White Candle Spell for Blessing



Get a white candle — either a plain one (offertory, pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the person you want to bless. Carve the person’s full name on the candle, then dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil. For more power, you may place a name-paper of the person, or a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a snippet of clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the saucer. Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between burnings.


As you light it each day, say this

[Name], may you be blessed

May all good things come to you

May nothing whatsoever harm you

May your heart be light

May your travels be safe

May your health be good

May your mind be sound

May your friendships sustain you

May you be blessed in every way


If you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list.

Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer than seven days. They may make a habit of burning such a candle every day — or once a week, on Sundays –for as long as their friend or relative needs help, even doing so for months at a time.

If the candle is large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you can drop a tiny bit of oil into the “well” or hole in such a large candle just before lighting it each time.

To Bless The Dead (Samhain)



On Halloween night, anoint a black candle with three drops of frankincense or myrrh oil (or a blend of the two) to consecrate it. Light the candle’s wick with a match, and say:




Fill your mind with images of your deceased loved one. Take a black feather in your power hand and use it to trace the symbol of the pentagram in the air over the flame of the candle. Do this thrice, each time reciting the following incantation:

Lady A’s Spell of the Day for Aug. 18th – Familiar Blessing

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments


Lady A’s Spell of the Day for Aug. 18th – Familiar Blessing


Familiar Blessing

Goal: To welcome or bless a familiar

Optional extras:

White candle (or any candle in the shape of your familiar);

statue or picture of Bast, Hecate, or another appropriate animal patron


Magic’s notes: Bast is the goddess of cats, Hecate is the patron of dogs and snakes. Herne is good for almost any wild animal, should you happen to have one for a familiar. If your animal will sit still for this magickal working, it is nice to have them there for the spell, but you can do it without them. If they are not present, substitute a picture.

Furry and mysterious
You have blessed my life
And my magickal practice
With your sweet spirit
And the essence of your soul.”


Be blessed and welcome
Companion and helper
As you boost my power
By lending your strength
And your own deep magick.”
May we live together
And practice  together
For many years to come
And bring joy and strength
As we grow in our bond.”
In perfect love and perfect trust
May we practice our magick
O blessed familiar.”
“So Mote It Be!”

The Witches Magick for Monday, July 21- House Blessing Spell

Crow Comments & Graphics


At dawn, rise and light some incense. Walk slowly through the quiet house and say
the following words while visualizing their meaning and intent.
House of stone, metal, wood, and earth
Silent one, protective one, you of the four winds
House of health, wealth, joy and peace
Guardian, sustainer, you of earth
House of stone, metal, wood and earth
Secure one, peaceful one, you of the charm
Guarded and protected you be
Cleansed and put you be
Peaceful and loving you be
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
Set down the incense and draw as exact a likeness of your house as you can from your
imagination. Draw it from all angles; from above, from the front, from behind. If you live in
an apartment, draw the building as well.
When finished, go outside and check your drawing. Is as accurate as you can make it?
If not, draw a new one or make changes until the drawing satisfies you. No great skill is required,
you need only make a recognizable likeness of your home.
When finished, take a white candle and a sharp knife. Cut seven evenly spaced notches in
the candle so that you create a knobbed candle. Now set the drawing down on a table where
it can remain for seven days. Set the candle on top of it and light it while visualizing your
home as blessed, safe and loving.
Let the candle burn down one notch the first day as you go about your early morning business,
then pinch or snuff out the flame and leave it until the next day.
The next morning, repeat the ritual – from lighting the incense and saying the blessing chant
to burning one candle notch. On the seventh day, after the candle has burned down all the way,
fold the drawing into a tight package and secure it with red or white cord.
Place it in a wooden box with salt and dried roses and tie the box shut with another white cord.
Finally, place the box in the home where it won’t be seen or found.
