The Witches Magick for Friday, February 23 & The Waxing Moon – Charm for Courage

 
Materials
Ace of Swords from your favorite tarot deck
1 purple candle

 
Make a copy of the card by either scanning and printing, or taking it to a copy machine. Cut off the excess paper, then place the image in front of the candle and light the wick. See yourself holding the sword in your hand, and going into battle calmly and unafraid. Hold the image in your hands and empower it by saying something like:

 

Lord and Lady, Moon and Sun
Elements and Ancient Ones
Lend Your powers to this charm
So they mix— both cool and warm—
To bring the courage that I seek
Bring it forth in words I speak
Bring it forth in every action
Until it meets Your satisfaction
And every doubt slips far from me
As I will, so mote it be

 

Leave the image in front of the candle until the wick burns out, then carry the image with you.

Relationship Charm Spell

Relationship Charm Spell

On the night of a waxing Moon gather a pink candle, two rose petals, lavender oil and a small china plate. Cast a circle and light the candle. Contemplate the flame as a symbol of love’s light. Place the rose petals on the plate and add three drops of oil while saying:

“Love’s truth burns bright,
I welcome my soul mate on this night.”

Tip the candle to drip wax onto the petals, enough to form a coin sized token. Mold the wax and the petals together. Keep this token safe for six Moons then bury it beneath a rose bush.

Celtic Tree of Rowan Protection Charm

Celtic Tree of Rowan Protection Charm
Author: Karri Aldrich

Also known as the Mountain Ash, the Rowan tree has long enjoyed magical eminence for it’s protective properties. WIth the festival of Imbolc just around the corner, it is a perfect time to clear your space of negative energy by making a protection charm for the remaining winter days ahead:

Burn a sprig of rosemary to cleanse your home, sweeping the rooms widdershins (counterclockwise) to banish stagnant energy. If possible, find a branch or twig from a Rowan/Mountain Ash tree. If Rowan is not available, use a sturdy branch of Rosemary. Wind a red ribbon around the branch and with each wind say:

“The power of Rowan
protects me and thee”

Hang the branch above your door.
You’re done!

Determination Charm

Determination Charm

This charm uses the power of the Elements to give yourself added energy to carry on in your quest for a better life. Like four Goddesses, who are sisters, the Elements each have their own unique quality that is powerful by itself, but when combined, become even more divinely powerful.
You will need a piece of carnelian and a red candle.
Wash the carnelian in cool water for at least a minute before using it as a charm. Draw a circle of light and call in the Elements. Light the red pillar candle, and dedicate it to the four sisters:
“Sisters of the Earth, Wind, Fire and Water
Let your light shine bright tonight.”
With the piece of carnelian in your power hand, move to the north point of the circle, and call out:
“Divine Sister of Earth
Give me strength.”
Moving to the east point, call out:
“Divine Sister of Air
Give me hope.”
Moving to the south point, call out:

Divine Sister of Fire

Give me creativity.”
Moving to the west point, call out:
“Divine Sister of Water
Give me love.”
Now that the piece of carnelian has been programmed with the power of the four sisters and their corresponding Element, keep it near you as a reminder of your internal strength and determination. When you are done, bid farewell to the elements and pull up the circle. Allow the candle to safely burn down.
