The Witches Spell for Aug. 8th – Prosperity Spell


Dragon Comments & Graphics

A Spell for Prosperity

A Spell for Prosperity This spell works best when performed during a waxing or full moon, but if you’re in a pinch, it can be cast any time. For this spell, carry a piece of aquamarine in your pocket, and bring basil incense and your wand or athame to the shore. This is a good time to use your shell incense burner and your driftwood wand. While facing the sea, cast your circle or draw a pentacle in front of you with your wand. Light the incense and call upon the spirits of the sea to bring you prosperity. If you have a specific sea deity that you honor, address them with your desires. Otherwise, speak your affirmations to the water:

As there are grains of sand in the sea
So shall be my health and prosperity
 

If you need a specific sum of money, use your wand or athame to write it in the sand close to the water so the waves will carry your wish out to sea. Take time to meditate; the waters may provide an answer to your money problems immediately. When the incense has burned out, extinguish the charcoal or flames with sand, then be sure to clean up after yourself before you leave.

Thank the sea spirits and deities. Sleep with the piece of aquamarine tucked inside your pillow each night. The aquamarine serves as an avenue of communication between you and the sea. While you dream , the spirits of the sea may come to you with the answers to your money problems. When your situation has been improved or resolved, return to the same spot where the spell was cast, and offer the aquamarine to the sea, thanking it once again for its help.
