Prosperity & Spells
Witches cast spells to achieve all sorts of goals-some of the most common are love, strength, protection, healing, and purification. But probably the most widely used spells are those for prosperity.
Prosperity means different things to different people. For some it means being able to pay the monthly bills without worry. For others it means the fulfillment of a specific goal (like an author selling a lot of her books, for instance, not that I would need to do magick for such a thing…). To some Witches it is about acquiring riches, for others it is more about lessening poverty.
In general, though, prosperity spells are aimed at removing the stress that not having enough money can cause, leaving us free to focus on other more important aspects of our lives. (It is hard to be spiritual when they are turning off the electricity, after all.)
As a Witch, I’m sure that it will come as the gods help those who help themselves. Doing magickal work is only the first step. If you need a new job, by all means cast a prosperity spell to help you find the right one-then get up off your butt and go looking. The spell may help direct your feet to the right path, but that only works if you are walking in the first place.
