If anyone in the home should fall sick, take a crystal bowl filled with well-water and wash the hands and the face of the patient with it. Then, carry it to the garden door, and call for the cat of the household. When she appears, say to her:
Cat spirit, bright as sixpence,
Chase the devil a long long distance.
His soul I hold in these drops of water ~
May he be routed before next moon’s quarter.
Then you must throw the water away onto the garden, so that it passes over the cat but does not fall on her. She will, as likely as not, run away as if in pursuit of some spirit, and for this you must thank her three times over by using her magickal name.
In throwing the water over her to the ground, you have created the magickal veil of Isis, which summons the demon of the illness and draws it away from your loved one so that the cat may carry it away from the house.
Before the next moon’s quarter, that is, before a week has passed away, the one who has fallen sick should be on the mend.
This magical wash is thought to make your wishes come true.
- 1 tablespoon sage
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon sandalwood
Combine all the ingredients in a pan, empowering them one by one. Bring to a boil and boil for three minutes. Add the mixture to cold wash water, and bless it saying:
My wishes will come to me,
to take care of myself and my family.
With harm to none and good will to all,
Mother mine hear my call.
Bring these desired goals to me,
So that me and mine will blessed be.
As you do the washing – floors, front door, porch steps, windows, etc… focus on what it is that you are wishing for.

Combine the following ingredients, empowering them one by one by stating aloud the specific function each will perform.
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (victory, success, to win favor of the Gods)
- 5 cloves (command and compel)
- 1 tablespoon orange zest (symbolizing gold and prosperity)
- 1 teaspoon ginger (luck)
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg ((luck)
- 3 drops pine essential oil (ward off negativity)
Bless the ingredients on your altar. Let the mixture rest in a dark area for a week. Take it out once a day, shake it, and then return it.
If possible, charge this potion under a full moon during its week of rest, to magnify the magical properties it contains. (The power of a full moon is present for three days before and three days after the actual night of the full moon.) After a week, add the mixture to a bucket of warm, clear water for washing.
A floorwash technically refers to the final rinse used to clean a floor or other interior surfaces. It should not be removed but allowed to air-dry, so that its power radiates into the surrounding atmosphere. In other words, the floor should be clean before applying the floor wash.
Traditional methods call for you to scrub the floor on your hands and knees. The repetitive motion and low concentration level needed allow for a shift in consciousness to take place. Incorporating a chant as you wash will boost the powers of the wash and help your goal to manifest even faster. Remember to be as specific as possible in the wording of your chant.
- Important note:
This wash seems to have the side effect of making those who come into contact with it hungry. It smells wonderful.

Items you’ll need:
- Floating candles
- A large bowl
- A pen
Create sacred space with candles, sage smudging, and setting up altars with powerful totems, or items of special significance.
If possible, stand or sit under the Moon. Allow yourself to feel a direct relationship to it, as a mover of the living waters of the Earth and within our own bodies.
Do a grounding exercise, to bring you out of the chatter of small talk and into ritual space. Feel the earth under your feet and shake out the tension in the body.
Place the large water-filled bowl in front of you, or in the middle of your gathering on a table.
Write what you are releasing on the candle that you will be floating. It’s not important that the writing shows up, just that the intention is there.
As you place the candle into the bowl, declare what you’re releasing.
Light the candle.
Allow yourself to feel the transfer of what you’re releasing to the candle. As a group focus on letting go into the water, holding hands if that feels right.
Celebrate this release by sharing a feast under the full Moon!
Allow the candle to keep burning in the bowl as a symbol of the letting go process. The flame is a purifier, and symbolizes the sparks of inspiration as well. If you blow out your floating candle, and your bowl is in your home, relighting it will remind you of your commitment. Place inspiring pictures and totems around it that remind you of who you’re becoming. Above all, give yourself kudos for honoring your own growth.
On a waning moon, on any day of the week except Saturday, place an ice cube into a bowl next to a white candle. Place lavender in a natural vessel (such as a shell) and white carnations in a vase with water.
With the help of the guardians,
Goddess and God,
I ask that my fear gently be lifted from me.
As the ice melts
so does my resistance,
and as the water turns to air
my fear opens to spaciousness.
I ask that this be done with ease
and for the greater good.
And I release this with love and trust
so be it.
And so it is.
Let the bowl remain in place until all the water has evaporated. Allow the candle to burn as long as you like.
War Water, also known as Water of Mars, draws on the power of iron. Although it’s most famously used to send notorious and powerful hexes, War Water also creates a powerful, protective shield that repels danger of all kinds. War water is easy to make, here’s a recipe: War Water
Before you initiate the bath, first cleanse the home with War Water, especially the room in which you will bathe.
- Add War Water to the bath water.
- Immerse yourself completely three times.
- Drain the water and allow yourself to air dry.
- As an optional extra, add seven or nine bay leaves to the bath.
War Water causes hexes but it also repels and removes them. Here’s a simple way to use it:
Add War Water to your bathwater. Light a white candle. As you soak, focus on the idea that the water is cleansing you and forming a protective barrier that no negative energy can penetrate. When you finish with the bath, visualize any negative energy that might have been attached to you, flowing down the drain. Dry yourself with a white towel.
War Water is not difficult to make, here’s a link to a simple recipe: War Water
by Madame Fortuna
Three nights before the cycle of the full moon, you should begin this three-day spell to remove the negative energy preventing abundance from coming your way. Repeat the following ritual bath on each of the three days leading up to the full moon with the last day being on the day the full moon starts. You should use the same candles for each of the three ritual baths.
The Ritual Bath:
To a warm bath, add money bath salts, which are made from a variety of formulas but generally have a strong patchouli scent. Light some general candles around the bath to reach the ambient lighting you prefer. Imagine a soft white light entering through your head and feet to cleanse the negativity from you. Focus on this goal as you enter the bath. Relax and meditate on the obstacles and stresses in your life melting away into the water.
As you drain the water from the tub, your negativity will follow the water down the drain.
Next, cast a circle and light a God and Goddess candle and place it upon your altar. Also place on the altar a green pillar candle that you have anointed with lodestone oil. Visualize your financial goals as already achieved. Put all of your energy into the candle. Finally, rub the candle down with a mixture of cinnamon and cloves. Light the candle and burn money incense while focusing on your goals.
Repeat this ritual for three days so that the last day is upon the full moon.
