The Down and Dirty About Love Spells
I really like this guy. Can you do a love spell for me? Wiccans are faced with this question a lot.
Love spells can be quite sticky. There’s a right way and a wrong way to approach them.
The Wrong Way to Do a Love Spell
Janet really likes Mark. So she buys a book on love spells from the local book store. She finds one she likes and performs the spell that night on Mark.
The next day she sees Mark. There’s something different about him. Soon he asks Janet for a date. During the date Mark can’t keep his eyes off Janet.
In the next days, Mark can’t get enough of Janet. At first she quite enjoys the attention. He calls every night.
Then he follows her to the gym, grocery store, a movie theater. He shows up at her house unexpectedly, at all hours of the day and night.
Now, every time she sees Mark, Janet jumps, startled.
Janet wanted love; she now has fear.
Do you see what happened? Janet made her own stalker by casting a love spell upon him. Two terrible details arise when you impose a love spell on someone. First, it’s unethical to mess with someone’s free will. Second, one could create a pattern in which a stalker may become violent.
The Right Way to Cast a Love Spell
Ellen hasn’t been on a date in quite a while. At an evening class she attends each week, she likes three guys, but she’s not sure about them.
She wants to find the right fit and someone who truly loves her. So Ellen decides to do a love spell. Ellen first decides to make the love spell about herself—that is, she seeks to become more accepting of love. During her ritual, she writes down what she’d prefer to find in a mate. She asks the Gods to guide her and that special person to meet.
A few days later, a guy named Sam arrives at the evening class. Sam is meeting one of the other three guys who attend the evening class. Sam strikes up a conversation with Ellen. Some days later, Sam asks Ellen out on a date. They really hit it off.
Do you see the difference?
Janet did a love spell on Mark, and such an imposition should never be done.
On the other hand, Ellen did a love spell to make her more accepting of love and to be able to see the one she was looking for. She also asked the Gods to help guide both her and her right match to find each other.
That’s a big difference.
What you will need:
- Pink candle
- Rose Oil to dress the candle. (You can make Rose Oil by diluting rose essential oil into olive oil. Make sure it is the therapeutic grade essential oil.)
- Candle holder for pink candle
- Table for the altar
- Candles and candleholders for the four directions in the colors that represent each (red for south, blue for west, green for north, yellow for east)
- Red candle for the God and a green candle for the Goddess. (These candle colors are preferable but not mandatory. You may also use white candles, which represent all colors.)
- Working candle to represent the element Fire
- Cup or chalice
- Sword. (If you don’t have one, use an athame to cast the circle.)
- Dish of salt, preferably sea salt
- Bowl of water
- Bell or chime
- Altar cloth to keep wax and the other things off the table
- Wine or juice and some sort of cake
- Taper (Light the taper by using the working candle. Then use the taper to light the other candles.)
The Basic Circle Script
Note: This script is written for someone who is casting alone.
1) Knock three times on the altar. Ring the bell three times.
2) Use the lighter to ignite the working candle. Place the lighter down on the altar. (The other candles will be lit later when you use the taper.)
3) Light the charcoal (if you are using it) from the working candle. (The incense will placed on the charcoal later.)
4) Take your athame and place its tip into the flame of the working candle. Say:
I exorcise* you o creature of fire. And I consecrate and bless you in the names of the Goddess and the God that you are pure and clean.
(*Note: When we speak of exorcise here, we are purifying the item by driving out any negative energies.)
5) Trace a pentacle (a five-pointed star) in the air above the flame. Pick up the working candle and raise it up above you and imagine the Gods’ energy filling the candle’s flame. Place the candle back on the altar.
6) Take your athame and place its tip into the bowl of water. Say:
I exorcise you, o creature of water. And I consecrate and bless you in the names of the Goddess and the God that you are pure and clean.
7) Using the athame, trace a pentacle in the water. Pick up the bowl of water and raise it up above you and imagine your energy and the Gods’ energy filling the water. Place the bowl back on the altar.
8) Take your athame and place its tip into the salt. Say:
I exorcise you, o creature of salt. And I consecrate and bless you in the names of the Goddess and the God that you are pure and clean.
9) Using the athame, trace a pentacle in the salt. Pick up the bowl of salt and raise it up above you and imagine your energy and the Gods’ energy filling the salt. Place the salt bowl back on the altar.
10) Take your athame and place its tip into the incense. Say:
I exorcise you, o creature of Air. And I consecrate and bless you in the names of the Goddess and the God that you are pure and clean.
11) Using your athame, trace a pentacle in the air above the incense. Pick up the incense and raise it up above you and imagine your energy and the Gods’ energy filling the incense. Place the incense on the lit charcoal.
12) Take your athame and scoop up a blade of the salt. (Or you could your finger.) Place this pinch of salt into the water. Repeat this step two more times. Now, with the athame, mix the salt into the water and finish making consecrated water. With the athame, trace a pentagram over the bowl. Now, pick up the bowl of consecrated water and raise it up above you and imagine your energy and the Gods’ energy filling it.
13) Take the consecrated water (the salt and water mixture) and dip your fingers into it. Dab some of it on your inner wrists and forehead. Say:
I bless myself with Earth and Water.
14) Take the censer filled with the burning incense and wave the smoke over you. Say:
I bless myself with Air and Fire.
15) Take the consecrated water and use your fingers to asperge (sprinkle with consecrated water) the circle. Starting with north and moving clockwise, walk a complete circle around the perimeter, aspersing each corner as you go. When finished, place the bowl back on the altar.
16) Pick up the censer. Use your hand to wave the incense smoke around the circle. Starting with north and moving clockwise, walk a complete circle around the perimeter, waving the smoke as you go. Be careful not to burn yourself or anything else. When finished, place the censer back on the altar.
You have just cleansed the space and yourself. Now let’s continue by casting the circle.
17) Take the athame. Envision energy being channeled from you and coming out the tip of your athame [You point the athame outward, away from you as you create the circle.] Starting with north and moving clockwise, walk a complete circle around the perimeter. As you walk, say:
I conjure you, o circle of power, that you be a boundary between the seen mundane world and the spirit world, that you protect me and contain the magick that I shall raise within you! I consecrate and bless you in the names of the Goddess and the God. So mote it be!
18) Finish at the east quarter (direction).
Now it’s time to “call the quarters.” (This refers to the four directions.)
19) Pick up the athame and the taper from the altar. Light the taper from the working candle. Go and stand in the east corner of where your circle boundary is. Starting with the east candle, say:
I summon, stir, and call you up, o mighty ones of the East, element of Air. Come guard my circle and witness my rite.
20) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame. Then light the quarter candle for east. Say:
Hail and welcome!
21) Move clockwise to the south candle. Say:
I summon, stir, and call you up, o mighty ones of the South, element of Fire. Come guard my circle and witness my rite.
22) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame. Then light the quarter candle for south. Say:
Hail and welcome!
23) Move clockwise to the west candle. Say:
I summon, stir, and call you up, o mighty ones of the West, element of Water. Come guard my circle and witness my rite.
24) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame. Then light the quarter candle for west. Say:
Hail and welcome!
25) Move clockwise to the north candle. Say:
I summon, stir, and call you up, o mighty ones of the North, element of Earth. Come guard my circle and witness my rite.
26) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame. Then light the quarter candle for north. Say:
Hail and welcome!
27) Return to the altar. Using the taper, light the Goddess candle, saying:
Welcome, my Lady!
28) Using the taper, light the God candle, saying:
Welcome, my Lord!
You have now completed casting your circle.
Take up the pink candle and sprinkle some of the blessed water on it and say:
You are cleansed by water and earth.
Next wave the pink candle over the burning incense and say:
I charge and consecrate you by fire and air.
Do the same process with the rose oil and the lodestone.
Next, take your now cleansed and consecrated pink candle and carve your name on it with the word love.
Next dress the candle with the rose oil and say:
Little candle, I name you (your name) you now represent the love I attract to me.
Place the pink candle into the candle holder and place on the pentagram. Put the lodestone at the base of the candle.
Take the taper and light it from the working candle and light the pink candle saying:
I am love and love comes to me.
As the candle burns sit and concentrate on the candle flame, seeing love flowing in the form of light. When the candle has burned halfway down, take the candle and drop three drops of wax on the lodestone. Return the candle to its original place.
Continue to see the love radiating from the candle, and now also see the lodestone pulling love to you.
Watch the candle until it burns completely out. Carry the stone with you to help attract love to you.
Cakes and Wine Ceremony
After any ritual, it is important to replenish and ground your energy. Begin with wine or juice.
1) Take the cup from your altar and pour the wine or juice into it. Then take the athame and dip its tip into the wine or juice. Say:
As the athame is to the male, so the cup is to the female, and so joined bring union and harmony.
2) Pour some of your blessed wine or juice into the offering bowl or plate on your altar. Say:
To the Gods!
You can now partake of the beverage.
3) Take your athame and point it over the cake. Say:
Blessed be these cakes that they bestow health, peace, joy, strength, and that fulfillment of love that is perpetual happiness.
4) Take one of the cakes (or just a piece) and place it in the offering bowl or plate. Say:
To the Gods!
You can now partake of the blessed cakes.
So, what do you do with the blessed offerings in the offering dishes? You certainly don’t just throw it into the garbage! They are gifts to the Gods. Take them outside to your garden where you can leave it on the ground to help nourish the Earth.
If you do not have a garden at your home, you can take the offerings out into the woods and leave them there. Some Wiccans who live in the city set the blessed offering out on their porch for local animals to partake. Be sure to only leave biodegradable food. Avoid wrappers or containers that will not decompose.
It is very important to dismiss the energies you have called for your circle. Be sure to take down the magick temple (the circle) you erected. And certainly, dismiss the quarters!
To close your circle:
1) Take your athame and hold it up and stand facing the east. Say:
Hail mighty ones of the East, the element of Air. I thank you for guarding my circle and witnessing my rite. May you depart to your fair and lovely realms. I bid you hail and farewell.
2) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame.
3) Continuing, moving in a clockwise circle, stand facing the south. Say:
Hail mighty ones of the South, the element of Fire. I thank you for guarding my circle and witnessing my rite. May you depart to your fair and lovely realms. I bid you hail and farewell!
4) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame.
5) Moving clockwise around the circle, stand facing west. Say:
Hail mighty ones of the West, the element of Water. I thank you for guarding my circle and witnessing my rite. May you depart to your fair and lovely realms. I bid you hail and farewell!
6) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame.
7) Moving clockwise around the circle, stand facing north. Say:
Hail mighty ones of the North, the element of Earth. I thank you for guarding my circle and witnessing my rite. May you depart to your fair and lovely realms. I bid you hail and farewell!
8) Trace a pentacle in the air with your athame.
9) Return again to face east. While walking the boundary of the circle, say:
Fire seal the circle round,
Let it fade beneath the ground,
Let all things be as they once were before.
The circle is now no more,
Merry meet, merry part,
And merry meet again!
So mote it be!

What about love spells in a current broken relationship? Is it still against someone’s free will? Would you do a spell for release instead? Is it against the Rede if there was once love in place?
About your question: “What about love spells in a current broken relationship? Is it still against someone’s free will? Would you do a spell for release instead? Is it against the Rede if there was once love in place?”
Yes, it is still against the person’s free will. If they no longer love you then you would be messing with this person’s will. You would do a spell to release you both. You can use my separation ritual.
I won’t mind if he stalks me ….wud luv d attention !!!
I hear you. It’s hard to deal with a situation when our heart feels in a tight grip.
Doing a love spell in which you push your will on someone can create dangerous situations – like getting a stalker.
Improperly doing a love spell will also mess up your karma.
It will be against the guy’s will. I strongly feel you need to follow my post’s direction.
Avoid doing magick on someone who may not be interested in you. Bad things DO happen when spells are done in an improper manner.
I have read this,however,is it possible that someone on here or knows about these things be prepared to demonstrate these love spells to me ????
talk is ..well…cheap…seeing /experiencing is believing
Would really appreciate it if someone in the know would take up this challenge (though I very much doubt anybody will…to..erm…conveniently “undoable)
Thank you for communicating with me here in the comment section. Please know that in the article I provided what’s necessary to actually conduct the spell. Each individual ends up experiencing the power of Wicca on a personal level. You would know if this spell works – for you – by actually performing it. (I must say that sometimes, a Wiccan can do a spell to the letter—but he or she may have an internal subconscious block that must be healed first, before gaining the result the person prefers).
The concept of “creating a stalker” ,or drawing in a person into our space (real-world,not just in the mind)via some (I dont actually know what is a spell,besides it being some ritual/sequence of using some materials….jiggling them around etc) ..and that these actions will CAUSE a desired effect to manifest in some place or situation realtime somewhere on this planet.
It would be of my absolute interest to see or experience such (or similar ) thing….excuses barred none.Again I pledge anyone reading this,and is in the know-how…be prepared to actually demonstrate this theory applied and the results there of.I will assume personal responsibility for ANY repercussions,effects,whatever those may bring. If you can,then contact me email@example.com
I replied to your previous comment.
Here, I want to emphasize that real world consequences can arise when one forms a misguided spell.
From my Wiccan Elders, I have heard of truly terrible experiences when someone does a love spell on a particular individual.
I have just requested for a love spell on my ex, father to my kids but i have included that may it serve the highest purpose for all beings and i requested for only posive effects,i hope it will never get back at me
To be helpful to you, I’ll share some helpful practices:
1) Avoid doing a spell on anyone without their permission.
2) Instead, consider saying a positive prayer for the person.
If you hope something will “never get back at you,” avoid doing that action.
