~*Powders for and against Love*~

These powders were designed as sisters and foils of the other. One can bring love and help a relationship last. The other can break love spells, repel affection, and corrupt a relationship.

For a powder to attract the desire of others and soothe lover’s in peril:

Take the petals of a whole dried rose blossom and two petals from another and add them to the mortar. 

Next add sugar in half the ratio of the petals.

Add four tulip petals of a bright color.

Add two pinches of ground nacre (the shiny inner part of sea shells). If this is impossible, white sand from ocean shore may be substituted.

Grind these ingredients together until the powder is fine. Apply a tiny bit of the powder to the cheeks with a brush to attract the desire of onlookers. Sprinkle under your bed to attract a lover. Sprinkle over the threshold to bring a true friend and companion into your life. Throw into the path or onto the footsteps of quarreling lovers to soothe them. A powerful aid to love sachets and spells.

For a powder to break a love spell and repel affection:

Take petals of a whole dried rose and all but two to the mortar

Add twice as much charcoal as petals

Next is salt, a few pinches will do

And two petals from a white lily, torn to shreds and added in

Grind the mixture until you have a course powder. Sprinkle at the four corners of your home to break a love spell. Placed on the threshold and windows, or carried in a sachet it prevents them from being cast against you. If you desire to combat unwanted affections of someone, cast the powder where they will be the next to walk. Sprinkled under the bed, it will ensure the sleeper will not be able to attract a love. A powerful aid in curses designed to corrupt the love between others. I don’t recommend using it for this purpose, though.



EDIT: Someone recently reblogged this and added a good point that I should have mentioned. Nacre dust, when inhaled can cause irritation to the lung tissue and if exposure is prolonged can cause real damage. As with any powder you make or use you should take caution not to inhale the dust while you grind. Stay safe, kiddos.

Easy Aches and Pains Healing spell.

Things you actually need (I got carried away you really don’t need a whole altar):
Water, salt, a bowl, a white stone (make sure it’s nice and smooth), rose oil if you have it, and five pink stones (also not entirely necessary, but they help).

Place the stone in the empty bowl.

Add the salt and pink stones next and say:
Children of earth, bestow your blessing on this stone that it may purify and fortify. Blessed be.

Add the water next and say:
Child of water, bestow your blessings on this stone that it may heal me. Blessed be.

Finally, add six drops of the rose oil if you have it and then say while stirring the water clockwise six times:
Blessed goddess of healing, bestow upon this stone your grace that all these healing magics be bound to it for my aid. Blessed be.

Take the stone and rub it on the afflicted area, or place it on it. The stone will absorb the pain.

When you’re all better, place it back in the water and let the salt water cleanse the stone. Toss the water outside, or flush it as it is now tainted with your pain.

Blessed be! :D

An Incantation To Awaken the Scrying Mirror

Mirror Mirror reflect and shine,

Show what is now, ahead, behind,

Mirror Mirror black as pitch,

Reveal all things before your witch,

Mirror mirror on the wall,

Awaken to your witch’s call.


Back at my witchy ways for the first time in a while. I really needed this job I was after, so I gave myself a little extra something to help me out. I’m pleased to announce that I got the job, too. So this was definitely time well spent.


I made a cute little friendship amulet tonight. This one was made specifically for me as a sort of helper with a friendship I sometimes struggle with. But it could work just as well as an amulet to aid in garnering new friends in general!
What you need:
Dried lemon peel- element: water, purpose: promotes friendship

Catnip- element: water, purpose: eternal friendship

Lavender- element: air, purpose: harmony

Sage- element: air, purpose: wish fufillment

A small candle, preferably lavender

Something to hold the herbs and wax. I used a small square of calf skin.

Pen and thread of a color that represents friendship to you (I used blue)
Light the candle

Start by taking the square of cloth or calf skin, and write down a few symbols for friend ship. I used the Futhark runes Gefu (union) and Ing (completion or family), but you could use whatever feels best.

Next, grind up your herbs, always following a clockwise motion to promote their positive energies of friendship and peace. When they feel like they are tuned properly you may stop. (I hear them sort of “sing” when they’re all attuned)

Place this mixture over the rune on the square of cloth, and dribble the melted wax from the candle over it.

While the wax is still warm, fold it into a small, easy to carry parcel.

Take the thread and tie it thrice around the amulet, so the magic doesn’t seep.

There you go! You’re all done. Make to charge it every month by getting it some moonlight, or running it through an incense smoke. You could even follow the recipe of herbs above and use that as the incense. (It smells amazing!)

Blessings to all of you!




The most common question I receive goes something like, “Hi! I’m new to Paganism and I was wondering if you have a spell for [INSERT THING NEEDED HERE]?” I absolutely love helping you guys out with your problems and sharing spells that have worked for me or even helping to design a brand new spell for your situation. However, the most potent spells are always those you create yourself! So here it is: my do it yourself guide to making your very own spells!

The Magical Art of Walking as a Shadow

Invisibility magic is very tricky, and I think very overestimated much of the time. You’re not going to up end the laws of physics and cause light to stop reflecting off you and into the eyes of others. However, with a bit of practice and some magic, you can walk as a shadow, silent and unnoticed.

The first thing to understand about making yourself less visible is that it is more in how you carry yourself. Practice making yourself smaller, less significant. Slump your shoulders lower your eyes, let your body be loose, stroll casually. Visualize yourself blending in to your surroundings. These things do the bulk work of making you less visible.

Once you’ve practiced that enough that you feel comfortable, begin chanting the spell below while in that state. It will form a connection between the altered state and the words, so that eventually when you speak them, you will fall right into that state.

Finally, whenever you feel the need to disappear, recite the spell and imagine shadowy mist engulfing you, shrouding you from view. You’ll notice people will look over or through you, or avert their eyes entirely. Making direct eye contact with others will break the spell, so avoid it the best you can.

Here’s the incantation:

Shadows rise and shadows fall
Shadows all around me crawl
Shadows shroud me as a cowl
Shadows come conceal me now.

I’ve been using this spell since high school where I designed it to avoid being caught for dress code violations in the hallways. You can even cast it around an area if you get good enough at it. I did so once when we were cutting circle in my backyard to keep the nosey neighbors from running over with torches and pitchforks. When my friend was dropped off, she said that from the road, it appeared as of we were grilling, rather than setting up an altar. Haha
