The Witches Magick for July 16th – The Elemental Purification

Unicorn Comments & Graphics

The Elemental Purification

This rite utilizes the powersof the four elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) to cleanse the home. At a time when you are alone in the home, or in the presence of family members or housernates, assemble on a table the following items:

A bowl or flat dish of salt

An incense burner (censer)

Frankincense (or any other sweet-fumed incense sticks, cones or powder)

A white candle

A bowl of clean, pure water

Light the incense and the candle. Stand before the table and open yourself to your home. Feel its energies. Really tune in to any impressions you receive.

After a moment, hold your hands over the assembled tools and say something like the following (feel free to improvise):

1 charge you, tools of the elements,

To sweep my house clean of all ill and bane.

This is my will, so mote it be!

Take the dish of salt and, moving clockwise around the house, throw a pinch of salt into each corner of every room, saying the following or similar words:

By the powers of Earth, I cleanse this house!

In your imagination, see the salt burning away negativity as you sprinkle and toss it. Your purification will be as strong as your visualization.

Also throw pinches into cupboards and closets, through open windows and doors, into attics and basements, and in the garage.

Next, set the salt down and pick up the censer. While the incense smokes, carry it on the same route you used with the salt. Holding it before open windows and doors and in the corners of each room, visualize the smoke clearing away all negativity and evil. Say the following at regular intervals:

By the powers of Air, I cleanse this house!

Once you have walked through the whole house, return the censer and take the lit candle on the same route. Again, visualize, moving clockwise and holding the flame before windows and doors, seeing it shining forth with magical power, burning away negativity. Every so often, say:

By the powers of Fire, I cleanse this house!

Finally, replace the candle on the table and take up the bowl of water. Sprinkle water throughout the house, in every corner and at exits and entrances. Toss some drops at and through windows. See and know that the water is washing away ills with a tidal wave of magical power. Say the following:

By the powers of Water, I cleanse this house!

Set the bowl on the table and stand for a few minutes in the house. It should feel calmer, more peaceful, fresh and clean. If not, repeat the ritual.

Close the doors and windows, and, if time permits, leave the salt, incense, candle and water together on the table until the candle burns itself out and the incense is reduced to ash.

The Witches Magick for June 21st – Fire Purification Spell

Litha Comments & Graphics

Fire Purification Spell


Materials Needed:

1 Red or White Candle

1 Black Ink Pen

1 Small Square of White

Unlined Paper

1 Pair of tweezers or tongs


Timing: Noon on a day when the moon is in the waxing phase. Preferably as close to the Summer Solstice as possible.

Procedure: Think of one bad habit you have that you would truly like to rid yourself of. Write it down in the center of the of paper. Now fold the paper top to bottom, then left to right, so that it is folded into fourths with the writing inside. As you fold the paper, visualize that habit being trapped inside the paper. Now light the candle and meditate on its flame for a moment. When you are prepared to continue, hold the paper in a diamond shape, with the writing down at the bottom. Now take the tweezers and hold the bottom tip of the diamond into the flame. Visualize the habit burning away with the flames. As the paper burns, chant the following or similar:


“Great spirits of fire, grow and consume this habit of evil so goodness may bloom.”


This spell should be cast outside, so that the ashes of the paper can fall to the earth. As they do so, visualize the earth as taking your habit and absorbing it. Be sure to leave a gift for the earth in exchange for taking your habit.

Note: This spell also works extremely well with balefires or the fire at your Litha ritual. Simply toss the paper into the flames and chant. Do not attempt to hold it over the flames as you would with a candle.

Spell for Banishing and Cleansing Ritual


Point your Athame at the sky, and then at the earth. Then pointing Athame horizontally either spin 360 or walk around the perimeter with the Athame held out in a threatening manner.

Spirits of evil, Unfriendly beings
Unwanted guests, Be gone!
Leave us leave this place, leave this Circle,
that the Goddess and the God may enter.
Go, or be cast into the outer darkness!
Go, or be drowned in the watery abyss!
Go, or be burned in the flames!
Go, of be torn by the whirlwind!
By the power of the Mother and the Horned One
We banish you! We banish you! We banish you!

Sprinkle the perimeter with salt and water.
