The Witches Magick for Friday, July 29th – The Frog King Spell

Summer Garden Fairy
The Frog King Spell

Intent: To find a companion or friend with whom to share your life (not necessarily romantic).

Ideal Timing: Waxing Moon

Materials:
Cup of water
An apple of any color
Gold paint
A bowl of any shape
Tealight candle
Paint brush

Fill a cup with water and set to the side of the bowl. In small increments, core the top of the apple- regularly checking to make sure that the tealight fits without being too loose or too low. When the top of the tealight sits flush with the top of the apple, stop.

On four sides of the apple paint the silhouette of a frog in gold. If you have no great artistic skill, writing the word “FROG” on each side of the apple in golden paint shall suffice. Allow the paint to dry on the apple while you paint a circle in the center of the bottom inside of the bowl. Allow it to dry as well.

Once all the paint is dry, place the tealight inside the hole you cored in the top of the apple. Place the apple in the bowl so that it stands erect with the tealight at the top. Light the tealight and fill the bowl with the water from the cup you gathered earlier.

Place the bowl somewhere safe away from any curtains or other flammable materials, then turn off all the lights. Sit before the bowl and meditate on the candle flame while thinking of the qualities you want in a platonic companion.

When finished, blow out the candle. Repeat every night until the time that the apple begins to spoil, refreshing the candle when necessary, until you are satisfied.

The summoning

Chant to Shield Oneself from an Enemy

Space there is and space there be
Between (name of enemy) and me
By Waning Moon this space shall grow
Until she (he) no longer causes woe
For anyone, for mine, for me
As I will, so mote it be

I am sorry for taking an easy way out but because of pain from a medical problem, I have been unable to write one for us this time. There will be only a circle cast this time and no Watchtowers. Some traditions of The Craft do not call the Watchtowers.

Remember ALL Pagans are welcome to attend.

How To Hold a Lammas Harvest Ritual”

In some Pagan traditions, Lammas is the time of year when the Goddess takes on the aspects of the Harvest Mother. The earth is fruitful and abundant, crops are bountiful, and livestock are fattening up for winter. However, the Harvest Mother knows that the cold months are coming, and so she encourages us to begin gathering up what we can…

Turquoise Protection Amulet

TURQUOISE PROTECTION AMULET

 

The ancients regarded turquoise as a powerful magickal aid to ward off misfortune, illness, and the evil eye. You can use turquoise to make your own amulet for protection.

To begin, during the waxing Moon take a piece of blue turquoise or an item of blue turquoise jewelry and hold it in your hand for a moment. In your mind’s eye, picture a blue light surrounding you. Hold the stone to your heart, and breathe on it to charge it with your power, saying:

“Stone of blue, surround me with protective energy. 
I am protected by your soothing blue light.”

Carry your turquoise with you or wear it as often as you can.

A Spell to Cast When You Feel Threatened

A Spell to Cast When You Feel Threatened

We all go through times when we feel that we are under threat, perhaps at work when schedules are tight and tempers are about to snap. Or maybe in the home when tensions are making themselves felt, creating a chill in the air. This spell, which calls for excellent visualization skills, protects you by forming a crystal shell around you, protecting you from the bad vibrations of ill temper.

You will need:
A clear crystal of quartz or any favourite one that is full of clear light

Place the crystal on a table where it will catch the sunshine. Sit at the table and breathe in deeply through the nose. Hold the breath for a moment or two before exhaling through the mouth. Repeat this several times, absorbing the light cast by the crystal as you inhale and exhaling any negative feelings, doubts and darkness.

After a minute or two, stand and begin visualizing a ring of crystal rising around you, from your feet upwards, getting higher and higher with each breath you take.

When the crystal ring is above head height, see it close over you, forming any shape in which you feel comfortable to be enclosed – a pyramid perhaps, or maybe a dome.

Still breathing deeply, feel the crystal form a floor beneath your feet. Stretch your arms and feel your fingers touch the sides. Look upwards and see the dome or pyramid point. If you can, see yourself from outside the protective crystal in which you have surrounded yourself.

Now say:

Within this crystal,
I am safe from negative thought,
And will be so,
whenever I return to it.
And let it be done,
that it harm no one.

When you feel it is right to do so,return to normal breathing and see the crystal open to allow you to step outside it, safe in the knowledge that you can return to it whenever you need to.
Those who have used this spell find that keeping a crystal in the house, office, or wherever else they think they may need protection from negativity strengthens the spell’s potency.

A Spell for Those Who Are Lonely

A Spell for Those Who Are Lonely

Have you moved to a new location and have yet to meet the sort of people you are inclined to make friends with? Or maybe shyness is stopping you going out and making friends? This spell should help.

You will need:
A piece of scrap paper
A piece of parchment
A pen
An orange candle
An empty hurricane lamp
A bolline or burin
A jar
Salt

Take some time to write down what your personality traits are, your likes and dislikes and a few sentences that summarize your character. Now précis what you have written in as few words as possible, but retaining their essence, and write these on the parchment. The reason for keeping the words to a minimum is that now you inscribe them onto the candle.

Fill the jar one third of the way up with salt and bury the rolled up piece of parchment in it before sealing the jar and putting it in as safe a place as possible near your bed.

Before you go to bed, put the inscribed candle into the hurricane lamp and light it. Make sure that it is in a safe place, and that if you have a cat or dog, they are kept out of the bedroom as accidents can happen.

Focus on the flame seeing how much better your life will be when new friends have come into it. Say something along the lines of:

Help me, please, to make new friends,
So my loneliness will be at an end.
And let it be done, that it harm no one

As you drift off to sleep, see what you have inscribed on the candle drift out of the room, through your house and out into the world. Waken confident that your loneliness will soon be over. And now for the difficult part. Making new friends is a two-way process. You can’t just sit there and wait for the phone to ring. Make the effort. Go out, even if it’s just to sit in a coffee shop with a good book, and let the magic work for you.

A Spell to Cast When a Pet Dies

A Spell to Cast When a Pet Dies

Non-pet owners often find it hard to understand the huge sense of loss that is experienced on the death of a much-loved pet, especially a dog. They simply don’t understand that the unconditional love a pet often displays towards its owner creates a bond that, when it is broken, can never be replaced. If you have been affected by such a loss, don’t try to contain your grief: bottled-up grief grows and grows until it can become quite unbearable. This spell should help ease your sense of loss.

You will need:

Three small brown taper candles
Rosemary essential oil
Something that reminds you of your pet – a lead perhaps, or a collar

Anoint the candles with the oil before lighting them and focusing on the three flickering flames, conjuring up in your mind’s eye some of the happy memories that you have of your dead pet. Now, holding the memento in both hands, say aloud some words of thanks for the companionship and friendship it brought into your life before saying that now is the time to say a final farewell. See the candle flames grow as you say ‘Goodbye!’ Don’t snuff out the candles (that’s why they should be small).Rather, focus on the flames getting smaller and smaller, seeing your grief diminish with them.

And when they die, know that your grief has died with them.

Finish the ritual by saying:

Be at peace,
And blessed be.
And let it be done,
that it harm no one.

And remember that it is your grief that has gone, not your happy memories of your much-loved pet.

Hot Foot Spell

Hot Foot Spell

The purpose of the spell, why you do it, is to get someone off your back. The intent is not to harm someone but to make them go away and leave you alone. This is not, however, intended for petty grievances. This is a serious spell and if it backfires it can make you go away.

You Will Need:

Hot Foot Powder (available in occult supply stores)
bowl to hold powder
small jar
4 black altar candles (altar candles are short – about 3 inches long)
2 white altar candles to represent the Goddess and God
drum or other rhythm instrument (or clap your hands)

Cleanse and purify your altar area. Set up your altar for charging magickal tools. Arrange the four black candles for lighting purposes and if you want, drape the altar in black, wear black, and otherwise dress up the area.

Pour a small quantity, about a spoonful, of the Hot Foot Powder into the bowl and place it on your altar. Get comfortable in front of the altar, you’re going to be there for a little while.

Put the white candles on either side of the bowl and light them, while focusing on your grievance. Get a good rhythm going – beat that drum, shake that rattle, clap those hands, beat that floor, whatever – and make it an urgent sort of beat, the sort that makes you want to run. As you do this, chant:

You shall rise, you shall rise
You shall walk and you shall fly
Out of my life and away Onward Outward Away Be gone!
And trouble me no more I give you no power
You have no power
No power Over Me!

Keep repeating this chant and get really worked up. Feel that power and anger rising up. Keep repeating the chant until the candles have burned almost completely down, then grab that bowl full of Hot Foot Powder and send all the furious energy into it. Visualize that powder just bubbling and boiling over with your emotion. When the fury is in the powder pour the powder into the small jar and close up tightly. Be sure to ground yourself before leaving the Circle.

Now, take that charged powder and lay it in the path of your enemy. Make sure you aren’t seen doing this. Pour it into your hand, then with a strong puff of breath blow it over an area your foe walks over regularly. This spell is specific to one person, so don’t worry about it affecting other people who cross over it. Hotfoot Powder is very fine, and if you only use a spoonful it shouldn’t be visible on a floor. If it is, it will look just like dust.
