THE SPELL OF THE SHELL
To perform this spell, you must find a suitable shell in shallow water. Take the shell and dry it thoroughly. Next, place a symbol of your desire upon the surface of the shell. The symbol must be made with a substance which will easily wash off in water. Place the shell upon the shore, so that the tide will bring waves across the shell.
*Take care to note the phase of the Moon (waxing moon for the gain of something, waning for the dissolving of something).
When the shell is in place, draw a triangle in the sand, enclosing the shell completely. The symbol upon the shell must be facing upwards (toward the Moon). Meaningful words, or phrases, may be placed upon the shell also, or simply written in the sand (inside the triangle).
Finally, give the words of enchantment: (toward the moon)
Goddess of Moon, Earth, and the Sea,
Each wish in Thy name must come to be.
Powers and Forces which Tides do make,
Now summon Thy waves, my spell to take
Leave the area now, and the spell is set.
Once the waves come, then your wish will be taken out to the Old Ones. It will usually take about 7 days for a Lunar spell to begin to manifest, but can take as long as 28 days.
SPELL TO BRING ABOUT A NEED
You need a candle to represent the need, a card to represent yourself, 4 cards to represent your need.
Light the candle.
Lay the card that represent you on the altar and say:
“May this card represent thee”
Pick up the rest of the cards and say:
“As I place these cards at the quarters shall my need be seen”
Lay the cards at the quarters as you go say the card’s name and the need. Then say:
Fulfill my need as quick as can be
by the power of three bring the (need) to me, so mote it be”
Items needed: A small ceramic jar or pot with a tight-fitting lid; 2″ square piece of parchment paper; a gold ink pen; a jar of honey; three silver coins.
Write out your wish on the parchment paper. Place the paper in the bottom of the jar. Add the coins and fill the jar with honey. Cover with the lid. Hold the jar close to your heart and the chant the following nine times to empower the wishing pot:
Goddess of blessings and bountiful earth
To my wishes and dreams give birth
Place the pot on your altar until your wish come true. Once you receive your petition, toss the pot into the nearest water way.
We all wish for lives filled with contentment, health, happiness, and prosperity. There is nothing wrong with wanting the best for ourselves and those we love. The idea behind pocket magic is to create the vibration of success and then take that energy with you everywhere you go. This fetish, therefore, is designed to be a general all-purpose power center that you can energize and draw from as needed.
THE WISHING WELL
Take any large bowl. Drip a few drops of different-colored candle wax in the bottom of the bowl, then adhere a white candle to that spot. The different colors represent diverse needs and goals, while the white binds this variety together in harmony. Each morning, light the candle when you get up and put a coin in the bowl. Make your wish for the day. Blow out the candle before you leave the house.
Whenever you desperately need to have a wish fulfilled, remove a coin from the bowl and either plant it in rich soil or throw it into moving water so that your message of need will be carried through the earth. When the bowl is filled with coins, use all but a few (these “seeds” always remain in your bowl) for random acts of kindness, like getting treats for the neighborhood kids or helping a homeless person. Your generosity will return to you threefold to keep the magick of benevolence, both mundane and divine, with you always.

A New Moon Water Wishing Spell
This spell is best performed outside by a natural well or spring. A cauldron filled with water can work as well.
You will need:
Small Stone or Pebble
Hold the stone in your right hand and concentrate on your wish. Walk deosil (clockwise) around the well/cauldron, three times while saying the following:
“I circle thrice and it’s begun,
I make this wish,
Of Moon and Sun.
With harm to none,
And good to all,
this spell is done.
So mote it be!”
Drop the stone in the water. It is done.
New Moon Wishing Spell
Raise arms up to the sky with palms facing up and say:
“Goddess of the New Moon Fair
I ask thee hearken to this prayer.
May that which I desire be granted
With intent these words are chanted”:
(State your wish three times and then say)
“Thrice my rhyming spell is spun
To make this wish come true for me
Thanks I give for it is done
This is my will so mote it be. “
New Moon Spell
I like to write a cheque to myself on the New Moon. I make it out to myself and write ‘paid in full’ in the amount box, then sign it from ‘the law of abundance’. I fold the cheque into three and add three drops of peppermint essential oil on top after laying it in the bottom of a dish I keep on my altar, and then I sprinkle over it dried mint and lay three sticks of cinnamon on top. This works really well to keep enough money coming in.
At the very first sign of the Moon, just the slightest glimpse of her, stand outside and look up. Turn around deosil (sunwise or clockwise) three times and make a wish on the New Moon.
