It is never a good idea to work magic to make a particular person love you. First because it interferes with that person’s free will, and is thus against the Wiccan Rede. Secondly, because you will never know if they love you for yourself or because of your magic, which, in the long term, will be self-destructive. It is however, perfectly alright to work to bring love into your life.
This spell is most effective when worked on a Friday when the energies of Venus are strongest. Take a pink candle and carefully inscribe your initials into it about half way down. Surround the letters with 7 carefully engraved hearts.
Anoint this with 7 drops of Rose oil and place it in a secure holder surrounded by 7 small pieces of Rose Quartz. (Many rock and gemstone supplier sell bags of mixed stone chips, and if you know your stones, these are excellent for working spells.)
Before you light the candle, close your eyes and visualize the Goddess Venus standing before you, ask her to bring love to you and then light the candle. Keep it close to you whilst it burns. Ensure you have enough time to let it burn all the way down, without having to leave it unattended.
When your candle has burnt all the way down take the pieces of Rose Quartz and anoint each one with a drop of Rose oil and wrap them in a pink cloth. Tie this tightly with gold thread and carry it with you for a full cycle of the Moon, 29 days.
From: The Real Witches Year
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.

For friends who have had a misunderstanding, this will clear negativity.
You will need:
- Blue candle (for peace and healing)
- Lavender (for peace and purification)
- A rose (healing, love)
- Lavender oil
Here’s what to do:
- Bless ingredients.
- Anoint the candle with the oil.
Spirit, grant us clear minds and steady hearts,
a new road, and light burdens.
As I will, so mote it be.
Sprinkle the sugar in a circle around the candle, saying:
May our words and thoughts be sweet once more.
Sprinkle lavender in a circle outside the sugar, saying,
May our souls know peace.
Sprinkle rose petals in a circle outside the lavender, saying,
May our hearts know love again.
This spell does not bring you and your friend together again, nor does it dictate your actions. It merely asks that each heart be healed.
Gather your rose on the 27th of June; let it be full blown, and as bright a red as you can get. Pluck it between the hours of three and four in the morning, taking care to have no witness of the transaction.
Convey it to your chamber, and hold it over a chafing dish or any convenient utensil for the purpose, in which there is charcoal and sulfur of brimstone; hold your rose over the smoke for about five minutes, and you will see it have a wonderful effect on the flower.
Before the rose gets the least cool, clap it in a sheet of writing paper, on which is written your own name and that of the man you love best; also the date of the morning star that has the ascendency at that time.
Fold it up and seal it neatly with three separate seals, then run and bury the parcel at the foot of the bush from which you gathered the flower.
Here let it remain untouched till the 6th of July. Take it up at midnight. Go to bed and place it under your pillow, and you will have a singular and eventful dream before morning, or, at least, before your usual time of rising. You may keep the rose under your head three nights without spoiling the charm. When you have done with the rose and paper be sure to burn them.
The Summer Solstice love ritual is strongest done during the June full moon, but the ritual may be done on any full moon. It is best done out of doors, but may be done indoors.
For this love spell, you need:
- 1 rose quartz
- 1 crystal quartz
- 1 blue quartz
- 1 emerald
- 1 citrine
- 1 garnet
- 1 black tourmaline
- 1 bag
- petals of 3 roses
- red or orange cloth
- 1 large candle in red, gold or orange
Bathe before doing the ritual. Add flowers to your bath. If you shower, rub you body with a flower scented lotion or oil. Clean the stones with running water.
Clean your altar. Cover your altar with a red or orange cloth to honor the sun. Add some daisy blossoms to your altar. The daisy gets its name from day’s-eye because it turns to follow the sun.
Place the gold, yellow or red candle to represent divine Fire at the top middle of your altar. Sprinkle the petals of three red or pink roses on the altar. Place the rose quartz in the middle of the altar, make a circle around the rose quartz, with the other stones.
Pick up the crystal quartz in your left hand and say:
May I give and receive love as pure new snow.
Put the crystal quartz back and pick up the blue quartz in your left hand and say:
May I give and receive love as peaceful as calm water.
Put the blue quartz back and pick up the citrine in your left hand and say:
May I give and receive love as warm as sunlight.
Put the citrine back and pick up the emerald in your left hand and say:
May I give and receive love as strong as the oak tree.
Put the emerald back and pick up the garnet in your left hand and say:
May I give and receive love as bright as fire.
Put the garnet back and pick up the tourmaline in your left hand and say:
May I be open to love and may my love protect my loved one.
Put the tourmaline back and pick up the rose quartz in your left hand and say:
May I always be filled with love as I fill my lover with love.
Kiss the rose quartz three times. Gather all the stones with a few rose petals in both hands. While holding the stones and rose petals in both hands say:
My love is strong and surrounds all I do
I will always have all the love I need
Love is part of everything I do.
As you hold the stones and rose petals in your hands, you will know that love is with you. Shake the stones three times and then put the stones and a few rose petals in the bag.
This part must be done outside. Take the remaining rose petals and throw them in the air so the breeze can multiply your love. Every full moon take the stones out of the bag and hold them.

Use this invocation to ask the archangel of Venus, Anael, to bless and bring harmony to a romantic relationship. Light a candle at Anael’s hour (between 9 and 10am) and burn some rose incense. Scatter a few pink rose petals on your altar, and then say the invocation.
Archangel Anael, angel of the mystic planet Venus,
as I light this candle,
my consciousness opens to receive your divine influence
and the blessing of your wisdom and loveliness.
I envision you descending to meet me
as I rise in thought and in spirit to reach your exalted realms.
I am aware of the exquisite roselight within
which you enclose me as in an aura.
It is as if we come together to meet in a temple of the rose.
I ask that you hear my prayer
and that I may receive the benison of your assistance.
Please clear the way
so that the love between [your lover’s name] and myself
might blossom and flourish.
Please help us to draw light from our hearts
so that it may be perfectly expressed
in body, mind, soul and spirit.
you have the romantic affairs of humankind under your divine rulership,
I watch this candle flame burn
and behold the strength and the power of the bond of love
to overcome all resentment and disharmony.
I ask that you cleanse our vision of all illusion
so that we may see the truth and the beauty in one another
and transcend all earthly barriers and limitations.
If this petition is for all good in its conception,
may it succeed.
I see the archangel Anael
pouring out blessings upon us as if from a horn of plenty;
and these blessings merge into one brilliant shaft of light,
which penetrates the heart of our love
so that it may be healed and be whole.
Do this ritual the night before the full moon in any month. Before working this magic, bathe in rose or orange blossom gel or soap.

- A lock of your lover’s hair (7 or 9 hairs are enough)
- A cinnamon stick
- Petals of one red rose
- 3 rose quartz (cleansed by the method of your choice)

Having assembled your supplies:
- Grate the cinnamon stick in a wooden bowl.

Take a fully blooming rose, and chant:
________ and __________,
side by side,
Passion and desire fill your hearts and loins.
May this night be one of great delight!
Scatter the petals in the bed and sleep with your lover in it, and make passionate love together. The next day, gather the petals together, and put them into two pink or red cloth (preferably silk or linen) and keep under each one’s pillow.
This little spell will be an excellent tonic for those whose sexual excitement in a relationship is fading. Even better if performed just before a full moon, or in a moon travelling through Libra.
Some dates are just waiting for the right spark to make them truly passionate. Here are just the right ingredients to throw in that spark.
You will need:
- Red lipstick
- Rose Oil
Before your date, put on that red lipstick. Dab some oil on your temples and chest, saying:
From seed to bud,
Root to flower,
As a rose I open to the sun.
As all should open to my power!
Touch a dab of the oil onto your lips, press them together, and smile. Visualize yourself as a bright red rose opening, then go on your date.
On your altar place two red candles at either end. Before doing this, rub the two candles with rose essential oil. This spell is best begun on a Friday, the day of the week devoted to the Goddess Aphrodite, perform this task to attract your beloved.
Write your name on one candle, and your beloved’s on the other. If you do not know his or her name, simply write “my beloved” or “my true love.” Try to use language that will ensure positive magic. If you simply write “handsome” you may well end up with someone gorgeous, but who is harmful for you in some other way.
Each evening at seven, light the candles and move them slightly closer together. Carve into your candle a word of special significance to you, perhaps taken from insights while meditating. Perhaps the word “devoted” should be carved into your beloved’s candle. On your own, write the same. Meditate on this quality for several minutes, then snuff out the candles. Repeat this for seven nights, using a different quality each time, until on the seventh, the following Friday, both candles are finally standing as close together as possible. Light them and let them burn down and out.
If any wax remains, scatter it before you as you walk through a beautiful place, wishing it to bring good fortune to others hoping for love.
