A Tree Love Spell
On a small leaf make an image of yourself, on another make an image of the type of person you wish to meet. With a green thread sew the two images face to face and know the string tightly. Go to a tree that emits loving vibrations and find a natural hole or crevice in the tree. Do NOT make one! If none is available, perhaps a place where a branch is joined to the trunk can be used, as long as it is secure. Lodge the leaves firmly into the crevice and say as you do:
Tree of earth water air and fire,
grant me the love I desire.
Bury seven pennies at its base and it is done.
The trees with which you cultivate magical relationship are things to be treasured; visit them often, even when you have no magic to perform. When you arrive at the point when you see trees and accept them as friends you have achieved a powerful bond between yourself and the earth, and even beyond.
