Pay the Piper Spell Jar
Here’s a spell for those times when you’re waiting on payment from a variety of different sources for work you’ve already done. It’s money drawing with modified intentions, since you know who owes you and for what. (In my case, a freelance article, music royalties, and a supplies trade.) I lifted this format from @witching-and-wondering’s beautiful anti-nightmare spell bottle.
- tealight candle (green if possible)
- bay leaf
- green ribbon
- star anise
- cinnamon stick
- a whole clove for each person that owes you
- sigil on paper
- bergamot oil
Place the ingredients in your jar in an order that pleases you. The calcite can rest against the outside. If you like, draw or pierce a money-drawing sigil on the bay leaf before adding it. Tie green ribbon around your jar and anoint your tealight with bergamot oil, if applicable. You can also sprinkle mint on top of the tealight. Put your tealight on your jar (or next to it if it’s a tiny jar) and, as you light it, recite:
My obligations now fulfilled
With knowledge deep and labor skilled
In return and with all speed
Complete the trade that was agreed
If you have a sigil on paper for this purpose, light it with the candle’s flame and burn it to ash in a firesafe container.
Let the tealight burn down, while focusing on your situation–but try not to dwell on resentment toward the people who haven’t upheld their bargain yet. Instead, consider the positive emotions you’ll experience when you have what you’re owed, like the sense of relief when your rent is paid, or the comfort of a new item of clothing you plan to buy. If you feel negative emotions taking over, or you’re short on time, snuff the candle.
Seal the jar and keep it in a safe place. Then, if you haven’t recently, politely but firmly check in with the people who owe you.
Charge the jar weekly by burning another candle on top of it (but hopefully that won’t be necessary). When all your payment comes in, empty the jar and cleanse it for reuse. Remember not to dispose of salt outdoors!
