong swimmer, sit or recline in the shallows and let the water pass over you.
Ask these beautiful, benevolent spirits to cleanse you and replenish your aura and energy. When you are done, turn around, walk out of the water and go home.

Nemesis, also called Adrasteia (the inevitable). She is portrayed as a winged goddess wielding a whip or a dagger, and often holding an hourglass. She was the goddess of destiny, and divine anger against mortals who broke moral laws or taboos. Nemesis was a harsh, unremitting force representing acceptance of what must be. At times she would intercede with the Fate deity Atropos to allow a longer lifespan.
Often we have someone in our lives who consistently works at being a real trial to us. This person is sometimes called “our Nemesis,” which isn’t accurate. The problem, however, can fall under the power of the goddess Nemesis. She can remedy or sweep away interpersonal problems, provided we ourselves are not the cause of them. If we are contributing to the upset, she will stand back and make us work it out. So before you call upon Nemesis, be certain that you have rightfully accepted your share of the responsibility.
Use a black candle for Nemesis, anointing it from the end to the wick with patchouli or orange oil. This will help to create a balance or bring your life back into balance. Place a sliced apple in a dish next to the candle. Light the candle and sit facing it. Explain everything about the interpersonal problem to the goddess in your own words. Then say:
The hand of Nemesis balances the scales of justice.
She untangles the threads spun by the Fates.
Lift the burden of this problem, great Nemesis.
Guide me to the solution.
If there can be no harmony, separate us one from the other.
Untangle my life-thread, Nemesis.
This I do ask with a sincere heart.
Now sit quietly and listen with your mind. Meditation at this time can often calm you and provide possible solutions. You may even be told that you must make decisions and follow through with them. Listen, but look at everything logically. Some solutions may be too drastic and painful to implement. In this case, ask for an alternate solution to the problem.
From Moon Magick
In this ritual the Greek Goddess Nemesis, a deity of fate and vengeance, is seen in the role of being the complementary opposite of ones ego referring to the inner self as the center of both personalities. Habits and actions taken against ones real desires create the opposite to the same degree and thereby form an anti-personality of ones ego, which in this case is identified with the principle of Nemesis.
Disturbances on the plane of reality due to actions against ones subconscious desires can be eliminated by ritual union with this personal demon-sister/brother and enable one to reach ones inner self, which is defined as the mean value of both the personalities.
The effect of this ritual, if performed correctly, would by definition be fatal. Therefore the operation is strictly limited to the part of the psyche which the magician wishes to explore. A Sigil representing this portion of the psyche is forcibly activated during the ritual in order that the magician may seek answers to his problems within the chosen area in the personality.
No specific wishes or desires can be used for this purpose, only general ones. This is a necessary restriction to avoid being overwhelmed by any unpleasant effects. The magician should be aware of this when constructing the Sigil.
The ritual is performed sitting on the ground in the posture of the Rune Perthro. The head may rest on the lower part of the arms, and the face should be covered by the cowl of the robe.
Perthro is the rune of fate. Perthro is not a gentle or passive rune, although it is aligned with a feminine polarity.
Perthro is the relentless force of water. Unstoppable, controllable only to a point, and then, suddenly – with no warning – the water is out of control, drowning everything and smashing it to bits and pieces as flotsam is slammed and hammered into buildings or structures. Perth clears a path for change.
Statement of intent:
It is my will to take a step towards the center of my self by union with my opposite through this Sigil!
Creating the Sigil:
Write out your statement of intent, modifying it in any way that feels appropriate. Then remove all the vowels from the sentence, and rewrite all the remaining letters. Next remove all the repeating letters so that it’s now just a string of non repeating consonants. Make a symbol or picture by combining the remaining letters with the Perthro symbol. Play with your design until it looks aesthetically pleasing to you and the combination of the letters are hidden. In other words, you want it to look not at all like what it started out to be.
Now, let the meaning of the symbol, let your statement of intent go completely. Allow yourself to forget the Symbol’s meaning, forget the desire behind the original sentence completely. Remembering the desire ruins the ultimate effect. Destroy all the things you’ve written to make the Sigil. Let nothing be a reminder of its meaning. Remember only what it looks like.
Charging the Sigil:
This specific Sigil will be charged by having the image of it in your mind as you do the conjuration:
The following incantation is given while visualizing a winged figure of opposite sex who approaches the magician. The figure wears the chosen Sigil on his/her breast and is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
mighty, terrifying and beloved sister.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are the goddess of my god,
you, who are the demon of my demon.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are the demon of my god,
you, who are the goddess of my demon.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are part of me which I am not,
you, who are the counterbalance on the scales of my fate.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, whose wings carry us to our mutual central Kia.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
you, who are my ultimate fear,
you, who are my ultimate desire.
you, with whom to unite is the sigh of
ecstasy and the silence of death.
Come to me oh Nemesis,
for you are my path and I am our aim
I call upon you to meet me in this Sigil.
Come to me oh Nemesis
and guide me through this Sigil to our mutual central Kia!
Start hyperventilation during the reading out of the incantation. The visualized figure with the Sigil coming closer and closer to finally melt into your own body. When this point is reached shout out:
ZodACAM VaPAAHe ANANAEL ZoDA Ah!
(I move the wings of the secret wisdom within me!)
End the ritual with laughter – this will banish any negativity, and cleanse and heal you and your surroundings.

To bless a special candle take a hand-dipped beeswax candle appropriate for your purpose. On the night of the full moon, when the moon is visible in the sky, either go outdoors or look at the moon through the window. Hold the candle in both hands and present it to the moon saying:
Hail Aradia, Queen of Light;
Stand I naked in thy sight;
May this candle blessed be;
Diana and Hecate.
The phrase ‘stand I naked’ does not mean ‘without clothes’. It actually refers to being vulnerable and in need of the assistance of the Triple Moon Goddess.

Juno may be petitioned for safety and shelter. Her ancient Roman temples housed shelters for abused wives. Herein though is the catch: Juno is intrinsically tied to legal marital rites. You must actually be legally wed to request her assistance with this matter. She will assist with former husbands as long as once upon a time, there was a legal wedding ceremony. If you were a June bride, consider yourself automatically under her protection.
The spellwork is simple:
- Burn orris root powder on lit charcoals.
- Offer Juno one beautiful rose and tell her what you need.
Oshun is not only a goddess of love, sensuality, and sexuality – she is also the protectress of women and children. She is the orisha who is known to alleviate menstrual disorders, help us heal from physical, sexual, or psychological abuse, and increase our fertility – not an orisha to take lightly!
Oshun abides by the riverside. To invoke her spirit and pay homage to her sassy ways, you will need to work with an intimate partner.
- Begin by setting out a brass or ceramic candleholder
- Place a few cinnamon, honey, or orange-scented candles on the candle holder.
- Light the candles.
- Gaze into the flames and reflect on the beauty and mystery of Oshun
In unison, whisper the praise poem:
Barewa lele (The beautiful one emerges)
Umale (The spirit-god)
Arele umawo (One of the family reincarnated)
Repeat until you are both relaxed and comfortable.
- Spread honey on each other’s lips and elsewhere if you’d like.
- Share the honey between you.
- See where this leads.
Afterward, as you go through your normal routine. Pay attention, and look around you and see which of Oshun’s gifts appeal to you. Collect a few items such as tumbled glass, driftwood, or river rocks. Bring these back to your altar at home.

Birthday rituals around the world are conducted and candles are placed on a cake and blown out, the one whose birthday it is, blows out the candles and makes a wish, this in itself is an act of magick, and the person blowing out the candles feels a sense of well being when this is done. The cake is then cut and eaten and those eating it each make a wish, by doing this they are participating in magick.
Many of us may remember making a wish and blowing out candles on our birthday cakes as kids; some of us still do this today, but when we were kids many of us were probably completely unaware that by making this wish by the light of a burning mini candle in an offering of flour and sugar we were working our first simple spells. With birthdays being a great day of astrological alignment for use, it’s a great time to set aside a few minutes to do some wish magick not unlike that stuff we did as kids.
One thing is the simple use of a small incantation when blowing out your birthday candles that you might be presented with. Recite this while visualizing your wish. When you blow out the candle see your wish and desire being carried on the smoke up to the Gods and the Universe to fulfill.
”A year has come,
A year has passed,
I’ll make my birthday wish at last.
Magick powers old and new,
Make my birthday wish come true!”
Candle magick is ideal on your birthday so even common, simple candle magick with a single candle in a color corresponding to your astrological sign, carved with your zodiac symbol and name, along with any runes or symbols representing a specific desire, can be a great way to cast a simple wish spell for yourself. Use these color correspondences to find your candle color:
- Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): Sky Blue
- Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): Lavender
- Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19): Red
- Taurus (Apr 20-May 20): Green
- Gemini (May 21-Jun 21): Pink
- Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22): Silver
- Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22): Gold
- Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22): Navy
- Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22): Green
- Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): Red
- Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): Navy
- Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): Brown
I have also seen wish spells for birthdays that involve taking a piece of paper or parchment and inscribing it with a rune representing something you desire for the coming year and place it under a new potted plant. As you tend the plant in the coming year you are symbolically tending your desire represented on the paper under the pot.
Ideally magick worked on your birthday should be magick that might be considered “selfish” in nature. It’s a day to honor yourself and to prepare for seeing your wishes come to fruition over the next year. But, while doing that, also acknowledge and celebrate any accomplishments as well. Always give thanks for what you have before asking for more!
You can also use the cake itself as part of the magick. A birthday cake prepared with love brings positive energy to the recipient.
Food is a magickal tool and can be used for positive change in your life. The preparation of food, with a particular intention in mind, is old magic. Look at food as sacred, let the act of preparing, cooking and eating food be a sacred act. When preparing foods for specific magical purposes, cook with purpose and care. Keep your goal in mind, love, money, protection, health, fertility, sex, strength, psychic awareness. Always stir clockwise, clockwise motion is thought to be in harmony with the apparent movement of the sun in the sky, and has been linked with life, health and success.
It is never too early or too late to practice magick. So whenever your birthday is, give it a little bit more magickal consideration. It’s a day that is all about you, so honor yourself and the Divine within.
