I made my first spell jar! Its purpose is to protect and cleanse my home, or the room it is in. It’s perfect for my dorm, and very easy to make!
🌱Everything inside this jar has some association with protection or cleansing or banishing negativity and creating a loving environment.
-3 dried bay leaves with various protection and safety sigils drawn on them
-charged full moon water
-a pinch of black pepper
-some lemon peel
-a small piece of clear quartz
* I added some chicken bones in there since I’m very connected to the earth, and I feel as though the bones strengthen the spells connection and gives it an extra oomph, but that’s optional.
🌱You can add a chant or any other ingredients that fee right to you. I just told each ingredient its purpose in the jar and charged it with white candles and intent!
🌱Let me know if this jar is of help to you! I think it’s a perfect and simple spell jar for your altar or your room. 😊
Use this for magick and making moon water. To make moon water you simply put some water under the moon, it’s okay if it’s cloudy, and you only need to put it out for an hour or more. Store it in a dark space.
Sun water: for ego, dignity, power, pride, self confidence and leader ship
Just leave water under the sun and store in a light/open area.
🌊 maybe you don’t live near the sea or ocean, or maybe you haven’t been able to get to the shore. by combining from a few to all of the following ingredients you can create a seawater equivalent to use in spells.
🌊 gather and combine in a jar:
clean tap water (preferably full moon charged)
sea salt, or regular salt
sea glass chips (or bottle)
pinch of sand
🌊 combine as many ingredients as is possible for you, to create a magical water as similar to real seawater as you can manage.
🌊 you can strain the ingredients out for better storage after they have charged the water with their properties sufficiently.
🌊 store normally, unless it has seaweed in it, in which it should not be stored for more than a few days, lest it mold.
Voodoo Mama's Spellbook: A Lunar Menstrual Love Spell
*My spells, though voodoo/hoodoo influenced, are open to everyone*
This is a powerful love spell for those of us who have menstrual cycles. The menstrual cycle is proof that the universe is connected to you. The very moon is guiding your body like the tides of an ocean. So this is a spell written by my grandmother and she swears by it. She says that she met my papa two weeks after performing this spell. The concept is to allow the moon to lead your body to a new love. I have actually never done this spell but upon posting this I will be trying. (Single lesbian sobsob)
This love spell can be used two ways and I will get into more detail into the instructions. I prefer to ask for love to be guided to me instead of focusing on a particular person but you can do otherwise with a slight variation I will include. Let me note that everyone has their opinion on love spells. I do not care to hear yours.
SPELL MUST BE DONE ON A FRIDAY WHEN THERE IS A FULL MOON
-6 drops of menstrual blood
-2 basil leaves
-2 pinches ginger powder
-9 drops of juice from an orange
-full moon charged water
-cheesecloth or something to strain water
-6 red rose petals
-1 jar or container
-(Optional) Hair of the person if there is someone in particular.
First of all you want to mix your moon water, ginger powder and drops of orange juice.
Set it out in the moonlight while you peel and slice your peaches. Be very slow and delicate while you do this. It symbolized you opening yourself up to the new experiences.
Get your pot back and add the sliced peaches into the pot.
Add the basil and rose petals and place the pot on the stove.
While it boils, focus on it and push your desires onto it. This potion of love will be charged with your dreams and everything that you need from a lover. Think about certain aspects that you wish for that person to have. Don’t forget to stir every now and again.
Once it is boiling, let it go for 30 seconds or so.
Strain the water with your cheesecloth or whatever you plan to use into a jar. You can throw the items strained into the trash or use them for any gardening you need.
Make sure that your jar is only about ¾ of the way filled up.
Meditate while watching the jar. You can talk to any deity and do any prayers at this time. Ask it to be blessed. This water is a potion of love, charged by the moon.
Once you are ready, slowly add your blood. As it hits the water, the love potion is bound to you by blood. Watch it fall through the mixture. Think about how one of your most intimate aspects is now here. If you are using this on a person, add their hair now and think the same about them. They are tied to you.
Finally, add the red wine and fill the jar all the way up. This seals the deal. Think about the romance you want. Maybe talk to the mixture and tell it out loud. It loves suggestions. Please be specific and careful with your words.
Close the jar and give it 9 shakes filled with emotion and want.
If this is meant for a certain person, go to their home and pour the mixture below their window. If it is for just anyone, pour it under your own window.
Within the next month or two, if the spell has worked, you will meet someone who is brought to you by the pull of the moon.
Day 4 did not require much energy (after all, I had been contemplating and seeing new things about myself in relation to love and fears/insecurities for a few days at this point; looking back on past relationships and really meditating on what I want to attract in my life, and I only have so much energy to use!). For this day, I collected and charged moon water for a bath spell I had planned for Day 5. At this point the moon is 3 days after the quarter moon and 3 days before the new moon. As phases moving towards the full moon work best for attraction spells, I thought this would be the perfect time to make this!
How I Make Moon Water:
Generally, moon water can be used in really any spell that requires water. The lunar phase in which you charge the water will help transfer the energy from that phase into your spell. (So, if you were to do a banishing spell for example, it would be best to use moon water charged during a new moon, as the new moon’s energy often represents repelling.) The water holds energy from the moon.
- Fill a container with clean water, preferably a container that is glass/see through and that has a lid so no bugs get in the water. - Since I knew I was going to use this for a love bath spell, I added pink salt to the water for love. (You probably don’t want to add salt if you’ll be using the water for something consumable, like tea…) - Place the container full of water outside under the moon. It’s ok if it’s cloudy, this will still work. And it’s ok if you can’t leave it outside, it will still work on a windowsill or balcony. - Leave it out all night, bring it back in when you wake up, done!
Put glitter in your full moon water before charging it to amplify the moons energy. You can change up the color of the glitter to correspond with the specific purpose of the full moon water as well. If the water is meant to be consumable, you can use edible glitter to mix in with potions and teas for a magical effect. Or if you aren’t intending on drinking your water, you can set the intent that every time you shake the jar and watch the glitter swirl around, you are amplifying your psychic abilities.
