Tuesday and the Perfect Ritual – Mars’ Energy Ritual


Mars’ Energy Ritual

Try your hand at this fiery ritual for courage, passion, and winning battles. This ritual will take several days to complete, until the pillar candle burns all the way down. Also, personalize this spellwork by incorporating into it as many warm Marslike colors and other coordinating magickal correspondences as you can come up with. You just read an entire chapter devoted to Tuesday and Mars associations; here is your chance to flex your witchy muscles a bit and to show yourself what you have learned.

• 1 red pillar candle
• Coordinating-style candle holder (black wrought iron would be perfect)
• A nail or large pin to engrave the candle
• Any Mars-associated stones: red jasper, ruby, garnet, bloodstone
• A pinch of powdered garlic
• A pinch of allspice
• Your philter for courage and protection
• A lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell

Take the nail and engrave the symbol for the planet Mars into the side of the candle. Take your time and make it look as nice as you can. Also, consider adding a bit of spice to this Tuesday ritual. Toss a pinch of powdered garlic in the candle holder to promote protection. Try adding a pinch of allspice to bring good fortune and success. You could also dig out a small hole in the top of the pillar candle and sprinkle the spices inside of it. Then, as the candle starts to burn, the hole will seal up with melting wax and eventually tually incorporate the herbs into the body of the candle. Or just place the candle on top of these powdered spices inside the candle holder, and you’re all set.

In addition, think about using the philter recipe from this chapter, and dress the pillar lar candle with it for some increased power. Set a few Mars-associated tumbled stones next to a candle holder containing the pillar candle-try a ruby for power and a red jasper to encourage protection and defending yourself.
Another suggestion would be to work with those pretty red glass marbles again, and arrange them on your work surface to set an enchanting mood. Take the time to make the spell candle setup unique and attractive. Put some effort into it if you want good, strong results. Light the pillar candle, and then repeat the following spell verse three times:

Tuesday is the day for fiery, aggressive Mars
Live with courage and passion, and you will go far
Candle colors for today are midnight black and red
These will draw success and deflect all harm and dread

Help me to win my battles fairly, both great and small
While I show kindness and compassion to one and all
Candle burn and magick spin
Let my ritual now begin.

Close the spell verse by saying:

By all the power of three times three
As I will it, then so shall it be.

Let the candle burn until it is consumed; figure three to five days, depending on the width of the pillar. Make sure you have it in a safe place to finish burning, such as inside of an old metal cauldron or tucked into an unlit fireplace.

Please note: If you cannot leave the ritual candle safely burning, then snuff it out when you leave and relight it as soon as you are home. It may take a few days longer, but the magick will still turn out, especially since you are taking the time and energy to tend the ritual candle so carefully. As you relight the candle, say: As this ritual candle relights, so does my magick once more ignite.

Happy casting!

Friday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell

Egyptian Comments & Graphics

Friday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell

For many, Friday is the last work day of the week. It’s considered the fifth day of the work week and, also, the “cut loose” day. By Friday night, people are out having a party. That makes Friday the perfect day for lust, banish, fast-grant, and find spells . This day is so powerful (energy wise). That’s why whatever you do on this day will, usually, have a strong effect. If you want things out of your life, the darkness and power, associated with this day, bring the energy you need for that. If you need strong, immediate results, this is your day, as well.

A Tarot Spell for Pregnancy and Childbirth

Frigga is the Norse goddess that is associated with childbirth, motherhood, and the home. She is a powerhouse of maternal energies and gentle wisdom, which makes her the perfect goddess to call on for this type of spell. Gather the following supplies:
1 green or white candle with matching holder or a plain seven-day candle
The Empress and the Two of Cups tarot cards
Grains (dried barley or stalks of wheat, or a bit of whole wheat flour)
A cauldron, cup, or small bowl to hold the grains
An item of sympathy for the baby, like a baby bootie or an ultrasound photo
12 inches pink and baby blue satin ribbon to tie around the candle holder
An item of sympathy for the mother, such as a small lock of her hair or a photo of her or the two of you taken while she’s pregnant
Fresh flowers in a vase (use whatever is in season, in the garden, or affordable)

If your due date is fast approaching, you might want to set up this spell where you can see it every day-try the top of your dresser or on a shelf in the living room. If you prefer, try one of those large seven-day types of candles (you know, the kind that comes in a tall glass jar). That way, you can light and relight the candle as the mood suits you. If you are working this spell for your partner, make sure to get their permission sion and try working the spell together as a couple about to become a family.

Set up this spell in an arrangement that pleases you. Place the grains or the flour inside of the cauldron to keep the area tidy. Try propping up the tarot cards and photo against the candle, cup, or cauldron. During the pregnancy, I would repeat the spell once a month. As you get into the last week of the pregnancy, I would repeat it every day. (The seven-day candle will come in handy for that.) If you are working this together as a couple, then adjust the words accordingly.

Frigga I do call, protect and watch over me today
Bless this child that I carry as it grows stronger each day
Tokens of fertility are the grains and the flowers
Candles and cards are symbols of a new mother’s power
Guard us both during the labor and delivery
Help me to be strong and to have a healthy baby.
Close the spell with this line:
By the Mother Goddess, the moon and sun
By the power of love, this spell is done.

Allow the candle to burn for as long as you wish, just be sure to keep an eye on it. Replace the grains and flowers with fresher ones as needed. Good luck to your family, and best wishes for a safe delivery and a happy, healthy baby!

Wednesday’s Perfect Ritual – Clearing the Air with Blue Lace Agates

Witch WeavingWednesday’s Perfect Ritual – Clearing the Air with Blue Lace Agates

Try this spell for yourself, and see the difference that it makes when you work magick in balance with all four of the natural elements.

• 1 blue votive candle
• 1 votive cup
• 4 blue lace agates
• A picture of your home and/or your family and pets (whoever lives in the house)
• Lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell

Place the blue votive in the votive cup. Set the photos of your home and family on either side of the candleholder. Next, arrange the four blue lace agates in a small circle around the candle holder. As you place the tumbled stones one by one, say these lines:

Blue lace agates, lend me your power
Cleanse this home in this time and hour
Around this candle I create a ring
These four blue lace agates are just the thing.

Now light the spell candle and hold your hands out and over the stones and candle. (Not too close, we don’t want you scorching your witchy fingers.) Finish the spell by saying the following verse:

I now call the four elements on this Wednesday night
On the wings of Mercury, I quickly set things to right
By blue lace agates and candle flame, this spell is begun

Now remove all negativity, and let it harm none. Allow the votive to burn until it goes out on its own. (Most votives take four to six hours to burn completely out.) When the spell candle is consumed, take the four blue lace agates and place one in each of the four main corners of your home. This will keep the spell moving along quickly, and it will reenforce the cleansing. Clean up the rest of your spellwork supplies, and put up the pictures of your family in a prominent place so you can enjoy them.

Depending on your goal, you will need to choose a candle color that is appropriate for your task. Different colors represent different things, for example, if you want to use this spell to gain money,  you choose a green candle, because green represents money (as well as other things). If you wanted love, you would use a pink candle (or red if it’s actually lust you want).

Take the candle and make 7 notches in it, all equally apart.

Using virgin olive oil, dress the candle, rubbing the oil on it from the middle to the bottom, then the middle to the top.

Place the candle in a sturdy candle holder (preferably metal, glass may shatter) and light the candle. Concentrate on your task while the candle burns down to the first notch. Burn the candle each night to the next notch until it has completely burned out.

Look at any god correspondence chart on a wiccan website to see which color you want for the different types of spells you could adapt the above basic one to.

You can also write out what you want in rhyme and burn it after saying it like an incantation. 3×3 times works well. Keep any ashes and wax and make into a ball as a Talisman or keep in a spell box in case you wish to reverse the spell
