Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Last Chance Day

Fantasy Images

November 28th

Last Chance Day

This was considered to be the last chance to marry before the beginning of Advent, during which marriage was frowned upon. It was believed that if a man wanted to marry a woman who was in debt he would not be responsible for the woman’s financial obligations if he took her, dressed only in her undergarments from the hands of a priest.

A Love Spell for Friday – Drawing Love and Romance Spell

Fantasy Images

A Love Spell for Friday

Drawing Love and Romance Spell

 

This candle spell is designed to draw a little romance and love into your life. Fridays are linked to the planet Venus and to all the love deities, and this is the most opportune day of the week to work your witchery for love and romance. Like always, remember not to target anyone specific here. We want to pull a little romantic fun and excitement into your life, not take away another’s free will.

Gather the following supplies:
1 pink floral-scented votive
1 pale green, apple-scented votive
2 votive cups
A rose and a bud vase or fresh, loose rose petals (match the color of the flower to your magickal intentions)
Lighter or matches
A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell

Arrange the candles and the flower or flower petals in a way that pleases you. Try scattering the petals in a circle around the outside of the votive cups or setting the flower in a bud base off to the side. Please note that you can call on either the Norse Goddesses Freya and Frigga or you may petition the Roman Venus or the Greek Aphrodite with this spell—whoever you feel more of a connection to.

Light the candles and repeat the following spell three times:

Roses and candles, symbols of desire and love
Venus/Freya, hear my call, send your help from above
Send to me a lover who is fun, faithful and true
Guide my magick and assist me in all that I do.

Close the spell by saying:

For the good of all, with harm to none
By candle and rose, this spell is done!

Let the candles burn until they go out on their own. Keep the rose in the vase until it begins to fade, then crumble apart the petals and allow them to air-dry. If you used loose petals, allow those to dry out as well. After the petals have dried, you may add them to a charm bag and keep it with you to encourage loving vibrations or return them to nature as an offering to the Goddess.

Note: If you decide to reword this spell to suit your own needs, then please be very specific. If you go overboard on the “love me” theme and work for an existing spouse or lover to become more passionate or devoted to you, you could suddenly find yourself with an obsessive partner who never leaves your side. They may become jealous or never allow you any privacy. And no, I am not trying to spook you. Just think of this as a friendly reminder and consider yourself warned—and be very careful what you spell-cast for, especially when it come to love..

FRIDAY’S WITCHERY

Fantasy Images

FRIDAY’S WITCHERY

Love magick is a perennial popular topic. However, there is more to this topic than meets the eye. There are many enchanting layers here for us to explore on this day of the week. What about creating a loving home, or producing a loving and nurturing family? What about keeping your intimate relationships vital and on track? How about promoting happy, healthy, and enduring friendships? See, there is more to be considered than just the “You shall be mine…” type of fictional love spell. Don’t forget that many of the deities associated with Fridays are also parents. So, yes, while this is the day to work on romance, sex, and love spells, there is additional magick to be considered here, which makes Fridays a more well-rounded and bigger opportunity for witchery than many folks ever truly realize. The truest, strongest magick always comes from the heart.

Friday Is Ruled By Venus

Fantasy Images

Friday Is Ruled By Venus

Friday belongs to Venus, both the planet and its namesake Roman goddess of love. This day is sacred to many other gods and goddesses of love such as Eros, Venus, Aphrodite, and the Norse goddess that gave the day its name, Freya. This day of the week is for magical topics such as love, birth, fertility, and romance. Colors for today include pink and aqua. Some suggestions for Friday enchantments would include:

◦Carrying a rose quartz with you today to send out some gentle and loving vibes to those crabby co-workers

◦Working a loving Tarot spell to charm a friend’s pregnancy with good health and safety

◦Working a little flower magic to enchant a single pink rose for friendship and inner beauty, and setting it on your desk. Or try empowering a red rose for passion and placing it in your bedroom.

◦ Burning rose-scented candles to encourage the same effect. Call on Eros to “bring a passion for life” to your days.

◦Sharing a romantic snack with your partner. Feed each other ripe, red strawberries. Those strawberries are love-inducing food, and are sacred to many love goddesses, including today’s patroness, Freya.

NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.
