This section is always going to be a work in progress since I will be adding new spells as I write or discover them. They are intended to be a starting point, not an ending point. By this I mean that the purpose of this site is to help you to write your own spells, not provide them to you. A spell you have written yourself will be more powerful to you than a spell you have found elsewhere. The intent is exactly aligned with what you hope to achieve, the wording feels more natural to you, and you will bring more energy and power to the spell. These spells may be considered examples of what can be done. Use them, but also use their construction and wording as a point of departure for creating your own magic. A spell may be written for any purpose, to fulfill any need, your imagination is your only limit. The traditional types; love spells, money spells, protection spells; are but a beginning.
There are two things that I feel that I must remind you of again at this point. First, you can't just do a spell and leave it at that. You will have to do some work on the mundane level as well. You can't live by spells alone. Magic will not solve all your difficulties with no other effort on your part. If you want a job, you must still look for one, if you want love, you must interact with people socially, if you want a new apartment you must look for one. The spell needs a way to manifest. Remember, real magic is not like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, things do not just materialize in your living room.
Second, think long and hard before you go trying to manipulate others with magic. The threefold law is not something that we older witches made up to take all the fun out of magic for you younger ones. It's a real, natural law. You get back from the universe three times the energy you put into it for good or ill. Cursing people, doing spells to cause them harm, trying to magically snag somebody you're lusting after, all have repercussions. Even if what you are trying to do isn't going to harm anyone, think about it before you do a spell for it, is it something you really want? Will getting it truly make you happy? It's the old adage, be careful what you wish for, you may get it.
You must put your own energy into a spell for it to work, the magic is in you, not the words and actions of the spell. Also, there are times when you will do a spell for something you want and not receive it, despite all your efforts. These occasions are a message that something else may be going on. Perhaps getting what you want would be harmful to you, or to another. Perhaps the timing is not right to receive what you are asking for and it is being delayed. Perhaps the energy level of the spell is insufficient. For these reasons, I cannot guarantee any of the spells presented here. You will find that it is easier to get what you need than what you want. This is at least partially due to the increased energy you put into meeting an actual need, something truly important to you. It is invested with more energy than something that simply would be nice to have.
You may repeat a spell if need be, but don't go on ad nauseum, try it for three lunar cycles and if it hasn't manifested by that time stop. You are getting a message. There may be a reason that the spell is not working for you. Examine your motivation, is it strong? Examine your spell, is it clear and invested with the proper energy level? Examine yourself, are you over reaching or attempting to manipulate a situation which would be better left alone? What are your expectations, are they realistic? Magic is not supernatural, it is a natural force, that depends on natural laws. Magic may be used to obtain the possible, not the impossible. Perhaps you should rephrase your request or downscale your objective. That money spell you cast is not going to turn you into Bill Gates, but it can help you pay your phone bill.
You should not perform spells or rituals when you are under the influence of drugs of alcohol, overly tired, ill, or out of sorts emotionally or psychologically. The results, if any, may not be what you anticipated. Drugs and alcohol, and even extreme tiredness, prevent you from consciously bringing your energies to bear on the spell. You are not able to concentrate or take the necessary responsibility for your actions. When you are ill you should concentrate on healing, not on other magic. You will not be able to invest the required effort to raise the energy needed for manifesting your desire, your bodies energy is in use already fighting the illness. Do simple healing spells for yourself, see the Doctor and follow his suggestions. Wait for magic until you feel stronger.
Magic requires concentration and effort, any circumstance that interferes with this process interferes with the magic. Emotional peaks can put you in the wrong frame of mind to conduct spells. When you're depressed your energy level is low and your self confidence may be suffering. You need both of these in full working order to accomplish magic. Try a bit of meditation and some affirmations to improve your mental state before attempting a spell. Conserve your energy by concentrating on relieving your depression, don't attempt major magic at this time. Anger may make you feel as if you could accomplish great things, you feel powerful, have enormous energy and focus. It does not make for good magic though, you are distracted by the emotional level, and coming from a negative place. It colors your view of the world and the situation at hand. Don't do spells when you're pissed off, wait till your emotions are more under control. Besides, you can't really turn that jerk into a toad anyway!
The following is the first installment in the spell collection, there will be more as soon as I can get them typed. In the following list of spells I have used the following conventions: when a spell is to be done as part of a full ritual with a circle cast I have indicated this by the notation "With Ritual". I have included a list of materials required for the ritual in the description of the spell. When a dressed candle is called for it is to be dressed with an oil appropriate to the intent of the spell, if it is a healing spell use a healing oil and so on. While you are dressing the candle you should visualize the object of your spell and its intent. For those spells which do not require ritual, they are simply spoken at the time of the need, I have indicated this by the notation "Spoken". These may simply be recited whenever the situation arises. There are additional spells in the section on Candles.
Spoken - Just what it says it is, a spoken spell to find a parking place.
Goddess to my voice
Mirror Spell to Return Negativity to it's Sender
With Ritual - To be used when a known person is intentionally or unintentionally sending negative energy your way. You will need either a photo of the person or a slip of paper to write their name on, a protection incense, a small box, enough small mirrors to line the box, some glue.
After the circle is cast, take the box and using the glue, line the inside with mirrors. Place within it a photo of the person who is sending you the negative energy or a slip of paper with their name on it. State the purpose of the box aloud including the pertinent details. Something like: "This photo/name is (name), as I place it in the box I am placing (name)in the box. Let the criticism/negative energy/harassment/______ that (name) is directing toward me be reflected back to him/her by the mirror box. They shall harm me no more, they shall reap as they have sown, as my will so mote it be!" Visualize the energies reflecting off the mirrors and returning to the sender. Close the box. Keep the box sealed until the harassment stops, at which point you may ritually open it and end the spell.
With Ritual - on a Friday. This is not a spell to attract a specific person, it is intended to attract a person who will be compatible. You will need a teaspoon or so each of the following herbs: Basil herb, Cardamom pods, Marjoram herb, whole Cloves, Rose petals, and a Tonka bean. If you cannot easily obtain the Tonka bean you may do without it. You will need some red, natural fiber, fabric - a quarter yard will be enough, a needle and thread. Cut two squares out of the fabric. A small piece of rose quartz and/or lepidolite is an optional, but desirable ingredient. Place your materials on the altar. You should have a love incense and if possible, a piece of rose quartz on the altar for this spell.
After the circle is cast and the love incense lit, place the two squares of fabric, right sides together, and sew around three sides of the square. As you are doing this, visualize yourself as a lovable and loving person, in a relationship that is fulfilling and happy. When you are done sewing, place the squares on the altar and state the purpose of the spell aloud in your own words. Something like: "I seek to have a love in my life, someone special with whom to share the wonders of life, to grow with and learn with, someone to know well and be known by, my ideal partner."
Take up the fabric square and turn it right side out. Spoon the herbs into the bag one at a time saying aloud the appropriate line as you add each one: "Basil, sacred herb of Mars, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek. Cardamom, sacred herb of Venus, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek. Marjoram, sacred herb of Mercury, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek. Cloves, sacred herb of Jupiter, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek. Rose, sacred herb of Venus, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek. Tonka, sacred herb of Venus, I call upon your powers to bring to me the love I seek." If you are using the rose quartz say the following as you add it to the bag: "Rose Quartz, stone of peace and love, I call upon you lend your powers to my quest, assist me in finding the love I seek, open my heart that I may be ready to love and open my eyes that I may see it for what it is."
Take up the needle and thread and sew up the last side of the bag. As you do so, visualize the fruition of the spell, you are in a loving relationship of two equals that is fulfilling and happy. When you finish, form the vision as clearly as possible in your mind, feel the love surrounding you and wrapping you in a pink mist, sense the warmth. Holding the bag in your projective hand (the one you write with), visualize and feel the energy in the form of the pink mist flowing from you into the bag. As you will the energy into it, say: "I invest this amulet of love with the power of my vision, the power of Venus and Aphrodite, the power of the herbs (and crystal) within it. It will bring me the love I desire and make me ready to receive it. As I will, so mote it be!" It is done. Dismiss the circle and carry the amulet bag with you at all times.
With Ritual - On a Sunday. This is a general protection ritual which can be renewed on a monthly basis just before the full moon. It will not make you impervious to danger, but it will guard against mishaps, minor disasters and ward off negativity in general. If you are in a situation which involves actual danger you will need something stronger than this, perhaps you should consider mundane help in the form of dialing 911. Protection spells are preventative, and should be done in advance of the event. Once things have progressed more immediate help is called for. You will need the following materials: the Protection incense of your choice, a dressed white candle, the usual implements for the altar.
After the circle is cast and the protection incense is lit, light the white candle and place in the center of the altar. It will serve as a focusing point for your visualization. Sit, kneel or stand before the altar and look into the candle flame. Gather your thoughts and meditate for a few moments to still your mind. State clearly and aloud: "In the names of the Goddess and the God (you may substitute the names of your particular deities if desired) I call upon the sacred white light of protection to come to me and envelop me in it's brilliance, to cradle me in a warm, safe and protected sphere of luminosity, guarding me from all harm and negativity, to act as a shield against ill fortune and accidents."
Visualize the white light beginning to form around the candles flame. As the white light grows, it extends toward you and wraps around you. Visualize the white light as clearly as possible, and see it surrounding you in a bubble of protection. This visualization must be as realistic as possible, feel the safe, warm glow of the white light around you. When you have the vision of the light as vivid as you can get it, state clearly and aloud: "The white light shall stay with me and hold me safe against the storms of the world till the full moon comes again. As I will, so mote it be!" Dismiss the circle.
Spoken - Designed to be used each day to develop a more accepting attitude toward others. May be used as needed, or included in your morning affirmations. I got the idea for this spell from a book which I recommend called "Everyday Magic" by Dorothy Morrison.
Goddess please help
me to be,
With ritual - On a Saturday. This is a general purification ritual which can be used on a regular basis if desired, or you can use it to remove negativity you come in contact with in the mundane world. You will need the following materials: a purification bath herb mixture (see Other Herbal Preparations), your favorite purification incense or straight sage, 2 dressed white candles, a purification oil if desired.
Run a bath using the purification bath herb mixture. Light the two white candles and place next to the tub. Take a nice soak being sure to fully immerse yourself several times. If your tub is too small, or you are too tall for total immersion, use a container to pour the herb infused water over your head several times. When you are done, if possible allow yourself to air dry, if this is impractical due to your living situation towel dry. Carry the two white candles to the altar and place them in the center. Light the purification incense and the altar candles and cast your circle. Meditate for a few moments to clear your mind.
Stand/sit before the altar and state: "I call upon the power of the Goddess (you may specify a particular Goddess if you like), to cleanse me of all that is not of the light. To remove all negative vibrations and energies which I have come in contact with that they shall not hinder me or harm me. I cast off all that is evil, all phantoms and spells set against me. I would be purified, keeping only that which is in accord with my path and will aid me in my journey." If you have chosen to use a purification oil as part of the ritual annoint yourself with it at this time, stating: "This essence of purification shall seal me against the darkness, attracting all that is positive and helpful to me." Finish the ritual by stating: "I stand before the Goddess bathed in the white light of purity and ready to continue on my quest. As I will, so mote it be!" Dismiss the circle.
Breaking Up Spell
With ritual - On a Sunday (Sun for new beginings) or on a Thursday (Mars for courage) or on a Saturday (Saturn for endings). This spell is intended to be used when you are breaking off a relationship and want a smooth transition for all and a parting on good terms. It will not break up a couple, only ease a parting that has already begun. You will need a photo of the two of you together, or a drawing to represent the two of you. You will need the following materials: a dressed pink candle, a pair of scissors, your favorite peace incense or straight lavender. Place all your materials on the altar. Light the incense and the altar candles. Cast the circle.
Light the pink candle stating: "Let this candle signify the relationship between ______ and I, it's flame bright as our love began." Meditate on the nature of your relationship, think about some good times you had together, consider the reason you want the relationship to end and then visualize your life after the relationship and all the wonderful opportunities which lie ahead of you both. Pick up the photo/drawing and state: "This is the two of us. We started with love, we continued with love, now let us part with love." Pass the photo/drawing through the incense smoke and state: "There shall be peace between us, now and always. No recriminations, no useless blame. We end as we began, in peace and love." Use the scissors to cut the photo/drawing between the two of you and state: "The connection that bound us now is parted, we are now he/she and I. May we both find that which we seek, in harmony with our natures. As I will so mote it be." Extinguish the pink candle. Dismiss the circle. The photo pieces may be cast into moving water, if it is available to you, to drift their separate ways. As you place them in the water say: "Let the waters speed your heart on it's journey to a new destination, and wash away the sorrow of this parting." If this is not possible, you may choose to bury them separately saying: "Like a seed, full of potential, I plant your heart that it may bloom and grow in a new garden. May the embrace of the earth ease the sorrow of this parting."
With ritual - on a Thursday. This is a general prosperity spell to help with cash flow problems. It is intended to attract money and material prosperity into your life. You will need a dressed green candle, your favorite prosperity incense, a High John the Conqueror root (or a Galangal root, or piece of Ginger root if you don't have the High John), and prosperity oil. Gather all your materials and place them on the altar. Light the incense and the altar candles. Cast the circle.
Light the green candle saying: "I come here on the day and in the hour of Jupiter the ruler of fortune, I light the flame of prosperity to signify what I seek." Pick up the root and pass it through the flame of the candle stating: "I purify this root to serve as a lasting token of my desire spoke this night" Pick up the prosperity oil. Anoint the root with the oil stating: "High John (or Galangal or Ginger) I annoint you with this essence of prosperity that you shall serve to draw to me the money that I need. May it's power add to your own to speed good fortune on it's way." Pass the root through the smoke of the incense stating: "I add the power of this perfume of prosperity to those already bestowed, that it shall increase your power still more to bring me the prosperity that I seek." Place the root in the center of the altar and meditate for a few moments on the great need you have for financial help. When you have this clearly in mind, visualize a green light coming from above to surround the root and yourself with it's glow stating: "Prosperity decends upon me and this token of my desire, the rich green glow of fortune shines brightly for all to see. My financial woes are at an end, as I will so mote it be." Allow the candle to burn out and leave the root on the altar in front of it. Dismiss the circle. Carry the root with you to draw prosperity.
Freezer Binding Spell
Spoken - This is a very simple spell to stop someone from causing trouble for you. It doesn't harm them physically or emotionally, although it is an attempt to manipulate anothers actions, therefore you may wish to examine your sense of the meaning of the Wiccan Rede and how you wish to conduct yourself. Are you comfortable with doing a spell to affect the actions of another directly or does this break your personal code of ethics. Personally, since no actual harm is done, and under the right circumstances, I would not have a problem with it but you will have to decide for yourself. You will need a freezer, a zip lock bag, some water, a piece of paper and a pencil. You can do this spell in the kitchen, you don't need a circle or altar.
Meditate if necessary on the actions the person is taking that you wish to stop so that you can distill it into as concise a statement as possible. You want one or two sentences. Write this on the piece of paper with the pencil along with the persons name saying: "This slip of paper is (name), and his/her actions against me. I hereby freeze (name) and bind him/her from causing me harm. As my will so mote it be." (If the person is not known to you, use the following alternate wording and omit the name on the piece of paper. "This slip of paper is the unknown one and their actions against me. I hereby freeze them and bind them from causing me harm. As my will so mote it be.") Fold the paper into a compact shape and place the paper in the baggie. Fill the baggie with enough water to submerge the paper. Place the water filled baggie in the freezer and freeze it solid. Keep it there until the difficulty is resolved, then thaw and bury the paper in the earth, pouring the water on the ground and saying: "I release you from the binding, but enjoin you not to harm me again. As my will so mote it be."
With ritual - on a Sunday. This is a general healing spell that may be used for either illness or injury, either physical or psychological. You may do this spell for yourself, or for someone who asks you to, but you should not perform it for a person who does not want it or who does not know about it. You will need a dressed light blue candle, your favorite healing incense, 1/2 tsp. eucalyptus leaves, 1/2 tsp. camphor gum, 1/2 tsp. catnip, 1/2 tsp. lavender, a 6" square of light blue cloth and a 24" long piece of cord. Place all your materials on the altar. Light the incense and the altar candles. Cast the circle.
Light the light blue candle stating: "This candle represents the health of (name), as it burns brightly so does his/her health grow." Place the cloth in the middle of the altar in front of the candle. Spoon the herbs one at a time into the center of the cloth while saying: "The powers of these healing herbs shall bring health to (name) and heal them of their (illness/injury). May their strength be mighty, their action quick, (name)'ll be feeling spritely, no longer sick. Ease (name)s mind, body and soul, heal them now and make them whole. Soon a healthy (name) we'll see, as my will so mote it be." Gather the edges of the cloth together and wrap the center of the cord once around it and tie the cord to hold the herbs in the bag thus formed. Lay the necklace on the altar in front of the candle. Dismiss the circle. Allow the candle to burn out. Give the necklace to the person for whom the spell was done and have them wear it till they're better. If desired, you can give them some healing oil to annoint the bag with each Sunday.
Spoken - As needed, perhaps even on a regular basis to bless and protect your furkids. No materials are required however you may want to anoint your pets forehead with some protection oil, this is optional.

A Spell for Prophetic Dreams
A simple yet effective spell, the main caveat is to be sure you extinguish the candles prior to falling asleep. Prepare your bedroom prior to working the spell. Daub a bit of jasmine oil on your pillow. Place a notepad and pen on the bedside table so you can record your dream upon waking. Brew a cup of mugwort tea and place it on your altar. You will need two light blue candles and some Damiana to smolder or smoke.
Light the altar candles, a circle is not necessary. Light the pale blue candles on your altar.. Either burn the Damiana on coals as incense or smoke it.. Go with the feeling induced by the Damiana, let it carry you away a bit. You want to cultivate a trance-like state. State the purpose of the spell clearly and what you hope to achieve, for example:
"God and Goddess,
let me see,
Sip the tea as you chant the words. Gaze at the curls of smoke, inhale the scent of the damiana. When you feel ready to sleep say "As my will, so mote it be" and blow out the candles. Go to bed and sleep. When you wake write down what you recall of your dreams right away.
