2 Forgotten Rituals to Harness the Power of the Stars

Witches often talk about the benefits of moon magic. They rarely talk about the energies we can harness from the stars. Although they are not as prominent as the moon, their energy can still be woven into countless spells.

The Stars are one of the most powerful elements of the Universe that governs us, our home and the Origin that gives us power. Their mystical light gives us peace and pulls us into deep states of tranquility, which makes it easier for us to invoke the energies that help us perform our craft. Each star is a fragment of the gods who are listening to our rituals.

The power of star magic was discovered by witches hundreds of years ago. The first known star spells can be traced to around the time of the collapse of the Roman Empire. These witches knew the magic of the stars, their movement in the sky and how to create the conditions to take advantage of their influences. They discovered that they could use them to invoke powerful love magic, especially in men.

Ancient cultures built many of their rituals on stellar movements. They were great astrologers and could predict future events with stunning accuracy.

The map of the sky and the trajectories of the stars were considered propitiatory for certain forms of witchcraft. Today, we know much more about stars, their location, constellations and their clustering patterns. Science gives us precise data, but ancient magic also knew what energy each constellation had and how to take advantage of it.

Creating a Wiccan Circle to Make a Wish Upon a Star

The idea of wishing upon a star is something that is traced in many legends and even pop culture references. However, few people are able to do it effectively. They believe that they all they must do is close their eyes and make a wish. You must actually practice a ritual with circle magic to make your wish come true.

Here are the steps that you will take.

Look for a place in a field on an arid plane. There should be no grass or vegetation. Use a stick to draw three circles in the sand.

The first will be the largest and it will engulf the other two. It will be a circle of fire that will burn steadily throughout the ritual. Say the following out loud: “It will be the power of my constancy and my will!”

The second will be a circle of red candles. You must say this as you draw it: “This will be the power of my body, vital, strong, vigorous.”

The third circle will be filled with blue candles: “Quiet for my life, I can communicate and feel proud of myself.”

Take a moment to thank the five elements on this magical night. Lie comfortably in the middle of the circles. Lay down in a couple blue and red cushions that you have brought with you. With your eyes open, start to gaze at the stars. Chase one with your vision. Then another. When you find one that catches your attention more than any other in the open sky, make a wish to it. Recite your wish softly, but remember that you are watching a “collection of stars.” There are more stars waiting to help you. You should thank all of the stars collectively for their help, but remember that you will only get helped by the first you made the request of. The others will merely serve as aides to their sister star.

Have faith that your wish will come true. You will become the best of friends with this star. Take a black and red box that you had prepared with an interior mirror and reflect the light of your star into the box. Ask permission to stay with you for a few days. You will feel its presence, energy, love, complicity, wisdom and help. You will know that it will be with you. As this happens, you feel it with all your heart and see the reflection. Then you must close the box.

The star will be with you, keeping you company for up to seven days. Then you will return to the place where you made friends and set it free again. It will enjoy sharing its power. During those days, you will feel the positive change that its energy brings into your life.

Love Spell Underneath the Star

There is a reason that many people seek romantic evenings on stary nights. Stars have almost aphrodisiac magical properties. This spell, which is done while observing a star, will make a man fall in love with you. It works very well.

Ingredients: a photo of him, his hair, mineral or spring water, a pink candle, a mirror.

First, choose a star in the sky to perform the spell. You have to locate it and remember it to know where it is in the sky. This spell must be performed outdoors.

Take all of the ingredients and place them on the ground. The photo and the hair under the mirror will be face up. Put the candle over the mirror.

You must be seated to see the star reflected in the mirror. The candle must be at the top of the mirror, so you can see it reflected at the bottom. Light the candle and say the following sentence with the intention of bringing the man you love closer:

“For the night sky, for the darkness that does not touch me, I ask you star of my heart to bring this man (say his name) to me. Let him fall in love with me, as the star falls in love with the night, that he cannot flee from me, that he only has eyes for me, so be it”.

Make sure to say this phrase several times, while staring at the star through the mirror. Leave the candle lit until it is finished. When it is about to burn out, drink the water and extinguish it by throwing it on the mirror. After that, leave the mirror outdoors all night. Get up before sunrise. You don’t have to give sunlight to the mirror. Put the mirror on your bed every night if possible. Keep his photo and hair in your underwear. Throw the remains of the candle on the ground.

It is a spell that does not fail. You can repeat as many times as you want but you have to choose the same star for it to improve the effectiveness.

Getting Started With Pendulums for Divination Magic

Pendulum are fascinating instruments with complex magical properties. A pendulum mysteriously connects the unconscious and the conscious. It bridges the divide between the physical and spiritual planes, which makes it the perfect tool for divination magic.

As long as the pendulum string is taut and the weight is free of any negative energies that would interfere with its connection to the astral world, you will be able to use it to see beyond the realms of your everyday conscious mind. However, it takes a knowledge of the magical properties of pendulums and practice to use it as a divination tool.

How Can You Use a Pendulum as a Divination Tool?

The pendulum can see many things, but sometimes the revelations are vague. An inexperienced diviner could spend hours trying to seek answers with pendulum magic, with little success. Then they unexpectedly receive a flash of clarity, which gives them an answer. Sometimes, the insight is an eclipsed version of the answer they were seeking, which can be disappointing. Other times, the question is answered in full.

Understanding the Fundamentals of Pendulum Magic

You will receive clearer answers over time. The specificity of your answers depends on:

  • How much practice you have had with divination magic
  • Your level of confidence in your ability to divine the answers you are looking for
  • Whether your aura is free of astral larvae or other parasites that can impede your connection to the astral plane
  • How well you have cared for your pendulum
  • Whether there are any impurities in your pendulum that could limit its connection to the astral world

Before you get started with pendulum magic, it is very important to address any roadblocks between your physical body and the astral world. Begin by removing any impurities from your life that attract astral parasites.

You must also make sure that the pendulum is formed from the right materials. I have seen novice witches try to use pendulums formed from cast iron, steel, wood or other materials that will not form a connection to the astral world. If you intend to use pendulum magic, you need to make sure it is formed from purer materials.

Crystals are theoretically the best materials for making pendulums. However, there are two major limitations with them. First of all, they are rare and fairly expensive. Secondly, they tend to collect a lot of energy. This means they need to frequently and rigorously cleaned to work as a divination tool.

Silver is the best materials to use for pendulum magic. It is both a metal of the earth and of the moon. Its lunar properties make it the perfect material for connecting to the astral world. Sterling silver is a great substitute, as long as it is no less than nine parts of silver for every part of the alloy metal.

Of course, silver is pricey. If you can’t afford it, then copper is the next best option. It is also a metal of the earth, with excellent conductive properties. Its conductivity is great for harvesting the energy needed to build a connection to the astral plane.

Invoking the Pendulum

Once you have made sure your pendulum is properly functioning and your own connection to the astral world is pure, you can start using it to build those connections. It is time to harness your pendulum and use it to begin invoking the all-seeing energies of the astral world.

You can use the pendulum to answer any question that you like. However, it is easier to ask for questions with binary answers, such as those that have “yes” or “no” as the only possible answers. You can ask for answers to more open-ended questions in the future, but you will need a lot more practice. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will assume that you are asking a binary question. The procedures for seeking answers to open-ended questions is beyond the scope of this post.

When you ask a question, you must follow up with possible answers. For example:

“Will my interviewer be impressed if I wear a black tie to my job interview tomorrow, yes or no?”

The pendulum will rotate clockwise, counterclockwise or it may oscillate. If it moves clockwise, that indicates that the first answer you posed is the answer you were looking for. A counterclockwise rotation indicates the second answer is correct.

It is possible that after the first movement, the pendulum will make a different and even contradictory motion. This may mean that the information provided corresponds to two different stages or situations. If so, you should modify the questions and get answers to both.

The most important and difficult part of pendulum divination magic is posing the question in a way that the answer will be practical and easy to decipher.


The first pendulums consisted of a simple key suspended from a thread. While it moved circularly, the diviner asked questions. Over time, a ring or a small ball of lead was placed instead of a key.

Later, the pendulum took on more refined forms, such as a small crystal sphere suspended from a gold chain, or a pendulum in the form of a pear made of ebony or ivory.

There are many fortune tellers and healers who prefer a solid quartz pendulum, although they require constant energetic cleansing, as crystals can be easily charged with all kinds of energies that may interfere with later work.

When creating any pendulum, you must tie a knot at each end of the object to prevent it from slipping between the fingers.


The pendulum is used in many modern cultures to choose fertile soil, as well as to search for minerals, fossils, gold and lost objects.

It can be used to make decisions and learn complicated answers to questions we face in everyday life.


Tips to Use Pendulum Successfully

– Find a private, quiet room that doesn’t contain electronics.

– Sit in a chair, preferably in front of a table, with your back straight and the palms of your feet resting on the floor.

– Avoid crossing your legs and arms or intertwining your hands during the session.

– Place the pendulum in front of the Sixth Chakra.

– Determine the meaning of the different oscillations. Yes, No, You don’t know. For example, it could be the following:

Yes: the pendulum moves forward or circles clockwise.

No: It turns in a circle counterclockwise.

Doesn’t know: The pendulum remains static or shows a slight vibration. In this case, pause or change the way you ask. Concentrate on the question and make sure that it is clear, short and precise. Take the pendulum between your extended thumb and index finger. Rest your forearm on the table and let the pendulum swing over the body area, hand or object.


From time to time it is good to put it in sea salt and you must try to avoid being touched by anyone other than yourself.
