Hello dear friends! It’s Friday! I bet you would have never guessed. Got busy plans for the weekend? Getting those last-minute gifts? Or just starting your Yule and Christmas shopping? I haven’t bought anything yet. For the last couple of years, I have waited to the very last-minute to buy anything. I know what it stems from my daughter (the one that use to tell me I was going to hell all the time) would make comments that I didn’t appreciate about Yule. She got to the point were she would ask me, “Not buying any presents or putting up a Christmas tree this year?” My reply would be, “Yes, when Yule gets closer, I will buy presents and put up the Yule Tree.” I think she associated presents with both Yule and Christmas. So she wanted to know what this “Yule” was all about. I told her and now she doesn’t ask when all the goodies are going to appear.
But speaking of Yule, this weekend the WOTC will have its’ Annual Yule Edition. This year it is going to be an all weekend event. We will features Yule spells, rituals, home-made gifts, ideas for children, Pagan Yule carols and much more. You will have plenty to read and plenty of ideas to make this a great Yule for you and your family.

Friday belongs to Venus, and its energies are warm, sensuous, and fulfilling. Efforts that involve any type of pleasure, comfort, and luxury, as well as the arts, music, or aroma (incense and perfume) works well on this day. As Venus lends its sensuous influences to the energies of this day, use it for any magical work that deals with matters of the heart.
Spellcrafting For Today
THE “PERFECT LOVE FOR ME” SPELL
On a Friday, in the waxing phase of the Moon, (from new to just before and including full Moon)
take two long red candles, a piece of parchment, pen and ink, a pie plate (for safety’s sake) and
find a quiet place free from interruptions. Write on one side of the parchment “The Perfect Love For Me”,
and on the other side, draw a semi-circle.
On one of the candles scratch in “The perfect love for me” and on the other, scratch in your name.
Place the parchment in the pie plate with the semi-circle side up.
Place the one candle (in a holder if need be) that has your name on it on the inside of the semi-circle,
the other one (once again, holder okay) on the outside of the circle. Light the candles, concentrating
on your desire for a perfect love. Let it burn for about an hour, snuff them both using a snuffer or your
fingers (do not blow them out) and on each night thereafter, walk the outer candle closer to the center
of the semi-circle, burning the candles for about an hour each night. Once the outer candle is close
to the inner one, take the same pen you used originally and close the circle around the two in a
clockwise direction. Allow the candles to burn out. When done, burn the parchment and save
the ashes and any left over wax in a small bag (preferably red) under your pillow until your love arrives.
As with all magic, you must really desire this, and put that desire into your spell.
Your love should arrive soon. If you only wish someone to date, you can also put that instead of
perfect love on the candle and parchment.
