A great time for money spells. Sometimes, you’re not asking for money just for the sake of having money, as sometimes you need money to pay a bill.
I recommend that you do this spell on a Thursday, and in the hour of Jupiter.
This spell requires good visualization.
Take a green candle and anoint it with cinnamon oil.
Take the bill or write on a piece of paper the amount of a bill you owe and whom it is to. You will need a candle that can burn for 7 days.
Place the paper under the candle.
Hold your hands over the candle and say:
“This candle burns to light the way for the money I need to pay this bill in a way that harms no one.”
Light the candle and burn patchouli incense. Meditate for about 5 minutes as the candle burns. Visualize yourself writing the check or purchasing the money order for this bill and putting it in the mail. Burn the candle every day around the same time for 7 days and 15 minutes at a time.
Also, burn patchouli incense every day too with the candle.
On the last day, burn the paper with the flame from the candle and let the candle burn completely out.
Let me know if this works for you, or if you modified this spell, what did you do?
If you have an important job interview coming up, the power of this spell could boost your chances of success.
•Some silver tinted leaves, like silver birch
•Your career resume, educational certificates
•The ad describing the job you want
•One white altar candle
•One silver taper candle
Do it on a Wednesday, when the moon is waxing, but not waning. If the interview has been scheduled for the weeks when either Gemini or Virgo rule, so much the better.
Almond blossom makes an appropriate altar adornment and if you have a silver cloth at hand, then use it. If not, an indigo one will do almost as well. Amethyst or tiger’s eye are the most suitable crystals, and a bowl of dill on the altar will add potency to the magic being made.
Light the white candle and, focusing on the flame, spend a minute or two meditating on the job you want. See yourself shaking hands with the interviewer and imagine yourself doing the job successfully. Ask your favorite deity or deities to smile on your endeavors before lighting the silver candle. Standing in front of the altar, with your arms at full stretch above your head, say:
“The job I want is in my ken.
Make me first among all men,
May those who interview me see,
That the one they need is me.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.”
As the candles burn down, again see yourself doing the job until the flames flicker and die or time runs out and you have to snuff them out. Thank the elements for their presence and bring the ritual to an end.

Litha (the Summer Solstice) marks the longest day of the year. During the summer solstice it is the time of the first harvest and the celebration of this bounty.
In times gone by this Sabbat was celebrated with large bonfires, they were burned to promote purification, fertility, and love. To leap over the bonfire was to assure a good crop and to encourage these qualities in themselves. This Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, fire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and felt element of transformation.
Litha comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase Aerra Litha, which means “before Midsummer.” At this time the Goddess is fully pregnant and the Sun God is at the height of his power. Litha is the traditional time for gathering magical and medicinal plants to dry and store for winter use. In Wales, Midsummer is called Gathering Day. Midsummer Night’s Eve has traditionally been a day to perform love and healing magic. This is also a perfect time to communicate with fairies, forest sprites and pixies.
June was said to be the luckiest month to be married in, and is the time of the mead moon, or honey moon. One tradition was for newlyweds to drink mead daily for a month after their wedding, which is why the post wedding holiday was named the honeymoon. Even though the days begin to grow shorter after the Summer Solstice, the time of greatest abundance is still to come. The promises of the Goddess and God are still to be fulfilled.
Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualised manner, and people past and present acknowledge the rising of the sun on this day. At Stonehenge, the heelstone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from the centre of the stone circle.
This is a good time for protection magic, empowerment magic, male rituals and becoming in tune with nature spirits. It is a time of bravery, strength and overcoming.

Make a Gods’ Eye
I love doing spells like this, as I consider it an insurance plan for the entire family that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Personally I think it’s a good idea to do something like this at least every year, and if you have a family member who is not well, then consider doing family health work at least every month.
Here is an idea for a family health spell, to help protect your household from colds and flu.
• A wooden spoon
• A china bowl
• Some Mint
• A clove
• Some grated lemon peel
• A bay leaf
• Some rosehips
• A cotton or muslin handkerchief, or a mojo bag (as pictured)
• A red ribbon or other decorative piece you love.
The best time to cast this spell is on a Sunday.
Use the wooden spoon to mix all the ingredients together in the bowl, while you recite this chant:
“I conjure thee to be a protection, I invoke the Magick of old,
To keep my family healthy and well, So mote it be.”
Place the mixture onto the handkerchief and tie up the ends with the ribbon. Or If you’re using a mojo bag, place all the ingredients in the mojo bag, and seal the magic mojo bag while saying the incantation over and over.
Hang the healing pouch somewhere in your home.
Each month you may wish to cleanse your pouch in the light of the full moon, or by running it through some incense, and saying the incantation again.
Some people also like to feed the pouch or mojo bag with a oil relevant to healing, or with some rum. This lets the bag no that it’s still alive and important to you!
Ostara (March 21)
As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.
The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility.
The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.
Leafy green vegetables, dairy foods, nuts such as pumpkin, sunflower and pine, flower dishes and sprouts.
Herbs and Flowers:
Daffodil, jonquils, woodruff, violet, gorse, olive, peony, iris, narcissus and all spring flowers.
Jasmine, rose, strawberry, floral of any type.
- Planting seeds or starting a Magickal Herb Garden.
- Taking a long walk in nature with no intent other than reflecting on the Magick of nature and our Great Mother and her bounty.
Make your own Ostara Oil!
•1 part almond oil
•1 part violet oil
•1 part elder oil
•1 part patchouli oil
•1 part lavender oil
Mix in bottle. Anoint on altar and candles.
One of my favorite psychotherapists passed away recently.
(with a tip of the hat to Coleman Barks)
Grant me Love!
Please, make it simply
Make it crack and melt the hard places
Where I am so sure of myself.
Make it stiffen and enliven the weak places
Where I am uncertain, ignorant,
and secretly afraid.
And please make it horribly “inappropriate”
So I must really know you in myself,
Myself in you,
To give up everything that is not love
(Because it is so hard to do it willingly. . .)
I pray this
Knowing it will ruin me.
Let me be ruined by love,
So that I may come back to you
Without pride, or stupidity,
– Or pretense, or opinions –
or any sense of separation –
Like a lover,
Hungry and ecstatically full
All at the same time!
-Jeremy Taylor, United States
Sacred Poems and Prayers of Love, 1998
•Any silver items
•A nosegay of white flowers
•A bowl of fruit
•A dish of coins
•A crystal of snow quartz or an opal
•One white altar candle
•One silver taper candle
Spells expressing gratitude are best cast on Mondays during Pisces when the moon is waxing or full. Wearing white clothes reinforces the expression of thanks being offered.
The first five things on the list should be on your altar while you cast this spell to represent the things you are thankful. Light the white candle and as it burns meditate on it. Give silent thanks for the gifts you have received and for which you are saying thank you. Now light the silver candle, rise to your full height and bringing your hands high above your head, say:
“By the light of the sacred flame,
I thank you for the magic cast in your name.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.”
With thanks in your heart, watch the candle flame until it flickers and dies, then close your ritual as you usually do and leave your sacred space.
•1 pink candle
This spell is to give the illusion of a change in appearance.
Recite the following words while looking into the flame of a pink candle:
“Blazing fire As you dance
Call upon My sacred glance.
Call upon My second sight
Give me (fill in what you want)
With your light.
Blazing fire Shinning bright
Give me now My second sight.”
Q: What does the ACE of cups tarot card mean in my love reading?
“Letting Your Love Shine”
Now is the time to let your love shine, and to let your cup run over with love, affection and vitality. The Ace of Cups is a card of promise and opportunity, a new or fresh perspective that is mirrored right back to you by the Universe.
All Aces are tied to new unformed energy. So even if it does manifest as something material for you — a new romantic interest or some happy news — the bottom line is that it creates a “feel good” energy which reverberates throughout your very being.
As this is the Ace of Cups, and Cups refer to emotions, intuition and feelings, it’s likely to manifest on one of these levels. Love and romance for starters. But also affection, intimacy, sharing, closeness and the expression of feelings.
This card represents opportunities for happiness and fulfillment. It speaks of fertility, birth, newness and promise. It speaks of seeing every day as a brand new day, ripe with creative potential and opportunity.
Think of how many opportunities you have — some you may not have yet considered. You could be thinking of starting a new creative project or breathing life into one you’d put on hold. Or you may be the recipient of some happy news — such as the birth of a child or a loved one planning a wedding.
The Ace of Cups encourages you to follow your heart and let love lead the way. It reminds you that there is still a lot of good in the world and that all of the love you send out will be returned to you in kind.
You may be starting a new relationship or expressing yourself romantically — whether or not a serious relationship develops from that flirtation. You could hear from an old love (or feel the urge to reach out to someone from your past), or you could be planning a romantic getaway with a loved one.
It’s the process of falling in love that reveals to you your purest, most perfect potential. It’s when you put your best foot forward and show the world what you’re capable of — and the Universe responds in kind.
If you’re already in an established relationship, this can refer to a renewal of affection and passion. It can represent a rebirth, a more formal commitment or the onset of a new chapter in your relationship.
It’s all about seeing your capacity to love and express feelings mirrored right back to you — through a new love interest, a friend or family member, or the eyes of a child. The Ace of Cups refers to feelings, emotions, intuition and most importantly “love” in its purest form.

Q: What does the two of cups tarot card mean in my love reading?
“Finding Your Other Half”
This is a time of bonding with another and joining your hearts together. The Two of Cups refers to falling in love, finding your other half, and connecting with someone on such a powerful level that the two of you become one.
It’s not always a love connection. It can refer to a close friendship or business partnership as well. It refers to the “sum of the parts being greater than the whole,” which reminds us that two heads (and hearts) are better than one.
Whether you’re in a relationship or just looking, the Two of Cups is all about falling in love — either opening yourself up to new experiences or reigniting a connection with someone you’re already involved with.
It’s this process of falling in love that reveals to us — in perfect clarity — ourselves at our very best. It’s where we put our best version of ourselves forward and the Universe responds by opening up unanticipated doors.
The Two of Cups is known as the “Love” card as it refers to that love at first sight sense of finding your other half. It’s the mutual attraction card, the “soul mate” card, and so much more. It’s the process of falling in love or renewing a love connection that replenishes itself over time.
There’s a synergy that pulls two people together and echoes their feelings back to one another. In this respect the Two of Cups is more about falling in love with yourself, as seen through your loved one’s eyes.
The Two of Cups often refers to a brand new relationship — one that hasn’t fully gotten off the ground. It’s more about falling in love than it is about being in love. It’s more about that heady state of limerence than the comfort or monotony that comes with long-standing unions.
Whether they can still withstand the test of time is still very much up in the air. But established relationships can also use a reminder of what it was like to fall in love.
If you meet someone new during this time, consider it an opportunity for growth. It could be the yin to your yang — or it could just be a friend who shows you the true meaning of the word.
You may also be working on revamping your current connection or reuniting with a loved one. Whichever it is, be grateful for the opportunity to see yourself through someone else’s eyes.
