LGBTQ+ Love Protection Jar

A spell to protect your relationship from bigotry, written by @sapphic-witches

What you’ll need:

  •  A Jar
  •  A sigil to represent your relationship (which can also be found here)
  • Lavender
  • Dill
  • Cinnamon
  • Jasmine
  • Garnet
  • Onyx
  • Black candles

Take your jar and place the symbol inside. Add in the lavender, dill, cinnamon, and jasmine. Just a pinch or so will suffice. Add in the gemstones (I used two garnet chips and an onyx bear fetish because my boyfriend is a bear, but any forms will work). If you have limited gemstones, you can charge the jar with the stones’ energies without having to place them inside the jar. Close the jar and seal it with the wax from the black candles, and cover as much of the clear glass as possible. Say the following mantra:

“My relationship/loved one is shielded from the sharp, unfeeling coldness of bigotry and hate. Safe from those who say ‘I love you’ with lies on their tongue and hate in their eyes. For that is my will, so be it.”


Feel free to personalize it by adding your own crystals/herbs that have significant meaning to you, or invoking deities. For example, I called upon Aphrodite to protect out love.

“And I never felt this way with anyone else. Like I’m falling every time I’m around you, like I can’t catch my breath, and I feel alive—not just standing around and letting my life walk past me. There’s been nothing like that with anyone else.”

Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

This one is for all of those who want to separate Africans from using the term/color “Black” as an identifier, empowering characteristic, dominant determinant and primary form of representation:

—“…the color black was symbolically important as the color not only of death but also of fertility, new life, and spiritual resurrection.”

-Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts, Jeremy Naydler.

BLACK DOES NOT ONLY MEAN BAD. BLACK DOES NOT ONLY HAVE ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE NEGATIVE.
PLEASE LET US UNLEARN WHAT OTHERS HAVE MADE US BELIEVE IS DOCTRINE. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.
IT IS LIFE.
